Great boat and equipment, Captain smoked a lot. Had I known that I would’ve booked with a different outfit.  I brought two of our kids, so the smoking really bothered me.  If you smoke you’ll probably have a good time.

Unfortunately we did not catch any fish, but we were onto them in many areas I would have liked to try the areas where the fish were more repeatedly to try and get a strike, but the scenery was very nice. The captain Doug was a very friendly fellow and willing to try for some bottom fishing as well.
