Amazing guide, we limited out within 1hr if being in the water. After that we caught for fun until the bait was empty. Thank you so much for making our family vacation a memory of a lifetime!

Captain Marty was great to spend the day with! For 2/3 of our group of 6 it was their first time with a guide. He was patient and didn't yell at anyone for missing a fish. Spending the day with him is a fun way to catch a lot of fish.

The weather started out pretty rough, w/ whitecaps and 20+ mph winds, but Captain Marty's partner, Captain Ron, took us out to the Oklahoma side away from the brown / rusty muddy runoff water and once we were anchored, he put us on the fish all day. Limited out on stripers w/ a 3-4 nice sized ones. My son and I had a ball and it was a very rewarding experience for a 10 year old to know he helped bring food to the table for the first time!read more
