If you have had a
great fishing trip with Big Daddy's Guide Service, let Bryan and
others know about it. Scroll down to the bottom and send us some feedback.
|Hi Bryan -
Thank you for another fantastic fishing trip! We ate the 3
small trout Sunday night, and it was great eating. The big
ones are on the menu for tonight, and I’m sure they won’t
disappoint. We really enjoy our time out on the water with
you, and we’re looking forward to next year.
Kind regards, Steven
|Bryan, as usual it was another trip that
memories are made of. Unless a person just makes the call and
experiences a day on Lake Almanor with you they will not
understand. The rush you get when that Brown hits is unreal!
Of course the whole lake knows when I catch a fish. Yah, we
dealt with some weather but you block that out with the
excitement. If someone is just looking for a boat ride and sit
under the cover they might think twice about going with you.
From start to finish Bryan is working the lake to find fish
and I mean you will cover a lot of area in a day with Bryan.
He knows this lake like no other. Cannot wait for next year.
Thanks again, Mike Piper- ( Boom Shaka Laka )
Just a short note to let you know how much my daughter,
son, and I enjoyed our day fishing Lake Almanor with you
last Tuesday. It was a wonderful experience and you made
it that way. Of course it wasn't bad that we caught some
quality fish. The large 6+ pounder went on the B-B-Q, and
the smaller ones were fried up in the pan for trout and
eggs the next morning. All were thoroughly enjoyed! The
two 4+ pounders, etc. are going in the smoker. Thanks
again for a unique and wonderful fishing experience!! It
was one of the highlights of the week on the Lake with the
Great day on Bucks with D and Clyde for Mr. Mack. You're
operation is tiptop and thanks for the awesome trip. For your
future customers...any guide can get you on fish, very few
like Bryan can create a total experience. Thanks again!
|Another great trip with Bryan at Lake
Almanor. We spent two days fishing for the big browns and were
not disappointed. Dang, when they hit it is something and the
fight is awesome. While other fair weather fisherman ran when
the wind came up Bryan kept at it and we caught fish. .Fishing
for these Browns was everything we hoped it would be.
Another awesome trip with Big Daddy himself! Brother Mike
Ford and I will be back for years to come. Thanks Bryan,
Mike Piper, Grass Valley, Ca.
Great trip on Lake Almanor, enjoyed the fishing and enjoyed
the company. Bryan has a great sense of humor but you have to
pay attention. Joe and I were only with you a day but you
taught us a lot on how to fish Almanor. We will come back
next year for a refresher lesson.
Thanks for an enjoyable day.

|Eagle Lake. The sunrise and sun sets are
second to none. If you are just looking for a boat ride and
get tired of reeling fish easily do not go fishing with Bryan.
He has the tricks for keeping fish coming to the boat. What a
great memory he made for myself and two sons. They cannot wait
to go again! Bryan is a Fish Whisperer and you will not regret
spending a day fishing with him!

|Hey Bryan, the Kinghams had an absolute blast
fishing with you last week, we couldn't stop talking about how
great the experience was. We got into some huge fish and had
a great time doing it. You have a great way with your
clients, an easy manner that really translates well, even at
slow fishing times you kept things interesting. You
remembered everyone's name, I don't think you ever called
anyone the wrong name not even once! That's pretty
impressive. You set the bar high for future annual Kingham
men fishing expeditions!
Both me and my dad wanted to thank you for an awesome
time fishing and being great company in the boat. The fish
might not have been biting as well as you hoped but you were
a great guy to talk to and an excellent spokesmen for the
area. You knew your stuff and sold us on fishing the whole
norther lake region alot more. It felt like we were fishing
with an old fishing buddy and after about 10 seconds we both
knew we were in good hands and that you were the kind of
guide and friend that a person could not only trust but talk
to easily and openly. Appreciate the great time and the
ability for me and my dad to add some great memories.
We caught some beautiful fish and they not only were fun to
catch but even better to eat. We both plan on booking an
eagle lake trip with you and you'll definitely hear from us
on getting some steaks. Once again thank you and please stay
Dan Wildeman Livermore, CA
Thanks for a great day of fishing. Your fishing expertise and
knowledge of Lake Almanor made it possible for a super novice
like me to catch fish.
|Bryan: Thanks for the introduction to fishing
Eagle Lake. Your knowledge of the area, the expertise of where
to go, type of bait to use, the quality of your equipment and
boat made it very enjoyable and easy for the three of us to
get our limits for our two days of fishing. Will definitely
book again with you and look forward to catching the browns at
Lake Almanor in March.
LOVE the reports and LOVE fishing with you!!
Limits every lake, every time (we do appreciate how hard you
try for us and stay out there to achieve this).
Can't wait for Buck's post-Mother's day next year with you.
Laurie & Robert Brenner
|Bryan, thanks for an awesome day. Our first
Mack trip but it will not be our last. I think next year we
will do Almanor as well.
Orange Cove Ca.
Thanks again for the awesome time last weekend. We learned a
lot and had a blast. Definitely looking forward to our next
time out with you (Almanor maybe?)
Thanks for a good two days of
fishing, Josh and I had a great time, and having Josh catch
the 25 LB Mack was just the icing on the cake. Take care, and
have a great summer,
Amazing guiding job with the right MOJO for the 106 pound
combined weight and 8 for 11 Mackinaw on Mother's Day weekend
2009. Were on target for 2010. By the way smoked Mackinaw with
lemon pepper hit the spot. Will be trying your beef soon.

