Hi Todd! We want to thank you again for taking us and the kids out for fishing and sight seeing. We all had a great time and have been talking about it all weekend, believe it or not it was the best part of our trip!
Thank you again!
Aida, Dan, Isaac and Olivia

Hi Todd,

Thanks again for the fishing trip this week. My son really enjoyed the fishing and seeing the lobster traps! We'll be looking forward to another trip next summer. Attached is a picture of the mackerel we cooked that night on the grill. It was really good and came out great, even my kids ate it.

Matt Krugman

Hi Todd,

thanks again for the great fishing trip, it was fantastic!.........i know you are very busy but could you please send me the pictures that you took of me and my son i would really appreciate it.


Peter Klym

Hello! Thank you for two awesome fishing trips. They were the highlight of our vacation in Maine. We appreciate your expertise & willingness to work with us. While we've always had fun, nothing compares to reeling in fish after fish. From the run of mackerel to the stripers, that was crazy, insane fun - even in the rain on Friday. Keith is envious. I believe his comment when told how many fish we caught was "that's ridiculous". At the motel, a Canadian couple were asking about the fish & where we caught them. I talked you up, told them what a great time we had, & gave them a brochure. I hope they decided to book a trip. I have plenty of pics. I will try to send along the best. I can also include a pic of one of the "closed" telephone poles. Lol


Jen Susa

HI, Todd

I just want to thank you again for a great day fishing with you today. I especially appreciate all the personal help you gave me with maneuvering the "Fighting Chair". It really enhanced the fun of fishing. I look forward to fishing with you and my gang many times again in the future. I have a great story about boarding a launch in New York Harbor from a fixed dock. It's too long to tell here, but I will try to remember to tell you next time we go out. Then you will have a better idea of what kind of nut I really am. See you again soon. Oh, I think you undercharged us by ten dollars. We'll settle it up next time.

Thanks again,

Dan Dunitz

Hey Capt. Todd,

A week has gone by since we've been back from vacation and all we want to do is get back out on your boat. Lila hasn't stopped talking about her fishing and lobstering and Kristen wanted to go back out the second we got back to the dock. I'm the lucky one that gets to go back out in a week! You definitely have a kids trip every year with us now, at least until Lila is old enough to do a full day with the guys and I. I hope your camping went well and I will see you next Saturday. Can't thank you enough, -Jeff


Thank you the amazing trip yesterday. My family and I were talking nonstop about it all last night. UNFORGETABLE!!! Which brings me to my next question. We all we love a chance to go on a 1/2 day coastal if there are any times available this week. Please let me know if you have anything and I'll pass it along to my guys. Thanks again. - Ed C

Hi Todd,

Hi Todd. Just wanted to pass along our thanks for a great day on the water. We all enjoyed fishing for blues. Colin wont let s forget he caught the largest fish of the day. Hopefully our schedule will allow us to make another trip next spring. Enjoy the rest of the season and have a great camping vacation. GO BRUINS. Take care. - Joe D

Hello, thanks to your efforts at making last sunday's short fishing productive, you have made a young boy and his ''gang'' very happy. As mentionned, we (4 seniors) are rerurning to O.O.B. on labor day for a few days. We are looking forward to a 1/2 day fishing tour. What would you suggest as the best time period, Morning, mid-day or evening? We will contact you once in O.O.B. Henri

Hi Capt. Todd,

Just wanted to drop you an email letting you know how much we appreciated you taking us out and putting us on the fish Saturday. We all had a great weekend. I hate thinking that in another hour I'll be pumping oil again. Also, I wanted to let you know, you've made us local celebrities. We walked down to the beach after we left you and there were people there that were recognizing us as "the guys on the boat". The 2 babes in bikinis and their boyfriends were pointing at us and one older guy actually was videotaping steven reeling in his 39 incher but not because of the fish. He thought he was going to have video of us going over in the swells. Super nice guy though, he caught pretty much the whole fight and is going to email it to steven. Also later that night the old guy that was fishing just south of the rocks when steven got his fish was walking his dog and we happened to be outside the cottage and he recognized us. Thanks for an awesome weekend and I hope you have a good winter. Enjoy the Caribbean.

