      Booked a half day trip, caught so many big "cats" that it started to get "passé"
    Will definitely recommend and book 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  Thanks again Donovan, today was truly a memorable trip. A first for cat fishing for all of us. Boys are still comparing stories. It was a wet day that you turned into a very memorable one. Everything was absolutely great...hope to see you again next year �

    positive review  Had an amazing time fishing for catfish on the river. The guide service could not have been better. If I try and think of anything that could have been done better I can’t name one single thing. Not only did Donovan set us up for some amazing fishing, he helped create memories that my family and I will forever cherish. I highly recommend.

    positive review  First Class trip with Donovan. He was on time, had everything we needed to fish and put us on the Cats very quickly. Spent a 1/2 day and caught lots of fish, many masters. Donovan explained things well and has a great personality. He is well suited for guiding. Thanks for the awesome experience!
