We spent 3 days fishing with Captain Brad and could not have asked for a better guide!! My father who is 83 and who has some physical limitations, was fishing with my daughter and I. Brad was fantastic with my Dad. He was very patient and helpful and gave us all an exceptional trip! We caught a ton of fish and laughed and enjoyed ourselves all day long. I would recommend Brad to anyone who wants a guide who is an expert and who wants to have a fantastic fishing trip!
