I just wanted to thank you for a great day of fishing. I have fished the Bay Pines / Johns Pass area for five years in my own boat and thought I knew the area well but no one knows it better than you! The new techniques that you showed me were highly effective in catching fish. Eight big Reds in the first hour and a half was amazing! To say that you are a ” good ” fishing guide would be an understatement. I look forward to fishing with you again.

Thanks again for a great day on the water last Wednesday. You really showed us a good time – not only with plenty of fish but also some sight seeing, dolphins, the Babe’s house etc. We really enjoyed the day, and ended it perfectly with a delicious trout feast at the Friendly Fisherman.
