    Captain Corey was fantastic! Went out of his way to get the “right” bait (which it was!). We caught enough fish, on a really windy day, for the kids to have wonderful memories. He’s great with kids, has plenty of interesting stories and just a pleasure to be around. Book with Corey! You won’t regret it!

    Awesome fishing trip! Booked two days back to back for my boys and extended family, but was canceled on a month out and pushed to Captain Corey. Turned out to be the best thing that could have happened! Captain Corey was super available, coordinated and communicated well in advance, adjusted trips to give us the best experience. First day was slower (cold weather) and he adjusted timing to make it awesome. Limited out second day because of him!!! Haven’t met a team yet that will work as hard as he did to put us on fish and ensure we had fun! Like fishing with family! We will book with him each time from here on out. Thank you.

    Wow, if I could add 10 stars, that might be enough. Captain Corey was knowledgeable, personable and he offered up a treasure trove of tips and anecdotes that made the time fly. He even gave me great advice on where to get the best local seafood for my dinner. I caught a massive stingray on our outing, which is an experience I won’t soon forget. I highly recommend his guide services, regardless of your skill level. His love for fishing is matched by his expertise. You’ll have a great time, even if the fish aren’t biting. But he seems to know where they are, even when other boats are out of luck!
