"For over 20 years I have fished hard for striped bass, on Smith Mountain Lake and I will be the first to tell you that when it comes to fishing some days are better than others. I will assure you that every day I will give it 100%."

"This past Thursday on July 26th I went out with Capt. Wendell along with my dad, uncle, and cousin and I had one of if not the best fishing experiences of my life. During our time out we caught about 25-30 fish and had a blast doing so. Capt. Wendell is very easy to get along with and nows what he's doing, it was a very exciting and thrilling experience. "

"I along with 3 people went on a trip recently with Capt. Wendell. I've been on numerous guided fishing trips from Texas to Key West, and this was one of the best yet. Capt. Wendell is not only easy going and easy to work with, but he PUTS YOU ON THE FISH! Between the 4 of us, in 3 hours we caught over 25 fish. We were catching fish while the 3 boats around us sat catching nothing. Definitely recommend it, we will be back again."

- Jordan Harrell
