We had a fantastic time with Captain Ben. He immediately placed us in a fantastic scalloping bed. We had some bad weather, so he got us out of there and back to scalloping as soon as possible. We had a four-hour trip limit. Captain Ben comes highly recommended by us.

We didn't catch many fish, but we had a great time. The captain was entertaining.

July 23, 2024

Captain Ben took us on a half-day trip in the morning. We caught 7 keepers, which were a mix of sea trout and whiting. Daughter caught a large fish that broke the line. We got a lot of bites and caught at least 20 smaller fish that were too small to eat. The best part was that there was never a dull moment!
