Cory is super easy to talk to, very easy to get along with, and always has a joke or two to keep you laughing. He never gives up and always keeps pushing to put you on the fish no matter what the conditions are.
His motto is "The problem is not always the problem, sometimes the problem is your attitude towards the problem". Capt. Cory especially loves working with people who are new to fishing as well as taking kids fishing.
