It was my first time fishing the ocean or even being on the ocean in a boat. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. Even though I only caught one fish it wasn’t their fault. Everyone around me was catching fish. They put us on fish and told us how to do it, what to feel for, took the fish off for us. It was a good time.

Great fishing trip!!!

This was a great trip for my mom and I. The price was good @ $40. They provided all the bait and tackle. They also provided a large ice chest for you to bring your drinks and lunch. Clay, part of the crew, was excellent. He seemed to be in several places at one time. He was always there when you needed anything, whether getting the fish off, baiting the hook or untangling the line. The captain made sure the boat was always over the schools of fish for the optimum chance of getting your catch for the day. They marked your fish and kept them in a cooler, then at the end of the trip, identified your fish and processed them. I've fished several different places and used different companies. I think this was one of my favorites.

Will add to my MUST DO list for out of town visitors

The boat ride out to the drifting spot was worth the price of admission by itself. The captain and crew worked very hard to try to get as many people to catch something with good amount of moving the boat location and constantly changing the bait. The initial instruction on how to use the reel was done in such a way as to not make us greenhorns feel like we were in kindergarten. Will definitely add this to my standard list of fun things to do when visitors come to town.
