Hi Ray! Thanks again for the charter with the kids. They had a blast and we all got striper to take home. Thought this might be a good addition to your site ! See you next year Lisa Jarnot on behalf of your Charter of mike, mike, josh, Zack, and Samm!
We had a great time, I hope your second trip was successful also. You were right about the sea bass. next time we would like to get some more of those. Very tasty-
Thanks for a great day Ray!! My boys and I had a lot of fun.
Some highlights attached. will probably have to send a couple at a time because of the file size.
Thanks again for the great trip...here is a photo or two of the stripers and one of the doubles!

Hey Ray, how you doing? Just wanted to send you a couple pictures from some
of our bass trips this past summer. Once again you put us on some quality

you truly are the best in the business! Hope all is well, and we'll see you
again next summer!
2012 Charter Fishing Testimonials
Ray, Thanks for a great trip! A fun and wonderful time was had by all. Everyones already talking about next year and how they only want to book a trip with you. You are a fun guide and a true professional at what you do. Thank you again and see you next year, maybe for the tuna this time.

Ray, Pics of our trip attached. Thanks again for a great time. Morrell's cooked everything great so thanks for that recommendation as well. We will certainly recommend you to anyone heading out to the Cape and looking to charter a trip.
Best, Steve Jamieson
Captain Ray, Here are a couple of pictures of my dad and me from last Monday! Thanks again for a great trip!
Thanks for taking such great care of the messed up situation I handed you. My buddy and his sons had the time of their lives !! Count me in as your #1 referral and I didn't even get to go on the trip. Don't catch this bug I'm still down and out but very slowly getting better.
Thanks again, Brian
Ray, here are some pictures for your website. Thanks for a great day. I have been spreading your name around the red jacket resort for a great fishing trip. Old Charlie had a great time as well as my family. I am thinking of booking a Tuna trip with you, I will round up a couple of my friends. Let me know if you need any help trimming the deer herd in new York. I give free lessons...
Hey Ray, how's it going? Hope you had a good tuna season. Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a couple of awesome fishing trips this past summer. To catch ten tuna in one day was just unbelievable! We were sure busy that day, huh? Then to catch ALL those stripers two days later, that was incredible! The only problem is, how are we going to top that next year?
But then I say that every time, and somehow you manage to outdo yourself.
Anyway, thanks again, and we'll see you next year.
Ray, Again, I would like to thank you for a successful "Hunt" for the Stripers. As always, we had a blast. We WILL be back in 2013. Maybe 2 trips then. Will be in touch
Ray, thanks for everything yesterday, we had a great time. You worked your ass off and I appreciate it! Good luck with the tuna, hope you have a good fall season.
2011 Charter Fishing Testimonials
Capt. Ray, Thanks again for another successful cod jigging adventure. A good time was had by all as usual. The fish fry was a success for the 28 in attendance. We had cod chowder and more fried fish the next two days. We look forward to fishing with you again.
Best Regards Ken Maher
Thank you for the most memorable day of fishing my family has ever experienced. You made it truly wonderful and we look forward to fishing for tuna in August.
Best Regards, Lillian, John, Mary, Dana and Melody
Ray, it was a great time again. Thanks for all that you did for us. Hope to be back in a year or two. Please let me know about the t-shirt (XXL) I can do some advertising here for you with it.
Ray, how are things? We are wondering how many big tunas you brought in? Enclosed are two of our favourite pictures. Thanks for the awesome trip, take care.
Hi Ray, Thanks again for the great trip this past Thursday! It was a great time! When you get a chance, could you please send me that group photo you took on your camera?
Hey Ray! Here are a few pictures from our trip Friday afternoon. Thank you for the awesome time (as always).....can't wait for the 29th to do it all again :)
Hey Ray! I just wanted to say thank you for an incredible trip. We all had a great time. Derek and Lisa were thrilled because this was their first fishing excursion. I don't think that we could have had a better trip. Derek and Lisa would like to know your address because they want to ship you some homemade brew. We are all looking forward to next year. When we figure out our weeks for next summer I will email you to book our trip. Take care and talk to you soon.
Hello Ray, I wanted to send you a note of appreciation for our fishing excursion on Sunday, May 22nd. It was a wonderful experience and I sincerely appreciate the consideration you paid to Mom. You made the day even more enjoyable by sharing Glenn and his wonderful cooking with us. The meal was a delight and you making the time to share it with us really meant something to us, especially Mom. I can speak for the entire group that we are looking forward to August 13th with great anticipation. In the meantime, cheers!

