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

The fishing was OK but the boat was too crowded.

They shouldn't sell out the entire boat. It was way too full and we spent LITERALLY half the time on boat untangling our lines. It really took away from the fun of fishing. The crew kept cutting our lines to help untangle the messes and I lost 4 hooks and weights rigs because of that and then had to take the time to rig a new setup on my pole every time. I also lost several fish due to the tangled lines mess on board. There were several people who just refused to rotate when the captain called for everyone to rotate to the right. Those people just forced their way in between our numbers and refused to move. The crew didn't do anything about it. All in all it was a disastrous outing.

The Captain worked hard to find fish and the crew was very helpful to all the anglers. Our overall fishing experience was both fun and relaxing.

First So. Cal party boat trip
Mon, Mar 9, 15   10:00 AM T8ter1 Male 60-69 Local Unspecified
Crew was great! Fish I caught were small, but that's okay with me for this close to shore type of deal. Has got to be a lot pressure on the Calicos as heavy as they are fished here. If you are interested in a fun day on the water and don't care about a trophy or a bunch of meat for the table this is you trip.
