Enjoyed the day and the crew was helpful

I was disappointed in that the fishing was poor and I thought that at those spots where we encountered seals and sel lions that we ought to have moved, for my experience, althought it is alaska, tells me that when you are in the company of seals and sea lions, the fish are no where to be found. As a newcomer to your area, it would also have helped perhaps to give us an idea of where you were going to fish. You cant do much about those days when the fishing is poor, so take my thought with a grain of salt. Paul Costello Fairbanks

First Time Out

This was my first time ever at deep sea fishing. The crew where encougaging and reassuring. I caught four fish, threw 3 back and enjoyed one for dinner, with leftovers to freeze. It was a very fun experience and I recommend it.

A friend and I decided to go out on a 1/2 day boat. Weather was great, the fish were biting quite well. All in all, we enjoyed it a lot and plan to go again on a regular basis. The crew was very helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend.

Reel Fun

The experience on the ocean was much enjoyed. It was fun doing catch and release for the mackeral we caught and a nice day just to relax. However, for serious fishermen, the opportunity to catch the big fish (durado, yellowtail) was not there.

Too Crowded on Tuesdays

The price was great. The fishing wasn't good on the day I went. I only caught two tiny Sculpin. The boat was way too crowded. I would not suggest going on 1/2 price Tuesdays.

Outstanding Family-Friendly Fishing Trip
Wed, Jul 30, 08   6:30 AM Richard_Lyon Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Three generations of my family participated and all caught multiple fish. Crew was extremely helpful and provided special attention to kids with backlashes. Boat wasn't crowded and there was ample room to minimze tangles. Affordable, professional and clean. Professional filleting of fish was only $1 per fish. Healthy environment for families with children. 5 hours was plenty of time and the captain picked 3 good locations. Would definitely do it again! (Perhaps the all-day or Catalina)

Great Grandkid Outing
Tue, Jul 22, 08   6:30 AM craigwilhelm Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I took my 4 grandkids from Seattle. (ages 12-16). The first spot had minimal fish, then the captain moved the boat and it was GREAT FISHING. The kids had a phenomenal time and I am nominated for Grand Parent of the Year. The deck hands were right there when we needed them everything from tangled lines to taking the fish off. THEY made it truly enjoyable.

The fish were delicious. Only thing we could think to improve the trip would be some benchs around to sit on. Long day to just stand. All in all GREAT DAY

A Great Day Fishing
Thu, Jul 10, 08   6:30 AM FredtheGent Male 60-69 Local Individual
Never been out of Dana Point before, but will highly recommend using them again. Checked in with out any problems and waited in line to board. Once aboard the crew was extreamly helpful and polite. Once we arrived at the spot the captain decided we should fish from. We droped anchor and imediately brgan to catch fish. Even when I brought the fish aboard the crew was quick to remove the hook and get me back in the water. He also placed my fish in the gunny shack provided by the boat. The gunny sack was only 1 dollar, but the best dollar I'll ever spend, as amatter of fact the price of the 1/2 day boat was the best fishing for the price you will ever receive. Everybody on the trip was pleasent and fun to be around Thank's Fred E Stepp Surfside Ca
