Giant Squid

Should have done the 9 hour; the day went way too quickly. Got to catch giant squid which was such an unusual treat!

I enjoyed the boat and the crew

But....as the boat pulled out the announcement came...the water was too cold and the fishing would be lousy. Would have been nice to have know that before I booked the tickets or drove an hour and half to get there. But that said the crew was very helpful and quick and right on top of things.

This trip was a good deal and the crew was fantastic. Just wasn't the night that the fish were biting. Maybe next time.

Fun for all

Took my family sport fishing and had a great time. We got a bit board staying in the same spot for the whole time. Would have liked to move to a different fishing spot to catch more fish. The crew was very helpful with all aspects of the fishing trip.

It was a hot and fun day onthe boat and my kids had a good time being onthe boat . The sad side was the fishing was not great at all we only cought 1 fish on the trip , which dissapointed my kids and from going on again . so it's good to check the fish reports before you go , to see if the fish are biting .

Always a pleasure

It's always a pleasure to go out on the Twighlight trip with Dana Wharf Sportfishing. 4 hours is a perfect amount of time with children and/or folks trying out fishing for the first time. It's short enough that if it's not working out or you're getting seasick you'll be back soon enough but it's long enough to get some real fishing done. I've done this trip several times now (I think that this was my fourth) and for the first time my son fished the entire time instead of playing with the bait fish in the bait tank for the last part of the trip. He was a fisherman instead of a fisherman's son. We'll be thinking about a longer trip now but will still go out on this once in a while with newbies. The crew is great. The galley is great. You don't have to get up early in the morning to go. I recommend it.
