- Captain Robert,
Thanks again for the great fishing trip you took us on July 6th on our vacation. The morning was so beautiful and we had so much fun catching the red drums and other fishes. Last weekend we had some friends and family over and we cooked all the fish. Needless to say it was a huge success, now everybody wants to come to fish in NC after seeing our photos and eating the tasty meal.
Hope we see you again soon, take care and our regards to Charlie as well!
