What Our Clients Are Saying
"Had a fishing charter the first week in June. The trip was fantastic! Capt Ben was extremely accommodating, and allowed us to customize the trip, target the fish we wanted. Showed us lots of tips and techniques for up here in the north country, which was probably worth the trip alone! Excellent trip! - Nick Brandenburg, Ft Drum NY
