It was great having you aboard and happy you had a great time. Do hope your friend from Wisconsin enjoys the salmon we sent home with him and look forward to hopefully seeing you again this summer. Lots of fishing yet to be done!!

Captain Frank's experience is sometimes no match for the fishing Gods. Today was seven shark and one halibut and I still had a great time. Safe and Attentive Captain. On other days we will catch more fish.More
