Spending a Delightful Day with Grandchildren
Fri, Oct 12, 12   10:00 AM JamesBrawner Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
During our family visit together in San Clemente, my two grandchildren, ages 14 & 17, spent a delightful day aboard the Clemente, fishing for Calico Bass, Sheepshead, and Halibut. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, catching several fish and being comfortably well-treated by the Capitain and First Mate of the Clemente. The boat was well-equipped and well-handled so as to enhance our trip. I would recommend this outing to anyone who enjoys the outdoors and spending quality time with family.

I haven't fished for 30 years. The crew was great -- very helpful (plus good food and drinks at low prices).

The coupon was not easy to redeem so the trip cost me an extra $100. plus with lunch.

Took my grandson (19 yrs. of age) and the weather was a bit cloudy at the start, but the sun came out in the early afternoon. Fishing wasn't great, but most everyone caught fish. We met some nice people from Egypt and helped them with their fishing tackle as they had no saltwater fishing experience. The crew were all extremely helpful and patient with everyone. It was an enjoyable day on the water.

Fishin Fun

Took my grandson (18) on his first ever ocean fishing trip. We were on the Clemente 1/2 day boat. The crew was great helping with tangles and hooked fish. My grandson seems now hooked on fishing saltwater. Said he had a great time. Fishing started off a little slow as we were fishing on the starboard side. Took us 3 rotations before we were near the stern which is the best place to fish, especially if you are anchored and we were. We caught all but 2 of our fish near the stern. We caught maybe 12 fish; a combination of barracuda, calicos and sandbass. We had a very enjoyable time and he can't wait to go again. Only complaint was that we didn't do a rotation for about the first 2 hours on the boat and then did 3 in the last two or so hours. Rotations should have a regular time such as every 30 minutes or so to give everyone a chance to fish some at the stern. First rotation was at the request of a customer. And some SPECIAL fisherman fished the stern the entire time. That should not be allowed!

It was very overcast with two seals following us at every stopr we made. The weather and the seals made for poor fishing, but just getting out with your friends and having a good time is a great way to go. The crew and captain were great. Had a great time.
