    Enjoy Fishing In Cape Coral, Florida On 24' Sportman Masters Center Console

    Four of us spent the day with Chris fishing and later touring and stopping for dinner on the water. He was very knowledgeable of where and what to fish for. We were all having so much fun that we extended our trip a few extra hours. Just an all around great day. Highly recommend!
