Captain Chuck was a class act that resulted in boating multiple fish of my lifetime. Captain Chuck worked very hard to put TWO, fifty five pound blue cats in my hands. Chuck worked hard, was very polite, and made sure we had the trip of a lifetime. He maintained excellent equipment and paid attention to the details. If anyone is looking for the blue cat hotspot of the United States, you want the best guide in that area. Chuck is that person!
