Very enjoyable trip. Mike did his best to put us on fish early in the season , when there probably wasn't a lot around anyway. He didn't disappoint. I would definately rebook there for the next time.

Aside from which species you are going after, where is the better fishing - in the sound or in open water?

I don't understand how this one got good review, but I had a horrible experience here. We paid $700 for 5 hour off-shore fishing, but end up the boat didn't go off-shore and we didn't get informed before we get on the boat. Off course, we didn't get many fishes, only 3 tiny fishes. I called the store owner and no answer, and I emailed her, but no reply.............
