ORCA Friendships

Post by Bill Muth »

Back home from a long weekend in Cape Cod, highlighted by a fishing trip with Jim Schottenham and guided by Capt. Dan Marini. I never would have met Jim and Dan without ORCA and feel blessed to call them friends. In addition to being an astute collector, Dan in an incredible guide. When Dan says, “Cast right there” and you comply, it’s almost guaranteed fish. I have also never had a guide call when the bite would shut down to the minute. Absolutely amazing. Great hanging out with Jim and Sandy, we finished every evening with cocktails and great conversation. Love this club.

That's a great group of guys right there ...a guaranteed good time.

I've never had the pleasure of fishing with my buddy Dan, but know he only does things one way ...the best they can be done.

Looks like fun Bill. I love the Stripper fishing on Cumberland Lake here in Ky, but have not been in a few years.
