I went on a trip to Monticello with Jason on Monday. We had an awesome time. We boated about 40 fish and would have had a couple more, but I can't fish, lol.

Some of these were dinks, but several were chunks. We had 3 that went over 5lbs and several in the 3-4 range. Catching fish was great, but the best thing about the trip was Jason's effort. It's refreshing to have a guide that actually cares about a client catching fish. I've been on trips where the guides were fishing hard and you're just along for the ride using the back deck.

With Jason, If I got hung up or broke something off, he would hand me another rod and tell me to fish, while he dealt with the mess. Within a few cast, he'd have the new rod all rigged up and ready to go. That was an important for me being that I don't get many days to get out and fish. Another thing that I really liked about Jason was instead of fishing the entire time, he would get prepared for the next stop. As we changed areas, he would get us rigged up while I fished the last few minutes at each stop. When we got to the new stop, we dropped the TM and starting fishing.

We were scheduled to end at 4:30 or so, but I said, let me make a few more casts and we'll get out of here. He said, don't worry about it.....we have plenty of time. At 5p, we were still fishing. At about 5:15p, he took me to another spot and said, let's make 3 casts before we leave. On the last cast, I landed probably our largest fish, somewhere between 5-6lbs. The other guides I've used are hauling tail to the ramp right at quiting time. But with Jason it was all about the customer service and I really appreciated all his efforts.

Jason, thanks for a great trip.....gotta love that 141 brother.....

I've been fishing with Jason several times and always have had a great time. He's a great guide and I always enjoy his company.

I booked a trip with Jason just the other day. I have met him once at Monticello, very personable and courteous individual. That's why I decided to use him for an upcoming Fork trip with a customer of mine. And of course, I've heard the cat can flat out find the fish!! Congrats on a good day of fishing, madermu.

Jason is a top notch guide, who does alot more than just guiding on a trip. The extra effort which you describe above is rare these days from most guides. That's what separates them...

Theres not a better option to take a customer out with. Most likely you guys are going to catch them, and if the fish just aren't biting your customers will still love being out with Jason and they'll learn a bunch. I look forward to the day my son is old enough to go out with us.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. It really means a lot. I've been very blessed to fish with you guys. Tom, I'll be looking forward to that trip in February. The big girls will be on the prowl. And, one of these days maybe I can get Mike Keenan and Jersey Dan in the boat with me for the day too! I know you guys can catch 'em!

Madermu, I bet that won't be the last 141 that you have in your box!!! smile

Thanks again,
Jason

Jason,
you went a long way with me one day getting me advice on fork a couple of years ago without knowing who I was. I will get a trip booked one day with you. Mike Rice keeps wanting me to split a trip with you. I would like to try one day during the summer. I need help on deep water stuff, it is a weakness.
