The Long Run Sportfishing

Step aboard San Diego’s premier 6-pack charter to have Captain Nathan and his trusted crew put you onto fish no matter what! Three decades of experience in SD and Mexican fisheries have taught these die-hard anglers all about the seasonal species and hot spots of these waters.

No matter what kind of fishing trip you’re looking for, The Long Run is at your disposal. She’s a 40’ Hershine boat that’s got plenty of room for up to 6 anglers to be fishing in comfort. This is a spacious vessel with a pair of private heads, an outfitted kitchen, an air-conditioned cabin, and more.

On shorter trips, you can expect to target Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Yellowtail or bottom fish such as Lingcod, Sand Bass, Rockfish, and Halibut. Overnight trips will take you out for Yellowfin, Bluefin and Albacore Tuna, Dorado, Yellowtail, Marlin, and more. During shorter trips, you can also leave some lobster hoops in pristine locations when the season is open.

All the fishing equipment, including bait, is provided for your convenience – all you need to do is get that daily license and some food and beverages and start bagging fish! For maximum comfort, bring a pair of polarized sunglasses and get ready to have some fun.

    Overnight trips are Capt. Nathan's favorite because they allow for his guests to really enjoy the experience of getting onboard in the evening and setting out to fish. The fact that you can go to sleep and wake up 40-60 miles offshore in the middle of a Yellowtail bite first thing in the morning makes for a memorable experience. Besides Yellowtail, you'll also target Rockfish, and other species you may come across. This is a trip for a maximum of 6 people.

I’ve been fishing San Diego waters since 1981. I have been a fishing nut for the last 40 years and operating charters for 26 of those years. I take pride in showing fishermen and women of all ages and skill levels the best day they’ve had, fishing or otherwise. I believe happy clients are the cornerstone of a thriving charter operation.
