Pelican Sportfishing 2

Pelican Sportfishing offers you perfect sportfishing charters out of San Diego, California. Captain Shaun Uyeda and his crew specialize in inshore as well as offshore fishing and allow you to reel in many exciting and tasty species. Captain Shaun knows exactly how to provide a productive and enjoyable fishing trip. He firmly believes in making the most of life and is eager to give you a gripping adventure out on the water.

Your trip will take place on a 36’ 2020 Defiance 290 Guadalupe offshore sport fishing boat. Thanks to her twin 300 HP Yamaha V6 4.2L engines and best navigation electronics, she’ll take you to your fishing spots in no time. Up to 4 guests can come aboard and enjoy all the comfort of the boat. She has also got a private toilet, bed, live bait tank, and an ice-box.

If you want to stay inshore, you and the crew will be fishing along San Diego’s pristine coastline. Fishing from Point Loma, across Mission Bay, and up to La Jolla, you’ll have a lovely time discovering outstanding shallow waters. On inshore trips, you’ll be bottom fishing for Lingcod, Rockfish, Bass, California Sheephead, Halibut, Yellowtail, and many more delicious species to take home.

Offshore grounds allow you to chase hard-fighting big game fish. Here, you can troll the open ocean and try your hand at kite fishing as you get ready to battle these monster species. You can target Yellowfin, Skipjack, and Bluefin Tuna, as well as Mahi Mahi and Yellowtail. Not only do these powerful creatures put up a fierce fight but they can also be excellent table fare.

Captain Shaun provides all the fishing tackle, live bait, lures, as well as catch cleaning and filleting. Bring any food and drinks you like (no glass bottles), suitable clothing, sun protection, and fishing licenses.

Pelican Sportfishing is eager to provide you with a trip of a lifetime!

Member since February 2019
Captain Shaun was born and raised in San Diego, California. His love for fishing began at the age of 5 when his dad would take him to Chollas Lake and Lake Jennings almost every weekend. When he was about 10 years old, Captain Shaun's uncle bought a sportfisher and once they started saltwater fishing, the captain never looked back. After witnessing his father fight brain cancer for 17 months before ultimately passing in 2018, and his uncle passing a few years before, Captain Shaun was reminded that life is short and should be spent doing what you love and are passionate about. He decided to finally take the leap he had been wanting to for so long and obtained his 6-Pack Captain's License. The captain also owns and operates Advanced Wiring Services since 2011. He has over 15 years in marine and auto electrical and mechanical experience, making him extremely boat savvy. He's happily married and has one son that he can't wait to teach to fish!
