Anna & George,


I cannot overstate my positive experience this past weekend fishing with Downeast Guide Service in Oriental.  I have fished with almost all your guides over the years, and Capt Cailyn was absolutely remarkable.  He works hard, is incredibly personable and helped me and my son have a fantastic day on the sound.    


We started off slow, not sighting a fish for the first 4+ hours on a flat, calm day (which normally don’t produce many drum).  I was beginning to wonder if we’d be shut out.  Then just after 630PM, the dinner bell went off, signaled by the front reel screaming as line peeled off.  For the next 90 minutes, we had our fill of 40-50+ inch old drum bending over rod after rod.  Our final two two strikes came as we tried to bring in the lines for the day only to get hit on the retrieve.  The second to last fight was the best I’ve ever seen from a drum before we headed back to Oriental in the dark.  I’ve been drum fishing with you for years but this one will be hard to top!


Thanks to Downeast, Capt Cailyn and all the people of Oriental for a phenomenal weekend.
