FinnCo Charters provides a great experience fishing Catalina Island! Choose between touring the front side for a generally calmer experience or try the backside trips for a heightened adventure.
Fish from a 30’ Proline walk around, that gets you to the island in a little over an hour, conditions permitting. Full electronics package onboard including a chartplotter, fish finder (sonar), and radar when conditions are not ideal. Bluetooth entertainment stereo system connects easily for you to listen on the water.
Loaded with 2 scoops of live fin bait, there’s plenty of bait to last all day. Some trips will have a bucket of frozen sardines for chum and frozen squid for bottom dwellers. Fish cleaning is typically not included due to the number of fish caught and the amount of time taken away from fishing. There’s also a large cooler with ice to care for the catch.
Captain Finn offers 2 Catalina trips, split between mid-week discounts and weekend/holiday rates. If you’re unsure about making the 30-mile offshore trip, get in touch with the captain and he’ll help you choose the right day and show you where to see the marine forecast on your fishing date.
The boat has tackle available for use and all their gear is loaded with braided line and fluorocarbon. The majority of reels are levelwind, bait casters which are perfect for fly lining for those sought after pelagic species. Bring your own rods or try the crew’s (limit two personal rods per customer unless pre-authorization). They hold 16 rods easily on board.
Sodas and water are included in the price. You may also bring your own drinks, but limited to one med soft cooler per angler (cans and plastic only). Don’t forget to purchase your fishing license.