Thanks again, -Jeff Daigle

Good morning Captain Todd,

Thursday morning was a fun, exciting time and a great experience for all of us. The boys truly enjoyed it, catching the mackerel was fun for them and they cannot wait to go again. The bluefish was the biggest one that I've every caught or seen for that matter. It felt like I was reeling in a small car. And of coarse the overall best part was getting on the stripers. The only problem was with Cathy hauling in that 41" striper, I haven't heard the end of it from everyone that she caught a bigger fish than me. Ha-ha that's fishing! Todd, once again thank you for a great time and experience and we can't wait to come fish with you again.

Sincerely, Cathy, Kevin, Alex & Jerry

Captain Todd,

Thanks to you and the Grace of God, I caught the biggest fish of my life, a 34" Striper. I was on the your charter on Monday July 11, 2011 at 10 a.m. with Chris and Geno. I would be much obliged if you would send the pictures to the e-mail address attached. . I'm hoping you still have the picture. Thanks again for a job well done!

Best Regards Brian Runstedler

Hey Todd,

I'm gonna send you the pictures one at a time to manage file sizes better. Hope its not too much of a pain in the butt. Thanks again for an awesome fishing trip, and thanks for putting up with a foursome of rookies!

Lookin forward to next year! -JEFF

Captain Todd,

Thanks for a great day fishing for stripers on Thursday! Here are the pictures (downsized; the originals are about 1.5 MB in size) you requested. I believe striper2 is the 42 incher and striper5 is the even bigger one (I'm grimacing because it's about 20 pounds). I think I didn't take a picture of the last one that I landed.

Of course, it took me about 5 hours to carve the bass into steaks and fillets, but they all fit in my green cooler plus another foam cooler that I bought, and they all made it home properly chilled on ice. And, of course, they were very delicious!

Thanks again. I'll be sure to refer my friends to you if any of them are up that way!



I'm back in Newport, RI, and my brother in law has returned to Chicago, IL. Before the dust has settled we are already telling stories about our fishing in Maine. We had a great time, and what a perfect introduction to all that Maine has to offer; from the seals, to the geography, to the awesome fishing. Thanks for a great trip, it was all first rate. We are looking forward to doing it again. Until then, fair winds and calm seas.

-Scott Efflandt

HI Todd, As promised, here are some photos from our successful fishing charter with you last Tuesday. We all really enjoyed our time on your boat, and will highly recommend you to others. The bass was delicious!! Everyone who has seen our photos is very impressed with our catch! Thanks again for providing such a fun experience. We hope to see you again in the future. Take care,

-Tom, Nancy and Alex Cooney

THANKS Capt Todd for another great trip. While you warned us that the fish had not been biting we were optimistic and you certainly did your best to lure what was in the area to the boat. I’ll take a few hours on the water over a few hours in the office any day. Glad we got a picture of the fish that was a half inch too small to keep. The family was thinking it must have been “small” until they saw the photo! Pictures of our catches are included. Hope to see you next year. We’ll look for ourselves on your website in a few weeks.

-Pat Burke


Hi Todd, Thanks for everything yesterday! The guys had a great time! Pete, especially, as he has wanted to go for a long time. They are already talking about going again next year! Andrew cut the fish into beautiful filets, and cleaned and preped a few for grilling. He baked a haddock last night - delicious! It was a fantastic day! "So nice that the weather cooperated too!! Thanks again!! Have a great summer!


Todd, Hows the fishing, had a good time the last couple of times I went out with you. We may be down in august not sure yet. We'll be sure to give you a call

thank you for a great day of sightseeing and fishing. We really had a good time on the Trina Lyn! You were prepared for all our needs, and all the extras you thought of were icing on the cake. Let's do it again next year!

Your friends from Oklahoma, Joe, Marcy, and Joey Carrick

Hey Captain Todd

Just wanted to Thank you for a great day.We learned alot and had a great time fishing.We are already planning to come back and fish with you again next year. Again Thanks again and see you next summer

Mark And Jenn Aldrich

CaptainTodd, Thanks so much for the trips this summer. Griff is amazed with your ability to put us on fish all the time! I really enjoy our outings as well. We'll get signed up for next year by Christmas. Thanks again,


Hey Captain Todd, We just wanted to express our Thanks for giving us the opportunity to take one of your fishing trips. We called you that morning and you took our family out that evening and we really appreciate it. You made our kids week on vacation. We plan on taking another vacation at Old Orchard next year so we will be seeing you again next year, and this time we will book ahead advance. We came home and ate the striper and it was great. Thanks again for a memorable time.

