Cape Cod Guides

Please support our sponsors who are on this board and offer guide service. I have some opinions on other guides particularly on the cape. So if you need advise or opinions on others who are not listed herein, please contact by e-mail or PM and I will share my thoughts on abilities , personalities and flexibilities.

John, Thank's for the offer to both support our sponsors and also provide some "local" knowledge. I for one, rely on local expertise to best select a guide that "fits" my expectations. Your offer, with no vested interest in the shop/guide/outfitter is invaluable.

Related question:

I guide on Cape Cod, have been for several years. In fact more and more since my dot-com dayjob dried up. I was thinking about becoming a Forum sponsor in order to be able to have a banner. Would that be too weird or would everyone be OK with that?

I hope this does not sound too commercial but have a guide service and I am a forum sponser(and Juro built the website) and I would simply like to say I would be more than happy to have any prospective client give me a call and just discuss what they are looking for in their day on the water. In other words PLEASE feel free to "interview" me.

Thanks,

Juro...you were on the top of my list.... aside from the sponsors there is George Ryan, the guys at Orvis, Harry(Harry is a sponsor)..Tony S. In Orleans, to name a few, Dan Marini and Randy Jones as well. There are also combo shore and boat guys. I will be doing a list and include those I know whom I would recommend. I will keep to PM's and e-mails anyway on specifics. Maturity level is also important apart from the usual knowlege that goes with it. There is one I will not recommend and you can e-mail me on that with reasons. Also.If anyone can share information on some unknown guys who are good...good all around with out other fishing commercial interests please let me know .I want to do a run down and post these after I get more feed back and do an article to submit to some of the Magazine connections I have made this year.

edavids.. as a Sponsor I am glad you have posted and your thoughts are always welcome. I wanted to seek out some who are also not sponsors. There are a lot of articles on the good points and bad points of guides..but I would like to do Cape Cod and search out the cream...not just from my point of view , but from others as well. Cost is also a factor. So it's not just finding the fish but the total experience. Fo example...No guide is worth a $1000 (plus or Minus) and trying to sell things is also a no no in my book...Diversity and flexability are things to consider... things like that should be known BEFORE someone is signed up..So, If anyone on the Forum wants to help me with this I think it would be worth while. Afterall the consumer should participate and we just don't have this type of study. More to come.....Remember , it's just fishing, not some philosophical out of body experience.

Well that was fast..JFbasser just sent me a recommendation. I have asked him to get more info on the guy...but I have not heard about this guide... That;s what i am looking for...so this process should be good. The sponsors will be part of this study and will also be referenced on the Forum. I may even get opinions from the other boards as well. This will help the public, the guides and the Forum.

John...I'm looking for some good olde fashioned New England F.R.S.

Fear...Ridicule...Sarchasm...
And some solid ABUSE early in the morning to set the tone for a long day under a sadomosachistic guide's wing (foot)...

Any suggestions?!

To Juro

Juro,

It would be the ultimate in irony if you were not able to have a banner on the site simply because some Forum members did not want to confuse your role here.

I am all for seeing a Juro banner ad.

-Mike
