Went fishing on Saturday, December 24, 2016

I found Fin Reapers and they came highly recommended from a few of my good sports fishing friends. I haven’t been sports fishing to many times and the staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.

We left from Mission Bay in San Diego and Chartered to just off the Coronado Islands in Mexico. I made a few big catches, it really seems that they really knew where to go to the best spots for fishing.

We definitely where not disappointed and have already planned our 2nd trip with a few friends.

Went fishing on Sunday, July 10, 2016

We booked a full day trip for our family. We caught our tuna limit!  Wow!  All 6 of us caught fish which made for a very happy mood.

The Captain JR and his deckhand Joel completely exceeded our expectations. Couldn’t imagine anyone else providing us with a more enjoyable experience.

Thank you Captain JR for all the hard work and effort you put into making sure we had plenty of fishes to brag to everyone at home about.