The Langlais Family Ron, Lucy, Austin and Noah

Hi Todd: We had guests that went out fishing with you today and came back singing your praises. Not only did they catch alot of fish, they claimed you knew just where to go for the best catch. I think he said he caught 17 sea bass and we have two of the fillets in our freezer. Since we list you on our website, we wanted you to know you made happy campers of our guests from New York City! Thanks so much for taking good care of them. Dick and Patte Kessler Nautilus By The Sea Guest House 2 Colby Avenue PO Box 7276 Ocean Park, ME 04063 1-800-981-7018

CaptainTodd, Thanks so much for our fishing trip - we will definitely give out your name and return again... We had some great Lemon Pepper Striper and Jerk Bass last night - Let us know when the photos are posted!

The Murrays

Captain Todd, I just wanted to write and say what a great time we had on the Trina Lyn. Although the weather wasn't the best, it was a blast. Friday morning was a little chilly but the four of us were looking forward to the trip. Once we got out to the spot you picked, you were very helpful in explaining the procedures for fishing with the salt water tackle we were using. As my buddy Steve and I are used to fresh water tackle this was much appreciated. My son Chris and his friend Scott caught the first two Stripers of the day (leave it to the 9 year olds to show off in front of their Dads). All told we landed about twelve Stripers. We will definitely be back for more!! Thank you for a great time.

John Norris Connecticut

Hello Todd, Just a quick note about our success onboard the Trina Lyn. We had a blast! My kids will never forget reeling in fish after fish. They are already buzzing about next year! Thanks to you and your expert guidance, we had a great day. Thanks again,

Phil Kearney Rutland, VT


We had a great time! It was the highlight of our trip in Maine. You got my wife Amy hooked on fishing. My friend Bob called me today and asked when we are going to go back. We'd like to do an 8 hour charter next time.

Thanks Again, Keith Ackerknecht

Hey Todd,

Just a note to thank you for such a great fishing experience 8/6/06!! Made it back to Indiana with no problems and my parents loved the fish. Haven't found my picture on your site yet, but there are so many; I might have missed it. Everyone thought that it was very cool that I had such a great time on a fishing charter with my name. It was the best fishing trip that I have been on so far and Kristi and Karen loved it as well. Hopefully we will make it back to Maine next year and go fishing with you again. Take care and thanks again for fitting us in on such short notice.


Hey Captain Todd, this is Nicholas Rowe and i just wanted to thank you for the awsome fishing trip. We eat the stripers that night and they were great. I also dropped off those brochures for you where i was staying. I can't wait till next summer because i am defenetly going fishing with you again.

Thanks again,
Nicholas Rowe

Hi Todd, Just wanted to tell you how much fun I had! I have to admit I thought my Uncle Phil (Kearney) was out of his mind when he told me we were going fishing at 6:00 AM! but ...I have to say.... I AM HOOKED! I have lived in Maine now for 4 years and this was the best experience ever! Thanks again! and I am sure we will all see you next year!

Angela Sanborn

Hay Captain Todd, Made it back to NH just fine. Wanted to drop a quick line to thank you for the great time fishing. Looking forward to seeing pic's on web site. The two day's fishing with you was the best part of the trip. Looking forward to sporting my new T shirt and visior when I recieve them. You have been bragged about here in Keene, NH. Don't be surprised if a few customers come your way. Again thank you.

Carl Cormier and family.

Todd, I have been fishing as long as I can remember and last Saturday was one of my better days. We didn't catch big fish but we caught many fish. All my buddies really had a good time and I just wanted to say thanks. You made our week-end!! Can you e-mail me those pictures of our trip, the guys are hounding me for them.

Thanks Again, Peter Russo

Captain Todd, Thanks. I have been on many deep sea fishing trips only to get nothing. I really appreciate your knowlegde of the waters, it means alot! I see why my father Carl is a repeat customer, we acually caught fish . I'm sure my "Fish Call" had something to do with it !! I will be a repeat customer as well, and I promise to give Dave a few pointers before we return.

Thanks again Anthony Cormier

We had such a fantastic time fishing with you the morning of August 19, thank you very, very much. We hope to get back up for the Labor Day weekend heading out on Thursday evening 9/1 and heading home on 9/5. What might you have available? Would love to see the pics of our catches so we have evidence of our fish tales!! lol

Kathleen Scionti Don Fickle, Jr. Collin, Tristan, & Kaitlyn

Todd thanks again for a great trip. We all truly enjoyed your company as not just a great captain, but a great person. We caught a lot more then we could have hoped for, but unfortunately didn't have a camera to document our catches. If possible could you please email me the pictures that you took from the trip on Wednesday 8/3. Thanks again.