Hello Captain Ray!
We just returned home from our vacation and we wanted to say thank you again for taking us out striper fishing. It was the highlight of our vacation! We truly appreciate all the hard work you did on our trip to ensure a positive fishing experience. We had a short period of time when we were feeling a little green, but we loved every minute of it. We want to commend you on the fantastic job you do on operating your vessel solo. We plan on booking a trip with you next year. Everyone loved the fillets! Stay well and see you next year.
Kevin, Kris and Shannon Murphy

How goes it? Hope all is well… I'm writing to see if you've gotten the photo loaded and if so could send a copy my way. I've attached one of the photo's from that day just in case you don't recall what any of us look like. I'd also like to thank you for an amazing trip. I'll be sure to call you nice and early next season to schedule my new annual trip. Appreciate the entire experience Capt.
Just a short note to thank you again for turning what could have been a no fish event into a fun fishing trip, in spite of the waves. Gloria and I had a great time and catching that 30 pounder was the highlight of my year. We will do it again this year, but hopefully the wind will cooperate the next time we go out.
Regards, Don & Gloria Munroe
Here is a couple of pictures from our September fishing trip. I know you update your webpage photos in February. Thanks for a great trip.
Thanks, Tim Holahan
How's the tuna season? Just wanted to send you some pictures from a couple of our bass trips this past summer, thank you again for some of the best fishing we ever had! I still can't get over not only the number of fish, but the quality. Never before have I caught so many BIG stripers. It was awsome! If there ever was a master at his craft, it's you. But it seems I say that everytime. How 'bout sending me some pictures from your tuna fishing? And one more thing...if you have any left, save me a "Lyndsy Liz" shirt. We'll definitely come back next summer!
Thanks again, Steve Hampton
Dear Captain Ray,
I wanted to thank you again for taking my family out to leave my dad's ashes in the sound. My mother was just delighted that you suggested choosing a spot that we can locate on the map. You were very thoughtful and kind and it brought nice "closure" for us. He was not a fan of hoopla so he would have been pleased at the gorgeous day and the simplicity of the trip...and the fact that we didn't lose my 84 year old mama overboard in the swells. :-) So thanks!
It's Glenn Lombardini, Joe Camgemis nephew. I just wanted to say thanks again for yesterday. Even though we didn't catch any tuna, but what are you going to do there is always next time. Which I hope by the way is asap, I am going to talk my dad into going before the nice weather is gone. Thanks for everything yesterday, I will definitely be using you again as a charter and suggesting you to others. Take it easy, and catch some big ones.
Thank you for taking us out for an enjoyable fishing trip. We all had a wonderful time. Also thank you for sharing your fishing skills with us as most of us are beginners. I have never been to a fishing boat which was kept as clean as yours. We will definitely meet again in the near future.
2009 Charter Fishing Testimonials
I can't thank you enough for a great day of fishing with my 3 children. Your professionalism and commitment to teach proper fishing technique as well as environmental conservation is unsurpassed. Growing up on Cape Cod was always a cherished experience and giving that same experience to my kids, who live in Toronto, Canada was extremely special. The joy on their faces when landing the big stripers and the picture will be a lasting memory and we hope to make it an annual event !!! Thanks again and enjoy the photos. I am biased but I think my Katie and Gillian would make a great brochure or website photo !
Thanks again, Chris Terrio - D-Y Class of 82'
Thanks for the great fishing! If the first time wasn't enough, we had to go twice! Great fishing with a captain who knows how to get it done! We ALL caught the BIGGEST fish of our lives. Cannot wait to do it again. I hear John already booked a Tuna trip for Labor Day. Wish I could be there. See you soon!

