Guest Feedback

Sportfishing at its finest!

Our guides were Troy and Talon. We caught so much fish the first day we couldn't close the lid on the holding tank in the boat. This might have been due to the 40lb spring and the 66 lb halibut that were in there! That's correct - 40lb spring!! Two of the guys had never fished the ocean before and after this day of fishing said if they never caught another fish in their lives they were okay with that. Adrian you got them both "hooked". One of our guys had fished the area for 20 years and now wants to move his annual trip to Reel Obsession.
