Fin Reapers Sportfishing
One of our top picks in San Diego. Fish the deep seas and nearshore areas along the Californian coast aboard Capt. John’s 35ft Luhrs. The boat is fully equipped for a sustained period out at sea and boasts a full, functional galley with a regular bathroom that feels like you’re in an apartment, complete with fresh water. Capt. John’s charter customers are always impressed with the boat’s use of space: she has a disproportionately large back deck that is perfect for a sustained period of fishing. A range of navigational tools are available on board to help get you to fish, and a variety of multimedia appliances will keep you entertained as you wait for the fish to bite.
Capt. John employs a wide range of fishing techniques and always looks to offer an innovative charter trip. On your trip you will be provided with Penn rods and heavy saltwater reels, as well as live bait. When jigging, Capt. John finds ‘Yoyo’ and ‘Tady’ iron lures the most effective, and the use of these is included in the price (they are chargeable if lost). Alongside using the standard deep sea fishing techniques, John is also a spearfisherman and is willing to offer spearfishing adventures depending on your experience.
Capt. John and first mate Mike offer a personable, full service to all their visitors. John has been fishing since he was a young boy and now competes regularly in some of the world’s biggest fishing tournaments such as the famous Bisbee’s ‘Black and Blue’ Marlin tournament and Los Cabo’s Tuna Jackpot. Mike has 35 years’ experience fishing commercially and on charters, as well as being a pro scuba diver. The team pride themselves on ‘spoiling’ their customers, so join them on a charter to experience their service and pick up some new skills.

I found Fin Reapers and they came highly recommended from a few of my good sports fishing friends. I haven’t been sports fishing to many times and the staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
We left from Mission Bay in San Diego and Chartered to just off the Coronado Islands in Mexico. I made a few big catches, it really seems that they really knew where to go to the best spots for fishing.
We definitely where not disappointed and have already planned our 2nd trip with a few friends.

Went fishing on July 10, 2016
We booked a full day trip for our family. We caught our tuna limit! Wow! All 6 of us caught fish which made for a very happy mood.
The Captain JR and his deckhand Joel completely exceeded our expectations. Couldn’t imagine anyone else providing us with a more enjoyable experience.
Thank you Captain JR for all the hard work and effort you put into making sure we had plenty of fishes to brag to everyone at home about.
