I took my daughter on her first charter fishing trip a couple of days ago. I was nervous because of the other reviews but this wasn't our experience, at all. The boat was clean and the deck hands worked their tales off. The one time that Randy said anything was because we were all fishing too close to the bottom and losing a ton of gear. He was extremely polite about it and there was absolutely no yelling at all.
There was a young boy who caught 3 big lingcod and Captain Randy was so excited for him each time- it was fun to see! Everyone caught their limits and went home with a ton of fish. He made sure to point out whales on the way out and the way in.
As opposed to the other tales of being yelled at, I went to Captain Randy after I had a rod break because I had caught the bottom. I wanted to pay for the rod because I felt so bad. Instead, he told me that they catch a ton of fish on light rods (so much fun!) and I was just the unlucky one to be holding it when it gave. I didn't have to pay for the rod- and I'm busy trying to figure out when I can sneak out for another trip.
Extremely affordable rates- so happy to have found the Rampage!
