Left the dock at first light, made the run to Little Lake. The bite started out a little slow didn't last long soon we were pulling them in, sometimes 2 at a time. Fished with double rigs with swimming… Read Full Report →

BCC was beyond expectations. Capt. Tony and Capt. Joel were more like old friends. Couldn’t ask for more, except maybe more trout to cooperate.  Hahaha
Very satisfied with this trip. Will be back.

The day started off rainy but we had the option of going anyway. Capatain Nick found us a nice place to fish. We caught 5 fish per person within an hour and it was over just like that. Liked the experience just thought it was going to be a true half day. Didn’t even need to bring snacks or water but I’m not a fisher and I was able to get some catches pretty easy. Just thought there would be more to it. Felt kind of silly spending $400 for an hour and a half.

Fished with this captain previously and the experience is tremendous.  Couldn’t do enough to try and find the best fishing holes.  Great with young people…polite, kind and helpful in teaching the youngsters good fishing skills.  Prepare for a super trip…

Got a late start because of the rain, but nobody can control the weather. Made sure we got into some fish, had a good time. Would definitely recommend.

We had a good day even though conditions weren’t best.  Mixed bag, mostly reds.  But the main thing was Capt. Joel, super gentleman and did everything he could to get us in fish.  Even willing to stay out to help us with limits.  I suggest giving him a try you won’t be dissappointed!
