Thanks for an absolutely wonderful fishing trip. The whole�family, kids and adults, had such a great time. The 3 hours just flew�by. A special thanks for taking such good care of the younger kids, both�with the fishing and just generally keeping them entertained. We will�most definitely call you again next summer for another trip.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for showing us a great time on the lake on Saturday.�You look us out for the 5pm - 8pm trip which was awesome!�Everyone had a blast and i'll definitely recommend your services�and we'll hopefully be back at some point in the future.


Hi Ed, We wanted to thank you for a wonderful fishing trip.�Tommy, Don and I had a wonderful time. Tommy was so excited to go�fishing for the first time and catch so many fish!! Don and I�appreciated your easy instruction - I couldn't believe I caught a�fish the first time I cast my line in the water. Your trip started�our vacation out on a perfect note with tons of wonderful memories.�Thanks again for a wonderful time!! Claire Riley

Hi Ed,

My son (Brett) and I want to thank you for a�very memorable fishing trip you provided for us this past Monday�evening! We were impressed with the amount of �action� we received�during the 3 hour time period. The quantity and size of the bass�that we caught were quite remarkable! We also enjoyed your company�and appreciated your expertise and humor! We definitely plan on�coming back either later this fall or next spring for another go�around! Thanks for the experience that my son and I�will remember for a lifetime!


Hi Ed,

We're back home after our short vacation in the�Adirondacks... the highlight of which was our fishing outing on�your boat yesterday! We really enjoyed it, and truly appreciate�your hospitality and wisdom. We'd love to see the photos you took with your camera; please e-mail them to me at your�convenience.

Many thanks again, and take care, Erica Miles

Hey Ed,

Below is the note my brother-in-law John�sent to you this morning. I agree totally with everything he said�but just wanted to add a few words from me personally. The boat, the gear, the information you�shared regarding the�Lake George region�and your obvious skill�couldn't have been better for me, considering!�Most importantly I want to say thank you�(and thanks to my bro-in-law John for finding you), for an�experience that most blind people would never have. My being blind�turned out to be�no obstacle at all; your boat, equipment and help�were exactly right for the situation.

Thanks again, Doug

You know, Ed,

To�say that you were accommodating to us would be quite an�understatement. Despite your better judgment, we dragged you�out in the rain the first day. Even when we did get a nice�day, and kept you out well past the planned 4 or 6 hours, you never�flinched. Even on a finicky day for fishing, following a�couple days of rain, you found us plenty of bass, and big ones to�boot. You�re a terrific guy to be around, and we enjoyed�ourselves immensely. My personal thanks to you, Ed, for having�fulfilled what I had dreamed this vacation would be for me, my�brother-in-law Doug, and my dad. I�ll never forget it.

Dear Mr. Lockheart,

My husband and I were going through our�photo albums with our children and came across your brochure from�1997. That summer we come up to Lake George with my family and we�took a fishing trip on your boat and we took pictures and sent them�to you. You made a brochure with one of the pictures of my son with�your daughter (black and white and later on in color. We had great�memories that summer thanks to you. This summer we had friends come�up and told them to look you up if interested in fishing they came�and said they had a great time. I just wanted to share a piece of�memory with you. I hope all is well with you and your family.

Hi Ed,

I just wanted to take�a moment and again thank you for a great day of fishing, stories and�just being on the lake. My sons and I truly enjoyed our experience. Josh�was so excited about catching so many fish and it will be an experience�he will remember for a life time. Even Mark who didn't catch as many as�Josh commented that just being together and enjoying the time spent�together was a treasure. We will definitely make another trip up to fish�and will take my wife who after hearing our story seemed like she would�enjoy it as much as we did. I'm hoping that maybe in late September when�the Great Garage Sale in Warrensburg takes place we can come up again.�Would the fishing be good then/ well, I'll let you go so again many�thanks, Ed.

Hi Ed,

I just wanted to get this note off to you to tell you what a�terrific experience you provided for my wife and me on May 29 2010�just 4 short days ago. We desperately needed some relaxation and in�the 4 hours we spent with you we got all of that and more. You�clearly knew the waters of that lake�better than most men could know�their bath tub. As a result , my wife and I each caught about 15�fish which were released to get �bigger for next time. My wife had�never done any thing involving the outdoors and she had a�perfectly wonderful day. Your pontoon boat was very easy ion her as�she can have motion sickness but with your boat , no problem. In�those rare moments when you were not expertly guiding us toward�where the fish were, you tested my knowledge of TV and Movie western�trivia, provided excellent conversation and local history lessons�and some outstanding suggestions on where to eat. I went to that prime rib place and I tell you what, it was a big piece of prime�rib, more than i could handle , and cooked to perfection.I have no�reservation whatsoever about spreading the word that for the best�relaxation and entertainment a morning fishing with Ed Lockhart is�money well spent. Would I do it again? Just show me where to sign�up.

Best wishes, Earl Dewey, Wallingford CT

Hi Ed,

Hi Ed,

Thank you�for a fun filled day. the guys really enjoyed the day. It was made�possible because we all came to a conclusion that night that you we�simply a down to earth guy without an attitude. we will be back up next�summer with the families and we will book with you�again. Ed, thanks for a great week. We could not�have picked a better captain on the whole lake!



Thanks�so much for taking us out on Saturday afternoon. Lesa, I and Alesandra�had a blast! In fact, my wife was singing your praises and telling�everyone at Diamond Cove Beach about your fish locator skills!! Thanks for all of your help.

Regards. Paul V.�Greco

Hey Ed,

I just want to thank you for another great time, though the conditions�were tough your knowledge and company made it another great trip.�Sharon and�sled ed feel the same way and we'll see you soon.



I just got back and wanted to thank you�for a great evening of fishing. My son Richie has not stopped telling�fish stories since he got�back that night. Your easy going nature and�ability to put us on fish made the experience exactly what I had hoped�for. You definitely have a repeat customer for years to follow. �

Thanks Rich Dalton
