Had a great time on the water. Was my first time and my husband's first time in many years. The deck hands were all awesome! We will do it again for sure!

Excellent, Crew and Boat

Couldn't ask for better crew for a short, twilight trip out on the kelp beds. They worked hard to help you fish, find fish and keep everyone happy. Can't beat it for the price!

Fishing with the boys!

The boat denatured on time and the staff and Captain were very cordial and helpful. When the fishing was a bit slower than anticipated, the captain picked up and moved to a hot spot. seems the best fishing was the first two spots while the last spot was only so so, most probably due to the change in tide. Overall a worthwhile trip and I would recommend.

Great time with friends

Fishing with friends is always fun. But actually catching fish takes it to the next level. The warm waters have renewed the fishing industry. We even got to see a rare Black Sea Bass that must have been over a hundred pounds! No kidding. I have a video to prove :-). Captain and crew were courteous and professional on the Sum Fun. Would be willing to go again.

Need more Staffing (guidance)

It seems all the focus from the on-board staff is geared for experienced fisherman.

The staff fish while your "paying" for their enjoyment. They are far more experienced than us regular fisherman so having their help and guidance would be a better use of time.

My seven year old came deep sea fishing with me for the first time and caught two Bonita. My 16 year old won the jackpot. We had a great time.

Great 1/2 day fishing trip on the "Sum Fun"
Wed, Aug 26, 15   6:30 AM tjallison Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
This trip was a lot of fun. I got the second yellow tail I ever caught in my life on this trip and the crew were very helpful in helping me land this fish. The deck hands and captain gave great advice as to what to do and when to do it. The fish weighed 26 pounds and took about 15 to 20 minutes to get it in. Deckhand and the captain were right next to me the entire time. They were very helpful all throughout the trip with all the passengers young and old. I highly recommend the "Sum Fun" for your next fishing trip.

Okay overall

On time. Took us to good fishing spots. On the downside, too stuffy. The lines kept getting tangled. They should perhaps take fewer people on the boat.

Boat was basically shut out...

The crew was nice enough but, over the course of 5 hours, I would be surprised if there were more than two legal fish caught by the 100 anglers. I suppose we will study the fishing reports before spending our money next time.
