    We had a great day out on the water with Michael. In less than ideal water and wind conditions he worked hard to put us on fish and we ended up with a nice catch of trout, redfish and flounder (and caught quite few more fish below the limit). They were really accommodating when it came to changing dates due to weather and the location for easy pick up... I will use them again for sure.
