To Steve and Jason (Hula Girl) My brother and I fished with you

Here's some of the pictures mike (my new husband :) ) took when
we went out fishing for rockfish and ling cod on 9-8-2010. (The
last picture is my favorite.) You guys were awesome! We had so much
fun! We want to try to go again next summer and were going to bring
a couple friends with us. hope you enjoy the pictures!!! let us
know what you think. Mike had to make the photos smaller so they
would all fit in one email. He said if there's any you want full
size to let him know and he'll email the ones you want full size

Sunday, August 29th, I took a combo trip on the Hula Girl with my
Uncle Grant. We had a great time. The captain and crew were excellent,
and the passengers treated my 90-year-old uncle with care and respect.
If course, it didn't hurt that my uncle caught one of the biggest
King Salmon of the day, a 25-pounder at least (see the pics I enclosed),
and that we both limited on Sea Bass. He's been bragging about it
ever since to anyone who would listen. I was pretty pleased to have
caught a King too.
Grant (or Granpa as the crew and about half of the fishers were
calling him) is talking about coming back next year. Thanks for
taking such good care of him (and me).
|September 2, 2010
You asked me to send a copy of this photo after we got back home,
you are. We had a blast bottom fishing with you and your crew
saturday! It was our first time ever ocean fishing and you really
us with the amazing number of fish we caught. We had a fish fry
at a Mr
Bose's house that night and couldn't believe how wonderful that
ling cod and
rockfish tasted on the day of catch. MMMMMM!!!! Thanks for taking
such a picturesque and bountiful fishing location and for all
the hard work
you and your crew put in that day to make it incredibly easy for
all of us.

I just wanted to drop a line and express a huge
“Thank-You” for the fun time we had on the Hula Girl.
I had heard of this boat for years and the “Crew That Treats
You Like Family”.
It was all true; Steve and Jason were professional,
personal and very polite. The salmon bite was off; you worked
hard so we all could have a good time.
I will share with my friends and I will return
next year for more fun…

Thanks so much for your overwhelming hospitality
and over-the-top customer service. We all enjoy your friendship

Steve: You have managed to totally spoil the
girls. You make them feel very special and they totally enjoy
and look forward to your guidance
and fishing on the Hula Girl – with YOU.
Jason: You are the rock star of the performance!
All I hear is:
Jason said this… Jason did that….
Well I think Jason probably would have done this…

Hi Steve! Thank you so much for helping my dad and I catch a ton
of fish! We had a blast. And thanks for taking the great picture
of me and my dad! You guys are the best. Is Jason's cut on his arm
healing up ok? See you in the spring!!!
Thank's so much for a great fishing trip on Wednesday! You and Jason
always know how to make the day extra fun. Attached are some pictures
to enjoy. We wish you the best of luck on the rest of the season.
Thanks again and we will see you next year!

Hi Steve and Jason!
I wanted to thank you for an excellent time yesterday with you
Hula Girl to fish for salmon and rock cod. Although I grew up
trout and other lesser fish in Montana, this was my first time
sea fishing (except for one time in the Mexican Caribbean, where
put a dent into the barracuda population). I had a fantastic time
was impressed with your ability to lead everybody in our group
we all had a great trip. I know for a fact that the 9 year olds
as much fun as the 75 year olds in the group, which is saying
I put together a video of our trip yesterday with you, which
on YouTube and have started to pass around to friends. It's at
Feel free to use that on
your webpage or pass it along to clients or whatever. (and if
notice any glaring errors, let me know :-))
Although I do photography as a side job and am one of those crazy
photographers who normally likes to shoot everything in his path,
didn't take many photos yesterday due to not bringing my "good"
camera, and also having too much fun fishing anyway to be away
the pole anyway :-)
I can't wait to fish with you again.

This is Doug Easter, Captain Steve and Jason call me Pop's now...
My son and grand daughter and I had a great time and respect all
the hard work that goes in to your family enterprise. The ladies
in the charter shop set the tone for a day on the water with the
crew of the Hula Girl. All of you work as a great team and we respect
your tireless efforts to find fish and keep us safe, thank you for
a great family friendly time.
Your friend, Doug Easter. "Pop's"

Steve or Jason,
Hula Girl Captains,
Shirley and I were out with you yesterday the 30th. You took a
pictures of me with the King that Jason helped me land. I hope
are digital so you can send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We really had a great time and we will do it more often.

