DEFINATELY NOT WORTH THE MONEY
Mon, Jan 17, 11   10:00 AM jambini06 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
My friends and I were VERY disappointed. We fished just off the beach from our condo and I have done better fishing in the small ponds where I live. We really should have been informed of just how bad the fishing was before we purchased tickets. Also noted that they kept very small fish in order to make days count look good. No fish over 18 inches were caught for anyone on our boat. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

OKAY

It would have been preferable if there were places to sit. It was hard for us to stand for 5 hours.

Worst Captain Ever
Thu, Oct 28, 10   10:00 AM Dcboss Male 50-59 Local Other
The Captain didn't have a clue where he was going. He didn't bother to ask where the boat had been doing great all week. When he did stop, he gave little information about the location. As soon as the anchor hit bottom, he would be at the rail fishing. That was bad enough, but he would squeeze into a good spot and fly line across others. He also would be smoking while fishing. I had to move on two occasions because of the smoke. My daughter was hung up on a rock with the captain right next to her, but he was two busy fishing to help. When she asked for help, he called a deck hand over to assist her. He acted as if this was his private boat and we were just in his way. Stay away from captain Jack.

Fun but too crowded

It was fun, but the boat was a little too crowded. Too many lines tangling up etc. I would be willing to pay double the price for a boat with half as many anglers on board. If anyone knows of such trips please email me.

Fun day!

My eight year old and I took advantage of the kids fish free deal they had going on Sundays. It was a load of fun but a bit crowded. I guess a good deal is appreciated by more than just myself. The crew was very accomodating, upbeat and helpful. I couldn't have asked for more from them. We're going to be doing it again soon.

Fun Father and Son Adventure
Sun, Sep 5, 10   6:30 AM lennoxes Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
I went on a morning half day with my 11-year old son. We spent the weekend together while mom was away with her girlfriends, so I asked him what he'd like to do..."Fishing!" The crew was friendly and helpful. Lots of fish caught, but most undersized. Still loads of fun. Apparently the cold water is keeping the catch lower than normal, but it didn't detract from our enjoyment. Breakfast is available on board, but I'm not too sure about the cook's kitchen habits...help with the boat, fry some bacon, help with the boat, make a breakfast burrito...you get it.

Great Time

My husband and myself try to go ocean fishing atleast one time a month. Our favorite boat is Sum Fun. We usually catch some fish and the captain and crew is great. Very polite and knowledgeable. I would recommend Dana Wharf Fishing to anyone.

Great Family Day Outing
Thu, Aug 26, 10   10:00 AM khoffman2 Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
We all had a great time on the boat. The crew was very helpful coming to our aid with fishing rods, jammed reels, lost weights and hooks. It was so nice being out on the water and seeing the coastline. In addition we saw wonderful marine life during our trip. We had a great day.
