    Captain Mike was Professional, Punctual and productive !! I will definitely use him again when I come to New Orleans. He has us limits out in an off season. He did not try to oversell us initially and then totally exceeded our expectations. To top it off were eating fresh fish less than thirty minutes after we were docked !! Thank You ! Captain mike

    I had an awesome time out on the water with Nicholas. We headed down past Port Sulphur and put in mid-morning and cruised to some prime poling grounds. On what ended up being an unseasonably windy and cold day Nicholas put me on a bunch of big reds and sheepshead and even got me hooked up with a monster bull red that would have been my PB on the fly if he hadn’t shook the hook. Overall an awesome day on the water.

    Had a great day with Seth despite the weather. I was only in town for 1 day and could not reschedule so we decided to go out and make the best of it. We caught a nice 22" redfish on first cast and after a few hours work we had another 22" and a fat 27" redfish in the boat. Seth stayed positive the whole day as we tried different spots and techniques. Will definitely fish with him again, hopefully in better weather.
