Testimonials 2008 - 2009







Thanks so much for the wonderful day!  It was a real thrill to catch an 8.75 lb fresh water drum!  It was great to watch our boys reel in those beautiful bass and a second fresh water drum.   The time flew by in a hurry.  It was very enjoyable--I loved it!  I would recommend your charter service to anyone.  Thank you very much,

Thanks so much for a great day on the river. You are really good with the kids and worked very hard to make them have a great,  fun and successful day. I would say with (2) three and 1/2 pounders and (2) four pounders and several other bass they will not forget  the trip  for some time to come. Thanks again for all your effort and humor . The kids and I had a blast. It really was an enjoyable trip. I would recommend it to anyone.


Cindy Clary Massena, NY 




Thank-you so much.  My son age 9, nephew age 18 and myself all had a great and productive time.  Bass, walleye, there is nothing I would have added to the experience to make it more enjoyable.  We caught lots of fish, had great company, and tons of laughs. You were extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. Captain Reyes you are doing everything right.

Hi Ed & Scott,

Thank you for a terrific day of fishing. This was our first time doing this and we had a great time and learned a lot. You were wonderful guides and made us feel like we were long-time fishin' buddies. We never expected to catch so many fish. Next time we are in Massena, we will be calling Ed again. We would definitely recommend this fishing charter to anyone who loves to fish.  this was a truly awesome experience, we caught almost 20 bass and other smaller fish along with hooking a Muskie. if your going to be around Massena NY. and you plan to go fishin', go to captain Ed he'll show you a great time and you will learn a lot about fishin' the St. Lawrence thanks Ed and Scott.

Hi Ed,  

The men had a great time! My Dad has your name and will recommend you to anyone he knows who might like to go fishing on the St. Lawrence. Chris enjoyed the trip the most - he is the avid fisherman of the group - but I'd have to say Andrew was a close second. Thanks for making it a great trip. I would recommend you bring water bottles with you though. Take care.

We were in Massena for a family reunion and booked a trip with Ed.  Although the weather didn't cooperate, we had a great time.  The smallmouth were a blast, and the walleye and northern kicker fish added to the excitement.  Ed knows the St. Lawrence extremely well and was very hospitable.  He had sub sandwiches ready for lunch and was always willing to go the extra mile with advice.  I would recommend Ed to anyone considering a guided trip while in the area.


Jeff Donovan Belton, MO




Thanks for a great day of fishing. The weather cooperated as well as most of the fish. We all three had a great time with you and Scott. You were very accommodating for my dad to make sure he was comfortable and enjoying himself.  Nick was impressed with your knowledge and patience. The picture of Nick and myself with the bass he caught is now our screen saver.  I will and have already recommended you to friends and coworkers. Being able to spend time with my dad and my son fishing on the St. Lawrence was priceless. I will be planning for another trip next year. 

Thanks again,

I wish to thank you for the wonderful trip that you gave my husband Lowell Potter, his son Jim Potter and his grandson, Nick Potter on Sunday, June 14th..  They all had a wonderful time and all spoke how knowledgeable and considerate you both were.  What great pictures you have of their adventure on your website.  They’re planning another trip next year.  Thanks again for making this fishing trip so special for my beloved husband, Lowell.   


Janet Potter Bombay, NY



Hi Ed and Scott, I Just wanted to thank you for making our visit to the St Lawrence area exciting and memorable. The morning we were scheduled to go fishing with you, my truck broke down. You guys not only gave us a lift to the fishing site, but you found a mechanic and a tow truck for us. Both my children Luke 13, and Katy 8 loved the day fishing. They caught fish and got to drive the boat. When we finished for the day I could see the genuine joy in their faces. The kids had a GREAT time. The attention and patience Scott showed with Katy was incredible. What a great experience. The kids were ecstatic. All they talked about was Ed and Scott and how nice you guys were. Thanks so much for your warmth and kindness to both myself and my children.


Marty Craig Wappingers Falls, New York.



Thanks so much for a great day of fishing.  I never knew what I was missing.  Brendan and Chris had a super time and still talk about their fishing expedition.  Brendan had a great birthday party and will be one he remembers fondly for years to come.  Please pass our thanks on to Scott as well.  You guys were great!


Thanks again. Patrick Broderick Massena, NY



Always enjoy the friendship, service, and expertise.  Imagine this - Throwing massive NEW baits out into predator infested waters and not having to worry about replacement!


John Basham Canton, New York.




I just want to thank you .  I believe that without your help we wouldn't have gotten that fish (a 48" Muskie) in the boat.  You did a great job talking me through bringing the fish in.   We will certainly be scheduling another charter before the summer is out.  Thanks again,


Penny Francis Brasher, New York.



Ed, I want to thank you for a great day.  I am new to this and I learned a lot.  You made us all feel comfortable and you were especially patient with me.  Thank you again!
