"My wife and I along with 4 work mates had an opportunity to fish with Captain Bo and Mate John recently. I can honestly say that we had an excellent trip. The boat was the cleanest I've ever been on. This trip was without a doubt the most organized and efficient fishing charter experience I've ever had!! Captain Bo doesn't miss a beat and the Mate John was professional, courteous and helpful from start to finish. They even filleted the fish for us. I can't say enough about this experience. If anyone wants to spend a quality day on the Bay while catching Fish with a great Captain and Mate, this is the ONLY Boat to Consider, PERIOD!! " Captain Bob Warfield

"Just wanted to take a moment and follow up with you to let you know that we had a really nice time out on your boat on Thursday. The conditions were favorable but even so the whole day was a great experience. I always appreciate a well run business and wanted to recognize you for the quality product you produce over and above your competition at a reasonable price. Just a few observations. Great job recruiting a first rate first mate. Very personable guy! The investment you made in your equipment and electronics is evident. I do hope those investments are paying off for you. Nice job on marketing your business. Good job on the website and branding. The photograph at the end is a brilliant idea. Anglers want to memorialize their day and show off their catch. I know I sent that picture to at least seven or eight people already. Thanks again captain. Fish on!!"

Most of all, I want to thank you for donating such a nice prize to the ICS parish school raffle.

I told him we found a guy that was awesome too - right over the bay bridge--the stories went back and forth and we eventually figured out we were both talking about YOU! Word of mouth advertising is a powerful thing. You’re doing all the right stuff, and word is getting out. Keep up the good work!"
