I just wanted to take a few minutes to express my thanks to both Capt. Joe and 1st Mate Kevin for the wonderful fishing trip provided for my son and me.. It is truly one of those experiences we will both remember forever. Landing our limits of big King salmon on both days of fishing is one thing, but having the time of our life doing it is what made it so special. We both thank Capt. Joe and Kevin for their patience and help in all of the techniques involved in successfully landing fish. Without Capt. Joe's knowledge and Kevin’s expertise in handling the back of the boat we would have been lost. I have fished for many years in many different places, but don’t think I have ever had the fun and excitement I had on your boat. And, sharing that with my son makes it unbelievably special.

Just returned after two beautiful days on Lake Ontario with Captain Joe and Kevin, and could not be happier with our crew and the entire experience. Most of us were rookie salmon fishermen, and even with 6 of us on board, Joe and Kevin really went above and beyond to make sure everyone had a great time and landed at least one or two salmons. I really liked the safety briefing and the discipline on board, but mostly how passionate they are about fishing and ensuring that everyone enjoyed themselves. They also kept us entertained the entire time while waiting for the fish to bite. Thank you gentlemen, keep up the good work; hoping to be back next year!

Capt. Joe I can't thank you enough for another GREAT time fishing with you! Just watching my son, my father , and my father in-law catching their first king salmon was worth the trip. You have helped make memories that we will never forget. I want to thank Kevin to. without his help and knowledge of the water and fish we would not have had the success that we had! I can't wait to book our trip for next year! Happy Fishing , and Semper Fi.
