March 7 We took your advice and moved our trip to the day you said would be better fishing - and, and your recommendation paid off. Thanks. Robbie

March 8 So we went to some of your places and there just a small number of fish. You made some changes to our locations and it resulted in some really good fish being caught in shallow water. It was a great experience! Weston

March 26 The weather for the day we wanted to go fishing was bad so we took your advice and it resulted in some good fish and a lot of fish. Thanks Captain Tom.

March 27 We struggled for the first two to three hours of the trip - it was tough finding fish. Captain Tom, you really came through for us - you found a good school of Stripers and we caught a bunch. Thank You.

Ray Gregario. We really enjoyed it! Thanks again for putting us on fish. We will definitely hook-up with you again.

Tommy Holland. Wrote a Google Five Star Review! We got on an active school of fish at our quitting time and Tom let us keep catching well past the four hour time frame and he did not charge us extra. He had two different types of live bait in case one was better than the other. Highly recommend Captain Tom!

Jack Avery. My son and I fished with Captain Tom - it was cold and blustery; but we caught a bundh of fish - some small and some were large. Thoroughly enjoyed fishing with this professional!

Bill Barrett. Wrote a Google Five Star Review! I gave tom a call and he worked us into his schedule. The day we selected was to be a bad weather day and he let us change at the last minute for a better day. We caught over 15 Stripers with 3 being big girls. We also got into a school of Spotted Bass and my son caught the biggest Spot in his life. I highly recommend Tom. His knowledge of the Lake and the Stripers is unmatched. If you want to catch Stripers, Tom's the man.

Jay, Jim, and Rick. Great photos and had a fabulous time! Thanks for everything Tom. We had a blast! Learned a lot. Your excitement about us catching fish was the icing on the cake. Thanks!

Steve. Happy times fishing on the Lake on the final day of 2019! We boated nine Stripers in about three and one half hours; four of them were large.
