    Andrea H. with Corey B. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Capt Cory put us on fish!!! Although the action started out slow, Capt Cory worked until he found fish. Once found, the action was non-stop and very chaotic at times, which gets the heart pumping and makes you realize you are alive. As chaotic & exciting as is was, we never lost a single fish that was brought to the boat. Two thumbs up to Capt Cory for providing this father&son a fishing trip to remember. 5 STAR CAPTAIN
