An E-mail from Shelly Thomas and Kevin Grover

A true fishing testimonial from HAPPY BarHopp'R clients. Read about Shelly and Kevin'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. In his weekly Florida fishing reports he tells all about snook fishing, redfish fishing, tarpon fishing, and trout fishing.


Well since it is Monday night and I am just getting home to get your message I have to say that the wind didn't bother me at all. I had a great time and it was a much needed weekend for Kevin and first time flats fishing was a "grand" time after all.

Kevin and I have decided that we have a couple that we want to bring down to enjoy Sanibel and the entire flats fishing experience. She is a teacher and we feel she'll be a "hoot" to "learn" from someone like yourself. You and I will have to stay on Kevin because he tends to get real busy and forget about himself sometimes...looks like it will be late November before either of our schedules free up...I'll keep in touch and hopefully we can work it out.

I would live on Sanibel if I could - it was absolutely beautiful and we had decided if we won the lotto we wouldn't come home...well here I sit on Monday night...guess you figured it out - we didn't win...

Oh goes on...hope to see you soon!!!
