Hi Jamie and Duane, We all had such a great time on our trip with you We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate everything you did for us on our trip on Sunday Oct. 13 and before with all our questions. Capt. Duane is an amazing Capt. He worked his butt off for us and he kept us on the fish till the bait was gone. Our haul of 14 Blue Fin 30 to 60 lbs was epic to say the least. Gives a new meaning to BFT!!! Duane did an awesome job cleaning the fish for us...what a pro with a knife. We spend hours packaging all the fish and gave so much away to friends and family. All of which want to go with us next time. We have passed onto anyone who will listen your praises. Hopefully your business will boom from our referrals I know several people who will be calling you next season. The only thing we can complain about was the we never got to eat breakfast or lunch till we got back to the dock.... but what a complaint to have! LOL. We will defiantly be fishing with you guys again and we will recommend you to anyone out there who asks. Seasons Sportfishing is THE ONLY WAY TO GO!! Hooked up and hooked on SEASONS SPORTFISHING Kevin, Sabina and Steffi
I had the pleasure of fishing w/captain Duane last week chasing some resident splits...what an awesome time! I've been fishing for 20+ years and I can honestly say this was one of the most epic trips I've been on. Being fairly new to the CA YT fishing scene I was looking to expand my knowledge and understanding of the techniques used to go after these guys...Duane DELIVERED! From the minute I got on the boat he was making sure me and the 2 other anglers were properly prepared; offering to check/tie knots, inspect lure colors and then gave us a rundown of what to expect when we arrived at the spot. This is the type of captain I like to fish with! When we got to the spot he was constantly scouting yet being a great host...exchanging fishing stories, teaching knots and listening to me trying to justify why I still fish a spinning reel. If you're going to charter a boat in San Diego, Seasons is the way to go...HANDS DOWN! Both Jaime and Duane are class acts and top notch captains. Forget those head boats if you're looking to fish and have a great time!

Jamie -Thank you very much for them and the fantastic trip aboard your 3420. Both Lou and I appreciate greatly the way in which you went out of your way to make our fishing trip happen. It speaks volumes on who you are and what you believe. It also reaffirms our belief that you run a first class fishing outfit which we can rely upon time and time again. We'll see you again next year.
-- Scott Matsuda
My son and I went out with Duane on September 4th and ended up with 4 homeguard California Yellowtail and 11 nice rockfish. We had a great time and could tell we were fishing with a great captain. Duane would have stayed out longer but he had thoroughly kicked our butts. I would recommend Seasons Sportfishing to anyone looking for a great fishing day.
-- ROBERT RAYNER
amie Just wanted to say thank you for the most stupendous day’s fishing on Tuesday. Bag limit of Yellow Tails and two nice Mahi Mahi can’t be bad. Already planning the next trip. You did a great job for us and you have a boat to be proud of Kind regards Peter
-- Peter Whiting
Fun wouldn't begin to describe what we had, it was epic! I was telling Cpt Duane that my only complaint was that there was no time for me to eat lunch. He kept us on the fish all day. We were three fish from limits by 12:30. Cpt Duane is very professional, friendly and helpful. This was the first time fishing with you guy but it felt like I've fishing with you guy forever. I really want to say thank you and I'll definitely get my buddies together for some sea bass and off shore with you guys.

