    Highly knowledgeable guide and hard working mate. Capt. Buck and Rodney provided top notch guiding and service and, in spite of foul weather, kept us on the bite throughout the day. Highly recommended by a seasoned fisherman.

  • ★★★★★
    Excellent all around

    W.gary L. with Frank B. of Stone Harbor, New Jersey

  • ★★★★★
    Frank clearly knows these waterways and is a true master of Stone Harbor / Cape May. He took us to 7 spots in 4 hours to find the fish and even stayed out with us longer than the original length of the trip. It also seems like he really cares about his customers and was great with the more green members of our group. Would easily book another trip next time we're in the area. --Attison with Captain Experiences
