Hello again , just letting everyone know we are very aware of the event this weekend using more unlicensed guides, again breaking the law again, well we are watching taking vidieo and other things so it wont be long this will end for sure .... we will not stop untill this will end not going away
Roland Martin's Service Center. I don't know how other people are treated at this business, but I do know how I've been treated. I took my boat in for repairs, miner things that needed to be done. I was quoted an estimate of $240.00 to $280.00 for everything. I agreed to those repairs and made sure of the estimated price for the job. When they called me to let me know the repairs were finished, they also let me know the price. It was $570.00 some odd dollars. What kind of business is he running over there? Then (like an idiot) I decided to park my boat inside the storage area to try to sale it. Again to my amazement, it had been subject to abuse to the port side of the boat and in the back. Body damage. This is totally uncalled for. I am outraged! I just wonder how many other people have had these problems with this business.

Well this could be fun lol. lookes like things are catching up with them I know a few people that had some problems their but never did say anything they just never went back and I will say it is wrong if they are useing guides to work on trips that are not legal I can understand his point . will be fun to see whear this ends up.
I have no clue about there service department but I do know that Raymond and the hotel side of things and they have been great to me and the Anglers who lodged with them and it has always been a fun time at a good rate.once again I can only speak from that side of the business. Blm
The mechanic at Rolands has been ther forever, he started at Angler's Marine when he was a kid. Always treated me well. Staying at the motel, we are treated well there also. I guess you can find fault at amy marina, as you can't please everyone all the time.
True some people that go to maryanns marina , Not rolands , Not scotts, but maryanns marina get some good service , and yes you can not please everyone for sure. All though I do know for a fact that the things that are talked about did happen , peoples boats broken into stripped , motors taken , and all they can say or should I say all ramon could say is to bad. call your insurance . he should know all about that . he was a insurance sales man befor taking over the marina .. but it looks like this post has nothing to do with that . I was called to get onboard with the petition that is getting singed and sent to the coast guard for using im proper guides. That is for sure aginst the law. so far I belive they have several people on this so I am sure it will be looked into. I do not have anything to do with the marina do not care eather way what happens at maryanns place ,But I do know it is going down hill from what is was A few years back. To bad
PWhen the bass fishing is on in the Glades or on the lake the owners call in extra anglers not only to make more money for themselves but to help out anglers in need of money. I do agree that on the lake they should have a captains license as required. But this sounds like a witch hunt. Just my opinion. .........
So because some guides want to do things right . spend the time the money in getting all the proper papaer work and everything they need to be legal . And they want all the others guides to do the same and be legal and do what the LAW requires to do to guide on the lake its a witch hunt. Maybe they are just trying to let everyone know that maryann and ramon are breaking the law and its not fair. But because they provide jobs to guides that are not legal (its ok is that what you are saying)? just asking . so if I come to the glades and keep and kill like 200 bass in a day its ok? because I will be paying a guide that needs money . I really dont think its A witch hunt maybe just some HONEST people want things done right. JMHO Like I said it will be fun to see what happens.
Like I said I agree on the part were they should have a captains license. But maybe someone is upset because they would rather use someone they like without a license than someone they don't that does.
JUST my opinion here!....the license thing, I'm not a big fan of!...It's just a way for the Gov. to make more money!..($900.00 plus) come on!...( the Game commission just provides a course of a few hours to allow you to hunt with a GUN!...NO MONEY!!! ) if you have up to date insurance and provide this Information to the customer, that's all that should be required!....let the free market dictate who's worthy of business!...The Gov. is regulating us out of jobs!..that's a no Brain-er! ...trust me, I've seen some Capts. with all the proper paper work and scare the living CRAP! out of you with their boat knowledge and handling!....word of mouth and time on water is what makes a good Capt!...yes!...don't freak on me! I know there's bad apples everywhere!.... it's just...a piece of paper signed by the gov. allowing you to operate a boat with clients in it doesn't keep a IDIOT from Being an IDIOT!...it just makes it legal?....NO disrespect to the Capts. out there!....you know what I mean!....be an intelligent responder!...it's all about the $$$$$ as far as the paper work goes!....and it sounded like a "WITCH HUNT" to me too!
I do agree with you somewhat A peice of paper dose not make some one a better anything . A better captin , or driver , or roofer , or bricklayer, or crane oparator, or anything .The point is they are breaking the law. So you say its ok in your book fine lets say your driving to the store some one runs into you totals your car out puts your kids in the hospital has no insurance . no license, nothing. Wait that is diffrent right . WRONG laws are laws I dont like them all eather . I belive people are missing the guys point . It is not ok for some to follow the law and some not to , so letting them work knowing that they do not have the right paper work is WRONG DEAD WRONG KNOW MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT NAME YOU HAVE .....and I bet if that happend to you im sure you would be yelling as loud as anyone . IF YOUR WILL BE HONEST . SO you also would be on a witch hunt.. Yes we all have to make a living so if you picked guiding as a living so be it . if yu are not making enough money maybe you picked the wrong thing to do. BUT if you did then follow the rules in place.

