​Bryan Lee

I've been on a number of charters over the years and Captain Gregg is a keeper. He definitely knows what he's doing but above all he is a just a great
guy. My new daughter-in-law was with us on her first fishing trip ever and Gregg took the time to show her the ropes in a patient manner. She had a blast. Thanks again Gregg, we'll be back!
