1 Soak-N-Bait Kayak Charters

1 Soak-N-Bait Kayak Charters wishes you a warm welcome to San Diego, California. Join in for a fun-packed, exciting kayak fishing experience and have a memorable time chasing fish. Your captain is a licensed and bonded guide who uses super stable pedal kayaks to guide the San Diego Mission Bay and La Jolla for many excellent species. He specializes in providing a unique and intimate experience with nature as you come closer to the water and surroundings that no other craft can provide.

Your adventure takes place on 14’ Hobie Pro Angler kayaks powered by Hobie Mirage Drive. In order to help you locate the fish and have a safe trip, the boats are rigged with modern GPS electronics as well as 7” or 9” fishfinder units. Also included are Hobie bait tanks for keeping live bait. Up to 3 guests can join a trip.

Using light and heavy tackle, you can bottom fish, spearfish, troll, spin, and jig. The choice of species you can chase includes Pacific Barracuda, Yellowtail Amberjack, Sculpin, White Seabass, Calico Bass, Halibut, and Lingcod. You’re free to keep your catch and you can bring kids on your trip. Kids coming on their own must be at least 12 and those accompanied by an adult at least 10.

The captain supplies all the fishing tackle, live bait, lures, as well as snacks. Just bring your licenses and any drinks you want.