We were out on the Hula Girl with Steve and Jason yesterday and
Had A GREAT Time! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved all
of the action with the bottom fishing. We were impressed with
how clean the boat is, how hard both men worked to keep everyone
happy and fishing. We shared our fish with our neighbors and they
wanted to know all about the boat and the charter etc. They are
interested in salmon fishing. We copied the brochure and gave
it to them—we’re sure you will be hearing from them
once salmon season opens.
We will definitely be fishing with you guys
again tho’ not for bottom fish this year—our freezer
is full as of yesterday. But NEXT YEAR you’ll see us again!
And we will see you once salmon fishing starts—we think
yesterday’s trip was the VERY BEST and can’t wait
to go out again. I signed us up for your e-mail fishing reports,
too, so we’ll keep in touch.
Thanks again for a fun trip. Janet and Howard

Just wanted to drop you a note to say "thanks again"
for the fishing trip. The weather was a gift and the fishing too.
Well worth the drive across the state. You guys made it such a
fun trip...........................here's the pic you took for

Dear the Hula Girl Crew, (Steve and Jason)
I would like to take a moment and thank you for the wonderful time that
we (The Mr Electric crew) had on your boat the Hula Girl. For some of
us it was our first time on a charter boat out in the ocean fishing
for Salmon. Steve and Jason were awesome. They were always there helping
us out, and giving us tips on what to do. They made this trip the best
that I have ever been on!
Steve, you were great. You didn’t stop until
we started to catch some fish. You were determined to give us a good
time. (and you did) The fish didn’t wake up until about 12 pm,
and that for sure wasn’t due to lack of effort! You made this
trip an unforgettable experience!
Jason, you are the best! You were always there helping
us with our lines. Making sure that we had bait, and cracking jokes
all day! Thank you for helping us catch fish, and making this the best
The two of you make a great team! And we will for sure
be back on your boat!
June 25, 2008
Wow what a great day of fishing with Steve and Jason on the Hula Girl
today. This was a special trip for my, my son and my dad (85) ... kind
of a three generation fathers day thing.
We have been out on a few other charters, but this was best by far!
Things started slow, but Captain Steve found the hot spot and we came
in with a boat limit.
Steve and Jason come across as total professionals, seem to enjoy what
they are doing, and genuinely interact with everyone.
We'll be back for sure. Please pass along thanks to these guys for their

Steve and Jason -
Thanks for a most exciting experience of my life! It had been over 30
years since I had a fishing pole in my hands. The fun I had and exhilarating
feeling of the ocean experience was great! I will remember the thrill
of my Halibut fishing trip forever.
Looking forward to another one!

I wanted to write to you on behalf of my family and I to thank you for
the wonderful time we had bottom fishing on the Hula Girl on April 10th,
2008. My three sons (ages 12, 13, 15) and wife have never been charter
fishing before. They were excited about going but also a little apprehensive,
especially my wife. The pleasant and confident staff of Westport Charters
allayed most of their fears. The Hula Girl was beautiful and appeared
well maintained which gave us additional confidence in the staff. Hula
Girl Captain Steve Westrick and deckhand Jason Westrick (also a qualified
captain) were professional and accommodating from the time we boarded
their vessel. Despite the frenzied pace when the fish were coming in
fast, the friendly crew remained calm and performed their duties with
amazing efficiency as they landed fish and baited hooks. While onboard
we never heard any profanity from the crew or observed any careless
behavior. It was clearly evident that they wanted to do their best to
ensure a fun, safe and productive experience. Captain Westrick even
took the time to teach me a certain knot and to stop the vessel on our
return trip to let the passengers observe some whales.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will undoubtedly
return for more fun and also refer others to your charter company. You
may post this letter if you like.
Kind regards –
William Osborne and family

I just received your new flier and it looks great. I realized that I
did not send a thank you letter for our wonderful trip last year. We
had boked the 7th day of Halibut season and it got closed on us at the
last minute so we decided the 11 of us would just go bottomfishing instead.
Steve and Jason put us on the fish and did not stop til we had our limits.
Being my second trip on the Hula Girl, it assured me that we will not
be looking for any other charter boat on the West Coast!!! Superior
customer service from the charter desk to offshore. Our group of guys
travels the world in search of good fishing/good times and have fished
on countless charter and guide boats and we all agreed that the Hula
Girl and its crew are the best any of us had ever fished with.
We are dissappointed we will not be joining you this year due to a full
schedule but are already planning on a Halibut bonus trip in May of
A late thanks is better than never and we all look forward to fishing
with you again,
Catch you later,
July 23, 2007
Dear Steve & Jason & the Mrs! Here's a photo of our 2nd grandson,
Austin, with one of his Sea Bass - he did catch one Ling Cod, which
he really enjoyed! You know, one of the main reasons we
will always fish with the 'Hula Girl' is because of the way in
which both of you cater to children - we sincerely appreciate the manner
in which you make them feel 'so' important! Also, when there
is someone who is 'sick' - I see the compassion in your facial expressions,
as well as see you trying to escape the area!!! (The woman in the photo
is me, Grandma Gwen) My husband and I are desiring to purchase a boat
- not one as big as the Hula Girl, but maybe a 28 footer - that we can
fish from on local lakes, as well as the sea on occasion. Any advice
or helps you could offer would be appreciated. Look forward to seeing
you next year!
Our Love -
Steven & Gwen