Mr Anonymous!....I'm not trying to Argue with you!...I stated it was my OPINION!....we all have one!....Sir!...you do have your panties in a wad though!....first off, I said I wasn't crazy about spending 900.00 plus dollars to prove to anybody I can perform my JOB!.....then I also said as long as you have the proper INSURANCE for clients, boat, damage and GOD forbid death!....then that's good enough for me!....my dislike about "OVER REGULATING" everything is a serious problem with or economy period!....and for your Info I'm the owner of a trucking Company....and it's ridiculous the amount of money and forms I have to keep in order to keep my livelihood rolling!....it's all about the REVIEW Sir!...BOTTOM LINE!....and I also said NO DISRESPECT to the Capts. out there!....by the likes of the Info here, your a guide? (not for sure!)....and your pissed!...your boat problem is causing you to blame everything on every body else....try doing something called "DUE DILIGENCE"....we're all guilty of this!....checking into things thoroughly!!!!....and even in this case......**** HAPPENS!!!!...it's called life!...you win some you lose some!....and man up alittle don't start bringing in your loved ones here to hide behind....we all care about our loved ones!....and to truly answer your Question about if it's O.K. to brake the law?....well my answer is....STUPID ONES!....YES! (crucify Me!!!) ....don't even go there Anyom.!....I'm sure your the most honest person in the world too!...I asked you to respond intelligently!...and maybe if someone followed you around with a Video Camera for a little while without you knowing your honesty might SHINE!....if your good at what you do!....people find YOU!....if your NOT!.....then you Rot!....just a little hint Anyom!...have a great day!... and by the way.....you are on a which Hunt!....reason being is you DID NOT COMPREHEND my 1st post!...your all about getting even on a bad service deal!....and again!.... let me be clear!...NO DISRESPECT TO THE CAPTS> OUT THERE ...I personally know a bunch!...I know how you had to study to pass the test and I respect that!...I just don't respect the Gov. from Regulating people out of Jobs!....tight lines to all!...

OK so now I am A maggott, Just so you know ! I did do that... I will not call you names I think its very low class , I spent 1700 dollars on my boat , it was never right went to the service guy ramon he told me in so many words sorry , so I took it elsewhear they fixed it for 90 bucks was a crank trigger . I did not say anything to anyone about this. I just will never go back . I did not post this on the other site and i did not post it hear . But if you want to call me names that is fine maybe some people would like to know if things are not right before they spend there hard earned money . I am sure your so well off it dose not matter to you . And maybe some people would like to know if they are fishing with GUIDES THAT ARE NOT LEGAL TO AVOID A TICKET OR EAVEN WORSE .AGAIN IM SURE ITS NOT YOU . and from the lookes of things I am not the only one its happend to .I have heard several stories from people that post hear very often about what happend to them at maryanns marina . I did not post what they said eather . I just made A comment about the post that was started by someone else but I guess maggots like me can not have the same rights as you .AS far as a guide being a guied your right but it lookes like you are saying it is ok to break the law. again I bet if something happend to you or your loved ones and you were left out in the cold you would be screeming from a mountian top about it and calling your lawyer asap .. and so mr williams untill you know all the facts maybe you should just have a little more of An open mind . unless of course your part of the problem ......
