We are avid fisherman. We have fished all over southern California. The crew of the Aggresor are clueless. The boat was not well kept. The bait tank had a slimy film in it. The deck hands never help pull bait from the tank. The helped...More

Boat crew were professional & courteous but this outfit's fishing service was disappointingly poor and pricing practices boarder on deceitful. Total value was very low and a waste of time and $$. Would not recommend this outfitter and will not return.

The prices were posted on the flyer on the counter, but they were apparently higher when we went to book. This place nickels and dimes you for everything. A burlap bag (that they keep) to keep your fish in costs $2!? That is ridiculous. What...More

We had a great day fishing...caught seven keepers and probably threw half a dozen more back. The crew was friendly and helpful - got all rods rigged up well, gave sound advice and most importantly, didn't lose any fish. Only downside was the half day...More

In summary, when these guys find the fish, you will have a great day but customers just pay the wages, and aren't really important after that. I've been out on the Patriot before and it was a bit better last year. I guess it makes...More
