Michelle,
I want to thank you for all your help. I now understand the word "Minnesota Nice". We took your advice and stayed at Breezy Point Resort and then celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Antlers like you suggested. My wife loved it. We fished with John and Butch. They were excellent. Thank you.

John,
I want to tell you how grateful we are for recommending Todd to us. He was excellent fishing guide. My grandchildren feel in love with him. He told everyone we were going to catch fish and we did. I wasn't expecting him to be so patient. He took the time to show the kids how to clean fish after the trip. Todd even gave my wife some cooking tips. We were planning to go out to eat that night but everyone wanted a fish fry instead. It was great fishing trip.

John,
I wanted to thank you and your guides for an outstanding fishing outing this last summer. Put us down for next summer on the second Monday in August. We will be staying at Breezy again. I think we will need 10 boats. I will let you know for sure a few weeks prior. You guys were the talk of the evening when we did our team building seminar on Wednesday. Thanks for everything.

John,
Here's a clipping of Robbie's big fish story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. They did a nice article. Robbie talked about the fishing pole he got from his grandpa, the 14 lb. northern he caught with you, how he insisted on using the pole because his grandpa told him it was lucky. Thanks for taking the time to rig up his birthday present and help him catch that big fish. He has the picture in his bedroom.

John,
Thanks for the great trip. My Dad and little brother loved it. It was awesome when WCC0 interviewed us on the lake. We watched their Minnesota walleye opener segment last night. I didn't realize how well we did until after I saw the story. We had fourteen walleyes and almost all the other boats they interviewed had only one, two, or none. I laughed when they asked Ryan what his secret was and he said, "It's easy. Just reel when the rod bends." I taped it for you if you didn't see it. See you soon.

John,
Thanks for the great day of fishing. You and Butch did an outstanding job. I wasn't expecting to catch many walleye but you guys proved us wrong. It was Wallien's first time fishing. I don't think he realized how tough walleye fishing can be, at least for me, on a flat calm sunny day in the middle of July. I never expected to limit out in walleyes for two boats. Tell Butch I won't question his judgment next time. Thanks

Dear Michelle,
Thank you for finding us a guide at the last minute. We really appreciated it. Nate was a very nice young man. He did a wonderful job. I am sorry you had to make so many calls for us. Thank you for helping us. I will remember to book earlier next year. Tell John that Bryan and Patty said hello. See you next year.

John & Michelle,
Thanks for another enjoyable trip to Minnesota. We enjoyed seeing you at Antlers on Wednesday night. I can't believe how tall Jacob has gotten. I was shocked when he said he was almost six foot six. He was so little when we first started fishing with John. I still remember the year Kayla was born. She has turned onto such a beautiful young lady. Tell Tyler we said hi. You have such a lovely family. P.S. Steve and I figured it out. We have now been fishing eighteen years with John. Please put us down for the third Tuesday in August for next year.

John,
We now have a new screen saver. It is the picture of Charlie's big walleye. Thanks for the wonderful trip. Charlie can't stop talking about it. He wears the cap you gave him almost every day. Thank you for sending to us with his picture. We told Charlie we would go fishing again next year if he does well in school. We look forward to fishing with you again.

Michelle,
please put us on the book for two full days next year. We would like the Monday and Wednesday, the week after the fourth. Thank you for helping us plan our trip this year. Your suggestions and advice were very helpful. I never realized how beautiful Minnesota was in the summer. It was 115 degrees in Phoenix yesterday. I am missing Minnesota already.

To Brainerd Guide Service,
I want to let you know that Todd did an excellent job for us on our recent fishing outing. He was exactly the type of fishing guide we were hoping to get when we came to Minnesota. He made us laugh, we caught fish, it was a great experience.
