Went fishing on Monday, January 2, 2017

Captain Chris was knowledgeable and an expert fisherman. He shared his skill and knowledge and made the day enjoyable. I booked the trip for my partner who is a very skilled fisherman and he got to just fish and enjoy because Captain Chris baited my hooks helped me cast under the docks and made sure I had fun, which is usually Jim’s job. So everyone had a good time.

I never had a Captain work so hard to get us on fish. Even though it was a slow day we still caught fish. I would charter with this Captain anytime and recommend anyone to do the same. My wife and I had a great time.