Thank you again for a great day on the water yesterday. We all had a great time and the fishing was excellent. You are very good at what you do and helped us all to enjoy the day even more. It is a lot of fun for all of us and it was also a great day to show my clients.
Hi Captain Ray! We made it back from the cape after eating more tuna than I could ever imagine - rest assured we still have tons left. Here are some pics from our trip. Thanks again - we had a great time, as you may have noticed. Between downing beers and watching them STRUGGLE to get a fish in, it was a memorable trip...we're coming back next year so I can get a chance to show them how it's done! Hope you're well!
Your 2010 First Mate,
How's it going? Here's a picture from our bass trip on 7-9-09. I know the
weather looks cold, but the striper action was HOT! Good job. Thanks for
yet another great day! I look forward to our next outing. Also, those shark
steaks were excellent. Everybody raved about them!
Thanks again, Steve Hampton
I just got some pics from last Saturday's trip I wanted to pass along...everyone had a great time and I wanted to say thanks again! Those pics of Teresa's fish I landed still amaze me! Hope you have a great season...
Here are the enclosed pictures of our July trip, we all had a great time, we definitely recommend you to all of our fishing friends. Can't wait to see you on Tuesday, hope we catch some big tunas! Once again as a reminder, in the picture is my daughter Jordan, her friend Cellena, and of course my brother-in-law Darryl.
2008 Charter Fishing Testimonials
It has been almost four months since our tuna trip in August but I just wanted to thank you for another great charter. Two years in a row you gave us a "trip we'll remember for a lifetime". I'm not sure what was better, the tuna fishing or the whales, but the whole day was an incredible adventure. We all look at the pictures and video often and when we show them to friends and family they just can't believe it.
We hope you and your familly have a great Holiday Season and we look forward to another great charter next year.
Tiff, Matt, Nathan, Tommy, and Jannine
HI Captain Ray
Just wanted to give you a line and say my nephews Luis, Steven, Oscar and Alex and I-and Shaina really enjoyed the bass fishing on Sunday July 20. Non-stop action for 4 hours has everyone still talking. I can tell you that nobody other than me had ever caught fish of that size---and for me its not typical from the surf.
Looking forward to future trips to Bass River and will be contacting you in advance for sure.
Thanks for a great time on Tuesday. This is a picture from last year. We will send you the new pictures soon. Thanks again. See you next year.
Not sure if you remember me, but my name is Tom. I was on your charter on Saturday 07/19/08 with my four friends for my bachelor party. Steve booked the trip with you. Just wanted to say thank you again and it was a blast. We will definitely be back soon to do it again and hopefully try a shark charter in the future. I was wondering if you could do me a favor and email me the pictures that we took of our trip using your camera? There was probably about 5 or 6 of them including the one of Steve and his 44" monster.
Thanks for the great time! Joe, Dave, Mike and I had fun, next time maybe mike will stay dry. When you get a chance can you e-mail me the pic you took.
Gary, hope to see you in september.
Dear Captain Ray,
A debt of gratitude for a most incredible fishing trip. My Swedish cousins will be talking about the fish they caught for years to come! I did not tell them much about what to expect which made the trip all the better. When my Brother who canceled coming with us saw the pictures..he ate his hat! You surely know your stuff and your first mate Greg was great helping us! Tomas and Marcus are hoping to get back to the Massachusetts in a few years. Please stay around! Again, many thanks!
Dennis, Joe, Thomas & Marcus
Thanks Captain Ray,
We all had a wonderful time and are looking forward to doing it again. You most definately have repeat customers. Once again thankyou for the great fishing and we will see you soon.
I found a good picture of us on the striper trip. I know the weather didn't cooperate for the tuna, but the striper action made up for it! Great time!
Thanks again, and look forward to our fall tuna trip.
Wanted to thank you again for the fishing experience. You will be seeing us again in a year or so.
Thank you so much for the wonderful pictures you took while out fishing... hopefully we can go out with you again this season!
Patty and I had a spectacular time fishing with you this past October. Also a year prior to that we had a spectacular experience when I went out with you with my two brothers-in-law Jack and Patrick.
You are a great Captain !
I am certain we will be calling you again this year to book another trip.

Thanks for a great tuna fishing trip. As advertised they do give quite the fight! I really appreciate the extra hours you gave us. As a result, we had quite the successful trip. Seeing all the whales, dolphins, and birds was also a great experience. I will be contacting you soon to book a trip for next year. I'm looking forward to eating some of the tuna. If you have any good recipes I would appreciate it if you could send them my way. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and good luck with your fishing trips. Please tell Eric that I appreciated his experience and the extra time he gave also.

Ray, What a great day. I was a little skeptical on this whole thing
but you knocked the cover off the ball with our experience. Great fish,
whales all over the place and your passion for tuna combined to make
this a great day. I'm coming back and bringing lot's of friends with
me. Thanks again for making this such a super experience.

We had an absolutely wonderful vacation on the three fishing charters
with you Ray. Of course, catching the huge tuna was the highlight of
the entire trip for John. You made our time very enjoyable. Your knowledge
of where and when to fish were fantastic. We would recommend you to
anyone and will definitely be back again.

Dear Ray, For starters, my family and I had a beautiful day on Nantucket
sound. But then to catch all those bass and bluefish! It was so much
fun and so exciting. You do, however, underestimate yourself. Your recipe
for grilled striped bass was pure perfection and we agreed it tasted
better than lobster! Thanks to both you and Kevin for all of your help
and a really great time. See you next season!

...We had such a fantastic day, really made our holiday. The fish was
absolutely beautiful to eat and had a huge feast that night. Never managed
to cook it on the bbq as it got dark quite early (we did spend hours
in the supermarket buying food to go with it!) and we ended up cooking
it in the oven but it was still amazing!
We have some great memories from that day and I will certainly recommend
you to our friends when they visit - everyone was very jealous when
we got home. We're hoping to do another trip to the Cape in the near
future so if you're still chartering, we'll give you a call and maybe
to do a tuna trip next time!
Hope you are well and that my big fish makes your website!!!!! Lee still
has the hump that I caught the largest! I must be a natural - soon find
out if your training paid off - we're off to Australia at Christmas
to fish for Whiting and Salmon, I'm starting a new trend for women I
Have a fantastic winter and all the best

Hello Ray, Dan from your saturday morning trip(8/20). I just wanted
to thank you again for a great trip. I was a little skeptical at first,
but I was very impressed with the way you led us to the fish. We were
definitely looking for that kind of action. We are considering a September
tuna trip, if not you can count on us being back next summer. And we
will surely recommend you to others.

Hi Ray, Just wanted to say thanks for a great fishing trip last weekend

the Cape but the fishing was the highlight for everyone. Thanks for
your patience and good humor with our group, we're all still laughing
about it. If we ever come back to the Cape, we will definitely sign
