Hi Mark, We just wanted to thank you and Prime Time crew (Brandon, Blair and Bobby) for a great time. We look forward to making this an annual event or more frequent. I have attached some photos. You will see by the smiles on everyone faces that we had a great time. Your crew took great care with my 14 year old son, Kevin, as he spent about 1.5 hours reeling in a 50 lbs. Blue Fin tuna. Thank you Prime Time Crew!

Thanks,

Ken, Kyle and Uncle Louie
