Come visit California and have a memorable day on the water with Ez Sportfishing! You’ll enjoy and have lots of fun fishing the highly productive waters of Huntington Beach, a first-rate angling destination with an excellent view of the Pacific Ocean. You and Captain Eric will explore both inshore and offshore spots along with reefs and wrecks that are always a good source of fish. Come and see the great natural diversity of South California as you enjoy a day on the water.

Captain Eric uses a 35’ Parker pilothouse boat that’s powered by two 250 HP Yamaha engines and can accommodate up to 6 guests. The boat’s got a toilet, bed, and flybridge, uses full-featured navigation electronics, and is equipped with outriggers, a livewell, and an ice-box. Also, there will be a first mate present on board to give you any assistance you may need.

The waters around Huntington Beach are especially productive and offer many different species to catch. There’s Dolphin, Skipjack Tuna, Rockfish, Lingcod, Halibut, Swordfish, and many more to chase. You can also try out various techniques to catch them, including bottom fishing, trolling, kite fishing, and more. You’re free to choose if you’ll keep or release the fish you catch.

Captain Eric supplies you with all the rods, reels, tackle, and live bait, and he’ll also clean your catch free of charge. Before you depart, just pack some food and drinks and don’t forget your fishing licenses. Due to the fluctuating fuel prices, trips may be subject to a fuel surcharge.

Ez Sportfishing is eagerly waiting to take you on a memorable fishing trip in California!
