    Jeff is fantastic! Great trip.

    We had an awesome crabbing trip with Captain Wade. We limited out on crab catching 60 LARGE crab in Tillamook Bay. Captain Wade was knowledgeable, friendly, and found us the best crab in the Tillamook bay. He also took us to a place where they cook the crab and then he helped us clean them. Highly recommend Captain Wade. You'll have a great trip!

    We had the best boating experience and crabbing experience that I believe a person could have. The weather was horrible and the catch the day before was minimal. But Craig our crab guide took us right to the exact spot where the crab we're waiting and boy did they fill the pots. It was my wife's first time out and she was not really ecstatic the way the morning started but she had a giant smile on her face at the end. Thanks again Izzy. See you this spring.
