Welcome to El Patron Sportfishing, where we offer the ultimate fishing experience for enthusiasts of all levels. Our experienced captains and crew are passionate about fishing and dedicated to making your trip unforgettable

You’ll target California Sheephead, Bonito, Halibut, Mahi Mahi, Lingcod, Yellowtail Amberjack, and many more, depending on the time of the year. Expect to use techniques like bottom fishing, trolling, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Whether you’re a seasoned angler or just starting out, we have the knowledge, skills, and equipment to help you reel in the big one. With our well maintained boats, top-of-the-line gear, and insider knowledge of the best fishing spots, we guarantee a day of excitement, adventure, and some great catches. Join us for an unforgettable day on the water and create memories that will last a lifetime.

El Patron is a 50’ Custom Delta Marine luxury sportfishing boat with room for 18 passengers and a toilet on board. Charter rates include unlimited bait.

Please note additional costs:
CA fishing license ($19.00)
Rod rental ($25 per person)
Gunny sacks ($2 each)
Fish fillet service ($1-$5 per fish depending on size)
This amounts to around $55 per person on top of the charter rate.

Check-in is 1 hour prior to the departure time.

Due to unprecedented fuel prices, we’re currently adding fuel surcharges to our trips. This makes it possible to cover operating costs and continue offering our customers a great fishing experience. Surcharges are NOT included in the charter rates listed below and will apply regardless of group size. These vary from trip to trip as follows:

1/2 Day: $200 surcharge
3/4 Day: $400 surcharge
Full Day: $450 surcharge
2 Days: $1,200 surcharge

A 20% gratuity for the crew (captain and 2 deck hands) is customary and much appreciated
