What a great day, and we even had time to stop for a fish 🐟 . Kurtz was great, and although the weather was not 100, everyone had a great day. Will definitely go back again.

this was our third time out with Nick and all three trips vary between very good and excellent. Not only the fishing but also listening to Nick's stories is an experience. Can't wait for the next outing!
