2011 Yes Bay Lodge Guide Staff!

The season planning begins early, right after the end of the previous season we start shopping for our guides for the upcoming season. Of course we have our mainstays, guides who return year after year...and to that we supplement with new guides who we hope will return for a number of years, depending on their home lifestyle and other obligations.

This year we are excited with both our returning guides and some really great new guides. As usual we had a tremendous response from our solicitations, making it very difficult to choose, we had over 60 applicants for what looks to be 5 positions.

First our returning guides!

Of course we must have Slice Captain Jim Bernard who returns for his 18th season at Yes Bay!

And Slammer Dan Colander returns for his 12th year!

And of course I will be returning for my 5th year!

And the season would not be the same without Kicker (Ron Chimenti) - although his return is still a little questionable due to some licensing problems, but there will be a spot for old Kicker!

Batman (Capt David Noble) Returns for his third season!

And Captain (Yea Yea) Al Bermitz returns for his 2nd season!

And now our new guides for 2011!

Captain Mike Locklear!

Captain Jeff Bortz

Captain John Pfeiffer

Captain Myron Jemison

And finally Captain Sean Falconer - who I don't have a picture of yet, but will soon and I will add it to this list!

You can go to the guides page on the Yes Bay website and click on their picture to read a little bit more about all of our guides for 2011.

Go here:

And as usual Sean (Harvester) Roberts and Colin (The General) Mc Crossin, will more than likely be around during the busy time in late August and early September, depending on our bookings!

Stay Tuned for more off-season happenings around Yes Bay Lodge in SE Alaska!
