    5 star review  Went out with Brad and had an excellent fishing experience. Easily my best day on the red. Kept us on the fish, so much so that we stopped keeping track of fish. Plenty of masters hauled in. Thanks again.

    positive review  A first class operation. Donovan is a fun guy to fish with and taught me a few things about catfishing. 4 of the first 5 fish were master angler. Ended with 7 trophies total in a 4 hr trip.

    positive review  My brother, his son and my son went out for the morning with Wally on the hunt for big cats and we were amazed. We had a great time and I know we will all remember this fishing trip very fondly. Biggest fish was 38" what a blast!

    5 star review  Donavan did an amazing job guiding for us. He busted his tail to get us on fish, when the conditions were tough! He is also a really funny and genuine person, who is just a hoot to be around! He even bought me a hot chocolate at Tim Hortons lol! We can't wait to come back and fish with him again, thank you Donavan!
