In bay private fishing

about 6 months ago
We had Captain Dave and he was great! Just me and 3 kiddos and he had great patience, down to earth personality that we all really enjoyed. He made sure we all caught fish and taught my kiddos it is pretty different from midwest fishing lol. We had a great time and brought back 3 good sized fish for dinner. Highly Recommend!
