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.
