This was our first ever deep sea fishing trip. I got sick but still caught my limit. (I had an upset stomach before I got on board, the others that got sick were all hung-over) Tip don't drink the night before.
My wife and I had a great time, I can still see the smile on my wife's face. We were on the Pescatori with Captain Paul and Dillon. Captain Paul is very enthusiastic and gungho about everybody catching fish. Both Paul and Dillon did an awesome job helping 16 people catch lots of fish, the rushed around netting our fish, baiting our lines, fixing tangles. At the end of the trip they cleaned and filitted our fish.
We highly recommend the Pescatori with Captain Paul -- Westport Charters office staff were also very friendly.
My wife was the only woman on the boat and everybody treated her respectfully and helped her have a great time.
The only down side for my was that they allow smoking on the boat, but that is my issue not theirs.
Tip get Bonnies for Motion sickness take some with dinner the night before and some with a very light breakfast. Don't be embarrased if you get sick, just take a short break drink lots of water. We were out for 6 hours and I took a about a 30 min break/nap after getting sick for the 3rd time, and then got up and caugh my limit of rock fish and a salmon.
Tip the head (bathroom) is very very small. Throw up in the ocean not in the head.
We will be doing this again.
