Had afternoon trip with Captain Gary and he called day before telling us we could go earlier if we wanted if we wanted. Started about 10 and Capt Gary worked very hard teaching my sons everything as this was their first time in the bay. Things started slow but ...Read More he kept us moving looking for better spots where we caught a few fish. Gary even made sure my 14 yr old got to reel in first fish since it was his birthday. Near the end of the day, he decided to take on another ride and then we started to catch quite a few fish. We stayed there well past our scheduled appointment and caught a bunch of keepers and released many more. He was intent on my boys catching fish regardless…Gary cleaned our fish quickly and we were on our way. Definitely recommend Capt Gary and plan to return for our next trip!
Capt Gary is extremely knowledgeable and will work hard to put you on the fish. Thanks to this fishing trip I was able to land my personal best Trout.thanks again Gary and we will definitely be fishing again
