This is the third time we have fished with S.E.Alaska Outdoor Adventures and it will not be our last! Every time we are there we catch our limit of fish without question, we get more and more acquainted with Mike, Shelley, Assam, Paul, Bob and the rest of the FAMILY (literally) and feel more a part of the Family each time we arrive. The fishing is undoubtedly the best we ever have and we go every year on our annual trip. We fish hard and relax just as hard. No pressure from anyone about anything. This is the place that you and your group need to go to experience what Alaska fishing and Hospitality is all about. 100+ pounds of fresh frozen filets each and friendships that we hope will last our lifetime are what these trips are all about. You really have to experience this adventure at least once. Thanks EVERYONE for a most wonderful experience and for all of the memories. The fish ain’t too shabby either.
Shelley! I have been long overdue to write you to tell you what an AWESOME time we had fishing with your outfit! We had a wonderful time. I was very impressed with the entire operation from start to finish. You were very accommodating with our travels plans, were right there to pick us up, had a nice dinner ready, had a car available, put right on top of fish each day, had comfortable homey accommodations, processed all our fish, and dropped us off on our departure day. Your home is beautiful, the staff was so friendly and truly came across as though they enjoyed what they were doing and were happy to have us there. I will be telling all our crew members about your outfit. I hope we weren’t too low key, in bed at 9pm every night…Plan on seeing us again!
Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU!!!! The wives went with the husbands this time and are sooooo glad. The fishing was incredible, a lifetime experience. Asom and Brandon were so professional and did absolutely everything possible to make our fishing trip fun and unforgettable. We caught lots of fish and were “Salmon dancing” all over the boat. At times having all four lines busy. We went on to spend two weeks in Alaska, but nothing begins to compare with the two days spent fishing with you in Sitka. You have a extremely will run fishing service and I would highly recommend it. Thank you so very much
Dear Mike and Shelly, Just a note to express deep gratitude for the wonderful time in Sitka. Your hospitality was phenomenal–what a first class operation. I feel like family to everyone on your staff–what a great crew. I am already counting the days for next year! Regards,
Hi Mike and Shelly, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the fishing experience with S.E. Alaska Outdoor Adventures. The accomodations, Captains and crew were outstanding. Our fishing experiences were at the top of the list. It was especially nice to fish with and talk to the other guys that Al has been bringing up there. I knew Al, Howard, Dee, and Rich from working with them at our Division in Auburn. A great and fun bunch of guys ! I took over 250 photos and will add Perry’s to a disc when I get his. Will send it to Al who will collect others and send you DVD,s so you can give the Captains and Crew copies of all the guys and of Mike’s party. I already smoked 8 fillets and vacuum packed them for my son and friends. Here are some more halibut recipes that you may want to try (you have probably tried them all ). http://www.kasilofseafoods.com/halibut-recipes.htm Arlen Paranto 210 Orchard Ave. So P.O.

Date: Thu, 14 Aug 2008 20:20:12 +0000 My husband, Hub Farres, was just up there, and he came back with the best experience of his whole life, I believe!! (with the possible exception of marrying me!) He had such a great time and loved every minute. He could not say enough about how nice you were, how efficient everything was, and how wonderful Issam and Brando were. It was the ultimate vacation for him. He had a little problem on the way home, the airlines “Misplaced” one box of fish. It was finally delivered yesterday afternoon. When we opened it some of the fish was a bit soft on the edges but still most of it was frozen. So we put it in the freezer and are going to have some tonight. I am going on your website right now to find the recipes he has told me about. Thank you for making his trip so wonderful. He said he never thought he would be too tired of pulling fish in to even move!!! and he said he thinks nothing could EVER top this trip. thank you so much,

|Mike and Shelly,Moochas gracias for the wonderful time that my brother and I spent with you last week. It was Nick’s first time to Alaska and salmon fishing, and he told me that it was an unforgettable experience, especially spending nine hours on a boat withthe “twisted” Paul. Please extend to the entire staff how much all of us appreciated the professionalism and your patented attention to detail. We’re looking forward to coming back next year.Thanks again,Brian.PS, my son Ross wants to know how many times Billy puked.|
|Mike:Just wanted you to know how much we appreciated your outstanding service on our recent trip. Thank you for letting Tyler be a part of the trip, it was a special trip for him. All your staff are very supportive and helpful.Great job! We look forward to next year.Greg Elderkin|
|Mike,I just wanted to thank you for an absolutely fantastic trip. I have never fished in my life, and could not have enjoyed the trip more. You run a totally first class operation and I can not wait until next year when you will see me again.Even though I am exhausted, bruised, and sore, I really don’t care because I had such a good time.Thanks again!Peter Huysing(part of the Ogata group)|
|Mike:All of us are still reveling about the trip we had with you this summer. That is the best fishing any of us ever had, and it will keep us thinking about fishing until next summer.Next year we would like again to schedule again for mid-July…any time from the 10th to the 15/16. We did like the three day trip and would hope you could again accommodate us for this time frame.Thanks again for a wonderful trip. Will look forward to hear from you.Neil|
“Thanks again for a wonderful week. Everything was great as usual. If you don’t know it, the guys think the time spent under your care, as well as Mike’s, is first class. No doubt about it!! You have a great crew. The airline saw fit to let our 3rd box of fish miss the plane so we had to wait a couple of hours to pick it up. My fish had been out of the freezer for 12 hours before I got it home and it was still frozen. Good job!Now about Mike’s birthday; looking at the calendar I realized that it will occur after we have left which is completely unsatisfactory. It seems to me that he will have to reach 40 just a couple of days earlier so we may share in the festivities. Next year, we will arrive on the 2nd and leave on the morning of the 7th. With your agreement I think we should have a party on the 6th complete with bells and whistles. How about it?Thanks for a wonderful time again,”Al Cavaletto
|Dear Shelly and Mike,|
“Thank you so much for taking good care of me on my recent trip to Sitka. Thank you again for the great recipes. We are enjoying the fish. It is always nice to stay at your lovely house.”Bob Faine
“Thanks for a great fishing week. It was outstanding. Also, Mike, thanks for letting us share your “B” day with you. The steak, BBQ salmon and the halibut enchiladas were something to die for. As always it was a wonderful week and I really enjoyed spending time with both of you. Love you guys.”
Dear Shelley and Mike,There are not enough kind words in the dictionary to express my appreciation and gratitude for the time we had in Alaska.The trip delivered at every level- camaraderie, hospitality, fishing, whale watching, you name it.We can’t believe we’ve waited this long to experience such a thing. Thanks to the entire team for the effort on our behalf. The level of professionalism and teamwork was at its highest. I was handing out your business cards by the time I got to the airport.We look forward to coming back, and plan to bring new friends along. Take care, and give our regards, to the entire team.Cheers.Steve Penny
