Had an awesome time despite my getting a little sea sick. Everyone else on my charter enjoyed themselves too. They were informative and we liked how interactive it was. We had a good day on the water and maxed out on our Walleye. Thank you Jim and everyone at Making Memories charter for the awesome first experience I had. We also had a couple who have gone on a dozen others and said that Captin Jims was the best yet.
