Great day just no fish

The weather was great...sunny but not hot. However the fishing was cold. The captain commented early in the trip that the wind had really picked up the night before and had dropped the water temperature. He tried several spots without success. Guess I'll just have to go back when the water heats up.

While the fishing was not good the crew, boat and day were great. We are already trying to schedule another trip.

Th entire fishing trip was very well handled. They knew all the questions, and had reasonable, understandable responses to them. Got through the day with no issues at all because the folks that run the activity are so well prepared.

I invited my Great Granddaughter to go fishing (9Yrs. old.) We both had a great time.Your crew were very helpful and actually the other guests were also friendly and helpful. My Great Granddaughter now knows how to bait the hook! She of course would love to go again. Thank you for a wonderful day.

Great Afternoon!!

Had a very enjoyable afternoon of fishing and the deckhands were very helpful. If you got hung up, they would help you get free. And if you broke a line they would get you re-rigged and fishing again. When you caught a fish, they would help you get it un-hooked and measure it to see if it was a keeper, if not they would throw it back or if it was, put in your sack. It was also nice that they would clean and bag your fish as we returned to port. All in all, a very enjoyable afernoon of fishing.

My husband, grandson and myself had a great time even thou we didn't bring any fish home, we had to throw two back because of being under size, we all ejoyed the day. And the crew was great ready to help when they could. We will do it again.

Great Time

My son-in-law and I had a great time on our 5 hour trip. The staff were great and Chris (the Captain) runs a good ship. Everything was clean, the burgers freshly prepared on board were excellent.

Caught plenty of fish, although the big one got away (don't they always??)

Excellent value for money. We will do this at least one's per month.

94th Birthday
Wed, Apr 22, 09   10:00 AM jhlivingston Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
My father-in-law told me that the only thing he wanted for his 94th birthday was to go ocean fishing, so my brother-in-law and I obliged. It was a wonderful day of fishing, and he caught a Sand Bass. The crew was knowledgeable, energetic, polite and helpful, and we look forward to going again on his 95th, if not before. Highly recommend this half day trip. Dana Wharf has a great website, easy to find location and parking, great captains and crews, and a beautiful coastline to enjoy, whether the fish are biting or not!
