Godsey created the entire site (no small
feat in 1995) and Mike Aughney using his
contacts from 12 full time years of
party and commercial boat fishing
(mainly out the Golden Gate, California
rivers and Alaska) provided daily fishing reports from party boat skippers, river fishing guides, and fishermen, professionals and amateurs alike, with the goal of providing fishermen the most current and relevant fishing information available.
Mike Godsey's foresight and creative
mind foresaw what has become the
