I’m late to the party on this but while I’m rarely at a loss for words I’m not sure how much I can expand on what Brad had put down. In fact, since getting home I’ve struggled with trying to relay to the family just what a great experience it was. It really goes beyond the fishing. Truly could be the trip of a lifetime but one I hope to make an annual event.
I will second Brad’s indication that Captain Eric was exceptional. Really everyone I came into contact with was top notch and provided a high level of service. I guess my perspective is what I can add that would be different from Brad’s. From as far back as I can remember I have loved to fish – from dunking bait off my grandparent’s dock through fly-fishing exclusively during my junior high/high school years – but I’ve never fished the style that Angling Unlimited employs and have essentially no experience with saltwater fishing.
Eric, Ken, and Dave provided help without making me feel uncomfortable or preventing me from finding my way. I’d guess everyone is different and that some clients trend toward wanting folks to do it for them while others want to be left entirely to their own devices. They seemed to intuitively know and provide what was just right for me. Maybe my best endorsement of the experience would be that I’ve nothing to compare it to but have zero desire to look around at what else might be out there.
