Know your regs. I didn’t know the keeper limit was still 36”, so we didn’t bring home fish. That was my bad. Everything else was pretty perfect.

Dress warmly, it was chilly earlier in the day. The marina is easy to find.

Yes, those Spanish Mackerels fish are some good fish to eat. The best I ever ate.

I think other than the weather fishing would’ve been a little better, plus going in trophy rock season probably wouldn’t do that again but we did catch some decent size cat fish.

I would just recommend making sure that the weather is right for you, especially if you are prone to seasickness (ours was great anyway).

Stay in-shore, practice with the smaller fishes! Your target should be bottom-feeders and whiting! You will have a great time, for the first time, if you try not to do to much.

Despite it being late in the season, Captain Billy worked hard to make sure that the guys all caught their limit. The first mate took great care of them, and all had a wonderful day on the Bay. Worth every $. Do not hesitate to book!

come prepared - welcome letter from captain addresses everything you need to know about what to expect, and what to bring, etc. (good company, good tunes, good food, sunglasses, stay hydrated) Take the Non-drowsy Dramamine just in case -

Check the season of fish first. Rockfish were off season for the first 2 weeks ever on our trip.

Use Lucky Strike Charters if you want more than just a fishing experience. They are impressive, affordable and kid friendly.

You never know what you’ll bring in the boat. It was an off day, not a lot fish caught. But, still was a lot of fun.

Want to try earlier in the season to fish for larger Rockfish—we caught and released smaller ones this time.
