Subject: How impressed my father/I was with you....

Capt. Butch--

I know we had an AWFUL day to try and see if we could find bait, let alone fish. I also realize we left the dock, so our short trip could have been considered a half day out on the water. However, I know my dad and I were completely impressed with your demeanor and attitude toward the whole mess of a day.

With the wind at 30/40 mph on the water, and the way The Barhoppr was getting bounced around, I thought it was best to head back to the ramp--obviously. Believe me when I say I was more than bummed about having to turn around and cut the trip off.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I have nothing but the highest regard for you and the way you handled the situation. I know my father has suggested your services to various friends he has in the SW Florida area, and I will be sure to let you know when we will be there in the future. I figure if I give you enough advance warning, you can suggest the best day concerning the tides. If only you could control the weather... Basically, we will DEFINITELY be booking a trip with you in the future--if you'll have us!

In any case, your fishing reports are like salt in my wounds, since we couldn't get out there fishing. I guess it's back to catching walleyes in Minnesota--oh well.

Take care,

Rob Winnick
