Had a great time fishing with captain Fred "Frenchy.". Caught fish after fish, and Captain Fred even cleaned fish for us to take home to cook. Highly recommend this charter.

A true pro, Captain Mike works hard to make sure his clients are taken care of on his boat. We have caught plenty of fish on two separate trips under totally different conditions. I️ will always use this service
