Captain Mag was great, very knowledgeable and we felt like we had a friend with us instead of a captain. We felt really comfortable with him and caught a lot of fish and when we go again we will only go with him on his boat. Highly, highly recommended.

We had an amazing time with Captain Payton and Herby. They were very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what we needed to do and all the species we were catching. We caught several while trolling then it was nonstop action when we stopped to deep drop. Highly recommend ...Read More
