Capt. Turk is very knowledgeable and dedicated to getting the best charter for his guests. He put us on the multiple Springs. I went home with my limit, too. Love to do his charter again.

Went fishing on June 26, 2018
My son and I had a great day on the water! Although the time of year wasn’t perfect for fishing, we still landed 8 fish (1 was a 3’ shark) of which we were able to keep 2 Chinook. Captain Turk is very pleasant and accommodating and a joy to have met and spend a day with. Should we return, we would definitely choose this charter again!
