Wonderful day fishing with Captain Nick, friends, and crew assistant. Nicks a cheerful, knowledgeable and hardworking captain who found the fish for us. Learned a lot about the area and species in the bay. Would do it all again in a heartbeat!

They went above and beyond to try to get everyone their limits by staying out longer than required. They moved as soon as the fish weren’t hitting. Very good crew! Totally recommend.
