Thank you for the great review of my charter company and Capt. Bryson. Often times I refer to him as the "super guide" able to do just about anything and show people a great time on the water while doing it.

Steve Lamp & John Reed are both excellent. 2 Great trips. Hooked me up with mounting of a 27 lb permit caught on one of the trips. Both very informative of not only finding fish but the area in general.

New, clean, well-appointed fishing boat with all the necessary gear and bait. Very pleasant and knowledgeable captain. All-in-all a first rate experience. Well worth the trip to Stock Island.
