Great afternoon with our boys

Captain David was great. We did an afternoon with our boys and they loved it. Everyone caught something, even the kid who hates fishing ;) We'd use him again! And we got to see a bunch of different spots and catch a variety of fish!

Very Professional

Capt. David was great. Sara, a supervisor with Tripshock, actually booked him for us when the other charter captain backed out. This was booked as a 3-hr trip to Crab Island, instead of bay fishing. However, Capt. Dave did offer both our boys the opportunity to fish. We all had a great time. Thanks, Sara and Dave.
