Young Captains think that all they need to do is catch a bunch of fish to make their customers happy. Experienced Captains know it’s much more than that. It’s about having a great time out on the lake with the people you’re choosing to spend time with. Doing this on a big, safe vessel, with all modern equipment and safety measures, adds to the ease and relaxation of the day. Knowing that you’re in the best hands possible, whether you’re new to fishing or an experienced hand, lends confidence to your day on the water. Smiles on your faces, enthusiasm about the fishing, laughing with The Captain, AND catching a bunch of fish, make for a great day on the water.
