    positive review  Dono is pure gold in fishing and in personality. I can't say I've met many people who I enjoy so thoroughly in the eight hours of meeting him. As for the trip itself it was nothing but monster cats all day long. Looking forward to doing a second trip in the near future. Thank you so much for all the laughs, this day will never be forgotten. Best Bachelor party I could have ever asked for.
