Come enjoy the beautiful waters of San Diego and have lots of fun catching fish together with La Jolla Water Sports! Whether you travel inshore or offshore, these grounds will have a variety of intriguing species on the offer year-round, and the nature will surely charm you and make you wish you come back. Come join Captain Eldon Bertsch and spend a day fishing the rich and beautiful waters of California.

You’ll start your journey on a 22’ angler boat manufactured by Angler. It’s powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine and sits up to 5 people, not including the first mate who’ll also be joining your trip. The boat’s got GPS, a fishfinder, and radio needed for navigation and is equipped with snorkeling and spearfishing gear. You’ll also have a livewell to provide you with live bait and an ice-box so you can store your fish and drinks.

On your trip, you can chase California Sheephead, Yellowtail Amberjack, Sculpin, Calico Bass, Rockfish, Halibut, and Sand Bass. To catch them, you’ll use bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, jigging, as well as spearfishing. All the fish you catch is yours if you want it, and you’re welcome to bring kids on your trip.

You’re covered for all the fishing gear, drinks, as well as fish cleaning and filleting. You’ll just need to bring valid licenses and the food and drinks of your choice.

Join Captain Eldon on the welcoming California waters and have a beautiful day fishing!
