Hi Billy,
Thanks for the great trip! I have been a fisherman on many different boats and many different seas! I found your boat and first mate to top notch. It was exciting that you allowed the whole ship to get into the rigging of baits and gear. Being a part of the whole process of rigging, baiting, setting lines is all an integral part of fishing. Truthfully, the experience on your boat made me feel like more of a fisherman than other trips where you feel like the guy who paid the cash to reel in "the big one".
Your mate Billy is top notch too. I knew that our trip was going to be great when Billy arrived at the boat and was "gung ho" at 5 AM. The only time I saw Billy slow down was on the ride back home after the day was done. Keeping the baits in the water enabled our charter to catch more fish!
Additionally, your captain skills led us to the fish. I anticipated that you knew where the fish were when we left the dock and all of the other boats followed us. There were no boats ahead of us when we left. Later in the day when fishing slowed down, you were not afraid to try new spots to catch more and bigger fish. Truthfully, I think this attitude is what good fisherman strive for AND is how we got on the front page of the fishing report in the following link: http://www.oregon-inlet.com/journal/article.cfm?article_id=2556
I hope to fish with you again in the near future!
