I went on the Dauntless on Oct. 24. Best day ever. Caught fish all day.
I caught porgies,seabass,ling and a cod. I had to throw back the seabass, because they were out of season. The capt and mate worked hard All DAY to keep us on the fish. They are pro's, and bottom fish every day of the year.
Just my opinion, but they do it every day, so why not sail with the experts.
By the way, it was my first time on that boat, but far from my first trip. I was very impressed.
Some guys got a tog on that trip, but I just can't catch those.
