Thanks again for the Great fishing trip on Monday and Tuesday (with Laurie Wilson) The 100 pound halibut was something to remember. I would appreciate if you could forward any of the pictures that you took.

See you again sometime.

Matt,

I was showing my son your web page and I saw the pictures of Wim and me. I also saw some pictrues of some other big rockfish. Looks like you are teaching your clients about the Liv’in Eye! You have fired me up for a trip next year to BC!

From Pat W.

Hi Matt (and Kirk),

I finally got caught up with all my email and crap at work and got around to sending you a note. Just wanted to thank you and have you pass on a very big thank you to Kirk. He was an excellent guide. All of us had an incredible experience and are looking forward to booking with you next August. Frank turned 80 this year (August 6) and catching a 35 lb Chinook (the biggest one!) made the trip for him. I will contact you in April 2005, or earlier, once I confirm dates with my father in law and the rest of the crew.

Have fun.

Pat W.

From Bob

Thank-you for a wonderful time I just had by best friend over for salmon dinner and we had some smoked salmon as well. Unbelievable. Anyway, he expressed interest in the two of us doing the fishing trip.

Please advise on your earliest time that would be convenient.

This guy has never caught a fish and you have to promise me you will not yell at him. We would only come to have fun and netting fish would be a bonus

Matt,

I lit the wood stove today for the first time this fall. I guess this must be the end of summer. It is probably a good thing that I just finished stacking under cover, 6 cords of Doug Fir and Hemlock.

Thank you again for the wonderful day on the water the other day and all of the fish, prawns and crab. I am planning on coming back next summer for a couple of days minimum. As you suggested, we may try to sneak over early in the spring also.

I’ll be in touch – Take Care.

From Doug A.

Matt,

The best fishing experience I have ever had. I have fished in Alaska, Rivers Inlet, Queen Charlotte Islands, Big Bay and numerous other places around the world. Kirk was a First Class Guide and took great care to make sure we were at the right spot at the right time. He constantly checked the gear and adjusted the depth to give us the best possible chance of catching fish. We caught and released over 50 silvers and over 20 Chinooks.

The 21` Grady White boat was excellent in the Ocean, we never felt unsafe. Kirk cleaned and filleted our fish just the way we like them. He even bleed them out for us before putting them in the fish box.

Have a safe and successful season.

Thank You very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doug A.

From Brian

Hey Matt:

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the day out with you…
despite some people’s urge to “chum”! It was one of the best days we
have ever had out on the island. And the crab and salmon were amazing!
I have quite a few people eager to come out and see you now… so:

Aug 7… my birthday… how much? 2 boats… one with 4 guys… one
with 4 adults and 3 kids.

Let me know if it can be done and if so how much… I’ll have to
probably sell one of my kids to pay for it but it’ll be worth it!

Thanks,
Brian

Matt/Kirk

All four of us are unanimous in our determination our two days bouncing around on the Pacific Ocean chasing Halibut and Salmon will go on record as some of the best fishing we’ve ever experienced. The reality we all limited out both days was simply a value-added bonus to the opportunity to spend a couple of days watching ” Captain Kirk ” keep our lines in the water and coaching us to get our catches into the boat.

WestCoast Fish Expeditions is indeed a class operation Matt. ….you did deliver on your commitment to being a “Top Producer of Halibut and Salmon.” We all realize that circumstances beyond your control can result in less than limit catches and remain convinced the experience would still have been a memorable one for most who spend 8 to10 hours a day on the water with you and your guides.

Please thank Kirk for his knowledge, patience and fishing talent.
