Water was still at caution levels yesterday, but otherwise in great shape! Found some fish to play with and had a great time hanging with friends... Tuesday and Wednesday booked for me while we were out there, but I still have tomorrow open. (Around 45 degrees and sunny! ;^)

Water was in great shape having dropped an additional 5” since my 2:30pm check on Friday and should beeven better today!

What a beautiful day is all I can say! Both Steve and John had already lost hot Steelhead at this point however…

Fortunately, I got my shot in a little better area for a fight!

Wrong angle to the sun, but she was bright, tight and full of spite…

Standard/traditional day off lunch of venison brats of course! ;^)

My personal available days thru the 15th of April as of this moment are now February 26, (Tomorrow) March 4, 5, 6 & 11 (These are great dates!) and April 10 & 15. We do have other guides available many other days as well as motel rooms. Give the shop a call 9am to 5pm Wednesday thru Monday (Closed Tuesday) to check availability and book your trip! 231-745-3529

We are fired up for what looks to be shaping up as a great spring! Till next time, tight lines…

This is a fantastic and affordable trip to just relax in the sun or enjoy some spectacular salt water fishing! While most of our (BBT’s) destination travel trips are hardcore fishing this one, in contrast, is most certainly one that a non-fishing companion would enjoy just as much! San Pedro is an awesome little laid back island with English speaking residents, Caribbean cuisine, great shopping and night life! Give us a call to reserve your place with us this winter… 1-231-745-3529
