Not to be missed, do your best to land a trip with Richard. We expected a good fishing experience, did not know that it would be so much fun! The meal on board was nothing less than magnificent.

Went out 22 Feb 2015. 2 fish each with the last for last person hooked 10 mins before return. This was nice 2 KG fish. This guy is the fish whisperer. Just consumed 3 of 6 said fish. Stunning. Highly recommended.
