Capt. Butch:

Having been a licensed Coast Guard Captain and Guide for 15 years, I know what to expect from a Guide and a professional fishing trip. You exceeded those expectations on our trip last Thursday. You took me, Bobby Mullis, my wife, Carol Mullis both from DE and my retired policeman friend Gary Radermaker of Cape Coral, FL fishing. I was very happy that you could accommodate 3 people since my wife loves to fish, too. You came highly recommended from an offshore charter captain that Gary knows. I was impressed with your web site and all the information that it provided. We were also impressed that you stayed tuned into the weather and called off our trip at 5:45 AM on the first morning scheduled, due to dangerous weather. We rescheduled for Thursday, and we think we were better off weather wise. We had more sun, and it may have cost us some bites, but we didn't get wet. All 3 of us truly enjoyed the entire trip.

You are good teacher, and I would say that we quickly became friends. WE caught lady fish and some trout. Having been a Large mouth and small mouth Bass guide, I know that the Guide can't do a thing about the bites and the weather. Your 16' Talon served was a great vessel for the 4 of us to fish. We all 4 were able to stand on the front deck and cast. Your fishing gear for the clients is the best that I have ever used on a guide boat. I was really impressed with your Power Pole anchor system, and I have already started checking on one for my saltwater boat. The other nice part of the trip was the fact that you took us to eat lunch at the Waterfront Restaurant. We had Gary's wife meet us there by car, and the 5 of us enjoyed lunch. The cost of the trip was $450, plus a Tip and the lunch. A very reasonable cost for a good time by 4 people.

We met a new friend, Capt. Butch, and had a great time. Now, I have a reason to go back to Florida. I am associated with Ken Penrod's Life Outdoors Unlimited Fishing Guide Service. I know what a good guide service is, and yours is top notch.

Thanks Bobby, Carol and Gary
