Six of us did a half day session with Kellen today. He and the boat were ready when we arrived, we left the dock almost immediately, we went 19 miles offshore in about 30-35 minutes, and we caught well over 100 fish in 3 1/2 hours on the water. Kellen was totally prepared and kept a pretty rapid pace baiting our hooks, taking our fish off the hooks, etc. When we got back to the dock, Kellen had our keepers filleted and on ice in 10-15 minutes. It was an excellent experience which I highly recommendation to any anglers.

We spent most of our half day riding in the boat. We probably had the opportunity to drop lines in the water and actually fish for a total of 30 minutes. We never stayed at one spot more than 10-15 minutes and then he had us pull our poles in and we were off to another spot. I think we had 15 minutes were all five of us on the private charter had our poles in the water at one time. I think it was too much to have 5 people and only a captain. There should have been someone else there to help us. Captain Keller was very nice, but he seemed very stressed and overwhelmed.We would definitely not spend that kind of money again with this same company, we will book our next trip with another company.
