We had the pleasure of experiencing one of the most fun filled action packed days of our lives fishing with Grif.  

Grif worked hard to find us fish and he made us feel like family, it was a memorable day.  

Did I mention I also caught my first trophy barracuda.  Would highly recommend spending a day on the water with Grif.
