Too Bad I Didn't Get To Go.

I won't be using Zerve again. We were going down to visit my in-laws and I had booked the trip for the next morning. Unfortunately, my father-in-law had some heart trouble that night, and after spending all night in the emergency room and his being admitted, obviously I didn't get to go fishing. I called the company and was told about the 'no-reschedule' policy' I understand the need for it, but it did cost me $40. So in the future, while I will still go fishing, I won't be reserving ahead of time. I would rather miss the trip then lose the money in this economy.

The 1/2 day trip was well organized & the deck hands were helpfull. Although there were very few fish caught on this trip...the experince was great. It was my sons first time & he really enjoyed it. We look forward to the next trip.

Great Way to Spend the Day

Getting tickets, license, rod rental, parking, etc. was quick and easy.

Crew was friendly and knowledgable.

Boat was clean and stocked with a variety of baits.

Fellow anglers were friendly and nice - Not the typical rough crowd that is half-in-the-bag by 7:00 am.

Will never use their services again. The captain of our "kids fishing clinic trip" made my nine year old son cry.

I've been on 1/2 day and 3/4 day fishing trips a few times with Dana Wharf Sportfishing, and I've always had a great time. The crew is attentive and helpful, and all the details are always taken care of. I highly recommend Dana Wharf Sportfishing, and look forward to my next outing on one of their boats.

There was no fish to be found, but it was still fun. I'll do it again in the summer.

The spots where we were was hardly any fish to catch. My kid was very sad because he didn't catch anything.

My 9 year old son and I had a blast

This was a Boy Scout outing which began with the free fishing clinic given by the staff - they did a great job working with the kids. Having signed up on Zerve beforehand for the actual 1/2 day trip and rental gear, we were all set up and ready to catch some fish - which is exactly what we did. My son caught 5 fish and is extremely excited about doing this again - soon. The staff in the shop and on the boat were very helpful, friendly, and encouraging. We will most definately do this again very soon.

Reel Fun

First time for me to tryout my sea legs. Booking the trip was a breeze, fifteen min. to get the gear and license and we were on the boat. The crew was great, if the fish were slow on one reef, we were off to the next. Had alot of fun for a winter day of fishing, hope to come back and try to land some yellow fin and halibet later on.
