Good time but be prepared

This was a good time but be prepared -- the rods and reels that you rent (separate fee) are of poor quality and not typical of a deep sea fishing trip in FL. Caught some nice bass and yellow-tail

The twilight fishing trip was overall a good experience. The staff is friendly and helpful. However for family with small children the boat is smaller than expected. I am willing to pay more per person if we can go on bigger boat with some cabin seating. More description and pictures of the boat provided on the website would be helpful.

Good experience and the staff was very professional...but the areas we went to were very overfished, and though we caught some fish, we actually faired better simply fishing from the pier

Took my daughter on a half and as always ,,, had a gear time! Captain and his staff are always there to help when you need it! My goal is to teach my daughter so that when she is ready we can go out on a tuna trip. Dana Wharfs makes it easy!

The Twilight Fishing Trip at Dana Wharf Sportfishing was exactly what we expected as first time sportfisherpeople. We had fun, saw some beautiful scenery and even caught some fish! The Captain of the boat did a great job finding a rewarding place to fish and the crew was extremely helpful! Thanks for the great experience!

1/2 day trip spent most time boating around
Mon, Jul 14  12:00 PM schroederrc Male 40-49 Local Family Without Children
1/2 day trip spent most time boating around trying to find yellow fin tuna, with very little fishing. Finally towards the end of the day, the captain found some and several were landed. Lucky that saved the day. I would have complained otherwise as 1/2 day fishing trip should be at least 3 to 3.5 hours of fishing not approx. 1 hour.
