Hi Nancy and Mike,
I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how
much my friend Randy and I enjoyed ourselves on our
trip with Mike. We were among a group Mike took on
July 20th for the Grand Slam fishing adventure. We
could not have had a better trip. We were blessed with
awesome weather and an awesome guide. Thanks
Mike you are a fishing master and one hell of a good
guy. Totally professional and not once did you get
frustrated or overwhelmed. I will recommend you to
anyone who is planning on fishing out of Homer. I
have a freezer full of fish and fond memories of our
Thanks again,

Dear Mike,

the saltwater page)
I can't tell you how much we all
appreciated your spirit, as well as the fun
and professional attitude you have. It
made our excursion to Alaska just that
much more enjoyable.
I would give you the highest
recommendation to anyone who is looking
to have a safe,good time, and the best
chances there are of catching the "big

Good luck,best wishes,and thanks again,

My dad, mom, 3 brothers and I were with you last year for a halibut trip. You took us
on a tremendous time. We had so much fun with you and the experience is
unforgettable. I have thought about it every day for the past year. I just wanted to say
thank you again for the trip of a lifetime! If we ever are able to come up again from
Idaho I would have you do our entire trip. I just wanted to say thank you, we had a
great time and talk about your day being the highlight of the trip,

Hey Mike,
Thanks again for the great trip...it was so much fun and I can't wait to do it again. I
attached a few of our pictures for you to see. Everyone is amazed at how much fish
we caught!  Hope everything is going well for you and hopefully we will see you
again soon.

Mike & Nancy,
Thanks for one of the, if not the, most memorable days fishing. I have fished with
many other charter services and none matched your professionalism and enthusiasm
for fishing. Too many times I have been just another guy on a boat, not really getting
what I paid for. Your trip is definitely one for the books. Next time I will bring my wife
so she can see for herself what fishing in Alaska is really like....
Hope to fish with you again.
Tight lines and keep in touch.
If you ever need a deckhand let me know!!
Thanks again...Patrick Severts

Hey Mike,
Just wanted to tell you what a great time we had with you
as our guide for our trip. We all had an amazing time. I
just wanted to let you know that you were by far the best
guide I have ever fished with and I do not say that lightly.
Your professionalism and customer service was
unparalleled. Thanks Mike for such and amazing time.

We wanted to thank Mike and John
deck hand)
again for a phenomenal day of
fishing! Our entire group had an excellent
time and enjoyed your company as much
as we did the fishing! Both your
personalities and your helpfulness were
greatly appreciated. Not to mention the
depth finder, reel counters and rod holders
being a life saver, especially for the girls.
We hope to fish with you again in the future.
Thanks again,

Hello Mike,
I just wanted to say thank you for another
OUTSTANDING day out fishing!! It was totally worth
saving up for a trip on the Arctic Addiction! Fish and
bites all day, nothing more rewarding than to go
home with dead arms and a huge grin on my face!

Take care & Happy Fishing!!!

Mike, Thank you so much for everything- it was a wonderful trip! The girls (Elli 8 yr and
Rachel 12 yr) are still talking about the trip. You have created two new fisherwomen and that
could not have made their daddy happier! Watching Marc's face as he watched his girls fish
was priceless. We will be in touch for future trips.

My Nephew and I booked a combo Halibut / Lingcod trip with Mike and we had a blast! We (and
everyone in our party) caught our limit of Halibut, Lingcod and Rockfish and Yelloweyes (a type of
rockfish). I caught my largest fish ever, a 65 pound lingcod. Mike and his deckhand worked hard
for us. Mike is skilled in finding the fish and keeping us on them. He is very safety conscious and
is  people oriented.    Great job Mike.

Captain Mike,
Best trip we ever had! And hope to have many more with you! Thanks for a wonderful day and a
great experience - Love my fish! Your knowledge and the love you have for fishing shows through so
much and made it a great trip. Even if I hadn't caught a "MONSTER".  It's been a week and I still
haven't stopped smiling. We are ready to go again.
Thanks again and we wish you a wonderful season,
Monica and Darrell

Hi Mike,                                June 15, 2012

I want to thank you for an awesome fishing trip. I could not of
had a better time and will highly recommend you to anyone
who wants to catch lots of fish and have a good time. You
were very professional and had a very clean and organized
boat. I was also very impressed with Ethan he seemed to be
a good fisherman and an excellent hand with a fillet knife.
Thanks again and hope to get a chance to go again.

I wanted to thank you again for an AMAZING
time! My dad and I had a blast, and I still can’t
stop thinking about the fish I caught! I was
able to capture some very good video of the
Orcha whales that were out and about while
we were on the water, and I wanted to post
them to Youtube referencing Manns Charter
Thanks again for everything Mike, I can
promise you will be seeing us again; sooner
rather than later… I hope.

Thanks for being such a great host and guide for Hank and me during our fishing trip to Alaska.
I have never had a better experience fishing - anywhere.  
You have set the standard by which all of my future fishing adventures will be measured - and I doubt that
anyone (other than maybe you) will ever be able to raise the bar.
We had other successful days of fishing while in Alaska, but none more successful and none nearly as
I look forward to future fishing trips with you.  I'm already thinking about a trip in 2014 and if you are still in the
business, you will be the first person I will call.
I'd also like to commend Ethan (deck hand) and Brian at Homer Fish Processing.  Both were outstanding!
Thanks again,
