I’ve Been Bringing My Family To Your Boat For Years.
Dear Captain Joe:
Today, two friends and I had the pleasure of fishing on the JIB VI. We had not been fishing out of Captree in many years. The JIB VI was clean and the crew amazing.
Special thanks go out to Joe who was extremely helpful, courteous and personable. He added to our enjoyment of this fishing trip.
Even though we only caught "throw backs", we had a great time and look forward to fishing on the JIB VI again.
Thanks for making our family trip most memorable. Please extend our thanks to your crew for all their help and patience.
Dear Capt. Joe,
My father Walter and I had a great day of fishing on the JIB VI Wednesday (9/5). Attached are two pictures of my father's 7.77 lb Fluke (Thanks to Jon Rothfeld for taking the pictures and for sending them to my father so quickly). Jon just let us know that it was also the dock pool winner!
It would be great if you added them to your website.
We look forward to another trip soon!
To Captain Joe and Mates Shawn and Spud:
On Wednesday, August 8, 2007, my daughter and I went fishing on your boat. I want to thank Shawn and Spud for their gracious hospitality. It was my daughter's first time on a boat and her first time fishing. She even caught a nice weakfish. We really had a great time. I look forward to going out with you guys again. Thanks a lot.
Yours in Fishing,
Megan and Michael
