First Dawn Charters offers trips to suit any taste out of Newport Beach, CA. Fishing both inshore and offshore, they can have you targeting anything from Rockfish and Calico Bass to Mahi Mahi and Tuna.
You will be spending your day aboard Captain Bob’s 40’ Mediterranean sportfishing boat. The vessel has plenty of room aboard for six guests and is fitted out with all the essentials for an awesome fishing trip.
The boat has the latest electronics and navigational equipment to make sure you are always fishing in the right place. She also has outriggers to let you troll for fast-moving Tuna, and a livewell for the freshest live bait.
To keep you comfortable on long offshore trips, the boat has an enclosed head, and a spacious interior complete with a galley, cabin, and room to rest and relax after wrestling in difficult fish.
Captain Bob has been fishing these waters for well over a decade and knows all the best spots for each species. On half day trips, you will be taken around the local bays and inshore waters, searching for tasty Rockfish and Calico Bass.
If you book in for a full day, then what you catch is up to you. You can stay in the shallows, fishing along the coastline or around Catalina Island. If you are after more adventure, head offshore in search of big Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and other top pelagic species.
No matter what you do, you can rely on using nothing but the best fishing tackle, with a choice of weight classes set up for trolling, bottom fishing, jigging, and popping to help bring in anything the Pacific ocean can throw at you.
All First Dawn Charters trips come with tackle, bait, and lures. The crew will also fillet all your fish for you at the end of the day, ready to cook up as soon as you get home.
