Hi Capt. Smitty,
Just wanted to again thank you and Zack for a great day of fishing last Friday. You guys took a bunch of rookies and made us look good. It was fun listening to the stories at the barbeque we had Friday night when we got back. It's amazing that those fish grow so quickly after they're caught. I think the biggest one is now almost 40 pounds!
Anyway, thanks again for a great day, and we WILL see you again.
In case no one told you, THANK YOU for your support of our right to fish. Yourself, Bob Inglis and Bobby Franko have really made an important contribution in protecting our right to fish.
Captain, I really appreciate the fact that you
take such an active interest
and role in these conservation issues. You are one of probably very few that
truly try to balance sport fishing with conservation and make a difference
for our generations to come, like my kids.
I look forward to seeing you again on April 2 opening day. My Dad is flying
in from Montreal to join me!

Captain, just wanted to say thanks for the fantastic fishing day me and Doug
had on Sunday. I hope you bought more of those green flashers, they were
pretty hot! All in all, I caught 3 salmon on that rig and handed off another
8 fish to others including that 25lb striper! I think it was the best ocean
fishing I have ever done.
September 3 2003 Whale Watching
Our whale watching trip was one of the largest highlights of our trip to San Francisco. Thanks for letting us take the charter trip on 8/22/2003. We will recommend you to any of our friends that are contemplating a trip to that region. Here are a few of the pictures that we took from the boat.
These include shots of the whales with a small fluke, an arched whale, whale with a spout, dolphins, and shots of the sea turtle.
Once again thanks.

Captain Smitty and deck hand Heather made our
trip awesome. It was my son's 13th. birthday wish to go deep sea fishing, he
even turned down a trip to hawaii..(whew...) anyhow, Blake was ecstatic about
the trip the whole time. Once the day got here he started to get real nervous...
That all changed when we arrived at the riptide and met our crew. Blake caught
the first fish this day and he was the youngest on deck, way to go son! Anyhow,
many many many thanks to cap'n smitty and Heather.. You two are awesome, the pix
that were taken are awesome, hope to see them on here soon. We will be back,
maybe in July for the rock cod fishing..
Thank you again, and God bless you all!
Devoted passenger forever,
Rebecca English and Blake :>)

Just a quick email to say "Thanks". My wife and I went whale watching with you on Sunday, February 9/03 at 1:00 pm. Even though the trip was scheduled to go from about 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm - you basically stayed out until you found us some whales - thanks!

I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic trip on Sunday. My daughter and I had a great time, and we can't ended up with about 20lbs of smoked salmon. We're both looking forward to going rockfishing with your soon!

Hi Captain Smitty, Got the pics
developed and many are good. I will mail and
Email copies asap. You and Evan were a great team and I really enjoyed fishing
with you both. Maybe we can go after salmon or Tuna some day. Let me know when
you are doing good and I'll try to get back. Once again thank you for a fun
day and for showing me some of the unique species that are in your area.
Best Regards-Tell Evan I will send some pics to his address as well.
Thanks again for a great salmon fishing trip today. That was not only the biggest fish I have ever caught, but also the most exciting fish that I have caught in many years. It ranks with my first fish caught near Aspen Colorado immediately after World War 2.

Just got to our hotel after a great memory maker on board the Riptide. The day could not have gone better. Smooth water, great company and a crew that catered to our every need. At one point it seemed the fish were jumping into the boat on their own. Our only hope was to retreat to the cabin and wait for the frenzy to stop. Three generations of the Allured family now have a huge memory of how good it can be to be together for a short while with the only agenda being to catch fish. You are to be thanked and blessed many years for what you did on this single day.
Thanks so much for giving us this day.

of San Francisco fishing trip aboard the Riptide, I would like to thank you for a
wonderful time. Even those who did not catch anything had a very enjoyable time. You and
your deckhand couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable. we all thank you very much
and hope to have another fishing trip sometime soon. We will be writing about our great
trip in our next newsletter and singing your praises to the rest of the association who
were not fortunate enough to have been with us." Ron Frediani, Executive
Director of PHCC San Francisco.

Capt. Smitty and crew, Dave, worked hard for the fish and were very patient with all of us tuna newbies. I would definitely recommend going out on the "RIPTIDE" for albacore if you can. They may not have the frills of some boats, but it's a lot less crowded and a hell a lot more friendly than any partyboat I've been on. - Tim Howard
