My son was turning 11 and loves fishing. He loves fishing and has a bucket list, of those species he has seen and studied but never caught. Brian Barton was the perfect guide to help me. Brian took time to listen to what we were after, got a game plan for us, and ran all over the lake to add a couple extra species to my son’s list. Brian’s boat, gear, and relaxed manner set us up for a great afternoon. I quickly realized the importance of having someone who has spent his entire life on this part of the river. We hit a couple of “ holes “ he said would have the species we wanted and they did. My son got all his bucket list of species plus a couple to boot. Brian was a total professional and delivered the perfect birthday trip for my son. After 120 plus pounds of fish, we were worn out and loving life. Thanks Brian and look forward to next year.
