Small crew and boat is better knowing exactly where to go and what is hot.

What a great day on the water. Was visiting my brother and his Finance in Oakland and had urge to do some fishing. Captain James and his Deck Hand were awesome. We went out on a day that was rather windy and rough but that did not stop Captain James from showing us a great time. We caught some halibut at every drift we did but none were keepers (no fault of theirs). Despite the lack of keepers, I cant help but praise Captain James and his Deck Hand. Even though we didnt walk away with any keepers, they made our experience one for the ages. It was a bad day for fishing but we still got action. And even more so, had the best tour of the bay! These guys are legit and I will definitely be on their boat again soon. What a great time!
