Great time with an excellent crew

My 12 year old son and I had a great time on the 1/2 day trip. As we are both beginners , the crew helps us with all the tasks and shows what to do. The galley provided good food and the cabin and top deck seating was comfortable and with a good view. The other people on the boat were all friendly and we all worked as a team. Even though we did not catch any fish we had a great time. I not only would recommend this outfit, but will go out on another 1/2 day trip next time we are at Doheny State Beach and Dana Wharf.

Dana Wharf Sportsfishing

Had a good day. Caught 8 rock cod. The skipper and crew of 'Reel Fun' were very helpful and social with the fishermen and children on the charter.

Terrific day with grandson. Never dull!

The crew was lot of fun and always available to help untangle lines, remove fish from hooks, and share tips. Dolphins followed the wake, gulls and pelicans were never far, sailboats were whipping nearby, a tall ship was seen at a distance and paddle boarders and surfers were closer to shore. Hayden, our 8 year old grandson caught a rockfish and we all agreed to return when the water was warmer.

Experience of a lifetime

Took our 8 year old grand daughter and her dad out (curious to see what a "giant squid" was all about). Sea was rough. It was windy and cold. Everything was against our adventure, but it was a resounding success. Captain and crew were gracious hosts. People were friendly and helpful (we obviously were new to squid fishing). We had a wonderful time despite all that was working against us. Planning on taking other grand kids out as opportunities arise from year to year. Enjoyed the squid fillets the next night for dinner. Affordable family experience.

We had rough seas and cold weather but captain and crew made sure everyone caught squid and had a great time. Awesome experience and a great value on the price.

Zerve provides a convenient way to book fishing

Using Zerve eliminates the need to stand in line to procure tickets. I don't have to worry about not being able to get tickets because I'm quaranteed a spot on the boat as soon as I book.

Recommended Twilight Fishing Trip

Although the fishing was slow, the crew was very good. They helped us try different combinations to improve our chances. Twilight in the ocean was beautiful, and so was the sunset.

Everything is great except there are no fish.

Didn't even get one bite. Boat and crew are for the most part ok. But judging by what was caught by all of the fishers on the boat this area is over-fished. Have been out about 6 times over last 15 years and the most I caught was 4 fish on one outing.
