Pacific Mistress Sportfishing

Pacific Mistress Sportfishing offers guided trips for the big fish out of Dana Point, Southern California. With an experienced crew and a vast array of fishing knowledge, welcome to your best choice for a fun and productive day out. Stay inshore and explore the wealth of species native to California, or head out to the Islands and go hunting some seriously big game fish.

The Pacific Mistress is 36’ customized Sport fisher which comes powered by a reliable 300 HP Yamaha engine to get you on the fish quickly. The boat is very spacious, and can comfortably fit up to 4 customers, bait and catch. The vessel is fully rigged with state-of-the-art navigational electronics, which includes a Furuno GPS, radar, fishfinder, and a CHIRP radio. Customers also have full access to the electric stove top, refrigerator, microwave, DVD TV and bathroom.

The crew’s wide range of species includes California Sheepshead, Mahi Mahi, Halibut, Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, and Yellowtail Amberjack. On a day out with the crew, you will get an opportunity to explore the Santa Catalina Island’s waters, which are home to large sport fish. You will feel the thrill of catching Yellowtail and White Seabass, as well as Rockfish.

All ability levels are catered to, thanks to the help of the crew. With state of the art rods, reels, tackle, and lures provided, and live bait stored in an 80-gallon tank, you’re ahead of the game already. Whether it’s a half-day trip to target Rockfish or a full day out on the waters of San Clemente Island, you’re in for a treat. Just make sure to purchase your fishing licenses prior to the trip, and settle in for a memorable trip on the Pacific.

Explore the beautiful waters off the coast of California and have a fishing adventure you won’t forget!

I got into fishing from doing summer vacations on Bass Lake and I just progressed from Bluegill and Largemouth fishing into ocean fishing. I have been running charters since 2015, having earlier been a commercial fisherman. My favorite thing about running charters is all the great people I get to meet and make lifelong memories for them and myself. Techniques are constantly changing, every year or even every day. The ocean is constantly changing so you have to adapt to new techniques all the time. We’ve caught anything from big 200+ lb Bluefin to big Striped Marlin, but by far our favorite fishing is for our bread and butter fish: the California Yellowtail.
