Captain Jon did a great job. Very friendly and patient with my little guy. He let him help him with bait and stuff. We started out kinda slow but wound up with a few good keepers. Would definitely ride with him again!

Couldn’t have asked for a better trip. This was the first time out with the whole family including 4 young boys. Captain Jon was awesome and put them on lots of fish. They had an absolute blast. Would definitely recommend using him for your family trip.
