Half day trip with Captain Cody was excellent. Early in the morning Cody was able to travel faster because the waves were a little smaller. As the day progressed and the waves get bigger he traveled a little slower. Cody put us on fish right away. He hustled to keep bait on our hooks and to remove our fish. Cody is knowledgeable and friendly; willing to share his knowledge and experience. He was quick to clean our fish when we returned. Thank you Cody for excellent time on the water.
