We had a great time with Captain Al! Quick and easy meet up and had us fishing in no time. We had lots of fun fishing and chatting. Caught some trout and other fish. We will definitely book again!

We had a great time catching several different species of fish throughout the day. We did better than most involved in the ongoing tournament during this past weekend so we were happy with our catch.
