Captain Bentley and Patrick were awesome. They made the experience memorable, and we plan to make this a tradition. Great boat and great crew!!
Captain Bentley and Mate Patrick did an awesome job finding fish and putting all in the boat. Great day!
Had a great day and made a lot of memories!
I highly recommend, Captain Bentley and his crew were amazing!
Outstanding fishing trip, fish were hitting and the weather was cooperative! Capt Bentley is a professional captain with numerous hours snd experiences under his belt. He knows his stuff!!!!!! Also one of the few Captains who loves letting the next generation experience off shore fishing. He has two who will never forget this trip. Thank you Capt Bentley …
Captain Bentley was second to none. A few buddys and I come into town and gave less then a 24 hour notice to try and go offshore and he delivered. Caught a couple dozen fish even in rougher water. Will definitely be back for a full day trip next time.
Captain Bentley &his first Mate Harget supplies nothing but a first rate experience for me and my buddy on our day out! His vessel is second to none…...... I would highly recommend these guys to anyone…. I WILL BE BACK!
Captain Bentley did everything that could be expected to make our trip with 3 kids successful. On the scheduled day he gave us the choice to cancel as he believed the seas would be too rough for kids on a first trip. We delayed our trip a day and everyone caught fish. Will use captain Bentley again. …