June 4th we were fishing with you on the Hula Girl. I just wnated to
tell you again from myself, Steve and Hal that we had an awesome experience
aboard your boat. Jason is an excellent mannered and knowledgable deckhand.
I haven’t been on another charter baot before, but you tow (Steve
and Jason) have made me a fan of yours and I will bo more than happy
to send anyone wanting to experience a charter fishing trip your way.
All I can say is TOP NOTCH. You are very pleasant hosts, and Jason’s
fillet speed is out of this world. Thanks again Steve and Jason.
I WILL BE BACK – AND SOON!!!
May 30, 2007
I wanted to thank Steve and Jason for an awesome trip
this Wednesday!!! I took my father and stepfather for Father’s
day and they loved it. Also please pass on to Steve that I figured out
why I am on his mailing list. We went fishing with him about 5 years
ago, not on the Gold Rush like we thought we had…we sure thought
Steve and Jason looked familiar… Anyway, please pass this THANK
YOU on to them please.
March 24, 2006
Steve and Jason,
We had a great time on the Hula Girl last Saturday the 18th fishing for
lingcod and bass. I must say Jason is the fastest fillet seaman we witnessed.
Once again thanks for the great time and we had the first of fish Sunday,

Kelly, Steve, and Jason,
Thank you again for another (of many) great fishing trip on Saturday.
As usual everything about your whole operation is top notch. Jerry Jensen
had a super time as did his sons. I rave about it so much at home that
Connie and I are contemplating retiring in the Grays Harbor area in a
Thanks so much for helping me out when I locked the
keys in the VW. The fishing rod hook combination did the trick. If
I ever get sick of fishing we could always break into cars for a
(Just joking!). Take care, your season is off to a roaring start.
I am happy for you and look forward to many trips in the years to
come, the next one being 5/17/06.
Take care and all the best. God Bless.

I'm Carol Lantz, and I came on a fishing trip
with Will Cleavenger back in late July. We did a bottom fishing excursion
on the Hula Girl with Steve and Jason. Everyone was so friendly, from
Kelly in the office to Jason and Steve...and the other fishermen! This
was only my second time ever charter fishing, and the last time was
about 10 years ago so I was a real novice. Jason and Steve made me
feel so comfortable and capable that I was feeling confident in no
time at all. In fact, with a boat full of 20 guys, I was the first
to yell "Fish On!!!" What a thrill that was. Well...maybe not for the
guys. Hahaha. I guess it probably didn't help that I had been pretty
open about the fact that I don't even like fish! But my friends sure
The last charter trip I took (out of Oregon) wasn't NEARLY
this much fun! It was the crew that made all the difference. In any
case, I can't wait until next year when I'll be able to come again
(and hopefully bring my own son Jason!), and I will certainly book
with Westport Charters on the Hula Girl (of course, I've been sharing
the fish and recommending a trip to friends as well!). I'm attaching
a few pictures I took and you may feel free to post them, and any of
my comments on your website or wherever. Thank you again for the trip
of a lifetime.
Take good care, and happy fishing!!!!!
May 27, 2005
To Steve, Jason and Mrs. Westrick,
Thank you so much for sending the picture and $250. I just can't tell
you how much fun I always have when I get the opportunity to come over
and fish. It's amazing how Steve and Jason make you feel so at home on
your boat, and you would swear this is the first fish they have ever
caught with their enthusiasm - they make their clients feel very special.
I look forward to coming back over as soon as possible, and of course
I will be requesting the Hula Girl!
Once again thank you so very much for making me feel so
special and I know all of your other customers feel the same way. Please
feel free to stay in touch with me at any time if you think there's
anything I need to be aware of - I love to hear about what's going
on over at Westport.
Will be seeing you!

