I will keep this short and brief…………..Don't Fish This Boat!!!

Here are a couple of items to consider
1) The captain (not Taft) jammed the bow of the boat into the middle of every patty we found. Every patty stop had no more than 1-2 fish.
2) Breakfast I asked for a breakfast sandwich with cheese and bacon. I got a hamburger bun with cheese and bacon. No egg!!! What????
3) I was one of the only people that didn't want my 2 skinny dorados cleaned. They lost my fish!!!!
4) The deck hand cranked all the drags down on all the troll rods and we lost 3/4 of our troll hook-up because they ripped out of the tiny YFT mouths.
5) Bait was horrible and we ran out before the trip was over.

I don't mind getting skunked but I will never fish with these idiots again! Avoid this boat!!!

Doesn't sound fun. Bait isn't captain's fault though. It's been dying early for a few weeks on most boats. Probably the super warm water. Don't be mad about the egg. Takes some work gettin' those gulls to lay 'em!

I fished the SAII 2 years ago and Chuck was the Captain. That was the first and last time. Sounds like nothing has really changed.... just a matter of time before the Legend is a POS just like the SAII.

i was on a boat once and the cook was making bacon cheeseburgers and a guy asked for a blt,the cook already had tomato and lettuce cut up and bacon cooked.He would not give the guy a BLT.He went off an some rant about if one guy gets a fucking BLt then the whole fucking boat would want a BLT.It was food paid per day not ala cart,lol .I know that trip was not bad like yours,i have just seen a few cooks and you wonder wtf.

Almost every boat cook I have met was a little off in some way or another. Years ago there was one on the admiral out of morro bay named cookie that was the best. The first person who bugged him about when breakfast was in the morning was guaranteed to be the last one served.

At least the line on the trolling rod's didn't break. You should of asked for egg's with your breakfast burger. Maybe your 2 skinny do do's got stuck in the fish hold, behind the refrigeration plate's. the bait this year has been either good or bad, Maybe the bait was loaded onto the boat without taking care of it, Like they do their customers. Some so called operators/captains, believe you need to park on top of the paddy (they think the fish are under the paddy). Should I say anymore, His boats have a "Good Reputation" of not having repeat customers. It's all about $$$ for the operation and not customer satisfaction. I hope you learned what boat's not to fish on in the future. Sorry for you'r bad trip.

I actually love fishing on the sea adventure II, it allows me to build up my fishing karma. You don't know what's good till you have it repeatedly bad.
