Well organized, enjoyable venture. Fishing slow (that's fishing), but weather outstanding. Deck hands good. Captain worked to find fish. Take pleanty of sinkers and hooks. I took my grandson (13). He caught one fish and had fun. On 1/2 price night, get there early as it gets busy if you need to rent rods. Zerve people very friendly and helpful.

My great grandson (age 10) and I caught a lot of fish (although they were all too small to keep) and we had fun. It will be a day to be remembered by both of us. Good trip for a first timer.

The crew made the trip an enjoyable fishing experience. They were quickly on the spot to help you bring the fish aboard and take it off your hook.

This trip was with my son and his son. All were first timers on a commercial sport fishing boat. We rented poles. It seems the most success by others was with spoons or lures. The live anchovies were mainly eaten by the seals and pelicans. A suggestion to those renting equipment that maybe different types of bait (lures,etc.) might increase the catching would be appreciated. After all, persons renting equipment must be novices otherwise they would already have what is needed. The boat was fine, very clean and the galley and prepared breakfast sandwiches were very good and reasonably priced, which is appreciated. We enjoyed the experience and will do it again. But first I will need to get my own lures etc. The crew was fine and provided help when asked.

The fishing was not as good as we expected , but that is fishing!!!! We had a good time and my grandson was very excited. He lives in your area and I'm sure that he will be back to fish with you again and soon. The crew did a great job of tending to the needs of the fishermen. I would have no problem with going on your trip again.

Pricey

Thought it was costly since there were very few fish caught. Should have gone to a few more spots.

Our group of 3 adullts and 3 children had a terrfic time on each of the trips . The two morning trips were by far the most fun because we caught more fish...afternoon trip was very windy. The crews on each trip were helpful and attentive and made for an overall fun experience.

First time for my husband & son; only second time on ocean fishing trip for me. First time at age 12 was sea sick whole trip. So this trip was wonderful. Husband & I prepared with dramamine. Son got seasick but crew was very helpful. Fishing was a blast...Captain & Crew were great! Food from the galley was reasonable in price & taste good!Only down side was not many "keepers". Will definitely go back!

Good fishing. Excellent crew.

The calico bass were biting immediately on bait. Small barracuda and mackerel joined the bite later. We were fishing about 10 minutes from the jetty so we had a very short boat ride. Many of the fish were undersize(most 12 to 13 3/4 inches) but were a lot of fun. The crew was excellent. They were there to answer any questions, give helpful hints, and remove any fish from our hooks. It was an excellent trip!
