An E-mail from Jodi Fisher

A true fishing testimonial from a HAPPY BarHopp'R client. Read about Jodi and Terri Fisher, and Bill Keister's experience with Capt. Butch Rickey, one of the top native Florida fishing guides, backcountry fishing and flats fishing in the waters of Pine Island Sound around Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, and Pine Island.


Our fishing trips were everything we thought they would be and more. You're a fantastic guide and captain. You found bait when others couldn't and found fish on a day when no one else was catching anything. We thouroughly enjoyed flats fishing for our first time and would highly recommend it and you to anyone.

You are definately an instructional guide and we appreciate the constructive criticism--afterall, it definately put fish in the boat. I'm not sure how Bill took the criticism, but he has a big fishing ego. As much as he pouted, he still hasn't quit talking about the trip or you. It's been a week now, so that should say something. I guarantee he'll remember what you told him and use the knowledge for years to come, as will I.

My wife still hasn't gotten over catching that 5' x 8' sting ray. Wow-what a fight. She is ready to do it again on a warmer day. Thanks again for two great days on the water, we will definately do it again.

Jody and Terri Fisher

p.s. Bills last name is Keister (kind of fits his attitude doesn't it?)
