Default Free Guided Bay Trip Tomorrow

I have a rescheduled trip tomorrow, and I'm by myself. I've already paid for the trip, if anyone wants to go, I know it's last minute, weather is iffy, but we're going to try it anyway. Just don't have that many free days in my schedule. Launching out of Sargent around 5:30. Pm me if you're interested. Wading chunking lures.

I'd be on this if I weren't headed to Sonora in the morning.

He shouldn't be guiding because he canceled 3 times on you because of weather? Instead of taking your money and taking you anyway knowing you probably wouldn't do good, he let you reschedule. Not sure what the problem is. You're the only negative I've ever seen of Hollis.

What a very nice offer Phillip.

I have fished with Hollis and would not do it again. I am sure others have had great dealings with him, my experience was a little different I guess.

No, they went I've seen pics on Facebook. I've been out with Hollis, and he has canceled on me. If the weather is bad and he doesn't think he will put you on the fish he will reschedule. He wants you to have the best odds to catch fish. If you don't catch any fish, you probably won't book him again.

Default Free Guided Bay Trip Tomorrow

We went and caught some fish, checked out a few spots and got rained on. We were back early with a limits of reds. Hollis is a great guide and a friend of mine. I fish with him often, yes, he will reschedule some trips due to weather. I'd rather that than try to go out and grind it out. I have my own boat, and fish a bunch by myself, and I'll skip fishing too if the weather isn't good. It's aggravating when I try to offer up something at my cost, and a guy can't keep his mouth shut. I wasn't asking for reviews or input. Simply offering up a guided trip at no cost. Anyway, next time I'll just keep it to myself.

Don't keep it to yourself, I nearly talked myself into the 3hr drive. Next time I won't pass up a great offer/opportunity.

I hope you don't think I was dogging on Hollis in my post. In my opinion, he is one of, if not the best guide for east Matagorda. The point I was trying to make that he will reschedule if he doesn't think the chances of catching fish is good. He wants you to book with him again and for that to happen he knows you have to catch fish. Sorry if you took my comment differently.
