Capt Zach and Capt Phillip had to cancel due to weather conditions, which was understandable. My son and I were bummed as we had anticipated this trip all week. Capt Zach went above the call of duty and was able to work it out where we could go the following ...Read More

I can’t recommend the Malia Ann and Captain Eric and Firstmate/Captain Kyle enough! From catching our own baitfish, to absolutely slaying King Mackerel, the entire experience was first class! It doesn’t get any better then having two guys who were born and raised in the area and on the water. ...Read More
