Left the dock 30 minutes late. Returned 45 minutes early. Crew was lazy and unhelpful. Last stop to fish was just outside of harbor entrance, coincidently.

Not for those with a weak stomach. I saw a lot more vomit than squid, and the small children suffered dearly with the cold and the sea sickness.

Tail End of Storm Yields Creepy Catch

It was pouring down rain on the drive down to the dock but we brought rain gear so no problem. The folks at the counter were very helpful processing our reservation and getting our rental gear. By the time we boarded the Clemente, the rain had stopped and the clouds were thinning out. The captain and crew were very considerate and helpful, explaining what to expect and even helping my teenage daughters rig up for giant squid. On the ride out, the 4 to 5 foot swells were pitching the boat pretty vigorously. Half a dozen people or so looked pretty green! Eleven squid up to 40 lbs. were boated, then we headed in as a moderate wind was threatening to turn nasty. The exiting storm revealed a crystal clear view of the coast accented with all the lights and framed by the stars from Newport all the way down past San Clemente. It was worth the money just for the gorgeous view. Unfortunately, the whole trip was marred by someone who stole my brother-in-laws' squid fillets! I guess someone who probably didn't catch anything felt like they needed to bring something back by stealing someone else's catch. I think someone was also stealing those large squid jigs on the way back as well...maybe the same? Watch your gear closely folks!

Squid kinda slow now

The squid were not biting as hard as other years. I like the $25 price for the squid only boats. No screwing around with other fish. Just go get the squid and come home. I'll try again if the squid are still around.

Went on the Twilight Giant Squid Fishing Trip aboard the Dana Pride. Wide open on the giant squids. The crew did a spectacular job assisting us with getting the squids onto the boat. Very friendly, hepful and efficient. I will definitley go back on this boat!

Twilight Squid Fishing was a bit crowded but the crew did their best to service everyone.