The boys from Vermont: Rich, Geoff, Billy and Larry Thanks, Rich

Capt. Todd, Thanks again for another GREAT Striper fishing trip! The girls still can't believe about how sore their arms were from all the stripers they landed,. We did come up with a count of 15 stripers caught and now they believe how great last years trip with you was. Danielle's boyfriend is green with envy, as none of his fishing trips can compare to a day on the 'Trina Lyn'. I'll see you again in a few weeks with the boys from Yourplayingcards.com for a repeat of last years trip.

Tim Barker

Capt. Todd, I can't tell you what a great time we had fishing aboard the Trina Lyn. The top-water fishing techniques you showed us really helped bring in the Bluefish. At one point, everyone in our group had a fish on line. It was like a fishing show without any editing!

Thanks for the awesome time, Larry Finn

Trip: Sunday, July 25, 2004 On Saturday night we spent a few hours going over fishing strategies and enjoying some cold beverages with Captain Todd. Being the responsible one, the Captain retired early to prepare for Sunday's bluefishing trip while the rest of our party stayed out until the wee hours. The following morning was sun drenched and gorgeous. A perfect day for fishing. Captain Todd told us that the blues were hitting just beyond the mouth of the river and so we headed out that way. The Captain found a spot to his liking and with the first two casts, we had two blues. It continued like that for the next hour or so. We caught a bunch, missed a bunch, lost some lures, sweated out our hangovers, and had a great time. Top-water bluefish action with the Captain on the Trina Lyn is as good as it gets.


Hey Todd, Great day on Saturday- We 'Smoked em" I look forward to getting up there again soon and I also passed along your name to associates so you should be hearing from a few of those as well. When you get time, lets discuss your new brochures and rack cards, I will do them in trade for fishing. Thanks again for a great trip Dave

Hey Todd Just a short note to say Thank You for the great time. Had a blast catching Bluefish. Looking forward to next time. Thanks again Bruce Harvey hr>

Captain Todd, Thanks for another exciting fishing trip. Next year we will be coming up to Maine a week later; perhaps the fishing will be better. Jordan enjoyed the trip as well and as been telling everyone that he caught a fish.

Thanks again. Jen, Dan, and Jordan Susa

Captain Todd, Thanks so much for giving my dad a great fishing trip on 7/15. He and my brother had an absolute blast and are already talking about when they can go again. You really made their trip a good one. If you wouldn't mind could you email me any pictures you took? Of course they couldn't figure out how to use the camera. Never said they were smart. Thanks again for everything!

Karen Chiurri

Hello, Todd. This is Lisa Daughtrey. You really do keep your website up to date. I've been showing it to anyone who I can drag over for a look. Lends credibility to my fish stories, but you could have left out the part about screwing up your pole. It ruins my rep as a professional fisherman you know. Those fish felt heavier than 7-10 lbs. Are you sure they don't gain weight after being in the freezer? (Just kidding.) Seriously, my brother, dad, stepmom and I had a wonderful time on your boat. We found Cape Elizabeth and the Lobster Shack without a problem thanks to your directions. I hope you have success with the remainder of your fishing season. Thanks again.

Lisa Daughtrey

Captain Todd, Thanks for another exciting fishing trip. Next year we will be coming up to Maine a week later; perhaps the fishing will be better. Jordan enjoyed the trip as well and as been telling everyone that he caught a fish. Thanks again.

Jen, Dan, and Jordan Susa

Hey, Todd Just wanted to say thanks again, for having us aboard, we had a blast, never caught fish that large before. We are already planning, for next year. Take care, and thanks again. ALLEN HARVEY.

Hey Captain Todd, Don't know if you'll remember me or not. Doesn't matter, I fished with you about 5 years ago in and around July 5th. Party of 4, We landed over 50 fish that day. Iv'e deep sea fished since I was a kid, and that is one of the most memorable days fishing I've ever had . Action was incredible, I'll never forget it. Id like dates available for in and around July 12th, and the 25th. Also, do you do whole days in July? While going over your testimonials, I couldn't help notice that July 1st and 2nd week seem to be pretty good for stripers. Any suggestions? Can't wait to here from you.

