My family and I had an amazing time fishing with Captain Ethan on the "Hot Reeling." It was our first family fishing trip, and Captain Ethan made sure it was a memorable one. He was patient and accommodating, especially with the kids on board. The yacht provided a comfortable and safe environment, and we appreciated the availability of child-sized life vests. Captain Ethan's knowledge of the local fishery was evident as we caught a variety of species, including Rockfish and Calico Bass.

professional, and hard working. After finding a captain I discovered what fishing and running my own boat was supposed to be like. My fishing career quickly went from hard work, some disappointment and exhaustion to Fishing Trips of a Life Time!
