RESENT TESTIMONIAL 9/29/16
"Julie, please tell your captain we had the most delicious fish fry tonight! The guys had such a great time out on Kentucky Lake with Kirk today, and we were thrilled with the fish they caught in their time on his boat! And, we even have fish in the freezer to take home as well! Tomorrow we are all going out in the pontoon, and one of us girls sure hope to catch a crappie! -- Sue"
November is typically the best fall fishing for Crappie. I still have dates available in Nov! Give me a call at 877-354-6017.
IT'S TIME TO GO FISHING!
Captain Kirk, out
