Trip was awesome even though the fishing was a bit slow but he kept moving until we hit some hot areas. We caught a couple sharks as well as lots of bottom fish.

If you want to see a fish every cast, I suggest you watch TV shows about fishing. If you want a charter service to try and put you on fish, Dream Catcher is way above average. The more choosy you are, the tougher time any...More

If folks that fish with us are not asking a ton of questions, we don't think they are excited about being out there. We encourage folks to ask away. Thanks for telling the Trip advisor community about Dream Catcher Charters.
