“I think we’ve been visiting for at least 15 years before they were even in this location. Good location, with a nearby spot under the bridge with good fish. But for us the guided trips have been the best. I honestly think our captain was more excited to catch the fish than we were. Very prepared and never a bad day on the water. The store itself has everything we’ve needed plus good advice on where to go. The restaurant there is also a nice bonus.”
