We went on a half day trip with Captain Justin. We each cought fish and had a lot of fun. We didn’t get any keepers this time, but I would definitely go out with him again if I have a chance.

We had a great trip and overall a really fun time. Justin worked really hard to make the trip great and really knew his stuff. This was real fishing not just a joyride on the boat for an afternoon. My boys loved it and we’ll be back with Justin next time we’re down.
