Nice boat and crew - few fish caught

Friendly captain and crew. Captain gave a seminar before the trip for children. Well done. My son really enjoyed. The boat was nice and the crew were friendly and helpful. Had a good time. There weren't many fish caught, but I guess it was because of the season and water temperature. Will definitely go with them on another fishing trip, but will wait until the weather and water temperature improves.

My son is 11 and this was both of out first times sea fishing. The crew was wonderful when it came to showing us how to bait and weight the hooks. We were able to provide some Sea Bass for dinner. Also had one of the best burgers ever on board the boat.

The crew and staff of the reel fun are super cool, go during the week when the boat is not so full. The deck hands were attentive and really helped out. They really know how to treat their customers unlike Davies Locker in Newport. We're going again!

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..