Sincerely and still Impressed, Rolland Gerhart Vermont

Hi Todd, Rocky, Kurt (Wogy) and I had a great time on your boat Sunday. I just gotta say, I tried the Cod today and it was Excellent! Now I wish I would have saved more� but there�s always next time. I�m also sorry to say that the tagged one we caught won�t be registered because I seem to have lost the tag. I�m very sorry about that. I would love to have a copy of the pictures you took though. Anyway, have a good one and until next time,


Captain Todd it's paul I had lots of fun on you boat incase you forgot im the kid that you basicly caught the striper for. me my dad and uncles are planing to come with you next year because you seem to no what your doing anyway I got to go talk to you later


Hi Todd,
We've seen the great pictures on internet! Thanks again for these unforgettables moments with you. Max was a bit disappointed that he couldn't get a fish by himself. May be next time! 

Take care 

Danyèle Martin and Max. 

I just want to thank you one more time for showing my kids and I such a great time. Starting with catching mackerel and finishing the day by catching 6 striped bass proved to be a great day for us all. Please tell me how we can book you again next year. Germaine, Adam and I definitely want to catch bass again and you are the Captain of our choice. You really mean it when you say �kids are welcome�. 

Please feel free to use me as reference if the need ever arises. My contact information is in your trip book. Thanks again!

Richard Scott

Captain Todd,
Just a note of thanks for the great trip. It was great to finally break the ice with a Striper, and almost as much fun to watch the kids catch Mackerel by the bucket. Just plain nice to see you again too.

I will be in touch soon, might try to get another trip in before the season ends. Let me know when you need more maple candy, got lots more where that came from. Take care and stay safe.

Greg, Jason, Griffin and Colby 

I just wanted to pass along my thanks and appreciation for your time last week. Maria and I both really enjoyed fishing and spending some time on the Trina Lyn.

As for the Captain's notes, I was not too shocked to see that you waited till I was out of state before you decided to put up that rag time about my wife outfishing me every which way you can imagine. Keep it up tough guy. Don't be so quick to drink whatever I offer you next year, for there might be a mutiny in its infancy developing.
All joking aside, thanks again for a great time and we look forward to next year. If you ever need something when your in Boston let me know and I'll do whatever I can.

Dave Cahill

Thanks for a great day of fishing last Wednesday (10:00 am trip). It was the best fishing experience I have ever had. I am looking forward to a trip on the Trina Lyn for next year already. Can you please e-mail me a copy of the pictures that you took of our trip. Our party included my brother-in-law Shawn Smith and my daughters Chelsea and Candace.

Thanks again

I would like to commend Captain Todd and the Trina Lyn. I am a native of Biddeford Maine and now live in Colorado. We were recently on vacation and I took my kids on a fishing trip on the Trina Lyn. As a kid growing up my dad took us frequently on charters, but to the best of my memory this trip stands out as the best one we've ever experienced. The Captain and his vessel get two-thumbs up.
Thanks, Again,

Wayne, Anthony and Cecilia D'Amico

Capt. Todd,
Just wanted to drop a note to ya. Went fishing w/u two yrs. ago w/my boys (Kyle, Craig) and a friend of mine, Terry "rip the lips off" West. We came up from Indiana and are still talkin about the trip and showin off the pictures we took. Due to my mother-in-laws death this month, our vacation (South Dakota) was changed to just smaller weekend trips w/friends and family. Rarely a campfire conversation doesn't include a memory of the Trina Lyn fishin trip and my youngest still talks of catchin the mackerel. Had a few minutes of down time and just wanted to thank u for the good time and believe me, we will get back up there in the near future. Appreciate ur web-site as it keeps the memories alive. Hope to see ya again soon,

Kevin Schlemmer

Just wanted first of all to thank you for working with us in making this fishing trip happen. for our nephew it was his first time and he couldn't stop talking about it. We have been on a couple of other charters, but yours got the vote for the best and everyone wants to book for another trip. I went on the website to see if you might have got a picture of the guys, but couldn' t see it. my husband didn't really capture any good shots. oh, well. 
I didn't get a chance to touch base with you to see if you ever received my check in the mail. I think if you haven't I will stop payment on it, so that someone else doesn't get a hold of it and try to cash it. If you did receive it, please e-mail me back and at that point if you could just tear it up I would be fine with that. I don't think it is necessary to mail back to me.

