Allen took my kids and I out for the night - was a rough one in terms of wind and murky waters but he managed to put us on good fish. I had not done this for 40 years or so; it was great to have a good teacher as well as a good guide. I think the kids were happy and sad to see the sun come up. Will book another trip with Allen the next time we are in the area.
That's right, "The Best Day Ever," according to my 7yr old. We had an awesome day with Captain Allen early this August. Starting at 5:45am, Allen picked my son and me up and we were on the water for no less than 13 hours. Talk about getting your moneys worth! Had an amazing morning fishing for Reds and it proved early that Allen really knew his stuff. This experience was new to us and Allen taught us well and with tons of patience. From untangling lines to answering no less than 1,003 questions from a talkative 7yr old, Allen was great all day long. His love and passion for fishing was obvious and his determination for my family to have a great day paid off. We'll be back again and again, and again! Thanks Allen!
"Best Day Ever"
Alan, Thanks for the awesome flounder gigging trip last night. It turned out to be a good one with 18 flounder in the boat. Hope to see you again next year as I practice all year not to miss the one that got away. It wound up being 32 pounds of flounder that we caught.
I am from Wisconsin and was on Topsail Island for a vacation. My family and I had never heard of flounder gigging until someone told us about it at East Coast Sports. They got us hooked up with Captain Allen, who took us out later that night. (06/26/12) The night started out slow, but Allen worked really hard to put us on some fish. He coached us in what to look for and how to properly gig a flounder. The night picked up and we ended up getting five flounder each. Allen answered all of our questions and explained everything about fishing in the Topsail area. We had a great time and would definitely go with him again. If you're in the neighborhood, we strongly recommend fishing with "The Breadman."
What the heck is flounder gigging?
My 12 year son and I went flounder gigging with "the breadman" in early April and had a very memorable experience. We gigged a 7# and a 5# among the 10 that we took home. We liked Allen so much went Red Drum fishing with him a couple of days later and of course caught fish. Allen REALLY knows the area and will put you on fish. I have had charters with other guys and by far Allen is the best that is out there. He works VERY hard to make sure you have a good time. We have a home on Topsail Island and will difinitely be hooking up with Allen many more times in the future. Robbie Fuller Topsail Island
Both my Dad and my brother treated me to a great day of fishing. This was my first guided trip and we had an awesome experience. Allen worked very hard and he put us on the fish. Allen give you 110 % he is the best guide by far.
Great Birthday gift
