Boat crew were professional & courteous but this outfit's fishing service was disappointingly poor and pricing practices boarder on deceitful. Total value was very low and a waste of time and $$. Would not recommend this outfitter and will not return.

The prices were posted on the flyer on the counter, but they were apparently higher when we went to book. This place nickels and dimes you for everything. A burlap bag (that they keep) to keep your fish in costs $2!? That is ridiculous. What is my 40 dollar fee for? Also, they let way, way too many people on... More

I went out with Nov 19 for a 1/2 day in the afternoon. Everyone on the boat was catching good sized rockfish and the sorts. However I had a 30lb yellow tail hit the line and what a fight it was to get onboard. Matt (deckhand) did a great job helping me through the fight and did an even better... More

We had a great day fishing...caught seven keepers and probably threw half a dozen more back. The crew was friendly and helpful - got all rods rigged up well, gave sound advice and most importantly, didn't lose any fish. Only downside was the half day trip cost double the advertised price once you add in rod rental, tackle and one... More

In summary, when these guys find the fish, you will have a great day but customers just pay the wages, and aren't really important after that. I've been out on the Patriot before and it was a bit better last year. I guess it makes a difference going out at the start of the season, or the end of it.... More

I had a great time on the 3/4 day trip. The Captain was very knowledgeable and gave us more time as the fish were really biting. Everyone everyone scored yellowtail +20 pounds. Highly recommended.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The weather was perfect and the fishing was good. I usually don't write reviews. My group of three was told we needed to buy packages of tackles. During the fishing outing we only used one package. After the trip Newport Landing refused allow me to return the tackle bags. They were not even... More

Working for the largest non-profit in Orange County, we have partnered with this company for many fundraising events, especially our Gala and Golf Tournament offering promotion for the company in our auctions. I recommended this company to my boyfriend to take his 8yr old son out. Unfortunately he had to cancel due to a family emergency and was told it... More
