"All I have to say is 32 striper in 1 day. Captain Stan is awesome I have taken my 14 year old son out many times and he never caught a thing...after a few seconds into the first cast he hooked his first fish ever a 21&1/2 in striper!!!! We continued to nail stripers all day long. Captain Stan was great with my son and very patient and informative lots of fun too. He even let him drive the boat home. Best fishing trip ever we will be going again and again. We ended up with our limit and lots of awesome memories and stories. THANKS CAPTAIN STAN :)" - Cesar Gomez

"I can't say enough about what a great time I've had with Cpt. Stan. I had been hoping to take my son fishing for stripers for some time. I called around a number of guide services and no one seemed too keen on making sure a kid had a good time. But Stan said he'd be delighted to have us along.

I've since gone out with Stan on 3 occasions. Each trip was great. He put us on the fish and kept us there until we had our fill. More importantly to me, he kept my son and later, the other kids I brought along, both engaged and on the fish.

Fishing is patience but with Stan, we were too busy catching fish and having fun to have to keep the kids patient. Stan is my MAN for stripers in the Delta. Plus, he's just a decent human being. Thanks Stan!"  - David Brame

"I got a gift certification using Stan Koenigsberger's Quetzal Adventures guide. I invited a couple of my friends and took myself out fishing and what a great trip it was! Stan has a great sense of humor and has a lot of knowledge of the Delta and fish we were after is awesome. Stan was waiting by the boat dock when we showed up a little before 7 am. He started the day with humor saying we will fish from the dock today. We started off with a giggle. The day started out great and just proceeded to get better. He had everything set up for us & explained in great detail how the trip would go, how to use the tackle, when and when not to set the hook and so on... He was very informative, knowledgeable about the fish as much as he could since there was some communication barriers but that didn't stop him from showing us how to fish! I didn't mention earlier but my friends and I are Deaf. Stan didn't let that communication barrier stop us.

We hooked fish after fish, after we got our limits. We had 8 keepers out of 12. The largest fish of that day was a 26'. We were done early but Stan made our trip even more pleasurable by giving us a tour of the delta. We got a lot of tips from him. We have gone on a few guide boats. My friends and I agreed he's most definitely a 5-star fishing guide. With our fishing addiction in our system, we decided to call Stan up a couple of weeks later and hired him as private charter. We had 3 keepers out of 13 on that day. 27 & half inches was the largest for us that day.

I'll definitely be recommending people to use Captain Stan's Quetzal Adventures guide service. His boat is very comfortable!

Thank you Stan for being a great guide. You will definitely be hearing from us again soon. Let us know when salmon are biting! Thanks"  - Jamie
