Nov 25 update

STS guide Tom Pearce just called me from the water to say WOW, is fishing ever good. Tom’s out sturgeon fishing with a group from Alberta and they have already landed 13 fish with 4 or 5 over 5ft and 1 over 6ft. Looking like sturgeon fishing is still good and what a beautiful day it is today. If you are looking to get out next week, we are offering our off season rates for the rest of the year. " Fill the Boat for $500 for 4 anglers fishing 6 hours"

This picture was taken in October with one of our groups from Germany, gotta love the great weather

We just joined Trip Advisor as I am being told that it is very important for our business. For those of you that know me, I am a little behind in social media and these types of marketing tools. Although i think we do a pretty good job we can always do better. I have provided a link to our Trip Advisor Page and would welcome anyone who would take the time to post a report, good or bad we appreciate the time you take to do this.
