If you’re angling not only for fish but a great time, Captain Brooks is your guy.  Despite his years of experience, I’m willing to bet he had never taken four individuals who knew less about fishing.  But this did not deter our fearless Captain Brooks, who confidently navigated us to where he knew they would be waiting and once there, patiently taught us a course in Fishing 101.  As our picture shows, the results were good.  Either we’re naturals (we’re not) or our Captain knows how to cast his knowledge to those who know little and bait our inherent abilities into reality (what actually happened). 

All puns aside: 5 stars, worth the trip, and would book again. 

Thank you Captain Brooks!

Captain Brooks was fantastic.  If we hit a slow spot, he pulled up and moved to a new location after a few minutes of low activity. He found us a couple of terrific spots, and we nailed them. Captain Brooks is very knowledgeable of his craft, and we are looking forward another great fishing day. THANKS!
