Half-Day Deep-Sea Fishing Cruise, Newport Beach

deep-sea-fish-generic-2Deep sea fishing is a very enjoyable and fun experience. I had the pleasure of going on the half-day deep-sea fishing cruise from Newport Beach. It was a very pleasing experience for me, one which I enjoyed quite a lot. There were three different departure timings available for this fishing cruise but since I wanted to enjoy the early morning fresh air, I decided to go at 6am. Our cruise left for the deep sea from the Newport Harbor at exactly 6am. I liked the punctuality as it provided me the chance to see the sun rise in the sky which was a beautiful sight for sure.

When we reached the deep sea where we were to fish, we were given rods, tackle and baits which were all included in the tour. I was told that there were plenty of bass and barracuda in the waters there and that it would be easy to catch some good fish. Being a seasoned angler, I had no issues in getting used to the new rods and baits but the other anglers weren’t so lucky. However, the good thing was that a fishing crew was available on the cruise which helped and assisted in catching fish. So, if you are planning on going this tour then rest assured that you would have help on hand to catch fish.

I was very happy with the entire tour. I had plenty of fun, catching a great deal of fish. The crew also gave me some excellent tips on how to catch the fish quickly. I was impressed with the knowledge that they had. The youngsters on the cruise were also able to catch some decent sized bass and barracudas. Another of the good aspect of the tour that I liked was that fish larger or smaller than the legal size were returned to the water immediately. It was a very fine day and the whole 5 hour tour was exciting and full of fun.


Although I liked this deep-sea fishing cruise a lot, there were some things that I felt must have been included in the tour. Foods and drinks were excluded from the tour altogether. There were drinks and food items available for purchase but it would have been better if they were included in the package. Moreover, hotel pick and drop would also be good as reaching the Newport harbor in the early morning is a little troublesome.
