Even though we only caught one fish it was a beautiful trip to be on. You get to catch beautiful looking fish and see all the mountains around you with snow on them

Great morning fishing with Simon. Hooked a few and then tasted some on the boat! Scenery was amazing, seeing things you can only see from the water. Comfortably equipped for 6 fishing and having fun.
