Good time

We came at a bad time of the year for fishing seasons, but still had fun. We caught a few fish, and were treated good. The staff was helpful and always kept busy. I would recommend this service.

ok experience

The crew was friendly and helpful. However, we weren't brought to the best fishing sites. Many people on the boat did not reel in any fish, and those who did catch a few most often had to throw them back because they were too small.

It was cool and I was glad I went, but the cold water was not conducive to catching fish. I think only 5 fish total were caught on the entire boat and only one in our group of 4 and it was a tree fish, haha. I don't even know what that means.

Good trip

Fishing was poor. But I don't think the captain could do anything about it. The boat and gear were clean and organized, the crew was pleasant and helpful. The trip price was very good (1/2 price Tuesdays) and the extras reasonably priced.

This was a 10th birthday present for my grandson. The crew was courteous and helpful, and made the trip very enjoyable. Will recommend Dana Wharf Sportfishing to all my friends.

I went on the fishing boat thinking I was going to catch a lot of fish and big ones but I ended up wasting my time and money. I didn't catch anything. I don't recommend fishing with Dana Wharf.

Slow fishing day

We could not find any fish in that big blue ocean. The fish were not biting for us. We tried several spot according to the captian's fish finder but to no avail.
