This was so much fun. I was a first timer and caught my limit no problem. If you dont have sea legs start taking dramamine the day before. It helped me.

Thank you for the nice review. Glad we have you HOOKED on fishing now. Scopolamine patches work really well, but you have to get a prescription from your doctor. Just FYI....... July, Aug and Sept the ocean is much calmer.

Went out on veteran’s day. Half price for vets. Thank you. The crew is super nice and the captain gets involved just like the rest of deck hands. Relaxed and enjoyable. Killed it on fishing. Boat limited out 2 hours early. See you again soon.More

Thank you very much. We appreciate the nice review. Come on back later in the summer when the BIG Lingcod come in close to spawn. We do a lot more "catching" then. Have a great day.
