Capt. John, Just wanted to say that we had a great time. We enjoyed your putting us on some fish and making sure that all of us had a chance to catch some Snook. Enjoyed the conversation and laughs too. You can tell anyone needing a reference, that we would highly recommend you! Bob, David and James
