Went offshore fishing with John and Tuck . We brought our sons who are 11 and 13. The guys are very kid friendly and treated them with respect. I have had other captains talk down and snap at kids. It was refreshing to see them treat our boys with kindness. On top of that we had a blast. We caught our target species ( tuna). We also caught other species had a full ice chest! highly recommend !

I had a much better experience with Captain Wetzel than I did the last charter fishing trip out of Venice I'd been on prior. Fish were biting. More importantly, he seems to genuinely care that his clients have fun, as opposed to some who once they've got your money don't give a monkey's behind if the clients enjoy the trip. The trolling motor determines who catches the most fish for inshore saltwater trips. While captain Wetzel is more of an offshore guy, if he did take clients inshore, he'd angle the boat so that the clients catch the most fish. Offshore when you're fishing between 200-600 feet of water, random luck determines how you'll fare on a given day... Well, that and the weather. In any case, this is a guide I am comfortable recommending to others and putting my own name out there in doing so.

It's obvious these guys love what they do and they made my wife's first fishing experience one we will never forget. We had a great time and she's looking forward to going out again next year! Captain Troy's fishing charter made our trip to LA much more memorable. thanks Captain Troy
