Anglers Log Testimonials

“I wanted to send a note about your fishing log book that I ordered. It was everything I hoped it would be. I absolutely Love it. It was a gift for my son who recently purchased a brand new Contender. He is making his maiden voyage this Thursday and I was hoping it would be here in time and it was! I searched the marine stores here for something like this and there was nothing. Thank God for the internet. Again, thanks so much for a great fishing log and a very reasonable price.”

West Islip, New York

“Hi. I just wanted to take the time to let you know how happy I am with your product. I have been looking for a fishing log book for a while now. I found a log book “cover” for about $40.00, but the pages would be $20.00 extra. Your log book had everything I was looking for and more. I even had to call to make sure everything was really included. The lady that answered the phone was very friendly and helpful. Thanks so much for such a great product.”

“I received my FishTales order and it was more than I expected in the detail of the log. Thank you for a thoughtfully laid out product! I will definitely be ordering more of these as gifts for fishing buddies.”

“Just wanted to send a thank you message…I ordered the Ring Fishing Log for my father for Christmas recently. We all moved down from upstate New York to North Carolina nine years ago, and he especially has completely fallen in love with the ocean and fishing. He’s tried to commit his successes (and not-so-successes) to memory, so my husband and I thought we’d look for some kind of fishing log as a gift. We came across your website and I’m so glad we did! The log you sent us is absolutely perfect! It’s very through, yet not overly scientific, and I know that my dad is going to love it! Thank you so much for your wonderful product and the great service.”

“At 7:30 am this morning the postman delivered my order from you. Great service, thank you! I am absolutely delighted with the log-book. It’s brilliant and I know my son will think the same – when he gets it for Christmas. Thanks you again for mailing it.”

Guides Log Testimonials

"For the last decade I have been blessed to be able to guide on my home waters from BayPort-Crystal River, FL over 250 days a year. Over the last 10 years I have logged all of my great days on the water through my Fish Tales Log Books and I religiously go back to these logs to check on past patterns. My everyday logs are made easy with FishTales log books and I have so much faith in these log books that I recommend them to all of my guides and fishing clients.

Log books are not just a journal for great fishing days, these are great tools that all successful and seasonal anglers should use to home in on their craft. Simplified Solutions has made the task of logging trips way easier due to their user friendly format. It has been a pleasure doing business with Debbie and the staff at Simplified Solutions over the last decade and they have a life time customer in myself and Florida Fishing Adventures."

“I received the guide log from a friend of mine as a gift when I started guiding. I’m pretty savvy on the computer and using all the different mobile devices out there, but I needed something that is permanent, quick and easy. I needed something that could detail all the intricacies of saltwater fishing and the diversity and individuality of each client. The log not only helps me to keep track of my fishing successes, but also my clients. The Guides Log does just that and I’ve also bought one for my friend who has just become a charter captain.”

“Anyone who really wants to learn an area needs to keep a log; a fishing log is the best way to keep track of fish movements and patterns. FishTales logs are by far the best logs I've seen. I’ve been keeping logs on the Mosquito Lagoon for over 20 years, and they are a huge asset to my guide service. I can tell you where the fish are, without ever being on the water. I can look back in my logs to see when reds are in a certain area or when gator trout move onto the flats. All fish have patterns and migrations, a FishTales log will help you keep track of them.It's the best way I know of to improve your catching. Capt. Mike.”

“After ordering several other logs off the internet, and being very unsatisfied with them, I was quite skeptical in doing so again. While scanning the net I ran across the FishTales website and decided to give their “Guides Log” a try. I have been using their FishTales fishing log for over a year now and couldn’t be more happy with my decision. The pages have all the info I need - in order to log and track my fishing trips accurately. This is very important to my guide business, the more accurately logged info is kept will help ensure my customers a pleasant successful trip in the future. Thanks for making a great product for the end user like myself!”

“I received the guide version of your fishing log book and I must say that it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. I had been searching the internet for about two weeks trying to find something to fit the bill. I wanted a log system that didn’t tie me up on the computer, one I could carry in my tow vehicle, and one I could fill out quickly between charters. Your log book does all that and more…Thanks!
