Holy crap!!!!Atleast he didn't miss the boat this time
The Top Four is indisputable, but definitely ppl can disagree on the rankings. Also rankings change whether fishing the islands or going offshore, bc offshore I would put one of your top two, dead last among the Four.There are only 2 great full day boats in San Diego. The 3rd best is the Liberty and the 4th is the Grande. The one that is usually heavily booked up is the 2nd best. The one that catches the most fish per passenger is the best boat. Everyone knows the top 2 boats so I won't mention them by name.
Your crew and captain are more than likely extremely disappointed on these days as well, and, of course, the ocean does not always provide! You can do all your research and listen to whatever donkeys on here have to say about how good or bad the fishing is. In reality the day you fish can be polar opposite of the day before and so on. I can confidently say that if you ask anyone who’s been around the industry long enough they will tell you there’s been more slow days than good days, and as mentioned before, it makes you more grateful for the good days. I’m done. Stop being a keyboard jerkoff, learn something from it, move on, and don’t bash a capt and crew because you were dealt the short end of the stick.
Very nice of you. Much respect.Sounds like he is just frustrated and I can understand especially since he saved up for the trip. Sucks! One thing I've learned over the years is that the fishy boats don't need to advertise AND they get booked early. The majority of my trips are booked by February or March at the latest. I will occasionally jump on other boats but go just to get fresh air if the fish cooperate its a bonus. I realize this doesn't help much for day trips or overnights but a little research and planning will go a long way towards picking a boat. If it helps, I'm in the San Fernando Valley and I have a fair share of BFT, YT and DODO if you want I'm willing to share send me a PM.
As most of us here won’t hesitate to bust a guy’s chops, many will also be there to lend a helping hand.Very nice of you. Much respect.
They definitely tried, fuel isn't cheap :0After several bad misfortunes, failed attempts i finally was able to save up, get away and book a full day. Unfortunately on whta has to be the worst performing boat that day! i understand catching isnt guaranteed for everyone! But look at the fish counts! for that day Tues Aug 24 2021. Seems like every boat but ours caught $225 Plus for an all day ride! Should have taken a half day,! Even they caught way more fish. No other boats out on the route they chose . 10 min stop at small kelp pattys all day . and riding the rest, hours in between. No lie probably hit up over 10 patties . No bunks! Would have been nice to know. 1-2 fish for full day all boat! Crew was even making excuses before we went out. Already apologizing ,and not guaranateeing any fish? This is supposed to be an experienced capt from a well known landing? 70k fish sonar.... world renowned landing...Seems like they switch capts, just rip people off some slower days during the week? Seems like someone at the landing is taking unsuspecting customers for a ride literally! Way out middle of no were, no other boats out there for a reason. Not biting today ? B.S. Yes even half day had way higher counts. What gets me even more. They have the nerve to post a pic on ther FB page bragging about a dorado catch on that day, come book a trip! Acting like there was lots of action! not telling people thats like everything that got caught on that boat all day. Honestly i dont remember that particular catch? possibly didnt see it brought in . But i dont remember that passenger on that boat in that pic at all? Posted that comment yesterday they havent responded. Feel like a sweet scam ! Fill up a boat of unsuspecting fisherman like me ( dont go out there enough to know which boats are a total waste) Take them for a ride , who cares if they catch anything. I really dont remember that passenger. Am i wrong? they havent responded ? Seems like they switch capts, just rip people off some slower days during the week? While the real ones rest up for the weekends! Must say crew was pleasant and worked there ass off! Feel bad for them no tips from fish cleaning at all . Seemed as bummed out as the whole boat! Seawatch! Watchout! Heard some stories about that landing, didnt want to believe it! Such a dissapointment! What are your thoughts ?
