It was a nice day, but no fish were biting. The staff aboard the boat were friendly and helpful. It was an all-around pleasant experience and plan to go again in the near future.

Holy Mackerel!

Me and my son and his friend had a great evening fishing. While everyone else seemed to snub their noses as the mackeral, we soon realized that with the red tide that set in, nobody was going to catch much if anyting. My son did catch a sheephead (good size). And, people were getting several bites at the bottom, nobody was pulling up much. However, I told my son and his friend to go for the mackeral about 20 feet below the boat. We pulled up fish after fish. Mackerel put up a great fight. Although I was away when they cooked and ate them, they said they were not bad. I think the reason they did not taste any better was because we left too many bones in our filets. We caught about 30 of them so we did not want to pay the $1/fish to have the crew filet them. This would have been nearly the price of another ticket, so we did it ourselves. My hands smelled like fish the entire next day, but good thing I did not have to work. We are not experienced fileters (sp?) so next time if I will invest in a better knife or If I have to work the next day will seriously think about paying the $1/fish to have them fileted. Or, I will simply only keep the big mackerel - there is no size limit.

The crew was great as described in all of the other reviews. They were truly there to help. They were competent, hard working, and friendly.

DanaWharf 1/2 Day Fishing Trip
Wed, Jun 16, 10   10:00 AM MichaelBurke Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
There were 4 of us. Myself (54), my dad (80) and my 2 sons (19) (21). The customer service at Zerve were easy to deal with and made the reservation process seamless. We had a great day of fishing off Dana Point Harbor. The crew on the boat were very helpful in handling the fish caught and answering all questions we had. I would highly recommend Zerve and DanaWarf Harbor for a fun day on the ocean.

Right when we all started to catch fish we had to go. O well had a blast but took home nothing in a group of 5. Thanks for the good time.
