I waited exactly a week before leaving this review. I wanted to cool off from our extremely horrible experience on captain Todd’s tugboat. Everyone has an off day and I hope that is what we caught this on , I would hate to think that he treats people on a regular basis the way we were treated. There are two things that we didn’t count on. 1. A complete lack of southern hospitality and 2. To fish basically off the bank and in two feet of water. Captain Todd repeatedly baited our hooks and cast them himself, that’s fine his equipment, we got it. However upon snagging and repeatedly loosing hooks in a rock reef just off the shoreline, he would get upset and yell “goddammit”! Well that was not on us buddy look in the mirror. Or baited hooks flying past your eyes was also a frequent incident . My son managed to catch a few bait fish which we had done off the bank in the hotel. The only Todd was really worried about was getting paid what I would consider an insane amount of money to be hauled around in a tugboat just off the bank. Would never ever recommend ever!

Captain Todd went above and beyond to make our experience truly memorable! He was quick to bait lines, cast our reels, and provide a lot of laughs and knowledge along the way! 10/10 recommend!

Fishing with Captain Todd was fantastic. Our group included 3 women of various fishing experience, from avid fisherwoman to almost no experience at all. He could not have been a better guide for us. He was helpful and patient the entire time and best of all, we caught fish. I would definitely book Captain Todd again for any age group or fishing experience level.
