Tim was very professional and made the trip enjoyable. We had three pre-teen boys, their mom, and grandpa (me), and Tim handled the large group very well. In spite of windy conditions and young fisherman, he got us lots of action and a nice catch of fish, including reds to 27”. I definitely recommend him.

Tim always goes the extra mile every time I have booked him for my fishing trips. He is very knowledgeable, fun, patient and full of tips on how to fish. Every time I have gone fishing with Tim I have always caught fish. He will definitely put you on some fish and knows his bay and he has tons of spots for fishing. I highly recommend Tim for your next fishing trip.
