FATHER DAUGHTER DAY! We have Doyle and Margaret today Monday March 23rd using live thread fin shad!

Marc and Amy, First, I want to thank Marc for a great day.  He did exactly what I wanted, and I did not have to say anything.  He took Margaret under his wing and I am sure she learned a lot from him.  So much so, I think she caught more bass than I did.  Not only did he teach her new things, he reinforced things I have been trying to teach here: some of which Marc taught me.  We had a wonderful day.  Thanks to both of you for a great day. Doyle

One of Margaret's Beautiful Bass Monday March 23rd

Paul, Christian and Carrie Sat. March 21st beautiful bass!

Dear Amy and Marc,
Carrie, Christian and I want to thank you for yet another amazing trip with the Ojai Angler!  That was two of the most exciting hours of fishing I have ever experienced in my life!  Every cast for two hours we were either catching a bass or getting bit and missing the fish!  Unbelievable, and all of the fish were big!  We cant wait for our next trip in two weeks.  Fourteen bass in two hours is phenomenal fishing!!  Having to release three pounders out of the livewell before pictures because you are running out of room for the five pounders coming over the side is something most people never experience!!

Amy, your patience and professionalism in our scheduling is always appreciated.  Marc, your guidance and expertise continues to amaze me! You always put us on the fish.  Your patience and professionalism is second to none in the fishing world.  Thank you for providing such wonderful service to our family and clients that we bring out with you.  You will see us for many years to come!  I will continue to spread the word that the only way to fish Lake Casitas is with the Ojai Angler!!
Thank you again.  Warm Regards, Paul

Amy and Marc,  My brother and I have been fishing together for nearly fifty years and our morning with Marc was one of the best outings we've ever had.   The fishing was great and Marc is certainly an expert but more importantly, Marc's easy manner and friendly instruction made us feel like we were fishing with an old friend.  Thanks so much for the great day and I look forward to putting all that Marc taught me to work as soon as I can get to the lake again! Steve
