My teenage son and I had our first experience with Al Gauron in June 2015. The last time we went deep sea fishing was 10 years ago, so we weren't sure what to expect. We chose the 1/2 day morning trip (bottom fishing) for starters. I was surprised we had to pay $5.00 to park, but whatever, it was so... More

My wife and I went out deep sea fishing on June 30th and had a great day. I was lucky enough to hook and land a 62lb Halibut. First let me say I've been going out fishing with Al Gauron for 45 yrs, I go couple of times a year and always catch fish and have a great time. Rocky... More

This was the best deep sea fishing experience I have ever had. The crew, including Nipper, the dog were all great. The short ride to where we fished, made the amount of time actually fishing much longer than other trips I have been on. As soon as we dropped our lines we started reeling in the mackerel. The 2 of... More

We got a good deal on Groupon so decided to give Al Gauron's all day fishing a try. Looking at the website beforehand we got our disappointment out of the way that we would be throwing back all haddock - red fish were it for us. It was a cold day but the seas were very calm. We secured our... More

Took my 9yo son fishing and we had a great time. The crew were funny and kind, helping us novices out and the captain put on us on fish for almost all 4 hours. I had been waiting for this part of our vacation and was 100% satisfied. The prices are reasonable and we brought home fillets from 4 large... More

One fish was caught on our trip, not even a nibble after that. The crew was on top of helping everyone cast and fix lines. I believe I made friends with one of the members, wish I had gotten his name! He kept my family laughing by jokingly blaming the line snags on me! The view of the water meeting... More

We took our teenage grandson on the four-hour whale watch and were not disappointed. Not only did we see several whales, but schools of dolphin, porpoises, seals, and ocean sun fish! The young lady narrating did a great job keeping us interested and informed. The inside cabin was a welcome relief for part of the trip back to warm up,... More

earlier this year went on a trip and everyone was complaining but the captain did nothing, stayed in spots with not much fish for long periods of time... and when we were catching... he would just move... we caught lots of Acadian Redfish and not much else... Later read the fishing report for that day and it was BULL SH!!... More

This is for the 8/8 trip. I've been going fishing with this business for the last 12 years. Off and on. I try to get in 3 trips a year. Here's why I and my kids come back. 1) safety is obviously first. This can be observed if you watch a listen to the crew. 2) atmosphere. It's nice to... More
