    I was at my favorite SD store Squid.... and picked up a card that might help single fishers and out of town travelers/fishers. As if in answer to the endless discussions about tipping and service Big Fish Transport now says they will handle gear receiving and storage, as well as assisting your arrival and loading to the boat.
    Anyone have any experience with these folks?

    He has always handled gear receiving and meeting you at the airport and the dock on the the day the boat returns. He also cleans and services reels and he now yes he does offer insured gear storage. I have used his service multiple times and could think of no other way of doing it now. Anyone have specific question feel free to pm me and we can talk on the phone if you would like.

    A couple of the guys from my 10 day on the Excel use him and swear by him. That would be good enough for me!

    Mike is first a gentleman and a fisherman. From the service side, he is now a part of my trips from start to finish. Removes all drama from the adventure. As noted, he now does reel servicing, so I simply left my reels that needed service with him post trip, he returned them ready to fight again. I will be sending gear his way in mid June for an upcoming 7 day on the RP.

    Have used Mike's service for a couple of years now and I have nothing but praise! Makes travelling from out of state a breeze. His reel service is great and fairly priced.

    Mike is the bomb . No worries about your gear and he picks you up from the airport and drops you at the landing . In my case on Thanksgiving every year and its usually around dinner time . Ive been with him since he started this service and never a complaint . I always urge people flying in to use Mikes service . It saves lots of time and energy .

    I have lost count of the number of times Mike has called me and said "hey there's a problem with your gear, or your reel." One time he called me and let me know two rods got rings knocked off the guides. He ran my gear around getting them fixed or fixing them himself. You really can forget all the worrying if you use his service because he does the worrying for you. I can't say enough good things about him personally or his service.
