I had the best day ever fishing, 11 people on the boat we fished 1/2 day I took my Dad and he caught more fish than me. The boat was very clean and the 2 hands on the boat we very helpful they both helped us from setting up our rigs too getting your fish off the hook and in to your bag.

We didn't catch much in the way of fish (about 3 ounces of rock cod filet after the fish was cleaned!) but it was a fun day nonetheless. The entire haul for the boat was skimpy as well. Bass, Sheephead, Rock Cod. The best part of the trip was that each child under 14 years of age (with paid adult) gets free boat ticket, free rod/reel rental, and that child does not need a fishing license! This was an afternoon 1/2 day trip. I would recommend an early morning trip and possibly a 3/4 day trip if you are serious about catching something a little bigger than I did. I brought my own food, so I don't know how good the food was from the boat galley - but it was less expensive than I thought it would be - meals less than $10.00.

Three of us did this same activity a couple years ago & it was wonderful. There were so many pelicans etc this time that it wasn't nearly as much fun. We probably won't go again because of this.

The size of the fish caught were barely legal. More encouragement by all to conserve and let our sportfish grow larger and more abundant would keep this wonderful sport ongoing.

boat was waayy overbooked. couldnt fish

There were twice as many anglers on the boat as would be a comfortable numner. Bad weather and bad catch was secondary because there wasnt enuff room on the boat to move around. every fish i caught was crossed with 1 or 2 other lines.
