    Cpt. Drew took my father, uncle, cousin, and I out for a four our trip and I couldn’t have been more impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, and spirit. He knew all the tricks to get us going, and within minutes, we had our first catch. We caught over 15 fish on our trip and brought a few home for dinner! Will be looking forward to booking him next year as well!
