I done a number of characters a year and have done them since the 90’s ....I took my daughter and her boyfriend’s parents…As well as my son who has fished with since he was 8. My daughter and boy friend and his parents have never done a charter .Cal and Anthony where are crew and made us all feel like important.We didn’t catch a thing but it wasn’t that we weren’t trying….there are days fishing can be unreal ....and then they’re days like to day zero. But that’s why call it fishing….if you’ve never fished before and want an experience…..Get hooked up with Cal & Anthony.

Had an amazing day on the water. Todd and Spencer made the trip, great crew to hang out with for a day on of fishing. Todd asked what we wanted to target, we decided we wanted a trophy fish and were not worried about quantity . He told us up front that it would be some work, and that there is no guarantee that we would land one. This trip was all about a father spending time with his son and maybe catching a fish of a lifetime, although we were not successful with the trophy, the trip was unforgettable Todd and spencer were an amazing crew and worked hard to get us hooked up..The memories are what Made this a very successful day ! We will definitely be back to get our trophy.

Amazing experience and one we thoroughly loved! Boat was fantastic, Captain and Crew were outstanding! Whilst we didn’t get the volume of fish we would have liked we did get the quality in a 40 pound white ghost. Would highly reccommend this charter to anyone…young and old.

Billy and Spencer were great- friendly and understanding.  We were scheduled for a 1/2 day but only fished 3 hours due to a sea sick kid.  Unfortunately we didn’t catch any fish due to the short time our poles were in the water.  The boat was well equipped and nice.  The layout however was just a little tight for 4 people and 2 crew to wander around and fish.  We would definitely schedule another fishing trip and just stay in the bay and fish to help prevent sickness.  It was very enjoyable talking with Billy and Spencer.  Next time we fish with you guys please have a push button princess fishing rod for me not that open face birds nest thing I had.

We had an excellent adventure.  Weather conditions weren’t the greatest for going out onto the ocean because of the wind and ended up fishing in the bay.  Fishing seem to be a bit slow, but missed several bites.  Had an excellent time with Captain Billy and Spencer.  They were fun to hang out with and helped out with the four adults and two kids on the trip.  The experience was amazing.  This was only our second time out on the ocean, and being from a mountain state there was tons of things to look at and experience.

Boat was good, as expected. Capt and deck hand were awesome at teaching us new to the equipment and fishing style. Fished all day and saw tuna surfacing or kelp beds that we hit, but not one bite all day with 5 rods going.

Is what it is. Its called fishing, not catching. Only thing that i could really say negative about the trip was i think they shouldve stocked up on bait before we got there instead of wasting an hour of fishing time waiting at the bait barge….


Like i said, the guys were nice they just didnt get us on fish! Better luck next time i guess!

We went on a half day fishing adventure with Billy and Cal. It was a wonderful experience all the way around. It was our 4 year old daughters first time on a boat and these guys made sure she had a wonderful time, and that we had time to fish as well. She will never forget Cal! It well exceeded our expectations. We can’t wait to book our next trip, the halibut we caught were delish as well!

We have a group of gun-ho fishermen. I set up this trip for our group. We fished one day and landed a blue fin tuna using a kite. That was a 91lbs monster! We were so exited that when we returned to the port we set up another trip with the same crew and boat.
BAM!!
We slaughtered yellow fin tuna! we Landed 7 plumpers and lost 7!!
these weren’t little fish either! big 80+lbs each, WOW! Best day fishing for our group hands down. We strongly recommend these guys if you want a life time experience. Good boat, great crew. We will return for another battle!

I booked this 6 pack boat so I can take out 4 of my best customer’s, so you can imagine how I wanted this trip to be remembered. Fishing started off slow and the reports weren’t very optimistic but still an opportunity to pounce on maybe 1 big Tuna.  Captain Billy was strategic in his approach, he didn’t follow the sea of boats that were congregating together…he had something else in mind.  He targeted a spot away from the boats and that was our spot!  We fought fish for a good 3 hours and at one time, we had 3 rods going at the same time.  We landed 2 Bluefin’s from 70-80lbs and 1 Yellowfin Tuna.  We lost 2 others while fighting for a good while (bummer!) and 2 others were lost just after the initial ‘hook up’.  So there was plenty of action and excitement.  My customers had the fishing experience of their lifetime and we were all exhausted from fighting these big bad boys.  We were fishing with my equipment and the boats.  Unfortunately for us, 2 of my set ups were that hooked fish were Avet/Accurate but they were single speed and on 30 & 60lb test, yikes!  We got a work out on those.  The boat did have really good equipment and 2 speed reels.  It was a great trip and I definitely recommend this boat and crew.  Thanks again, guys.  Hope to visit the waters with you all again.

Great weather, great people, bad fish! The fish were everywhere but they were not biting.
We caught a couple of Dorado for the day but we seen over 50. They would swarm around large patties and the boat throughout the day. On the way back large tuna were jumping everywhere but on our hooks.

We booked last minute. The booking process was seamless. Mr. Cal called me the night before to establish what fish we were targeting so that Captain Billy and Spencer could prepare & customize the trip, which they certainly did. They were great. The highlight of the day was catching a 131 lb Bluefin, using their patented and secret technique which has been very successful this season - book a trip to see it !  For us (as bluefin novices) this was a fish, and an experience, of a lifetime. The crew & equipment were excellent as was the boat.  Spencer also arranged to have the fish processed for us & cut into vacuum sealed 1lb packs which added to the experience.

Being an avid fisherman from Florida I was looking forward to the west coast area. Boy, Captain Eric and Mate Eric did not disappoint. We caught fish all day. Their knowledge of the area made our adventure even better. The boat and all the equipment was first class. If you are even thinking about this trip, make sure you use these guys. They will not disappoint you at all. Thanks guys.

Awesome trip aboard the Tail Blazen with Captain Billy and first mate Spencer. Captain Billy’s extensive knowledge of the sea and Spencer’s exceptional fishing skills created the perfect combination for one EPIC FISHING TRIP! Hooking a big tuna proved to be a challenge but after attempting various methods, we hooked a 100+ pound fish and fought it for an hour before it popped off. The crew handled it like professionals and promised we would not go home without a fish and they did not disapoint. We hooked a 140 pound bluefin on a kite and landed it! Captain Billy and Spencer gave me and my family an experience we will never forget. If want to catch big fish, get on board with captain Billy and Spencer!

We had a great time with Captain Billy and his crew.  I have been on many private charters and this one has by far been the best.  From booking the trip with Cal, who made it so easy to get our fishing license, to the great time we had with Captain Billy and first mate Spencer who were both awesome.  I will definitely be back.
