“Our boat captains are the BEST! They were so patient and attentive to my son and helped feed his imagination when he decided he had caught a “3 horned long neck”. When we were going back across the lake for lunch, I could hear him singing/humming the Jurassic Park theme song. He does that when he is happy! Thank you to everyone for this special event!” Parent of Participant, Lake Waco
“It changed the entire way I think about taking people out fishing it now holds a large place in my heart and has inspired me to reach out to other similar organizations as well as some other cast for kids events that I’m now registered for. Easily one of the best days I’ve ever had on the water.” Volunteer Boater, Lake Waco
