3 teenage daughters (19, 18, 16) and my Son 13. We all had a great time. Everyone will catch fish. From catching our bait and then going fishing. Highly recommended!! Don't forget to buy a Tshirt. My son loves to wear his. Thanks!

We had a really nice, laid-back trip. Captain Craig was very kind as well as knowledgeable and made sure that we caught fish. We caught stripers and mackerel. Really good day!

We had a blast with Captain Craig. Loved the whole experience of fishing for our own live bait to catching stripers! We took home some Mackerel and Striped Bass and both were delicious!
