Listen to what others have to say…

“Thank you to all the crew at Crusoe Fishing for making my day so great started by catching my 14th marlin on my 14th trip. Don’t know any other Captain with those odds it’s going to be hard to keep it up Charles but we will just have to try. Than I get to marry my beautiful wife in the afternoon at Erakor Island. What a day, it was all done to perfection.”
