Captain Kenny was outstanding. He got us reeling in fish right away. We kept him bust baiting hooks and netting big fish until it was time to call it a day. Great day fishing. Highly recommend, thank you very much. Looking forward to another fishing trip with him next year.

Our skipper was awesome! I am terrible with names but I believe it was Captain Kenny. He was great with the kids and we caught our dinner with leftovers to spare. We will definitely be back next year
