Phenomenal Captain - Even better person!

Tim Macknair
Shout out to Captain Tim Macknair for his unbelievable generosity to bring his boat the whole way from AL to PA so that he could volunteer for the Paralized Veterans Bass Tournament! My cousin Mark was the fortunate one to be paired with him. Tim not only exhibited an amazing amount of patience and understanding to assist Mark fishing, he had a wealth of knowledge and skill to help Mark have the best fishing trip of his life! Hats off to you Captain Tim you are not only a skilled fisherman and guide, you are an amazing man!

Favorite boat captain

Tim Macknair
Captain Tim give me the best fishing experience so far in a bass tournament for Paralyzed Veterans of America Keystone chapter.. All our veterans had a fantastic time. Captain Tim got us to the finish in record time with a good catch add the last minutes. The river that day what is bad for a lot of the anglers and boat captains so it was a rough tournament, but I caught the most fish that day even though we had to throw back the small ones. I hope to see Captain Tim turn the future he is a wonderful Guide to go fishing with. Thank you for a great time. Sincerely Mark Rosensteel
