If you are experienced fisherman go for the whole day trip, otherwise take the whole family for a great time fishing near the shore. Have a good time, there will be lots of action. Be ready to yell out "fish on".

Yes, totally recommend, but November is the off season and there’s not many fish. Next time we’ll go longer and go out further.

Don’t come with any expectations. Enjoy being out in the water and the opportunity to do some world class fishing.

Have fun it doesn’t have to be a big fish to have fun and take a picture. Find a crew that knows where to go

Hit up captain conor, and book a full day. Half a day is definitely not enough time because it goes by quicker than you think.

Call Steven at rockin reel if you really want to catch fish. Steven worked hard for us and put us on fish all day. Great guy that knows what he's doing.

Easy to find lots of parking, clean rest rooms(!), vending machine, and cheap ice vending machine, nice harbor in, and out access. Bases are pretty much there for you.

Learn the equipment you'll be using before you leave the dock. Don't try and figure out a complicated reel set up without asking questions first.

Maybe it was a bit too cool yet. Another 5 degrees probably would have helped the dishing.

Weather can be cool and wet, not necessarily what one envisions for southern California.
