Captain,
I just got home from vacation and wanted to let you know how much my group enjoyed fishing with you. Besides us letting so many fish off we thought the day was perfect. We thank you for hooking us up with some of the greatest fishing action we have ever experienced. Hope the rest of your season goes well. I am sending along some of our pictures just in case you may want to use them.

Hi Capt John,
Just wanted to report that my guys, Bob, Scott, Chris,and Mike had a wonderful time fishing with you on your Charter Cruise! They haven't stopped talking about it and are planning another one for this fall at St. Joseph, Mich.

They probaly already discussed that with you. It was a birthday present for Bob from our three sons. They have been taliing about doing this for years and finally did it. So Thank You for giving them the time of their lives. They all really
needed that bonding.

Scott said that you took a picture of them. Yes, we would love to have copies!
Will you be putting it on your web site too? They are anxious to see it. Chris will be returning to Florida on Tuesday, but I will send it to him.

I can't wait to eat the fish! I love to watch fishing shows and watch the fishermen in Ludington when they fish off shore and on the channel going up to the dam. When the boys were little, they got a kick out of having the fisherman stand their big samon next to them and see how big they were. That was a real treat. I'm a photographer, so I enjoy taking pictures of them. I'm a rotten fisherman as I can't stand to bait the hook. Smile I get to excited and would probably fall off the boat. Smile So I'll leave the fishing to the guys!


Thank You Again,
Millie & Bob
Chris, Scott and Mike Johnson

Captain John,

You certainly did yourself proud last Saturday! Mark and I had a supertrip. Your ability to adapt to the conditions and fish movements was spectacular. The fact that the weather turned around so nicely after a cold/wet start was a bonus.
I expect you'll get a couple of new customers out of the deal, too. Mark is a very successful businessman (in the product design field), and he's now "hooked." He told me he can't wait to fish with you again, possibly with a couple of his customers, or maybe up in Manistee with me in August for a "tuna" search and destroy mission. A couple of guys who ride the commuter train with Mark and me every morning were so impressed
with the pictures we showed them (especially the one of the bigger of the two lakers we released) that they asked for your name and contact information, I told him to call you ASAP, since you'll be off to Lake Erie before long, and there aren't many open dates left for St. Joseph 2006.
I called "farmer Brad" and his son Brent, and had them check out the two pictures taken during our trip posted on your site. They called me back right away, full of questions about how we found the "huge" kings, and whether I thought some of them (or their friends) might still be lurking around St. Joseph the second weekend in May. I told them I'm sure there will be some king "action," and they're chompin' at the bit - especially Brent.

The fillets were delicious - my son and I had huge (about 20 oz.) pieces of King cooked on the grill Sunday afternoon, and then I fried up those very small fillets for my wife when she returned from out of town on Monday evening. She devoured them! Everyone in my neighborhood was grilling fish Sunday and Monday, so you helped me make a lot of enthusiastic fish-eaters very happy, John. Thanks again for the great day!



Best Regards,
Mac McCaleb

Capt. John,
Had a great time fishing with you and appreciated all the hard work you put in to catch us some fish. We had a great time and will talk about it for years I am sure. Lake Michigan and your boat was a thrill. Thanks again for the right fit with the crew and fisherman.

I've been on many guided trips over the years. You operate a very professional boat, and your concern for and insistence on boat safety and attention to conditions is refreshing and appreciated. I would be pleased to offer my recommendation on your behalf. Look forward to seeing you again.

John

Just wanted to shoot you a quick email and thank you again for one of my all time favorite fishing experiences. Everything from the company to the weather to the 8 pounder that I was able to bring into the boat was perfect and that combo doesn't happen often. I would love to Salmon fish with you this fall when you get your charter business going. You can count on me to be one of Michigan Sport-fishing's first paying customers.

Thanks again

Jeff and I would like to thank you for taking us out and crewing this weekend.  We reflected as we drove home about this weekend and really appreciated the time you spent with us.   Just getting to see how you set-up your boat and watching how adjusted things as you watched the graph was great.  Call me anytime you need a hand on the boat or when your down this way.   Thanks again

My name is Michael Keating, Capt. of the Hammer time fishing team and in 2002 I spent several hours fishing with john Milbourne on my boat and his and know he is a very confident and experienced boater and fisherman out on the big lake. He has a good solid head on his shoulders and always seems to be able make the right decisions while out on the water. I would feel very confident to have him on board in event that something happened to me out on the water because I know him well enough to be able to handle things and get me back to shore to safety and due what-ever was necessary to ensure my safety and anyone else in the fishing party.

John and I had met and became friends through our wives. They work together and while doing so discussed our mutual interests in fishing. During the season of 2002  I had the opportunity to spend several days on the lake Michigan with john fishing aboard his 24 foot trophy out of Manistee.

After spending time on the water with John, it is in my opinion that he is extremely skilled and competent in the operation or a water craft on the great lakes. He is very knowledgeable about its operation and capabilities as well as the effects weather and water conditions contribute to its safe operation. Before spending time aboard "second wind" with John I was aware that my safety would be placed primarily in his hands. I would do so again with out hesitation.

In addition to competency and knowledge, John demonstrated courtesy toward operators of other vessels, especially in high traffic areas. To the best of my knowledge and understanding, John adhered at all times to navigational regulations.

Although I have years of fishing  experience  and own a bass boat, I did not have the experience or skills in fishing big waters. I can say that John has been willing to help build my own skill level by showing respect, giving careful instructions, and encouragement when we fish together.

John,
 Scott & I want to thank you again for the fishing trip on Saturday in Lake Erie. Catching Walleye was an experience I will never forget. You did an excellent job with handling the boat, keeping track of the numerous lines, dealing with the other boaters, dealing with a couple of motion sick people, and still having fun! I know we did!!! 
Hope you had a good day on Sunday.  Hope you didn't get caught in the storm out there!! 
Thanks again.

John

I just wanted to say thanks again for taking Bud Miller and I on one of most fun fishing outings ever. Catching an 8 1/2 pound walleye with you was great and all last summer but yesterday I felt like I had hooked a freight train every time we hooked up on a king Salmon. You are truely and pro, have a great attitude, and make it fun! Oh yeah and catching our limit of 10-18 pounders by 9:30 in the morning made for a pretty good day too. If people are not booking you for trips they don't know what they are missing.

THANKS
