Where are the fish?
Tue, Sep 1, 09   6:30 AM pchargualaf1 Male 50-59 Local Unspecified
Even though I ended up catching the "jackpot" fish and mind you, it was the last fish caught as the skipper was hoisting the anchor, the fishing should have been alot better. We were the last boat out the docks (7:00am) and lost valuable time fishing. We wasted too much time fishing in spots that had no fish. The bait was bigger than the fish we were catching. The skipper should have taken us to the "Kelp Patties" where there are always fish instead of wandering around. Even little fish that can be caught and thrown back will be a thrill for the kids on board this boat. SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE DAYS THAT "A BAD DAY OF FISHING IS BETTER THAN A GOOD DAY AT THE OFFICE". IT IS CALLED FISHING BUT WASTINGN TIME IS NOT MY IDEA OF A GOOD DAY FISHING.

Out of the office-gone fishing

Using Zerve to book our fishing trip was easy and convenient. Location and parking was easily accessible. Received great service at check-in. The "Boat Crew" provided outstanding service. Cold beer and awesome cheese burgers, sun shining and catching fish, what more can a guy ask for?!

I CAUGHT FISH, HAD SOME GOOD CONVERSATIONS WITH FELLOW FISHERMEN & WOMEN, SAW A BEAUTIFUL SUNSET AND A MOON LIT NIGHT, BUT WHEN THE WIND PICKED UP IT GOT A LITTLE ROUGH AND SOME FOLKS LOOKED LIKE THEY JUST GOT OFF OF THE TILT-A- WHIRL AFTER EATING TO MUCH COTTON CANDY....

good day of fishing

Met my youngest son, three of this friends at Dana Point went on a 1/2 day boat. Everyone on the boat caught sand, calico bass, short barracuda and one nice halibut. The captain and boat hands were extremely courteous and helpful in assisting the fishermen in retying hooks, removing fish, bagging them, untangling line snags and cleaning the fish. Great 1/2 day boat for all.

Leave Late back on Time

I found it odd that when reading the daily catchs on line that it shows a great deal of fish being caught, but then on the boat few fish were caught and the captain made a statement that it has really been slow lately! Another statement from the captain made while sitting at the dock was "we are running late this morning" everyone on the boat paid for 5 hours of fishing and we were all cut short. We left late and arrived back on time. To make things worse not very many fish were caught and condition were good.