I just returned from fishing aboard the Hula Girl with my family over the weekend.
The fish were biting and the weather was good. Nice calm waters. My hats off
to Captain Steve Westrick and his son Jason. They did an excellent job getting
us on the fish and then getting them into the boat when we got them in close
enough. This is my second year aboard the Hula Girl, and my family's first. We
will be coming back again next year to get our fishing fix.
Thanks again for the great fishing.
Ray, Kristie, RJ and Dani Dalke
Thanks for the trip on April 9th this year with Kelly Hickman, et al. Here are
a few pictures and information on the back.
June 28, 2004
Steve, Jason & Kelly,
We just want to thank you for another AMAZING fishing trip aboard the
HULA GIRL. We had an incredibly fun time on our bottom fishing trip.
We'll have to chalk it up to a "GREAT" captain and deckhand, AWESOME
fishing and beautiful weather. Thank you Steve and Jason for putting
up with us and our crew year after year and for having the patience
of Job, we really do appreciate you guys and all the hard work you
do for us while we're having fun. And thank you Kelly, for keeping
up with all the confusing changes that take place. Thanks so much and
we'll be back to see you next year.
Tim and Bonnie Chapman
Oh yah, we will call or e-mail you about the Walleye fishing
come about September and October. Let us take you out on a fun fishing
trip for a change.
Dear Westrick's (all 3 generations),
Thanks for just one of the best - if not "the" best - trips on the
ocean. I can't begin to thank you for just being you. I still don't know
how you got us there - one minute to spare. Steve was awesome - Jason
was truly a track star and I wouldn't have caught that beauty without
Jack getting me off the bottom a couple times.
Thank you and good fishing.
Dear Steve, Jason and the Hula Girl!
We want to thank you for such a great day that we had with you on June
22, 2004. I have not been out on a charter since the late 60's or early
70's. I used to go with my dad every chance we got to fish for salmon.
This was just as much fun if not more so than I recall having in those
days. Of course, the bottom fish were not at all popular then. My Dad
would have loved the trip we had with you. He loved to fish.
Again, thanks for your hard work and efforts in making
this a special fishing day. You know that ocean and knew how to get
us to the fish. We will be back again.
Jason can bait hooks and filet fish for us anytime.
Our best to all of you and best wishes for a continuing

Dear Steve, Jason, and the Admiral,
My brothers and I have been getting together to go fishing once a year
for the past seven or eight years. Three of those trips were with you
and we enjoyed every one very much. This year we decided our sons were
old enough to go with us and we signed on with you for the July 21st
salmon trip. Needless to say it was a smash hit
- you have never disppointed us. My son Kyle's salmon lasted until 4:30
pm as the derby leader and
he is still talking about it.
I cannot tell you what a pleasure it is doing business
with Westport Charters. You are all professional, your customer service
is outstanding, and your ability to deliver a quality fun time is unmatched
Here is a little ditty you inspired just from being so
There's a boat called the Hula Girl
As fine as a ship can be,
With Captin Steve at the helm,
Mate Jason doing the work of three.
No matter the size of the party on board
Whether its loaded from bow to stern,
With the quality of service that you get
You feel you're their only concern.
It doesn't matter what you're after
Whatever you're going for,
They know right where to take you
To get your limit and more.
They are Westport's greatest charter
Brighter than a star you'd wish on,
For the thrill of a sharply bended pole
Causing a grin and a yell, "Fish On!"
Thanks and we will see you again...Take care!
Steve and Kyle Densmore
July 14, 2003
Thank you once again for a memorable trip. You and Jason and everyone else
at Westport Charters made our trip one we will never forget. Your patience,
helpfulness and professionalism make the Hula Girl the best in the fleet. Kudos
from the Scouts, parents, leaders and friends of Troop 300. We look forward
to next year.
|June 30, 2003
Just wanted to thank Steve, Jack and Jason for the great experience this
weekend! It was my first time out on the ocean and I loved it, can't wait
to go again! We almost won the Derby for the day, missed it by 4 pounds
but the trip was worth every penny. I will for sure be back and I have
already gave out your web site to a ton of my friends and told them "Hula
Girl" all the way! Can't wipe the grin off of my husband on catching
that big King.
We will be back,
Cathy and Brain Sterbens, and Big Al

