The crew made the trip an enjoyable fishing experience. They were quickly on the spot to help you bring the fish aboard and take it off your hook.

This trip was with my son and his son. All were first timers on a commercial sport fishing boat. We rented poles. It seems the most success by others was with spoons or lures. The live anchovies were mainly eaten by the seals and pelicans. A suggestion to those renting equipment that maybe different types of bait (lures,etc.) might increase the catching would be appreciated. After all, persons renting equipment must be novices otherwise they would already have what is needed.

The boat was fine, very clean and the galley and prepared breakfast sandwiches were very good and reasonably priced, which is appreciated. We enjoyed the experience and will do it again. But first I will need to get my own lures etc.

The crew was fine and provided help when asked.

The fishing was not as good as we expected , but that is fishing!!!! We had a good time and my grandson was very excited. He lives in your area and I'm sure that he will be back to fish with you again and soon. The crew did a great job of tending to the needs of the fishermen. I would have no problem with going on your trip again.

Thought it was costly since there were very few fish caught. Should have gone to a few more spots.

Nice early winter ocean fishing trip

The weather was nice warm, sunny and the ocean calm. Since the time on my yearly license is running out, I decided to go fishing. Dana Wharf is a very clean and friendly landing to go out of. The fishing was a little slow due to the number of cormorants and large sea lions that came around the boat once we started to fish and chum was thrown out. The fish would bite until the birds and sea lions came around. Skipper on the Clemente tried hard to find a good spot. Caught fish but released most of them. Ended up with two legal sand bass and two sheephead..

My daughter and I booked 1/2 day fishing. I had gone myself 5 years earlier and remember the crew being a tremendous asset. Well it wasn't a fluke! These crewmembers love what they do and it shows. They make sure you have a fantastic experience no matter your level of fishing experience. We had a BLAST and between the 2 of us caught about 35 fish. I'm coming get back in 6 months and doing this again. Boat is well kept and roomy. Food in the galley is fresh made and reasonable! Don't miss this experience!!!
