Fish Taxi Sportfishing has a goal of you catching lots of fish and have fun doing it! Join captain Don Nelson and his experienced crew. They run fishing trips out of Oceanside and they can take you out on the water any time of year. Join regardless of your skill level, as any trip can be adjusted to fit your needs!
You’ll be fishing from a 34’ flybridge that can comfortably welcome up to 6 anglers. She’s powered by twin 380 HP Cummins engines and will get you wherever you need to be in no time. The top notch navigational electronics will help you locate schools of fish and then the crew will get you ready with professional fishing equipment.
Your technique and approach will be different depending on the fish you want to catch. You can switch between trolling, spinning, bottom fishing, or deep sea fishing. Closer to the shore, you’ll have high chances of catching Halibut, Calico Bass, Rockfish, and small Sharks. Reaching offshore spots brings something new to the plate, such as Mahi Mahi, Lingcod, Tuna, and Barracuda.
Besides Shimano and Pen gear, the captain will also prepare live bait before your trip starts. There will also be some snacks and drinks but feel free to bring your own. The crew will also clean your catch and, although not mandatory, tips are appreciated for the service.
Enjoy the California sun the best way possible - spending a day with Fish Taxi Sportfishing!
