Carl was a phenomenal! He had so much patience with my 6 year old son, and made sure he caught as much as he could!!! If you going to do a fishing charter this is the one!!

Carl was very patient with all levels of anglers. We had a great day and caught lots of fish. I would definitely use him again.

We appreciate the feedback. Sometimes when the kings are not in strong or not biting we need to settle for some smaller resident coho. It’s also true that if we have two trips in a day we might come in early in the morning trip...More
