What an amazing fishing trip Friday! We wanted different and they worked like hell to deliver! Captain Richie, Sean & Mikey were phenomenal with Reel Legend Charter Fishing. Even with Gregs physical limitations, wearing down so easily from 52 rounds of chemo and counting and needing to be out of the sun for the most part, they ALL helped us get these wahoo on deck for this once in a lifetime trip!
