The waters off the coast of California have plenty to offer to any angler: from bottom fishing hook ups to offshore extravaganza. Off The Grid will put you on the hottest bite on top of premier proven fish havens.

Captain William Ting invites you to join him for a fishing excursion on board his 28’ Desina RIB. She’s a patrol boat capable of holding 6 passengers with ease, without bumping elbows while fishing. However, it is highly recommended that we only have 4 people fishing to give you the best ‘private boat experience’!  She’s equipped for both comfort and action – giving you the best shot at landing “that one” fish.

The onboard live bait well ensures that your bait will be alive and ready for the bite! This boat is fast and will get you to the fishing grounds quickly to give you max time for fishing.

The charter will supply you with all the necessary fishing equipment for a wide range of fishing styles you can try. Light or heavy tackle, spinning or fly casting, bottom fishing, or using a kite – they have it covered. They can even take you spearfishing, though spearos should bring their own gear.

This plethora of fishing techniques matches the variety of fish species you can pick and choose from. Shorter trips will see you on top of rockfish, seabass, Calico Bass, barracuda, Bonito, and other species.

Kids of all ages are welcome on board, the captain will supply life jackets in all sizes. High-quality tackle by companies like Shimano, Daiwa, iRod, and others is supplied as well, though you can bring your lucky rod if you want to.

Explore California as you’ve never before.
