Captain Gary was awesome. He did a great job with my kids (girls ages 5 &11). They enjoyed the 3 hour trip and we caught at least 10 fish each. We will definitely book next year! Thanks Captain Gary!!

Gary did a great job, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and easy going. It was very easy to book the trip. He is conveniently located near the center of bolton 5 minutes from the sagamore, Bobs ice cream and palazzos pizza. Highly recommend.