Once again thanks so much for the memorable fishing trip to Maine and be assured that we will be spreading the word here in Vermont and calling again for a repeat charter

Hi Todd, I can't beleive it's been 2 weeks since we went out on your boat.
I met to email you as soon as we got home to thank you for the wonderful time we had. It was the first trip, couldn't have asked for better weather and lots of fun catching those stripers. I saw Trey's picture on your site. Thanks. It makes him feel great!! And of course, mom too.
When you had me reel in that first one, I felt like a idiot because I didn't know what to do. But it was fun and a laugh for all I'm sure.  You did tell me to remind you to send me the other pics that you took. That would be great if you could do that.
Again - I want to thank you for the fun time we had and beleive me - It won't be our last. We may try a full day next year. But at least a half day anyway if all goes well.
We have also referred you to a few people already that I 'm sure will be calling you next summer. At least 2 couples. We also told the people that own the sunset Motel and cabins that they they told us the right place to go and told them to have you first on the list of referrals. She said she knows you.
Take care and keep up the good work.

Linda, Reg, Trey and Dan
PS - If I'd known you had young kids, I would have sugested you bring them along. We LOVE kids and I run my own daycare here at home.

Keep smiling

Obviously didn't get to try again this year. Thanks for a great four hours. Made my vacation at any rate. Haven't forgotten about getting you a Camelbak from the exchange. Soon as I am off leave, I will get it to you. Take care and a belated Happy Birthday. Hope your surprise was enjoyable.

Greg Knight

Thanks for another fun day and the extra time you spent with us. Charlie and I had a blast , that was the most beers we drank fishing yet


Thanks again, we had an excellent time. The picture of us on your web site came out good. I'll try to book as soon as possible for next year.


Hello Todd, Just wanted to send you a note of thanks for our fishing trip on the 4th.
Although we landed only four fish that day it was still an enjoyable experience.

Thanks again.

Jim Lapointe

Hey Capt.Todd, 
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know what a great time we had fishing. 

Oh, I took the time to read the capt.'s notes and was suprised to see that you mentioned me and my buddies, it was great reading about the week with everyone. 

Thanks again for a great time and learning experience, I look forward to future trips. 

David Uszynski

Captain Todd,
Thank you for the really nice fishing trip. I had a great time!

Cheyenne Lewandowski

Just a short note (I just got home from Maine 5 minutes ago) to tell you "thank you" for a couple of really great trips on the Trina Lyn.

As always, your professionalism, skill, sense of humor, and dedication to your customers, have paid off in some big smiles and great memories.

My nephews (Jonathon and Jordan) can't wait until their next charter. This was Jordan's first trip, and he loved it.

Your friend, and loyal customer, 

:o) Bryan Callaghan

Dear Captain Todd,
We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed fishing for mackrel + strippers with you. It was a day we will all remember. We were hoping to see our picture on your web site. We fished with you on Tuesday, July 25th.

Thank you, Luke, Samantha, Cathy + Chris Giugliano.

If you want to send us an email
Hey Captain Todd: We drove home from Ocean Park yesterday and on the way I asked each of the kids the best time of our short week in Maine. Jims was the 34" Striper he took on the Trina Lynn, Pat was the 5 stripers he took, Elizabeth was the Mackeral she caught and her job as live well bait catcher for us. Mine was watching the kids excitement fishing on the Trina Lynn. Thanks for a great trip. 20 stripers and 100+ mackeral was a great day of fishing. Our second year out with you and even better than the first. This is at least an annual event for us. I will forward pictures as soon as I get them developed. Hope your summer is a good one. We will be in touch. Thanks again!

Steve Dandeneau, CT

Hi Todd,
I just wanted to let you know what a great time we had. Your patience and direction with my kids was refreshing, your'e outgoing manner was pleasurable. You made our mini vacation a memorable one.Our only regret is that of not having more time to fish-that is definatly a yearly event for us. ( I have to return to get the ones that got away!) 

Thanks again, sincerly

Beth Moschetti

Todd, We had a great time fishing with you. We looked for the picture on your website but haven't seen it yet, so all I can do is hope my Nebraska friends don't think I'm lying. Are you going to put my picture on the website? If you have time drop me a line and tell me how the fishing is going.
Again thanks for the great time.

