Fished with John today. He makes a great effort to ensure that you get onto the fish and have a great time. Great value for a half day trip. Good boat and good equipment.

Fantastic morning on the water. John was knowledgeable, informative and extremely patient with the less experienced. Put us on some great spots with good fish and some ripper bites. Highly recommend!
