Captain Craig was awesome! It was a slower day for fish biting but he got me on 3 new fish species I’d never caught before.

It's obvious Capt Craig knows what he's doing... We were on fish right away as soon as we got to our first spot. Took my two sons on their first saltwater charter and they had a blast. Each one caught their biggest fish of their life, including a trophy Snook. ...Read More

Craig is very knowledgeable about the bay and where the fish are. We had a good time on our trip.
