Captain Lenny called us a few times the day before and the day of the charter giving us weather updates When the weather took a turn for the worst he redid his schedule to accommodate our short stay being from out of town During the charter he went out of his way to help us all and made the ladies feel very comfortable Going again next year bringing the rest of the family I highly recommend this charter

Had a terrific trip. Capt. Lenny assured me that my Grandson from Tennessee would get into some big fish and he was right. Had action from the very start till the end of trip. Largest was approx. 21 lbs. with at least 5 others topping 15 lbs. Capt. Lenny treated us with respect and was extremely helpful to my grandson and one other member of our party who had never been big water fishing.  If you want a knowledgeable, polite, and patient Captain who knows where the fish are….you need to book with Slipknot Charters and Capt. Lenny.  We ended up 13 catches out of 19 hookups. Great trip.
