What a great time we had today with Dave & June Thurber of Turns Falls, MA.
Dave & June are repeat customer for several years now and while they got to enjoy fishing with Capt Mark Shepard for a few days, I wanted to take the time to thank them for there years of loyality with a specail guided fishing trip by myself.
I know this couple from talking with them on the phone for years, but the experince of getting to know them would only begin to start while we were on the water together. Dave & June wanted to catch a few peacock bass and see the depth of the Everglades at the same time.
I picked them up early, as we headed to the Miami area in search of the hard fighting peacock bass. The ride and traffic while going there provided us with ample time to catch up of all kinds of things. Once we arrived it only took a few hours and we had all of the peacock bass they wanted to catch. By 11:30am we were on our way to the heart of the Everglades where I was hoping to educate them on the thing that were going on out here and catch a few bass. As the "fishing gods" could only provide, we rode though all kinds of wildlife to get to our fishing spot. As we stopped, I picked up a fishing rod to make a cast. Only wanting to provide an example of where to cast and how to retrive, I caught the first fish. That cast would set the example for the rest of our day, as both of them caught fish until we decided to say, that's enough!
I really enjoyed the time with the Thurber family, not only did we catch fish, have a lot of fun, but I feel like I made frinedship for a lifetime.
The honor was truely mine, I hope to get out with you on your next trip to Florida!
