Depending on the season, you might hook into Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, Sailfish, Black Marlin, Striped Marlin, Pacific Barracuda, Grouper, Snapper, and whatever else is biting.

On these trips, you can expect to troll and bottom fish using light or heavy tackle. The charter specializes in casting for Roosterfish. Capt. Luis also offers fly fishing, but you may need to bring your own fly gear.

Trips with Dockside Adventures are kid-friendly, so the whole family can come and unplug for the day!  Also, remember to bring snacks – luckily, Capt. Luis will have some on board!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 40’ Eduardo center console with space for 5 passengers. It has all the essentials. Rods, reels, and tackle are provided, as well as lures. Live bait is included.

There will be a First Mate on board to help your trip run smoothly. It’s customary to tip the Mate 10–20% to show your appreciation.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, just show up ready for some fishing! Some fish have special regulations, including when you can keep them. If you don’t know what to expect, ask the captain. It’s recommended to bring sunglasses and sunscreen. There will be bottled water and ice onboard.

With great knowledge of the area, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
