Professional . Very knowledgeable. Provided everything needed for a fun fishing trip. Had live bait! Not frozen! Just bring your sunscreen and drinks. Neil does the rest, baits the hook Casts when needed. Nets the fish. Un hooks the fish. Takes photos.

Had a great day with my son and I. Caught many nice sized fish and many species. Captain Neil gave us many good tips about fishing. Been on many back water fishing charters throughout the years and this was probably the best one yet.
