Captain Bryan knows Lake Calaveras. He has been guiding guests for 13 years. He was friendly and knowledgeable. He found the drum school and put us on them. We limited out and had a great time!!! We will be back soon!!!

Bryan can put you on the fish! Caught & released plus or minus 25 reds in about 3 hours, and at 2 points we had four fish on the lines at the same time. Freshwater reds are a bucket lister for anyone. -Attison with Captain Experiences

My boyfriend and I had so much fun out on the water with Capt. Bryan for our trip. We had booked the charter as a joint graduation present for the both of us and it was an experience to remember. Capt. Bryan was knowledgeable about the waters, the fish, and was very personable. We went home with our limit and would recommend Capt. Bryan to anyone for a great time!

Great attitude and fun trip. Got us a catch 30 minutes in. Good tech on the boat and plenty of room for 4 people. Would definitely use again.

Morning with Captain Bryan. Awesome, punctual, professional, kept the mood light. We caught a lot of fish. It had rained a lot , he was still able to make it a successful trip. All of us had a great time. My boys have a priceless experience to remember for years to come. Highly recommend Bryan!

Captain Bryan was fantastic, a true professional on the water. With his equipment and experience we caught nine Redfish, two of them keepers that we cooked up. My son has Aspergers, but this didn’t phase Bryan, who joked and had fun talking with him. The Bimini top kept us out of the heat, and we had the best father-son time of our lives!
