Even better, all tackle (including rods, reels, lures, and bait) and fuel are furnished for all trips at no extra charge.

So this definitely was not the experience we were hoping to have. Our Captain showed up late it very much appeared that he was hungover and or he just didn't have any desire to be there. Everybody has their bad days but speaking as a former hunting and fishing guide he had no interest in doing his job. If I wanted to sit on a boat and catch catfish I could have stayed home. He made no effort to go find fish. And again it really just came across as he didn't care if we were satisfied one way or another.

Trip was good. Timely departure, waters were nice. Unable to catch much fish that day, but fish were there just not biting. Overall experience was good. I liked Captain Shawn and will do future bookings.
