Due to outside circumstances, Capt John of Extreme Backcountry, could not make the trip. However, he had the courtesy and professionalism to get a substitute charter instead of cancel our trip. He hooked us up with Skinny Water Charters and Capt Travis. Our trip went on as planned and we had a great time. Caught some fish, learned some things and saw some beautiful scenery.
