Come aboard the Witchy Woman and let her cast her spell over the waters as Captain Nathan Beall guides you towards Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Dorado, Blue and Striped Marlin, and more. This is the perfect charter for more experienced anglers who are looking to test their skills and wits against various hard-fighting deep sea species. Let the battle begin!

You’ll be heading out on your adventure in Capt. Nathan’s 31’ Chris Craft center console. She can comfortably accommodate six anglers, and is powered by two 225 HP Yamaha engines. All anglers will be able to fish at the same time, unless you’re trolling the waters, as this is limited to four anglers at once — the perfect opportunity for you and a friend to sit back, relax, and let the fish take center stage!

The Witchy Woman cruises along at 35 knots, meaning that Capt. Nathan will get you on the fish nice and quickly, allowing maximum time for reeling in your big catch. Fancy something a bit different? Capt. Nathan provides spearfishing equipment, so if you’d like a story to tell, this might be for you. Just make sure you let him know in advance that you’d like to experience this type of fishing on your trip.

If you’re a slightly less experienced angler, then Capt. Nathan is more than happy to bring you on board and introduce you to the waters that he knows so well. His local trips targeting inshore species like Yellowtail and Halibut are perfect for a family holiday to remember. Kids are more than welcome onboard, just make sure that you bring along a life jacket for any children under six years old.

All fishing equipment, including live bait, is included in your trip, and Capt. Nathan will happily clean and fillet your catch on the boat. All you need to do is purchase your daily fishing license, bring along some suncream and your favourite snacks, and get ready to work your magic on the Witchy Woman!

I’ve been fishing San Diego waters since 1981. I have been a fishing nut for the last 40 years and operating charters for 26 of those years. I take pride in showing fishermen and women of all ages and skill levels the best day they’ve had, fishing or otherwise. I believe happy clients are the cornerstone of a thriving charter operation.
