off-shore fishing

large fishing trawler (30 people ) gets you out on the water for a good five hours of fishing, even though the catch at this time of year is not very good. Well worth the value.

i was hoping to catch more fish on this trip. this being my first time for this trip, i realize that my inexperience may have had some part in my lack of great success. also, i know that there was limited time with only a five hour trip time . i really believe that those who frequent the ocean in boats probably know where to go for better success. i have an idea that our trip may have been made more successful with a bit more dedication to providing a successful fishing trip. not only i, but most others no board were only marginally succesful on this trip. i did have a nice trip, without rough waters, and the scenery along the coastline is a positive aspect . my daughter and son-in-law seemed to enjoy the trip. the crew seemed adequately trained and we were kept informed of the overall entent of the captain's course of action, when and where to drop our lines and the depth we were fishing. also helpful was the fact that the crew on board knwe the fish species and the regulations. i have limited knowledge regarding the local fish species, what is good to keep ( not that that affected my catch ) and the size limits for the lower ca. oceanic waters .

Clean, well run fishing boat. The action was about as expected for a winter day on a half day run.

Had great fun, as always.

The trip was fun - this is the 3rd time my Grandson and I have done it. We didn't catch mayn fish - 8 between the two of us - but we had a good time. One recommendation is that the crew needs to be more friendly. They were way to serious. I know they do this every day but we don't. They need to be part of making this fun. One other thing is it would be niece to have a poster to see what types of fish we might be catching. I am from the Northeast so I am not familiar with the local species. But, all in all, we had a fun day. Thanks.

the boat was full and no place to stand and fish, the current made all the robs and fish rods to interfere tons of wasted time, was bad fishing experience, close to the shore and no good preparation for that kind of crowed

great family adventure

Great value, outdoor, educational, challenge and friendly family competition. We had a good trip, bait was too small, deck hands were preoccupied with their own fishing, but it was. A twilight trip. 5 hrs total time on the boat. If you have some experience you can have a good time, but don't expect too much help if you do not. You will catch fish, and it is quite satisfying to have done it on your own.
