Well we scheduled a morning four hour trip, and the wind was bad, we’re not able to get across the bay, we caught one keeper a flounder, we caught a variety of fish just not the size limit, so with said it was an awesome trip and Captain Matt was awesome, just wished we’d of caught more keeper fish, but I guess that’s how it goes sometimes you catch and sometimes you don’t.

My son and I had a great time bay fishing with Captain Matt. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the different species we were fishing for. He made everything easy for us and worked hard to make sure we had a very pleasant trip. We would definitely fish with Captain Matt and Hyped Up Outfitters again.
