We really like this place compared to Newport Landing and Davey's Locker - more friendly, less crowded

Farther Out to Sea

I had a great time cuz I won the jackpot, but my three kids and my friend ONLY caught mackerel. I'm sure you hear this from everyone, but too many people on boat. Also if we could have gone straight out farther instead of parallel to the shore I think we would have gotten more than mackerel and a handful of small bass. We were on a half day trip and the crew as usual were extremely nice and helpful. I'm sure my opinion doesn't really count, but we go out at least once a season and it's always the same, not much caught from the entire boat! Little tiny fish and very few.

great day on the water

Perfect day to get out on the water on 'Reel Fun'. Sunny and warm, swell was minimal and super glassy conditions. We hit 5 different reefs with good 'hook ups' on all. Good variety of small to mid-sized fish. Deck hands were awesome. On it under every situation. A few reckless casting nut jobs could have used some pushback from the crew. But overall day was perfect. Thanks fellas!

These guys have a passion for fishing! They go above and beyond so you catch fish. The food was good too! An extra bonus!

Crew was stellar and always ready when we needed help. We saw a whale, dolphins, sea lions. Fished at three spots...last stop was the best. Friendly guests...we ended up taking home 8 donated fish! Great time

The fish weren't biting much. The deck hands could have been more help to the novce fisher man. Not sure I will return.

The crew was very attentive to everyone on the boat and excursion. They were very accessible and helpful with repairing broken lines to helping all with catching fish. I highly recommend this charter service.

I was a little skeptical to book a trip on the pacific coast on a bigger boat with 20+ other strangers. Past experiences on other large fishing boats have been very disappointing. After talking to some locals, they assured me this was different and they were so right! The price was extremely reasonable, the captain & mates very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and everyone caught fish! I highly recommend fishing with them and if I get back to the Orange County area, I will certainly book again!
