What a great day.  Booked this trip in the bay for my two sons first Salt water fishing experience and it was a huge hit.  Captain Bob was patient, knowledgeable and good company on the water.  He had us catching fish almost right out of the gate and we really did not have much of a lull in the action.    With the boys spin casting and me fly fishing, there were more than a few double hookups.  If I ever get a chance to fish in San Diego again I know who I will want to book with and I highly recommend his services.
Thanks for an excellent day Captian Bob.

The main purpose for me booking this trip was to get my grandson out fishing and hopefully have him catch a few fish.  Keeping the fish and having them for a meal was definitely not a goal, so the catch and release format was perfect. Captain Day was excellent!  He worked with my grandson teaching him casting techniques, explaining the “why’s” of what we were doing and he was able to catch alot of fish.  I would definitely recommend Captain Day.

Thanks very much John.  Sam is a great human being and a very good little fisherman.  I know you are a proud grandfather.  Pretty cool seeing the bonita boiling at the launch ramp, too bad we could not get him hooked up.  I hope we can fish together again soon.

My husband and his father spent the morning with Captain Bob, they had so much fun catching fish and they said Bob was good company! When I booked I thought they would be going farther out and catching huge fish, if that’s what you’re expecting this isn’t it. But they had a really great experience, caught a lot of fish and were not disappointed!
Bob was even nice enough to give them a ride afterward, I’m sure that’s not a service he typically offers so don’t expect it but it was very kind of him!