Rich Owens

Hi Captain Todd,
Just wanted to drop you a line and to thank you for a great fishing charter on the 4th. My father told me that he had as much fun as he has ever had fishing and that goes for me too. He also wanted to thank you for returning his thermos. I'm already looking forward to next year. Thanks again and I'll be in touch. The pictures on you website were awesome, could you send them to me via email so I can print them out and show my father. Thanks again.- Jim Lapointe

I got my computer back up and I received all the pictures as did my brother.

Thanks a million, you have gone above and beyong the call. If you had just retouched about 35 pounds off of me they would have been perfect. Look forward to going out with you again on my next visit.


West Virgina Walt

Saw the photo of us on the web site. We sure got alot of fish that day, had a GREAT time.. Hope to see you this year around the end of August or so... Is the fishing better in August or the 5th of July ??? We'll find out
Terry Fitzgerald and Loren Fitzgerald

Looks great Todd, Only problem I did have was on the initial note, I tried using the Send E-mail option, but it kept coming up with an error saying address not specified. But I managed to get around it. Had a great time and I'll contact you later about booking for next year. Thanks again for sending the pictures
- Brian Gambero

We had a great time fishing, both my sons ( and me too ) each caught one in the last hour of the trip. You did take some digital pictures of them. If you still have them would you email me a copy. Thanks and I hope to hook up with you next summer. Send me your spring/summer/fall schedule

Hi Todd,
You took me and my two boys out on Aug. 9th. Had a great time.

Rich Frantz

Hope things are going well and that the fishing is good,

Todd: your pictures came through fine ; i was a fishing hero at work all week.
I'm sorry i took so long to answer your mail but derek came down with a really nasty case of the chicken pox on tuesday. the poor kid looks like somebody has been using him as a shotgun target.

i also wanted to thank you for your compliment to derek about him being such a good fisherman. he didn't say anyhting but i could tell he was pretty proud; i think it meant a lot to him to have a professional charter captain say that. 

hope the rest of your season goes well.


Just wanted to thank you for a great day of fun.....although the weather wasn't very good you still made the trip fun.
We are looking forward to another trip, if not this year, definatly next year.

Still looking for some good maple syrup for you, will mail it when we get a good price.

Thank you again

Faith and Jim Nelson

We enjoyed the day. 7 strippers landed plus more we missed made it fun and the company was good.

We had a good trip. That's two in a row. Have told some friends about our trip. Have given your web page and email address to them. Hopefully you'll hear from them.

Thanks again.

Al and Kay

Had a great time fishing again, and it was good to keep the pole on the boat this time!!
Hope we get into another school of stripers next year, cause I know this time I'll get one

Hi Capt.,
Got home tonight. Received the picture and it looks great!!!

Thanks a million for the day on the water. We had a Fantastic time! Two of the filets made a delicious chowder. We'll be eating the rest very soon. Will definitely be back next year.

Did you get the money order yet? Please let me know.

Thanks again, Kevin, Kyle, & Bob







It will be pleasure to fish with you again if I have the opportunity. We enjoyed ourselves very much in June.
I hope we can get together again this fall. Thanks again.

had a great time, even if the stripers were a little "bashful". I never would have believed that fish could be taken on a bare hook. Bryan Callaghan

Just sending a note of thanks from myself (Jim), Bob, Todd,and Dan for our trip on Friday, 7/2 for Dan's bachelor party. We are bummed that we got rained out and had to end early but all agreed it was a really good time. As you know, the next day was beautiful and sunny (of course!). In any case, we are hoping to take you up on a return trip sometime later in August or in September - Jim White

You had told us to sent you an email and you would send us the pictures you took while we were fishing, just wanted to let you know that we had a great time fishing with you and THANKS AGAIN.

Hey Captain Todd you have my picture from Sunday morning (7/2), I was the younger kid that caught the 33 inche striper. If you could send me the picture, I would appreciate it very much. The trip was great, we all had a lot of fun.

Thank you,

Hi Todd, how is everything? I just went out in New London CT last Sunday and had a great day of fishing for Blues. They were in we had many double and a couple of triples. I want to thank you for your outstanding charter in August. I plan to see you next year to do it again. I am going down to Florida at the end of the month to fish for some grouper. Can't wait. Todd keep up the great work. I would like to say that you are a true fishing charter that ensures that everyone has a great time fishing with you. If you are ever free at the end of April and want to catch some stripers in the CT River let me know and I will take you out on my boat. Take care Dave Henchey

Capt. Todd,
Just wanted to let you know we had a great time on Tuesday. It will definately be a trip to tell others about.
