The main purpose for me booking this trip was to get my grandson out fishing and hopefully have him catch a few fish. Keeping the fish and having them for a meal was not a goal, so the catch and release format was perfect. Captain Day was excellent! He worked with my grandson teaching him casting techniques, explaining the “why’s” of what we were doing and he was able to catch a lot of fish. I would recommend Captain Day.
My husband and his father spent the morning with Captain Bob, they had so much fun catching fish and they said Bob was good company! When I booked, I thought they would be going farther out and catching huge fish, if that’s what you’re expecting this isn’t it. But they had a really great experience, caught a lot of fish and were not disappointed!
Bob was even nice enough to give them a ride afterward, I’m sure that’s not a service he typically offers so don’t expect it but it was very kind of him!
My son, Jack, and I wanted to take a father/son fishing trip together, while in San Diego. Jack is becoming quite the angler, so we enlisted the services of Bob Day. He managed the entire trip and guided and supported us while we fished for the entire morning. We had an amazing day, caught a lot of fish and laughed a lot as we competed for the most fish caught. Jack won! It will always be one of our most memorable experiences.
The main purpose of my charter was to get my grandson out fishing. Besides catching numerous fish, Captain Day taught him some casting techniques, some of the why’s of where we were fishing, the baits we were using etc.. He did an excellent job and I hope to be able to fish with him again.
Captain Bob is a great guide and a great teacher. He quickly put me on fish and helped walk me (a novice fly fisher with no saltwater experience) through the basics ensuring our success!
I had the pleasure of taking a half day bay fly fishing trip with captain Bob and had a wonderful time. He was on time and very attentive, the best teacher ever. The conversation was wonderful and had a blast! I highly recommend his service. Very careful always with security and concerned with giving me a wonderful experience.
Have fished with Capt. Bob two years in a row and will be back next year. No better guy to introduce kids to fishing and get a lesson in in salt water fly fishing for Dad. Lots of fish. Excellent Orvis equip. No sea sickness probs!
I could not have asked for a better trip than we had with Bob. My wife and I have very different fishing skill levels and interest, but we both caught fish and truly enjoyed ourselves. We toured the entire bay, saw osprey, porpoise and sea lions, and caught a few fish. His knowledge of the water and local history also contributed to a wonderful trip. I will certainly try and fish with Bob again if I am ever back in San Diego.
I want to thank Bob for a very nice morning on the bay. I am a novice, and largely self-taught, fly fisherman so I was looking forward to a little coaching as well as some good fishing. Bob provided both. Not only does he know where and when to find the fish, he provided clear and patient instruction to help correct some of my bad casting habits. I am looking forward to having him take my grandkids out when they come this summer so Bob can get them started right.
Faced with a possible client skunk midway into the charter using his total understanding of bottom structure, tidal surge and current action in the Back Bay, Captain Bob my expert guide, went into action. He relocated the boat over an old open water ship anchorage. Both the first and second cast produced the areas signature fish the scrappy Spotted Bay Bass. Another move produced three chunky Spotties and my first of the season Bonefish which Captain Bob skillfully netted just as the fish spit my fly. This beautiful fish was released without ever being touched by human hands. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Captain Bob and En La Mosca Adventures for a job well done.
