I am coming to the Fort Meyers area for years now, and yes i catched a lot of Catfish, Stingrays, a little shark from time to time .......but with Butchie ...damned, i have dreamed a lot about amazing fishing days, but now my dreams come true.

First of all, what a great boat to ride on and to fish with, the way of catching bait, the trouts, the ladyfish, the big redfish, etc., and all that with the bad weather conditions, hurricane Isidoor in front of the coast. My mate could not fish at all and that was a little difficult for the Capt. in the beginning, but even Joseph hookt maybe 30 trouts!! The Capt. is in fact the dream man for every woman, like he is maintaning and cleaning his boat and proud. My wife would love him!! One remark i have to make. I told him at least 10 times that we came from Belgium, you know that little country between France - Germany and the Netherlands, but in his report he wrote that we came from Austria. Thats about 750 miles from Brussels, but men can not be good in everything .......

Hope to see you next year back Butchie and thanks for "one" of the great fishing days in my life .

Krgds, from Belgium,
