Please do, I am very passionate about what I do, and I truly enjoy sharing what I know about the species we chase and the marsh we chase them in. Ask all the questions you want, and I will do my best to answer them.

If it is not a severe downpour with lightning, the captain may fish (some of our best catches come in inclement weather). However, if I see that the weather is dangerous (lightning, strong winds) or we are not able to fish, we will gladly reschedule or refund your deposit. The guide will make the call…
