TD Tradition Charters

People love Southern California for a lot of reasons, and fishing is one of those! Head out with TD Tradition Charters and explore the waters from San Pedro to Mexico with Captain Tom Durr. He’s got over 50 years of experience and passionate world-class staff who make sure your trip is a lot of fun!

Hop aboard "Judith Ann II," a 32’ Lurhs motor yacht. This luxury sportfishing vessel has a cruising speed of 20 knots and is powered by twin Yanmar Diesel engines. She also has an incredible tower for offshore fishing, a large bait capacity, and is equipped with Furuno Electronics and Navigation Radar. 

When it comes to amenities she’s loaded with everything including a generator, T.V., fridge, freezer microwave, stove-top, coffee maker, and spacious salon for dining. The full restroom makes long trips more comfortable and the staterooms provide sleeping quarters for up to 5 anglers.

These waters are stocked with fish. Opt to stay closer to shore and you’ll hook into Calico Bass, California Sheephead, California Halibut, and Rockfish. If deeper waters are your calling you can expect to find a variety of Tuna, including Yellowfin and Bluefin, as well as Striped Marlin.

You’ll be provided with all the conventional spinning tackle you need for a successful day on the water. If you’d like to fly fish instead, feel free to bring along your gear – just let your captain know ahead of time. The same goes for bowfishing!

Help yourself to chips, candy, and bottled water your captain provides or feel free to bring your own snacks. Most importantly, don’t forget to pick up a valid California fishing license before heading out.

Captain Tom Durr started fishing and working on boats when he was just 19 years old. Now, at 76, he's still going just as strong as ever. He doesn't regret a single day he's spent on the waters and knows that being in the fishing business was the perfect choice for him. He loves to take both novice and pros out on the water and is great with youngsters. Let's get out and catch some fish!
