I have a great time every time I take the half day trip. Next time I am thinking about springing for the 3/4 day jaunt. The captain found the fish, I caught them, and the crew cleaned them. What more could you ask for from a 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 .

Fine for locals with their own tackle

We participated in the 1/2 trip from 12-5pm and unfortuanetly it was an uneventful day. We had a group of about 9 in our party out of 25 total on the boat and the fishing was very poor. The boat seemed to cater to the everyday locals that had special tackle that allowed them to fish near the surface in the large kelp beds we were parked next too. The 3 fish that were caught (Small bass) in the 5 hour trip were caught by these locals using their specialized tackle. The other 95% of the boat was using pole/tackle rentals and forced to fish off the bottom catching absolutely nothing.

At least we got 5 hours of sun.

Perfect day on the water, BUT no fish!

Crew and Captain was great and helpful.

Ended up fishing 3 or 4 different spots with only a few fish catching live mackeral on cut squid.

Pelican's were a pest!

Weather and water was perfect conditions, but fish were not biting. If I visit the area again (from N. Cali) I will definetely use this charter again.

Thanks

I was disappointed in that the fishing was poor and I thought that at those spots where we encountered seals and sel lions that we ought to have moved, for my experience, althought it is alaska, tells me that when you are in the company of seals and sea lions, the fish are no where to be found.

As a newcomer to your area, it would also have helped perhaps to give us an idea of where you were going to fish.

You cant do much about those days when the fishing is poor, so take my thought with a grain of salt.

packed boat

The boat was over packed I think with around 50 fisherman. The fishing was very poor, but this is not due the the crew tring to find the fish they tried very hard to find the fish moving serveral times. The main issue was the fast moving current and people not following there lines. The breakfast Burrito was very good.
