  • Incredible Captain and Experience

    Created Dustin Peeler

    I've been fishing in the Gulf for 40 years, starting way back when my dad used to take me, from Panama City to Fort Morgan and I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences ever. Capt. Craig is beyond knowledgeable and super friendly. I took my son (who has fished with me several times) as well as my wife and daughter (who were newbies). Capt. Craig related to us each on our individual levels and we all caught fish. He was super efficient with our time and made the trip a home run. Can't say enough good things so I'll leave it at this...I do believe I've found my permanent captain for all future trips to the Gulf. Thanks again for everything and making fishermen out of the rest of my family as well!
