Reservations got mixed up for a spot on the Cortez limited load overnight leaving the 19th so a scramble for a spot got us on The Sea Adventure II. Bad call. Motored out slow (to save fuel?) down to the upper hidden and worked some paddies. Smaller model dodos and yellows. Patty hopping and trolling and found a spot of mixed fish. Couple of YF hooked and my brother in law lost one at gaff since the deckhands were slow to respond to his calls for gaff. Insult to injury, deckhand dropped the hose and it soaked him. Kinda sketchy operation on deck. Customers told to tag their own fish, bounce fish, slow to feed fresh baits into (kinda awkward) bait tray on the back of the tank. Then....trouble with the bait pump, serpentine belt and we lose electrical. Bait rolled by 12 (not too sparky until then anyway) The (seemingly quite inexperienced) younger captain aimlessly wandered home making only half-hearted attempts to fish on the way home. Slow boat to the harbor (to save gas? Stretch trip to avoid refund?) All in all, the half-off next time ticket offered at the dock with an apology isn't that tempting due to such a poor experience on a sketchy boat. Felt bad for the deckhands/chef trying to do the best they could even though they were clearly exhausted and working for a cheap owner.
