Captain Trey Clement, was great!  My boys had an awesome “first experience” on a boat fishing trip.  Captain Trey made sure that they were taken care of and gave me the space to fish myself……  Thank you again Captain Trey Clement.

Michael M.

Trey did an excellent job at putting us on the fish when very few other boats were catching anything! ….. Enjoyed our catch for dinner at a local restaurant that evening, was delicious! If you are looking to have a good time and catch fish I would highly recommend Trey!
