San Diego Fishing Co – 50' Chris Craft

Prepare to be treated in style with the San Diego Fishing Company. Located conveniently at H&M Landing near San Diego Airport, you’ll head out to the open seas to hunt for huge fish, or stay local, fishing the wealth of species native to Southern California. The vessel is commercially insured, F&G-tagged, and has a San Diego Port Sticker. All captains are USCG-certified and have years of experience to share with each customer.

Revel in the luxury of this 50’ Chris Craft yacht, while the twin Cummins Diesel 675 HP engines thrust you to the open waters. She’s equipped with everything required to keep you safe and in contact with land, as well as plenty for your comfort and entertainment on board.

There are two toilets, a shower, AC, and even a TV! The fridge will be stocked with soft drinks and snacks. 2 meals a day for 10 and 12 hour trips will be prepared, 3 meals a day for 24 hour or multiday trips.

Outriggers and tuna tubes are fitted to maximize your potential. You’ll be grateful for as much help as possible when you’re near 100 miles offshore battling Marlin and Tuna of up to 400 pounds!

You’ll use top-of-the-line Penn International and Seeker rods, as well as plenty of tackle on which to place the 4 scoops of bait you’ll find on board. The captain’s mates will assist you as you fight these giants. On nearshore trips, you’ll go after Yellowtail, Calico, Halibut, and more.

With shared and private charters for up to 6 people running all the way from Ensenada to Catalina Island, there’s a trip tailored for you. With a 250-quart Yeti icebox to keep the fish, you’ll be confident of bagging plenty to take home. Just bring your passport for trips to Mexico and get fishing! If you like being on the water, come with San Diego Fishing Company for an unforgettable time.

If you can’t see the date or trip you want, get in touch and something can be arranged. Please note that you’ll need to get your fishing license, which costs $15 and can be purchased on location.

    This trip goes to the backside of the beautiful Catalina Island. Behind the island is the Farnsworth bank and also the northern tip of the island, both are notorious and prolific producers of White Seabass. Not uncommonly in the 60+ lb weight class. Smaller examples are even more prevalent. In addition to hooking up on these beasts, there are many other Rockfish, Barracuda, Yellowtail, Calico, and Halibut to be caught. Just bring your passport and purchase your fishing license.

    Go deep or go home! These outer banks are about a hundred miles off shore and represent the pinnacle of deep sea banks off the coast of Southern California. The biggest fish can be found here and you'll use the heaviest gear around. There are big Bluefin, Marlin, Yellowfin, as well as numerous other bottom fish to catch. Prepare for a very fast bite and it's never crowded, so you'll have it all to yourselves. Just make sure you purchase a fishing license.

    Head all the way south as far as Todos Santos Island and the Ensenada Bay. Favorite spots include the Rock Pile, the 101, 439, 425, and Upper Finger Bank, and the outer banks (Kidney Bank and Hidden Bank). These trips offer the best chances of catching larger and higher quality fish than any trip offered. The fishing is almost always better the further south you go. Enjoy pelagic fishing year round. When the fish head south, why don't you? Just remember your passports and purchase a fishing license!

    This trip goes to the backside of San Clemente Island to fish for Bluefin Tuna during the night and early morning and Kite fish during the day. Bluefin range in size from 20 to 250 lbs!!! Don't worry, we have the heavy rods and reels at the ready, and glow in the dark flat falls. We arrive in the middle of the night and drop flat falls on the meter marks until we hook up. It is hard fishing, but if you catch a bluefin that is over 100 lbs you will be in for the fight of your life.

    The Coronado Islands offer an awesome variety of fish to catch, ranging from Bluefin to Dorado. Fishing Mexican waters, generally, means more bites and more fish. The scenery is also incredible. During the winter season, there's great bottom fishing to be had in the "Middle Grounds." Each guest will need a passport in order to come aboard, and you'll need to purchase a one day Mexican Fishing license.

San Diego Fishing Company’s founder and owner, Captain Nick, used to be a software engineer sitting behind a desk, making decent money, but always wondered if there was more in store for him. He always owned a personal boat and longed for the opportunity to combine his passion and a new career. As his dreams got bigger and bigger, he decided to leave his desk and computer behind, and instead guide fishing charters for a living. He made the jump about 5 years ago and hasn’t looked back since!
