I wanted to thank you for the great trip you gave myself and my father-in-law, Len, 2 weeks ago. We both learned a lot from you and enjoyed our time. I know that Len would not have caught the musky he did without your experience guiding us. Thanks again and we look forward to fishing with you again next year.
"Great boat + good gear + super location + knowledgeable guide = fishing trip of a life time. This is what my son and I received over Memorial Day. As native Pennsylvanians, and as serious fisherman, we appreciate fishing done right. We have already booked our trip for next year and plan on making it an annual event."