Jamie, Just want to say thanks for an outstanding day of fishing this past Saturday (Nov 3 2012). Also thanks for posting the pics on the website it's a plus on top of all the bragging we're doing! By far best fishing charter I've ever been on, thanks again. You can count on seeing us again in near future!
-- Joaquin Paredes
After seven days of fishing you pulled no punches put us on fish and knocked em out! Biggest effort I've seen in my from a skipper in my many trips. Like I said you made a customer for life!
-- Rob Minor
Thank you for taking us off shore fishing. It was an awesome trip we had and one I will never forget!
-- Hooman Assad
Hi Jaime, Just wanted to give a big Thank You to you and Duane for an amazing half-day trip. Building experiences with my parents is something very important to me and this one goes right to the top of the list. The respect and patience you showed my family, my girlfriend and I, made us feel like we were in the company of true professionals. Duane is by far the most polite, helpful and humble deck hand / charter partner I have ever met. Your guidance as a captain was superb and after being on a few private charters up and down the pacific coast, I can say with confidence that you run a superior service in every aspect of your business. I hope to have the opportunity to chase some of those off-shore species with you and your crew soon. Tight lines! -Edwin.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for an awesome fishing trip. Getting back and forth to the islands at warp speed (even in rough conditions) was awesome and impressive. That Parker is really a great machine. Thanks so much for your extraordinary service and personal attention. You got us on the fish right away, and worked all day long to keep us hauling them in. We all had a great time, and cant wait to get back out there to get some more yellows. Much appreciated. Josh Lowe (Mt. Baldy)
-- Josh Lowe
Hi Jamie, I cant thank you enough for such an awesome experience out at the island! Your Parker is a great ride! It was a pleasure fishing with you and I hope I can do it soon. I truly enjoyed myself out there and plan on fishing with you at least once a year.
-- Justin De La Cruz
Hi Jamie, My family and I had a great time fishing with you this past weekend! Thanks for the great communication leading up to the trip. We enjoyed fishing in an area we haven’t explored before, and appreciate having you as our Captain. We microwaved the red snapper and groupers for dinner and they were delicious! Thanks again! Annabel

Hi Jaime, I want to thank you again for the extraordinary time we had out on the water with family. It means a lot to me to spend quality time fishing with them and seeing them stoked, especially with a BFT on the other end of the line. You and Duane exceeded my expectations of this trip and we will be coming back hopefully soon if not next year chasing those damn tunas again! Thanks again brotha, Kevin Castro
-- Kevin Castro
I would like to compliment you and Duane for the excellent service that you guys provided on our recent fishing trip! I have always heard outstanding things about your charters from friends and family members and in my opinion your professionalism and knowledge of the sport exceeded my expectations. Such a commitment to great customer service is to be commended and you can be sure that I will continue to fish with Seasons Sport Fishing for years to come. Great Job Guy! Seasons Sport Fishing is FIRST CLASS! Let’s do it again! Sincerely, Greg Almazan

Hi Jamie, Thanks for a very good day of being out on the water and fishing. We had a really fun time bringing up those tankers and we got some sore arms too. You and Duane do a hell of a job. We would like to do some C-Bassing with you guys next season. Thanks to you and Duane again for our best trip ever! Spencer, Davey and Allan

Jamie, Buddy and I had a great time fishing with you and John. You are a first class operation and I will look forward to fishing with you again, thanks again for helping Buddy with that WSB you did a great job.
Hi Jaime, Thank you very much for a great day of fishing. Not only did my wife, brother in law, and I have a fantastic time, I know this was an experience my cousin will never forget. You were very patient and helpful, and always ready to assist us when needed (which my wife says, and I agree, was a lot). We will certainly recommend your services to our friends and family. See you again, Scott
-- Scott Matsuda
Thanks so much for providing a really super day for George and myself. Everything about it was special. Halibut and Big Red for dinner tonight!!!!
-- Bob Marcus
Jamie & Duane, Thanks for an outstanding charter! You showed up prepared and ready to go and got us where we needed to be quickly. You had the right gear, the right know-how, and the right attitude. It was FISH ON for hours. Of the three charters we've taken out of San Diego, Seasons is the only charter we will use again. It took us over 2 hours to package all the fillets we took home. Thanks again! Andrea & Co.
-- Andrea Hosken
Just wanted to thank both of you for an outstanding day of fishing that exceeded my expectations of a charter trip. You both are "seasoned" in people, fishing and your skills to fulfill an objective while making the adventure fun, exciting and informative. Since this was the first off-shore experience for me and my family for this style of fishing, this was all new to us. Both of you directed us in an organized manner that made the fishing bite and catch stellar. Hey, sometimes folks need direction and order. In closing, I would hands-down recommend your charter to anyone interested in the true fishing experience. "Top Notch" is a nice catch phrase for captain and crew, but when it is more like a couple of brothers taking the family out for a "fishing trip of a lifetime" it is then one of those "blue moments" that are seared into the memory forever...that is what you two do. Great job and I relished in seeing my Dad pleased with his selection of charter service. Please, please, please stay in business and florish. I hope I can impress my next group of friends and family with YOUR services. Thank you again guys and I hope to see you on the next adventure soon. Eric Uchiyama ( Art )
