Hi Monte!  We can’t thank you enough for the great time we had today on your boat. You really made our family day special with our grown sons. The perfect experience to have before our son goes back to his base. We so appreciate the time you took answering all of our questions, showing us how everything works, your humor and bantering with us and the all out effort to get us to the fish. We had so much fun catching trout, salmon and that bass, not to mention that salmon on the last pole in the water as we were preparing to go in. That couldn’t have been any better.  We would not hesitate to recommend Gold Country SportFishing to anyone and everyone.  Thanks again!!  Doug, Lynette, Tyler and Nick

 

Thanks for a great day and all your help with DAD !! Monte is a fabulous fisherman and a heck of a nice guy. If you want to catch some fish HOOK UP with Monte. Thanks again for the TOAD! Jeff Kennedy

Monte, I want to thank you for a fantastic fishing trip at New Hogan  Lake . 14 Stripers was a great catch for the 2 of us, it made a perfect birthday present for my cousin. After a day of fishing with you, it felt like you were a old fishing buddy. I will highly recommend you to all my friends.

 

Thanks Again,

Hi Monte Charlie, Mike and myself want to thank you for a great day on the water last Sunday. We sure learned a lot and appreciate you answering all our questions. Once again your Gold Country Guide service exceeded our expectations.

Looking forward to the next trip!! Mark Sublett

Hi Monte,

Thanks for the great day and helping me introduce my son Max to the love of fishing! You are a skilled and talented fisherman and make what is really a complex task look easy. We had to work the water hard, but you got us our limit. The big king we caught was definitely the highlight of the day! Thanks again for the awesome day and if anyone reading this wants a great day of fishing then book it with Gold Country Sport…you won’t be disappointed!

Hi Monte

I just wanted you to know that Charlie and I learned a lot from you on our fishing trip May 4th. We had a great time learning your Kokanee, King Salmon and trout fishing techniques. Your Gold Country Sport Fishing is a great operation that I would recommend to anyone. Your knowledge of the area lakes is superb and your willingness to share your fishing knowledge with others is inspirational. I really like the recaps of your fishing days you do and it was flattering to see our photos up there. Western Outdoor news even used some of it in their recent Don Pedro report. Good job, and keep up the good fishing.

I also wanted you to know that I caught my first limit of Kokanee last week!! I used some of your techniques and they worked well at Melones. My next challenge is catching Kings with the rolled shad/anchovies technique that I will try this weekend at Don Pedro.

Once the stripers start hitting at New Hogan I think I will book another trip so you can show me the ropes there. Thanks again for the great day on the water!!

Hi Monte,

Just a note to thank you once again for the great outing yesterday. Richard and I both had a great time and appreciated your willingness to share your fishing knowledge. We are planning a return trip to Melones this Friday to test out our new skills! Of course I’ll be making a trip to the sporting good store first!! Expensive fish always tastes better…right?!!? Thanks again,

Hi Monte

I can’t express enough how great our day of fishing with you was.  My Dad thoroughly enjoyed his day.  I especially want to thank you for all of the knowledge you shared with us on fishing for Kokes.  You, your boat and equipment are top notch.  You certainly know  where and how to find and catch the fish.  My dad is already bugging me to book another trip with you.

Thanks again for great experience.

Another super day of fishing today, this time at Melones for early limits of quality Kokanee salmon.  You put Larry and I on the fish early and with several doubles the action couldn’t have been better. Although we observed many other boats trolling in the area, we didn’t see any other fish being netted, but through your thorough understanding of what is required in the way of tackle, lures, scents and frankly how to catch these great fish, we had unparalleled action and fun galore.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends.  Your friendly yet confident manner, your knowledge and skills as a fisherman and guide produce results that have me coming back time and again for more fun and quality fishing experiences.

Monte, I can’t say enough about the hours of fun you have given me and I thank you for sharing what you know, which has enriched my life as an angler.  I look forward to our continued relationship as both my fishing guide and as someone who is a super friend too.

I wanted to again thank you for the great day at Melones.

After seeing your operation first hand, I would not hesitate to recommend you to any of my fishing friends.  You are a true professional, and your equipment and boat are first class.  Your interest in making sure your clients get on fish, are comfortable and have a good time as well is obvious.  Your knowledge of tackle and gear are very apparent to me, and you don’t hesitate to share this information with those who are willing to listen.

Though this was my first trip with you as a guide, rest assured it won’t be my last one.

Continued good luck to you!

Monte,

Wow!!!….. that’s all I can say!!!  Dude that was one hell of a day of Kokanee fishing!!  I am hooked on Kokanee and your tactics!  I tell you what ladies and gentlemen, if you want a  highly professional guide who puts you on top of fish and hooked up quickly, Monte is your man!  I’m predominantly a bass fisherman and I have never really took the time to learn more about downrigging and going after these wonderful fighting, and great tasting fish.  Monte took the time to show my buddy and I the fundamentals, as well as the finer points of this type of fishing.  I really had an opportunity to learn and I look forward to getting out in my boat and trying it out for myself.  Drayton, your the man for bringing me out there bro!  Thanks to both of you!   Semper Fi,

Hi Monte,

We really enjoyed our outing last week. We not only had fun on Don Pedro– we learned a lot about how to catch Kokanee. We were all pretty excited about all three of us catching our limit!  Nice work, thanks for the great day — we look forward to doing it again soon. Regards,

Monte,

Ralph and I sure did enjoy the fishing trip with you. We not only had a great time, But meet a great guy also.

When I got home my wife asked if we got rained out. ” no were done two limits”

This was just not Ralph’s day. He is really a good fisherman. He said “I don’t know about those Kokanee. They make me look bad” that’s funny. Anyway Thanks for the great time Monte and looking forward to seeing the pictures.
