Our Captain was professional and an excellent guide. He took care of taking our fish for processing and shipping; it arrived on our doorstep exactly when we requested. Whenever we have it for dinner we reflect on our trip. Our family had a wonderful time!

Loved Josh (captain), getting to pray together, fish together, have holy conversations, beautiful weather and catch so many Hali's we had to decide which to keep and which to release! Love the new boat too!!

Cold, windy, raining day, fishing poor, but would certainly go with the same captain. A nice fellow and Heidi bakes excellent cookies which both my daughter and I enjoyed.
