I had booked with another charter for my son’s birthday and they cancelled our booking due to not enough passengers. Rodney came through big time! He was willing to take just my son and I out for a half day for just a bit more than the other charter. He drove out to “one of his spots” and we dropped lines. My son locked into a fish within 30 seconds! Biggest fish of the day. We kept at it and we had our limit of rock fish by 9:00. More fish than I have ever caught in a day, let alone a 3 hour period. Clearly Rodney knows his stuff. He was great with my son (11) and made sure we were on fish the whole time. Rather than call it a day after we had our limit, he continued to fish (he obviously loves to fish). We moved on looking for Halibut. We caught a ling god and a halibut before it was time to head in. This guy is great!! I have to say that booking the boat for the two of us was such a good choice. Father son experience we won’t soon forget. I can’t recommend Rodney and Coastal Charters enough. If you are reading reviews STOP!, go with these guys, you won’t be disappointed.
Rodney took my 14 years old son and me out for the day. We both had a great experience. He kept us on top of fish all day. Our freezer is now stocked with more fish then we know what to do with, but he did give us some good ideas on different ways to cook it up. I would recommend Santa Cruz Coastal Characters to anyone who is interested and we will be going back out sooner then later with him. Thank you so much for the experience.
My husband and 12 year old son went out with Rodney in October and had an amazing time. Rodney was very hands-on and helpful, but they both took an active role in the catch. They brought home a lot of delicious cod which we cooked up and enjoyed. Highly recommend a charter with Rodney!
