Went fishing on Monday, July 10, 2017

A truly wonderful experience for my wife and I and on our 29th Anniversary. Two of my brothers accompanied us and we are all experienced fisherman (my wife Jackie is the best). So, with all that experience. we all rate this trip as exceptional and give it two thumbs up !. Captain Sloan and mate Charlie are quite simply the best. We recommend the Black Rock and it’s crew to anyone who wants to enjoy themselves AND catch a lot of fish!
