Rick was great to have aboard, he became a regular costumer after the 1st trip he took with 2 yrs ago. Now he comes out at least 2-3 times a month.
This day was non stop action from the 1st cast.

Had a excellent time . Our group was unexperienced fisherman. Until   Capt Tom and mate Cameron showed us everything we needed to know. They where extremely helpful and accommodating ... and very understanding to our inexperience . The boat was even cleaned and well stocked at the end
they filleted abd iced down our fish we kepted. We Caught fish all day long…..and from what he said two of us had are limits….We Would highly recommend Big T & Son’s Fishing Guides and will be back for some late summer fishing !!!

We chartered Captain Tom for a 30th birthday fishing trip, and it was a great time.  Everyone in my group was inexperienced, and Captain Tom took the time to show all of us how to properly fish for Fluke/Flounder.  He and his first mate Cameron were very attentive and kept us on the fish the whole day.  The 7 hour trip flew by, and by the end we had caught 40+ Flounder (16 keepers), which we all thought was great for first-time anglers.  We were never waiting too long to catch something and at one point all 5 of us had a fish-on.  Captain Tom and Cam cleaned, skinned and filleted our catch for us and later that night we fried up the best Flounder any of us had had.  Overall it was a great experience and we would definitely charter Captain Tom again!

I was happy to have such a great group of guys and lady they paid attention and they cought a lot of fish and had a great day on the water. I love to teach and show the world of fishing to first time fishermen. Glad Sal and his group had a great birthday trip.
See you again!!
