    Jason was great. Fishing started out slow on the long baits. So Jason set out some poles out in the surf for my son to catch some pup sharks. My son caught three and this kept him engaged. Then the big reel started screaming. All in all great morning.

    First off Danny communicated well about where to be and what time the day before our excursion. Once we got started it was clear that he was very knowledgeable and knew where to go to maximize our fishing efforts. Him and his deck hand made sure that our family of 4 always had a baited pole in our hands and were ready to grab any fish that we caught! We would absolutely go fishing with Danny again!
