We had yet another splendid fishing trip with Captain Jim despite the fishing being slow. Jim did his best to find us a productive fishing spot. We have fished multiple times with Captain Jim. He is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

Our guides run center console, open fishermen boats that range in size from 23' to 25' and there is no restroom on board the boat. However, there is a restroom at the marina available before and after your trip.
