I promised a fishing trip to my brother and his two young sons as a Christmas gift. I made a special trip from my home in Loon Lake Washington to fulfill my promise. When one of the two nephews became ill the eve of the trip it could have ruined everything but that did not happen. Happily the landing personnel adjusted the one cancelled trip and issued the proper fish licenses and gear in a flash. We were on the boat in minutes and outside the harbor fishing in a few more minutes. My eight year old nephew said after the trip that it was much better than he expected and was ready to go again the next week. He was surprised that there were as many kids on board as adults and to top it off he caught six fish. The three of us caught eight fish but left them to grown a little more. Nice clean, wide beam SUM FUN boat and friendly, helpful crew. Definitely a DO AGAIN outing.

Fishing was interrupted countless times by the pelicans and cormorants that went after our bait. Not really anyone's fault, but completely wrecked what could have been an enjoyable fishing day. If the captain or anyone can figure out how to get rid of the birds, then this fishing trip would be pleasant, and actually fun!

Morning and late afternoon, but not night

Sum Fun was too small a boat and was too crowded. Several people got sick, at night. Then, especially when the boat begins to rock and heave through the swells, sea sickness becomes prevalent since the horizon line is no longer visible. Our last two fishing excursions were on the Dana Pride, a much bigger boat, with half the fishermen. Both of those trips were far more enjoyable.

Caught 30" Halibut

I took one of my Grandsons and Granddaughters fishing on the half day boat " Reel Fun". The crew was a good group of young men that did a great job making sure that everyone on board had a good time. When someone hooked into a larger fish, one of the crew were there to assist if needed. At two different locations, my Grandson hooked into a couple really large fish. Both times one of the crew made sure he had enough room to fight and enjoy his 5 minute battle. The first escaped, but the second turned out to be a 30", Jack Pot Winning, Halibut. Over the years, I've used Dana Point Harbor as our "go to" fishing distention. My Grandson leaves for college today. The "Reel Fun" crew helped create memories I will always cherish...... Thank you.

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.