Thanks for the morning of fishing on
Bucks Lake. Kimber and Alex made memories today that will stay
with them forever!
Just wanted to say THANK YOU
for the great fishing trip! ...........my folks really
enjoyed themselves (so did Ed and I) !! As you can
see, my dad really can't use his own boat anymore and he
really misses it. This was a good chance for him to relax
and remember. If all goes well, we'd like to book Lake Davis
with you again next May.
Ed and I are talking about
possibly booking an Eagle Lake trip with you this
Again, thanks for the great
time! You are the best guide we've had in California
BY FAR !!
Just wanted to let you know that
Julie and I had a great time. If we ever get a chance to do it
again we will give you a call!

My wife and I were just talking about the
great time we had in June at Bucks Lake. Fishin' with you was
so much fun and learned a great deal! And the big trout lunch,
well we never could stop eating them!
We most definitely would like to go with you
again! We're looking at a trip maybe late May to Early June at
possibly Lake Almanor! Be in touch soon!!
Thanks for another great trip, see
you again soon.

Thanks for the great fishing trip on Eagle Lake last week.
Your a great guide and I learned a lot. I also appreciate you
letting me know how things were in the following two days on
the lake. I will definitely recommend you for a guide! I have
been with a few guides before, and you were the best! I
appreciate all your work-
Want to say thanks soooooo
much for the wonderful fishing trip.
Keep up the great work. I
will be in touch soon to schedule a trip to Eagle Lake in
October. Here are a few pictures.
Thanks again for the great fishing trip! You
asked me to remind you to send me the pix of the Mack.
Great times; see you next year! Paul
Elk Grove CA
Hey I just wanted to drop a note to let
you how I felt about the fishing trip on Bucks Lake in June.
As I was driving away along the east shore it hit me, "that
was a fine day of fishing". I remembered pulling up at the
crack of dawn and seeing your boat coming around the point,
the only one on the lake was a beautiful sight. The fact that
we caught so many fish and your equipment worked great and
your boat is comfortable made it a perfect day. The video came
out really good too, so I can relive the action over and over
Anyways, thanks for the good work on the guiding. Hope to see
you again in the future, maybe for an Eagle Lake trip. I would
highly recommend your service to anyone that wants to do some
good fishing in Plumas Co. Take Care.

Thank you so much again for taking me out
on Lake Almanor, it was one of the best days I have ever spent
on the water. Plus you helped me land the biggest Rainbows
I’ll probably ever see. My family was more than excited to see
my picture on your web site, but when they heard I made it to
the cover of Western Outdoor News they really lost it, and so
did I. I could never thank you enough for sending that picture
in, as you gave me my 15 seconds of fame. It is really funny
to me to think that I almost didn’t want to go that day
because I had no sleep the night before. Boy was it worth it.
You really know your stuff! I hope someday we can hit up one
of your other lakes together, and maybe I can get on the cover
of People Magazine.
Sincerely, John M. Doerring
Having grown up on Bucks Lake, it has become such a special
and unique spot. I remember fishing Bucks with my
grandfather every summer, but after he passed away so did
the fishing tips and secrets. Since, I have been searching
for someone who truly knows how to fish this lake day in and
out - and Big Daddy has answered the call.
The guide began at 7 am when the
picked us up from our dock. It was a
fisherman's dream boat
with four cannon downriggers
and an autopilot GPS motor.
Bryan's set-up had made fishing so easy and
enjoyable. As the secrets and tips started to spill
out- the fish began to hit. For the next four hours we
had netted nearly thirty five fish. It was
so enjoyable to spend the morning with someone who not only
loved to fish more than myself, but who really knew about
the history of the area and the lake.
