Captain Butch has been working hard to bring you the best in the charter fishing business. I DO NOT see how he does it all, there has to be much more drive than just love for what he does!!!
I know that all the Captains that work hard and are in high demand and have corporate sponsors and accomplishments above the norm is because these guys work their butt's off and are very proud of what they do and have done and want you to know this before you lay down your hard earned money for a fishing trip!! I know I said I wasn't going to list anymore here, but, after reading on another site where a Captain said he "wasn't going to "BORE" you with all his accomplishments, he would just show you pictures instead, that got me to thinking... You have the right to know about these accomplishments, and if you don't want to read them that should be your decision. I won't say anymore.... but, you don't have to try and read between the lines when it comes to Captain Butch Foster, Captain Chris Foster, and Yeah Right Charters accomplishments, here they are for you to see. If you get "bored" you can stop reading, but it will be YOUR choice..... oh yeah, we have pictures as well, lots of pictures, and our sponsors are listed on this website as well. We are proud of the reputation we have built and Captain Butch & Chris Foster work very hard to go above and beyond your greatest expectations. GOD, FAMILY, and YOU will always be 1st with us and your money is the least thing on our list. Support not just us, but all the hard working Captains that are proud to list their accomplishments and sponsors on their websites. There is a reason they have them the Captains have earned them through hard work and dedication!!!..... after all, why wouldn't they want to list them for you to see or have a place you can place comments on their sites. Could it be they don't have anything to list and don't want your comments???? We have plenty to list and nothing to hide, Welcome Aboard!!!
