Heath was not friendly at all. Very rude. Caught no fish, except two small trout. No keepers.

Nelda, I sincerely apologize if I came about as being rude in our brief encounter before your kids came fishing with me. Customer service and satisfaction is something I strive to keep at my highest standard. Although the two fish you mentioned were not the only fish we caught that day. I unfortunately cannot guarantee that the fish will bite. I would have loved for you to have personally been on the boat fishing with us. I know sometimes people may get the wrong impression of a person when only speaking to them for a brief minute. I appreciate your criticism and will work on improvement with future clientele.
