Hello Rob, My name is Phil C. Thanks for your website. I came across it last spring when I went looking for a 6 pack to charter. I ended up chartering The Reward for a 3 day trip in mid-July last year. We had a great time and I set up another trip for this coming July. Unfortunately I just got called today and was told that Kevin decided to sell the boat and cancelled all his trips. So I’m back in the market for a 6 pack. I’ave looked at both the Go For Broke and the Prime Time. Just wondered if you had any more information than what their website's provide. We’re looking to do another 3 day trip. Thanks for your reply.


Thanks for following up with me to see how it went. The fishing from San Diego was AWESOME! With your help, I was able to take a ½ day on the Premier on Sunday. A 1.5 on the Condor, Wednesday night through Friday morning and another ½ day on the Premier on Friday afternoon. Had it not been for your great guidance, I would have never been able to start, let alone complete three trips."
