What a perfect day of fishing! Thanks Captain Gabe for your wisdom and experience! You gave my 14-year-old a most memorable Birthday gift. I’m convinced your knowledge, experience, and connections with other fishermen enabled us to land these despite the MONSTER that got away. Thanks again!

Captain Gabe and first mate Dave are awesome. Captain Gabe got us on the fish early and kept them coming all day. First Mate Dave was on top of the rods and lures like a hawk making sure not to miss anything. The fishing was awesome. Hanging out on the boat was a great time non stop laughing the whole time. It felt like we had known Captain Gabe and First Mate Dave for years. If you are looking for a fun day on the water where it feels more like fishing with old friends than a business transaction look no further than Reel to Real.