To Hula Girl (Steve),
Here is that picture ya wanted! Also, just a little note
to say thank you so very much for the great fishing trip. It's always
a pleasure to fish with ya. I sure appreciate all you do for my dad
(Grover). I'm sure this will be his last Big Fish trip - he was pretty
tired. It will take a few days to recoup, but then by that time it
will be Salmon Time.
See you soon,
Jo Farrar and Grover Smith
Sorry it took so long (August '02 trip). We had a blast!! Here is
a picture of my 50 pounder I caught on the Hula Girl last day of
the season. Thanks
for a great time and a great crew. You will see us again!
Alan Hogan (& Ronda Martin)
June 2, 2002
We made it home okay and are still talking about the best
fishing trip we have ever been on!!! Our plans for next year, heck
maybe even this fall, are to come back and fish on the Hula Girl. You
made us feel so great (patience and personality) - what can we say,
you have it all. We plan to tell everyone we know to go to Westport
Charters & the Hula Girl. We had never been to Westport before but
now we will return without a doubt.
Thank you for a wonderful time.

Thanks for the fishing trip - our "whole crew" always has a blast on the boat. You and Jason are great!! We are already starting to plan for next year on the same weekend so we will be seeing you guys next year.

Tim & Bonnie Chapman
Just wanted to thank you for a great fishing trip May 8, 2000. You and your crew
were the best. Everyone I know will know about the HULA GIRL and its crew
of pros. We in our group will be back.
Enclosed are pictures I took of my son and daughter July 10, 2000 after fishing for salmon on the Hula Girl. Ryan won the derby that day with his 29lb 1oz king. I believe Ryan also pulled in a 22 lb King & Jessica's was slightly less. The picture of both of them shows their fish they caught that day. The man who handed out the check to Ryan said that he and/or Jessica would be in the local paper that week of July 10th. We never checked so we're not sure if they were in the Westport paper or not.
We wanted to thank you for the great fishing trip and like always it was a lot of fun to fish with you and your son! Just a reminder of our fish day on July 10th - the boat brought in 50% Kings!!! It was awesome!
See you this summer.
We had the pleasure of fishing with you on Thursday of last week and wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the trip. Steve, you are the consummate skipper. Your sign says "Patience, free" - you should charge for it! You certainly have that perfect blend that's needed in your line of work - patience, experience and, of course, that strong desire to catch more fish than dad, right?! Jason, thanks for helping us with everything. I have been fishing at Westport since 1961 and I truly mean this, you are the best deck hand I have ever seen on a charter. We look forward to being able to go out with you both again!|
Lowell and Jane Frye
To the crew of the Hula Girl,|
Just wanted to let you know what a great time the members and friends of Boy Scout troop 300 had on our fishing trip aboard the "Hula Girl" on August 26th. It was a first trip for many of our group and they really enjoyed themselves. You continue to provide a top notch service and we are looking forward to another trip. A special thanks to Steve and Jason for their help in making our trip memorable.
October 1, 2002
I would like to echo Russ's comments below. Even though
I got a little sick on the boat, the enthusiasm shown for those fish
caught and taking us to different spots to catch different fish was
a real treat. That definitely made for a much better experience than
The last time we went out, we went with a different
charter. The experience was less than desirable. The deckhand was
"cold" with everyone and did little to ensure everyone was
having fun. And to compound matters, the captain of the ship asked
to reel in our lines after having caught less than my limit in about
20 minutes of fishing. Needless to say, there was little fun to be
on that trip.
I look forward to going fishing with you again next
year....., minus the sea sickness.
September 26, 2002
Just a small thank you to let you know how much we
enjoyed our bottom fishing with you. The service was excellent,
fishing was excellent, and we plan on making a return trip again next
I assume that Jason is back in school, and wish you
luck in finding a deck hand that is as proficient as he is.
Thank you again for a great time.
September 5, 2002
Please tell Steve Westrick and Jason thanks for the
great fishing trip my brother and I had over labor day. I made it back
to Iowa with the fish still frozen. Hope to see ya again next year.

and we in turn will recommend him to all we know, if they're going
I was told that was Steve's son aboard the Hula Girl.

Thank you Westport Charters for having such a fine
crew. It made our fishing trip a wonderful experience.

