Great trip with Captain Jesse!  Very personable and knowledgeable.  Everything was perfect, he even ordered some great weather!  Would fish with Captain Jesse again, and certainly would recommend.

Took two kids and two adults and had a great time.  Captain Jessie made it an enjoyable experience and was great with the kids.  My 10 yr old nephew loaded up with fish and we all had a great experience.  Would definitely recommend!
