Black and Blue Sportfishing

Embarcadero Place
Dana Point CA, United States

Black and Blue Sportfishing goes above and beyond to make your trip the most enjoyable experience possible. Trips are guided by Capt. Tony, a Coast Guard licensed 50 ton master captain with over 38 years of fishing experience.

Step aboard Black and Blue, a 32’ Parker extended 2530 sport cabin. Unlike most in its class, this boat features a spacious cabin to protect you from the elements and dinette seating to keep you comfortable. On board you will find state of the art electronics, including GPS chartplotter, sonar with chirp technology, and HD Radar. This boat has all Coast Guard required safety equipment and has been Coast Guard auxiliary safety inspected for 2018.

You can join Capt. Tony for a variety of trips, anywhere from three to 60 miles offshore. Come aboard for a local trip along the coast and fish for Bass, Barracuda, Halibut, Yellowtail Amberjack, and anything else within reach. These half day trips have flexible departures, giving you a chance to come aboard whenever your schedule allows.

On a full day trip, Capt. Tony will take you to Santa Catalina Island, San Clemente Island, or up to 60 miles offshore. These trips give you the chance to catch Mahi Mahi, Bluefin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, White Seabass, Yellowtail, and more. You can keep your catch and Capt. Tony will clean and fillet it for you. 

With Black and Blue Sportfishing, nothing is spared to make sure you catch the fish of a lifetime. Capt. Tony provides top quality Shimano Trinidad, Talica, Tiagra, Calcutta, and Torrium reels with braided line and fluorocarbon topshots for invisible presentation. Depending on your target species, techniques will vary from drift fishing and trolling to popping and bottom fishing.

Dana Point Harbor is a small harbor, unlike Newport Harbor. It is a short, 5-minute boat ride instead of a 40 to 50-minute boat ride. Great Fishing is a very short way just outside the harbor. So come aboard today for an unforgettable catch off the coast of California!
