Capt. Butch,

Just a quick note to say thanks for a great day of fishing last Tues. Thanks for sending my dad the pics, he forwarded them last night, they look great and are a great remembrance of a fantastic day of bending the rods.

I'll sit down and write a trip report soon, maybe you'll put it in your testimonial section. Anyway, below is a response I wrote to a post on the Salt Water Sportsman website, thought you'd like to see it.

The whole redfish on the grill were delicious. We seasoned them (inside and in the cavity) with salt, pepper, oregano, fresh lemon and olive oil. Grilled for about 20 minutes and enjoyed.

This is probably too late, but I just saw the message. I can't recommend Captain Butch Rickey highly enough. Went out with him and 3 of my family members last Tuesday (8/8). With a warning to expect the summer doldrums, we were able to boat about 15 redfish, 2 snook and a trout before the tide changed. We released all but 4 of the redfish. This was our first time flats fishing, and it was a blast...ultralight tackle and a good ol' southern boy for a captain. Check out his website at
