Capt. Brian Morris grew up in a sport fishing, commercial fishing, and world renowned boat building community on the Outer Banks of North Carolina some 43 years ago, and has been immersed in that lifestyle and fishing ever since. He has fished all over the world, having cast his line in the east coast of the United States, Alaska, Micronesia,  Panama, Hawaii, as well as in beautiful Southern California. His best decision in his life was to make a huge effort to fish around the world, learn new fisheries, and explore different cultures. He has been fishing Southern California for 13 years now, and holds a USCG 100 tons Masters license. 

The Fin Runner is a 2014 custom Carolina built center console that measures a spacious 29 ft and is powered by two 2013 Yamaha four stroke 150HP engines. Capt. Brian had the boat built for one thing, and that is fishing. If there’s a big fish on, you can walk all the way around the entire boat to make sure it ends up in the fish box. Top of the line Raymarine electronics as well as Avet and Penn tackle will ensure that you’re fishing in style.

Capt. Brian employs a wide range of fishing methods, including deep sea fishing, fishing with live bait and artificial lures, sight casting, Shark fishing, kite fishing, bottom fishing, bay/ inshore fishing, and spearfishing. He targets a wide range of species, including Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Mako Sharks, Yellowtail, Hallibut, Sea Bass, and many more.

I grew up fishing for fun and work as a child. If we weren't fishing with my dad my mom would drop us off somewhere with our fishing rods and tackle and fish in the ocean, rivers, or sound until dark. Growing up in a fishing and boat building community really taught me the importance of the ocean and how it's food chain depends on we as a society to help sustain it. I love hunting for and catching fish but I also love teaching people about different species and how the food chain depends on each. At the ripe age of eight, I caught my first billfish in the Gulf Stream off the east coast. It was a sailfish and I knew from that instance that someday I would be a charter boat captain. Do what you love, love what you do. After working on all kinds of vessels from sport fishing yachts, container ships, to different types of commercial fishing vessels I've made being a charter boat captain my number one priority. At the age of 43, this is all I do for a living.

Awesome time fishing in the bay with light spinning tackle. Captain Brian is very knowledgeable and helpful. I will book with Fin Runner next time I’m in town.

We had a great time on our trip today!  Captain Brian was very flexible with our meeting time in the am and was ready to go when we arrived!  We are originally from Seattle, so we do not know the San Diego waters well and Brian gave us a tour of the San Diego bay and even took us out to Point Loma.  We fished for primarily bass and halibut and were fortunate enough to catch several of each!  My 12 year old son caught a barracuda which was pretty exciting and our rods were also busy catching lots of bait fish.  It was a fun filled morning and we would highly recommend Fin Runner Sportfishing for your next trip.  We will definitely be calling Brian again!  No fisherman can ever guarantee you will catch lots of fish, (even they can have bad days) so we didn’t really have any expectations and were pleased with the amount of fish we caught.  Brian is friendly and helped our kids with their rods when they needed help.  Overall it was a GREAT TRIP.  Thanks so much Brian!  It was so nice meeting you and we’ll be calling you again.

We booked a half day trip. We used plastic bait to catch live bait which took 1 1/2 to 2 hours just to catch bait. The initial report said they supply bait so we lost fishing time fishing for bait. The captain caughtthe bait fish, and only four or five little fish. The captain moved the boat from area to area because we weren’t catching fish anywhere. After the half day trip neither myself nor my two sons caught a fish. Overall it was a nice trip around the cove but we didn’t want a boat ride, we wanted to fish. It was a waste of time and money.

Mr Arevalos,
I’m sorry you did not have a great time fishing with me.It seemed you were having fun even if the bite was slow. We actually weren’t using plastics to catch live bait. We were using sabiki rigs which is a very popular and effective way to catch live bait here in Southern California. And for the official live bait hunting time, I never spend more than 45 minutes looking for live bait which we caught plenty of. Your two hour stated time is way off.  If you remember I brought squid along and actually took you to the Imperial Beach kelp which is not apart of my inshore half day trip. I was trying very hard to find you fish and burned a lot more fuel doing so! In addition, I gave you guys an extra hour because the bite was off. But, that’s fishing. I’m never satisfied with myself for any rating under 5.0! I take great pride in the customers comfort and satisfaction! Fishing is all I do for a living. So anyway, I’m sorry you were not happy after all. Better luck to you in the future.
