Captain Sonni is very knowledgeable of the water ways around Poquoson. Our catches were Kroaker, mullet, and sand bar sharks. As we were catch and release plus, we don’t like taking pictures, we have few to share. I would recommend this trip to anyone.  It was enjoyable and I’d do it again. Kudos to Marshland Expeditions.
