I have so many things to say. But I will keep it short. I had such a good time. We caught so many fish. It was the best time ever. We live in Michigan and I usually get very board of fishing. I was never board on Captain Shawns boat. Once they stopped biting he would turn the boat around... More

Captain Shawn gave my husband and I a relaxing and fun day out fishing. The atmosphere was wonderful and you could tell he really is passionate about what he does. He was very informative about the wildlife in the area and knowledgable of the fishing spots. We will definitely use him again!
