1/2 Day Fishing Trip with my son
Tue, Jun 9, 09   10:00 AM jwmadrid06 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We took the later 1/2 day trip, which left at 10:00 am. We got there early and were the first in line, therefore we got the first choice of fishing spots on the boat. We enjoyed the fishing trip, because it was a beautiful day and we were catching fish. The crew was good, because as soon as fishing died at 1 location we quickly moved to the next spot. We were not disappointed at the catch, although we would have been happier with more fish. The highlite of the trip was when one of the passengers caught a Halibut that weighed in at 27 lbs (biggest I've seen). The 1/2 day trip was just long enough time for me to fish and enjoy the scenery. I would recommend this trip.

Expensive - Dollared me to Death!

The trip was expensive for what you got. The rod rental was extra. And the up-grade was outrageous. 1 Day license, rod, trip, fish bag, plus fish fillet, totaled $70.00.

Crew & Boat were great.

From leaving the dock, to returning our needs were met. The crew was right there for advice, helping to untangle lines and take fish off the hooks. The Capton did all he could by taking us from spot to spot to find fish that would cooperate and bite.

The Galley was good, and the food also good.

I will be back out when the time allows it for me. I will recommend the trip to anyone wanting a great fishing experience. A great day for the kids also.

A good day

The weather was good and the accomodations were good also. The staff was helpful in setting up the proper gear and bait. Although the catch of fish was minimal, there was a grey whale pup that was seen, dolphins, and an awnry sea lion (I expect he was catching fish), All in all a good trip and reasonably priced. I expect to go on another sea fishing adventure this summer when the fish are a little more plentiful.

When individuals from outside California call to make a reservation, please share more information about fishing conditions and how they are different through out the year. Also we were unaware that food would be available on the boat.

A beautiful outing and very helpful crew.

This trip was alot of fun, very relaxing. I enjoyed that the boat took a slower pace traveling out to the fishing site, instead of zipping through the waves to get there. Lots of folks were drinking and I thought beer flowed too easily. Also, there were really too many people for one trip, lines kept getting tangled and there was not enough room to spread out a little, very cramped. I would recommend this company, they were helpful, pleasant and over all-very nice trip.

The staff was friendly open and honest. They warned us about the conditions and when we decided to go anyway they made the best of the situation for us.

This system makes reserving and buying tickets extremely convenient. I would recommend it to all sellers.
