An E-mail from Rich and Liz Lewis

A true fishing testimonial from HAPPY BarHopp'R clients. Read about their 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. In his weekly Florida fishing reports he tells all about snook fishing, redfish fishing, tarpon fishing, and trout fishing. The fishing testimonials are FREE! A guided fishing trip is a bargain!

Sounds like the snook were hungry. I am trying to recall if you promised me a free trip or 1/2 price next time for me since I was skunked - gunna hold you too it. I have been going over in my head all your coaching tips and I think I can do it now - land the big one.

I loved your enthusiasm and expertise, but I think you might have scared the girls a bit, coach. We were cracking up the rest of our week remembering all our goof ups on the boat, and coach Butch letting us know all about it (KEEP THE ROD DOWN! OR YOU ARE GOING TO LOOSE THE FISH....).

I just think if we could have had better luck with bait and could have started fishing a little earlier we could have missed (haha) a lot more fish. We did get a nice cruise from Charlotte Harbor to Sanibel though. I had a blast and want to try it again. As soon as we can swing it, we'll be back.

P.S. It was Brenda that fought that big-old jack. Pretty awesome fish! P.S.S. Glad you appreciated the good looking fishing persons me and Matt brought with us - I've always liked brunettes.....and they can catch some fish!

Keep the reports coming, and thanks for giving my friends/wife the fishing experience of their life (Matt's first snook and first red, and they were the biggest fish he had ever caught).
