Capt. Hollis Forrester’s Guide Service is run by a very passionate fisherman – Captain Hollis, who had started fishing at an early age and was influenced by his father. Fishing is in his blood, as his great grandfather, grandfather, and father were all avid fishermen, and whose footsteps he had followed in becoming a licensed captain through the United States Coast Guard. Captain Hollis will happily teach you the art of wading and drifting, which he believes are great fishing techniques for catching great trophy fish.
