Yellowtail, sheephead, sculpin, calico bass and more came over the rail as the crew from the mid-west got their first taste of saltwater fishing.

“It was a great experience to get my family from Iowa out to the West Coast and get a first-hand experience of what SoCal saltwater fishing looks like,” said Jake.  “We caught some fish lost some fish, drank a lot of beer and it was a fun day out on the water. Big thanks to Capt. Ray Summers for helping these Iowa guys get on some fish!”

Rodney said “It was a pleasure and honor to be part of a family trip like that. Captain Ray and his crew were so knowledgeable and they’re always eager to help out with fishing knots, gear, line, hooks, everything you can think of on a trip like that…oh and on a side note, be careful of dogs…”
