San Diego Fishing Company – 24'

Explore the local waters of Southern California aboard San Diego Fishing Company’s 24’ Davis with a tuna tower and a cuddy cabin. You’ll discover some of the most pristine fishing grounds, including underwater kelp forests and reefs where a plethora of species congregate. Your experienced captain and crew will be sure to put you on big fish while showing you a great time.

This is the fastest vessel in their fleet. With her 295 HP diesel engine, she’ll take you to all the best fishing spots along the coast within 30 minutes. She also has a spacious deck that can accommodate up to 4 people comfortably, a porta-potty, three hull-integrated holds to store your catch, and a small galley with microwave and sleeping accommodation for two or three. This vessel is a full walkaround, meaning you can easily fish off the bow, adding more overall room to the boat while still offering a small cabin.

She’s equipped with a Simrad NSS Evo 3’s. This helps the captain locate underwater structures where many fish reside, faster and easier, using state-of-the-art sonar and DownScan Imaging.

Your main targets will be various Tuna species, including Bluefin and Yellowfin, as well as Yellowtail, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and delicious bottom-dwellers like Rockfish, White Bass, Calico Bass, and Halibut.

The boat is stocked with Penn Fathom and Penn International reels, Seeker rods, and an 80 gallon live well. The only thing left for you to do is to purchase a fishing license, and you’ll be all set for a successful day.

Just book your trip, and let the good team at San Diego Fishing Company take care of the rest!

    Specifically fishing the Coronado Islands in Mexico, you will need a passport for each and every person on this trip, please no exceptions. The Coronado Islands offer year-round sport fishing with a variety of fish to catch ranging from Bluefin to Dorado. Generally speaking, fishing Mexican waters equates to more bites and more fish. The scenery is also incredible. There is also great bass fishing up close to the island as well. A great rockfish and halibut spots on the flats!
  • Private trip
    6 Hour - 9 Mile Bank (Rockfish)
    FREE Cancellation 1 day notice
    8 Hour Trip, starts at 8:00 AM
    $1,099
    The 9-mile bank is a very short ride from the mouth of San Diego harbor and is one of the favorite spots for San Diego Anglers. Close enough to get there quickly, but fishy enough to fill the boat on a good day. During the Winter and Spring months, fishing off the bottom yields quick limits for rockfish, lingcod, and halibut. During the Summer and Fall months, we specifically target Tuna on this trip. At 25 knots, the ride out is about 45 minutes. Fishing License and Alcohol not included.

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!
