“Just wanting to send a thank-you to Tony for our recent outing on Sunday. Our visitor from Manzanillo had a wonderful time. He hasn’t stopped talking about it. It was a fabulous experience for my kids as well. Spectacular weather was also included…well done! Will be in touch, thanks again,”

“Fishing for sturgeon has been on my bucket list since I was 10 years old when I saw my first one in a fishing magazine, I was hooked I had to catch one. But there always seemed to be something in the way that held me back from going sturgeon fishing , like getting married, have children , buying houses and life in general. Finally on August 25/13 my son and I said this is going to happen one way or another. I did a lot of research before deciding on your organization to fish with and was not disappoint in the least.
I just wanted to say what a fantastic time my son and I had with your organization last summer . Years ago my brother and I ran our own guiding service for Black bears in Saskatchewan and know how much work it is when guiding for a living and making the customer feel comfortable and happy. Our guide had to be one of the best that I have ever worked with . Without his experience and knowledge I now know I would not have landed any sturgeon that trip. I would have been setting the hook way to soon and miss the fish every time. The other thing that really impressed me was his professionalism on how he treated the client and the respect he had for the sturgeon. Every fish we caught was released as soon as possible so there was the least amount of stress exerted on the fish. My son and I caught 8 sturgeon that trip , the smallest being 5 foot 4 and the largest 7 foot 2 . I have passed your guiding information on to anyone that would listen to me .
Thanks so much for the great time”

“Just wanted to say thank you for last week,My self and Liz really appreciated all you did for us.
Merv and Mike were really good to fish with and both put me on spots to catch really good fish and to have two personal bests in one day was out of this world.
The Pitt river trip will be really hard to beat as I have never fished anywhere that matched up to that experience.
P.S. there is a rumour in the lake house hold that we may be back next year!!” — Alan Lake
“Thanks Tony for an absolutely awesome day of fishing. My 6 year old grandson Emmett was the fisher of the day and had a fabulous and exciting time. Everyone caught fish including our Mexican Home Stay Students. It was a marvellous experience once again and we will continue our annual trips and can hardly wait again for our next trip out with you. Thanks for an awesome time Tony and see you soon.
— Pete Emmett
“Renee and I are sitting here having coffee and reminiscing about our trip to Canada. It was filled with excitement and adventure, and our time with you on the river is on the “Short List” of “Favorite’s”!!!
I’m hoping that we can bring our boys to the Lodge this summer – and when we do – I’ll make sure you are the “Professional Guide” of choice.
We (Zeke & Brad) were on this adventure because of our status of being a “Top Trainer” with our company, and how appropriate that we were with the “Top Guide”!!!
Thank you, for making our trip memorable. ”

“ I bought a guided sturgeon trip on Thursday with Merr for my boyfriends
birthday. I wanted to let this organization know what a great time we had!!
We’re a couple of albertans who have never gone sturgeon fishing before and
Merr’s expertise and knowledge was invaluable. Although we didn’t land a 10
foot dinosaur, the 5 footers were really exciting to catch. (I’m STILL sore
lol) We got a lot of action on our lines, took in the breathtaking scenery,
and had some good laughs with Merr. I would recommend you guys to anyone
interested in a guided fishing trip. I was also really impressed with the
amount of conservation work you do. So thank you for making Scott’s birthday
one to remember and please pass our sincere thanks on to Merr. Keep up the
