Comments: Captain Sam, we had an awesome time this weekend. You do the jobs of an entire crew the way you multi-task and keep the fish coming. Pops, Craig, John, and I were amazed at how you made a bunch of rookies like us look (almost) good. Thanks again, we’ll see you next year…

Comments: Hi Captain Sam, I wanted to thankyou for making our two day charter trip with you the “trip of a life time.” We had an incredible time! Your professionalism and enthusiasm for fishing made the trip both fun and productive. The coolers were full when we left and we can’t until next year. If you get a chance please send me the pics you took. We are having a big graduation party on Saturday, and my Dad would love to show them off. Thanks for everything. Joe

Comments: Sam, Just wanted to say thank you for making our two day trip a very memorable one! With three of our group of four coming all the way from Orlando you did an outstanding job for us. Almost 300 ponds of Salmon in a single trip was amazing. Five trips out now and you have yet to let us down! Thanks again! The pictures are included.
