Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
Casey was an awesome guide!
Rodney A. with Casey R. of South Boardman, Michigan
My daughter and I had a great time fishing with Butch. She had never caught a smallmouth before. Not only did she catch more than me she caught the biggest (4.40 lbs). Weather wasn't ideal with slick water and overcast most of the time but he still managed to put on some good fish. Our best 5 went a little over 16.5lbs. Was a good trip and I would recommend Butch as he has a lot of guide/tournament experience in the area. We went in the West Bay out of Traverse City.
Terry K. with Butch D. of Traverse City, Michigan
Mate Jeremy and Captain Issac were an awesome team. My son, grandson and I caught 9 fish....7 kings and 2 rainbows. Biggest king was 41.5 inches long. Great trip!!
Skip T. with Dan S. of Whitehall, Michigan
It was a great trip Captain Jim really knew what he was doing. We limited out in about 3 hours.
Michael L. with Jim C. of Elk Rapids, Michigan
Zach was very personable and a very good guide. I fought several large salmon. We only got one in the boat but we had dozens of opportunities. I am going again.
