Captain Clowers - Any Minute II

Captain Clowers Charters & Guide Service invites you to San Diego, California, where you will find some of the best fishing in the country. Offering a variety of trips with his diverse fleet of boats, Captain Clowers is looking forward to showing you the bountiful San Diego Bay aboard the Any Minute II.

The Any Minute II is a 24’ Skipjack that was refurbished in 2017. This vessel comes equipped with GPS, a fishfinder and, most importantly, a knowledgeable captain who will put you on fish. On board, you will also find a bed and a sound system, so you don’t have to sacrifice your comfort for great fishing.

This boat is great for exploring the Bay, where you can practice light tackle, bottom fishing, spinning, drift fishing, and jigging for a variety of inshore species. Your targets will include the delicious Halibut, Bay Bass, Spotted Bay Bass, Sand Bass, and Mackerel. You may also get the chance to hook a legendary San Diego Bonefish or a stunning Leopard Shark!

Captain Clowers will provide you with lures and tackle for your fishing adventure. Whether you’re a family group or experienced anglers looking for something to tell your friends about (hello, Bonefish in California), these trips are designed to be a fun introduction to the area’s inshore highlights. Please be aware that this is not a “meat hunt,” but a chance to hook up on something new and maybe keep a fish or two for dinner.

With sunny skies and fish biting all year round, there is never a bad time for San Diego fishing. Let Captain Clowers show you that you don’t need to travel far to experience it at its best!

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!
