    Target the largest gamefish available. Huge Mako sharks caught on almost every trip. Not for the faint of heart! Sometimes there’s a lot of travel but we are frequently very successful with multiple fish of all sizes. Catch and release is strongly encouraged! A handling fee of $1 per pound will be charged for any kept sharks over 100 pounds. Big game fishing doesn’t get any better than this!

It all started with my dad as a kid. I always loved being on the water and catching anything I could. Over the last 40 years I’ve made fishing my life. I’ve been fishing the waters of Southern California on anything from tiny boats to luxury Sportfishing yachts. Inshore or offshore there’s no place I’d rather be. Running charters for families and big game anglers allows me to share my passion for fishing. The variety of species and anglers keeps it exciting.
