Crew was very nice and helpful. Fishing was very poor. Only 3 real (keeper) fish caught by entire group of 50-60 people, and they were small. My son did catch 3 mackerels that we threw back. Since it was his first fishing trip, he thought it was pretty cool. I'm not a fisherman and thought the trip got to be a little long. Boat moved quite a bit to find fish, but there wasn't much out there. Food on board was decent and inexpensive.

4 hours is plenty of fishing for me. Boat caught a lot of fish. Crew was very good and took care of everyone very quickly when they brought a fish on board.

It was a very bad day for fishing. Weather was perfect but the fish was not hungry.

Crew makes it happen.

The only complaint I have about my trip on 6/24/2013 is that they did not rotate fishermen back to the stern. Since most of the fish were caught back at the stern, rotating would have been good. nevertheless, the two largest bass landed were caught on the port side. Fish volume however, was at the stern. This crew was light years ahead of the crew we had last year at Davey's Locker in Newport Beach. Go with Dana Wharf if you have a choice. It does not matter how many fish you catch if the crew is great. And the crew is great at Dana Wharf.

Our group had mix of locals and vacationers. We saw several sharks, barracudas and a mix of fish we had never seen being caught and some released. The staff was very nice and helpful which made it easy to ask questions and get assistance. We had a light windbreaker,could have used heavier coat.

Fun evening... my 10 yo loved it!

My 10 yo son Grant and I have been talking about going fishing for months and we decided to give this boat a go. Although the fish weren't jumping onto the deck for us, we did manage to catch one. Grant had as much fun baiting the hook with the available calamari as fishing I think. The crew was very friendly and the others on board equally receptive to conversation. Really enjoyed meeting Isaac. Had some interesting stories to share. We will return another day for the day trip to Catalina. Thanks, Rob

Only 1 person on the boat caught a legal size fish

It was fun to go out on the boat. However, only one person caught a single (1) fish of legal size. The boat took us to five or six different places where the captain thought there might be fish to catch. . . . nothing! My brother was visiting and I thought fishing would be fun since we hadn't fished together in over 30 years. What a big disappointment.
