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!!!

Too many people on the boat.

For starters,upon first entering the galley there was a crewman with a shaved head and the start of what looked like a handle bar moustache behind the counter. He promptly reached in his mouth and removed a rather sizable "chaw" with his fingers and threw it in the trash. Upon completion of his "chaw" removal he wiped his hands with a paper towel and proceeded to prepare the morning menu. It was at this point that I opted not to eat on the boat. Watching and noticing the hired help is one of the pitfalls of a performance kitchen and when it comes to food you can't be too hygenic. Very off putting, and an image that was burned into my very being.

Good but deckhand had disrespectful attitude

We had a very enjoyable time on the afternoon half day boat except for the young deckhand who was rude and disrespectful to us. He shouted at us four times in a row for not keeping our small bass in the air and not landing on the deck, and he also disregarded our request to keep the fish heads(we use for soup) we requested at cleaning casting them overboard.

It was a very nice experience...Probably because there was only 15 people on the boat.

Great times with your grandson

Great to see how your grandchild experiences how to fish. Most people refer to it as, on the job training. The deck help were quick to help in setting up your reel and helping in anyway they could and were polite.

I had fun. Crew and captain were awesome. Very helpful getting anything my daughter or I needed they were right there ready to assist. Didn't take very long to start fishing caught some fish too small to keep but still almost everyone Vought something. Will be going on the full day next time
