2009 Comments from our Fishermen

Kim Hanson (Idaho)
Bryan, you can tell Jonathan Hillstrand of the Time Bandit (Deadliest Catch) that he has fallen to second place in my book of best fishermen. You are number one.

Mark Scarupa (Maryland)
The fish is in the freezer. Again, thank you for the wonderful time you provided and the memories. My gang will never forget.

Jim Trotter (Texas)
Just wanted to say a great big THANK YOU for making my fishing trip such a pleasure.  My one dream was to go to Alaska and fish.  You made my dream a wonderful experience. 

Evan Brickman (California)
Had a blast fishing on our three day overnight and I'm looking forward to next year!

Todd Goodnight (Pennsylvania)
I wanted to let you know what a great time I had on my charter.  Your professionalism was of the highest caliber.  You made this trip about your clients and their enjoyment, not to mention their freezers!  I had great stories to tell all of my family and friends, and the sheer excitement of all that great fishing comes back every time I tell them.

My illustrious fisherman brother, his wife, my husband, and I had the best
time EVER on our overnight combo trip. Thanks for all your help and thanks
for making it so much fun!! The Ashtikan and the voyage were luxurious,
the cove where we anchored overnight was breathtaking, the company was
interesting, and the FISHING WAS AWESOME. We limited out on all counts and
we even let some really big ones go. We appreciated your knowledge and
your willingness to share it along with your hilarious stories. We hope you're
available when we get another chance to visit Homer. Captain B's rocks.

Jack Chalifoux and family (British Columbia)
 We all had a great time. Everyone had a few sore muscles the next day. You made our day very enjoyable. Compliments to both. WE are showing our pictures to everyone. Thanks again

I have gone Long range halibut fishing with you three times over the past years (2002.2004, & 2007).  We got your brochure and note in the mail today....thanks for that.  We have always enjoyed our trips on board the Ashtikan and are looking forward to another next year in 2010. 

Stacy and Josh Vox( Minnesota)
Thank you so much for a memorable first time halibut fishing!  We are definitely hooked!  Captain Brian and Jeremy were great and so helpful, it truly made the whole experience that much better.  We couldn't have asked for a better captain or deckhand, always there to give a helping hand, advise or to cheer you on.  We will be back and will ONLY book with Captain Brian.
Thanks so much~

We wanted to thank you for a great day of fishing. You put us on the fish and together with Jeremy were a big help getting our entire family to their limits!  It was great to watch Derek (11), Sammy (9), and Sarah battle their Homer Halibuts (even though I was a bit worried when they all limited out before I landed one).  We already have a neighborhood party scheduled so that we can share our fish. We all really enjoyed the speed and comfort of the Ashtikan -- she made the day on the water a real pleasure for everyone.  We hope to have the chance to fish with you again in the future.  Thanks again,
Steven Frasier (Oregon)
We spent a couple days fishing with Bryan aboard his beautiful boat. Caught many halibut and rockfish. There was never a moment when we didn't have a fish on. Quite a few times a halibut was biting before the bait hit the bottom. Bryan and his deck hand , Jeremy, were very helpful to the novice fisherman.
It was nice to fish in a beautiful setting with only a few people on his 6 person boat.  
Although we didn't land the big one, Bryan went out of his way to fish several different areas to try to land the lunker. Bryan, thanks for the great fishing and life long memories.

Ron and Angela Simpson (Indiana)
Angela and would like to thank you for a great experience in Alaska.
You and Jessie made our trip a great memory. Never dreamed we would catch so many fish. Every thing was first class and as good as promised.
Hope to return to Alaska soon.

Joe Schroer and crew (South Carolina)
We had a great time fishing with on the Ashtikan. What an adventure! The trip turned out to be everything we hoped for and then some.
