Captain took us out on Friday. Weather was iffy with winds and chop forecast to make it not the best day and Captain offered to take us Saturday versus Friday, but Friday was the only day we could go because of friend returning to Virginia Saturday morning. We ...Read More attempted a little offshore but too rough, so he took us to a more protected area and put us on the fish. When action go slow, he would move us to another spot. Very helpful on teaching us proper technique, used different bait and equipment was first class. We limited out on redfish and caught many redfish just under the legal limit which were released. Caught variety of fish and for the weather conditions, it was a good day of fishing under any conditions. Cleaned our fish when we got to the dock and returned home after a good day of fishing. Would definitely recommend him and would go fishing with him again. He worked hard for us from start to finish.

I had asked about fishing, scalloping, spear fishing, and catching shark-and he made it happen. It was a long hot day, but we scalloped (not very well, but not the Captain’s fault), and my daughter finally got to reel in her shark! Spear fishing - well that wasn’t ...Read More the captain’s fault either. We caught a wide variety of fish (more than on any previous trip), including a massive stingray! Got to keep several fish and scallops, and our kids had fun (15 yr old boy and girl). Would recommend! Thank you for taking us out.