My name is David Bergeron, and I had the great pleasure
of fishing aboard the Hula Girl on Father's day with Steve, Jack, and
I just wanted to let you know that it was absolutely
the best day of fishing I have ever paid for. You guys are great. I
really enjoyed all aspects of the trip, even though we had a slow bite
for salmon in the morning, the rest of the day totally made up for it.
I hope that when I choose to charter fish in Westport,
that the services of the Hula Girl will be available to me and my friends.
I also took a bunch of pictures that day, which I haven't
had the chance to download yet, but I will plan to send you some when
I get a chance. There were a couple of good ones of Jason dealing with
the piles of rock fish that were a total bonus as we only paid to fish
Thank you very much for a truly memorable day,
May 10, 2002
I wanted to let you know that the fishing trip on the
Hula Girl was more than I had expected. you made it a great experience
that I will always remember. You will be highly recommended to everyone
I know. You truly are in person, just like you appear to be on your
web site, a great sport and a sincere guide. I look forward to using
your service and going out again in the near future. As you probably
know, word of mouth sales are better than any advertisement in the paper
or internet, and buddy, you got mine.

Dear Captain Steve,
Please reserve two places on the September 18 tuna
trip on the Hula Girl. Your brochure has driven us crazy and we can't
wait to go. We'll be in the Alice Elliot and Richard Plona party. Here's
our deposit for the trip.
September 16, 2001
Jack, Steve, and Jason,
Just had to let you know myself (Kent) and my buddy
(Mac) had an absolutely fabulous time on your boat. You definitely
where the fish are especially when 23 people can pull up 75 to 100
salmon in 1.5 hrs. and leave with over 50 keepers! You were great
made sure we got our feet wet (literally wet) on our first trip. You
showed us a great time. Thanks for everything!
September 15, 2001
To Steve and Jason,
This is Becky Lyons. My father, Roger Lyons and I went
on a Salmon trip with you guys on the 4th of September. We just wanted
to say thanks for such a good time. You are always so helpful whenever
we are there. It amazes us how much running around you guys do, especially
when the water is so rough. By the way, is there a time of the year
to come whenwe can expect better weather? I couldn't really handle the
choppy waters, I felt kinda sick most of the time =) I know its hard
to predict what the water is going to be like, but at least if there's
a time of the year where the weather is most likely to be a little more
cooperative. I honestly don't know how you guys do it, I could barely
stand up the entire time =) Also, we were curious if there's a way to
reserve a spot on the boat, preferably a spot in the back.
Anyhow, we just wanted to say thank you and let you
know what a good time we had. Remember, I dance hula so if you guys
need a dancer for your boat just let me know, I'll come down there
anytime. Thanks again.

Steve, Jack, and Jason,
Just wanted to say thanks again. You have a first
class operation. I especially appreciated the care you took of every
at every level of experience. And the condition of your boat (clean)
and equipment was impeccable. Thanks again. See you next year.

My son and I went fishing with Gary Minnoch's late
July group again this year, and once again you and your crew provided
the best possible fishing experience for us! Thanks and best wishes
for your continued success.

I really want to thank you, Jason, Kelly and Amber
for all you have done. I know the Hula Girl is, by far, the BEST boat
in Westport. And I know the crew is the BEST on the Washington Coast.
Steve and Jason, thank you for helping me bring in
the "monster" King on July 3.
I had a great time today. Sorry about the little glitch
(your back problem) but every thing turned out for the best. In
future have the deck hand turn on the radar. As we are all getting
older, even simple tasks are getting harder. I liked the comment
made when I picked up my mess of fish (bag). God, that's a heavy bag.
I hope that you read this slowly as I only type with one finger.
P.S. Just because your wife gets to go home and have
a nap after we go out to sea doesn't mean that she should have to
out the cabin! Hope you get a chuckle out of this!

Steve and Kelly:
Thank you and Kevin and Jack for a great trip. All
agreed best trip ever taken on a charter (even though I didn't catch
the derby winner).
Hope the season lasts through the weekend.

Re: May 20, 2001 Halibut Charter
I would like to thank all of you for a great trip.
I have been on many charters out of Westport, and never had such
time as I had on the Hula Girl. Steve and his son are great and the
way the fishing is organized on this boat was excellent. We know
to call when we want to go fishing!!
Hey, thanks for a wonderful fishing trip. We all
had a great time and the fishing was fantastic. Thought you might like
a few photos for your album. Will do it again someday.
All the best,

Dear Capt. Steve,
Enclosed are some pictures from our charter on the
Hula Girl last Saturday. This will be a trip Rich Willie, and I
be talking about for years to come. You run a tight ship. It was the
best charter I've ever been on (Atlantic & Lake Michigan). And
I'm not just saying that because I came home with 25 lbs of delicious
On the drive home we were already organizing a return
trip. I hope that does not dismay you, because you will see us again!!
Please also extend our thanks to Jason.
See what our customers are saying.
