In demand!

Enjoy your day on the fertile waters of San Diego and Northern Baja with Captain Clowers Charters! Captain Alan Clowers is a local who has spent his whole life fishing the area, so you can be sure that he knows how to you on the fish!

Capt. Alan runs a 25’ Chris Craft Scorpion offshore sportfishing boat, restored in 2016. It can accommodate up to 4 anglers offshore, or 6 guests when heading out on the Bay.

For a productive day of fishing, the vessel comes fitted with outriggers, downriggers, and a livewell. It features a flybridge to make sure you don’t miss any action below. For your comfort, the boat also comes with beds and coolers for your drinks.

Capt. Alan specializes in a wide range of fishing techniques, and he’ll provide you with all the equipment you’ll need. If you’re up for a spearfishing adventure, make sure to bring your own equipment. The captain will be happy to clean and fillet your catch, so you can have a nice fresh-caught dinner upon your return.

He offers charters on the calm San Diego Bay waters, or up to 40 miles offshore on the Pacific Ocean fishing grounds. You’ll explore the Coronado Islands, 9 Mile Bank, outer banks, and artificial and natural reefs.

You’ll be using the best methods to target offshore species such as Tuna, Dorado, Yellowtail, Marlin, Wahoo, Mako Shark, Thresher Shark, Calico Bass, and Halibut. You can also target Bay species like Bonefish, Bass, Corvina, and Bay Sharks.

Trips include the use of all fishing gear, live bait, lures, fish cleaning and bagging, and water. The captain also offers boating lessons, as well as half and full day freshwater fishing trips on the local lakes aboard his 20’ Ranger bass boat.

Come to San Diego, explore the prolific waters of the Bay, and have an unforgettable time with Captain Clowers Charters!

Member since February 2016
Captain Alan Clowers was only 5 years old when he started fishing the bays and local lakes of San Diego, heading out with his dad and brothers. He has been fishing ever since and now knows these waters extremely well. He has entered various competitions over the years, and has achieved over 10 first place finishes and 8 Big Fish awards. He was named Angler of the Year in the Southland Bass Club, and has also placed in the top 5 on more than 20 occasions - not a bad record in San Diego, which is not short on competition! Capt. Clowers enjoys teaching kids and beginners, as well as with expert anglers, how to find fish in this area, and is able to customize each trip to suit your needs. A trip with Capt. Clowers will not only be a fun day on the water, but an experience of a lifetime!
