Here is a recent FB post I did on Shells & Tails Outdoor Adventures! ~ Back-to-back trips to the beach! This is a rarity for the Jones Family. This time, it was Topsail Beachside with our daughter Chasity Jones & Captain Adrain Doby and family for some off-shore fishing. Folks, if you want an outdoor adventure, charter with this guy! We got all this catch in such a short amount of time! (Some are just for pics, due to size or season, some had to go back 💟). Then, since we are family, he cooked it all up with some steak & sides for some surf & turf! Adrain truly has a gift & technique for his craft, you won't be disappointed! Thank you Chasity for planning such a wonderful time, we love you guys very much! 💙 https://m.facebook.com/103082028534388 Also, I have a rare medical condition called Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome. This means I have to avoid all products with fragrances & strong chemicals to avoid having a reaction. Adrain & his crew worked diligently to ensure I would have safe travel. Thanks, guys! He really knows what he is doing & takes pride in his work & it shows! We will definitely contact him again for our next outdoor coastal adventure!

Cpt Adrian did a great job, trying to protect us from fish and keeping us from our scheduled time. We had a great time and look forward to our next expedition with him.

The weather was rough and super windy, but the captain put us on the fish and within 5 minutes of queuing we were biting our fists! The captain is a very nice guy and he had a great time on the water. He will definitely book a charter with this guy.

This was a great experience. Captain Adrian was very enthusiastic about this voyage. He fished out a Red Drum and was able to reach his limit. I recommend Captain Adrian.
