San Diego Fishing Company - 28'

If you want to cast off on the fishing trip of a lifetime in sunny SoCal, Kraken Sportfishing is ready to show you what these plentiful waters have to offer! Departing out of San Diego, you’ll be in prime position to explore everything from fish-filled kelp beds to offshore hotspots. Even better? Your guide is lifelong angler Captain Leng Bai, who has plenty of tips and tricks up his sleeve.

Capt. Leng runs an impressive variety of shared and private charters, which are all customizable. No matter your skill level, you’ll find something to suit you perfectly. Newer anglers or families can opt for exciting, budget-friendly shorter trips to nearshore waters, where Halibut, Calico Bass, and Rockfish can be found. More experience under your belt? Head out for a full day and battle oversized Tuna!

You’ll be fishing from the “Kraken,” a 2004 Grady White Islander. She measures a spacious 29 feet, with room for up to 4 guests, and is powered by twin Yamaha 4-stroke 150 HP outboard engines. Capt. Leng has had the boat outfitted for all types of fishing, and you’ll find top-quality navigational electronics on board to guide you to the hotspots.

Capt. Leng employs a wide range of fishing methods, including deep sea fishing, fishing with live bait and artificial lures, sight casting, bottom fishing, bay fishing, and spearfishing. Using a mix of these methods, he’ll have you targeting a wide range of species, including Tuna species, Mahi Mahi, Yellowtail, Halibut, Sea Bass, Lingcod, Sheephead, and Rockfish.

If you’d like to spearfish, you must have some experience and bring your own gear along. Prefer to try a more conventional technique? Your captain has mounted grand-slam outriggers for trolling, as well as Penn, Phoenix, and Calstar rods paired with Penn and Accurate reels. These are all included in your trip!

Your trip also includes lures, live bait on longer trips, and snacks and drinks. Grab a fishing license and cast off on an adventure with Kraken Sportfishing!

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!

Seasick adventures- never going deep sea fishing again!

VERIFIED   September 7, 2019
We probably should have canceled our trip when we got a call notifying us the original boat broke down. But we already flew...
