action was fairly good. whenever the action slowed the Captain moved the boat. only negative thing was the damn birds & sealions that constantly harass your bait and hooked fish. other then that a fun trip

There was little or no management of the guests.

After taking an open spot on the port side we were invaded by roving young fisherman who managed to tangle up lines with abandon. We spent most of the morning on the port side until the captain decided at the last stop to rotate. WE spent the rest of the morning - 1/2 hour? - fishing from the starboard side. Never made it to the stern where most of the large fish were caught.

No rotation

It would have been good if they would rotate everyone at least twice during this time so everyone fishes from a different portion of boat. In fishing in bow bait was very limited.

I booked for a 3/4 day trip, 1/2 hour before departure an E-mail was send, the boat was full.

Given a choise to go on a 1/2 day boat was taken,

Boat left 15 minutes late and returned 1/2 an hour early. boat stayed at a place no action too long.

Hardly any fish of legal size. It was a lousy bad exsperience

I am never go on another 1/2 day boat out of Dana Point again.
