Widely known as “Surf City,” Huntington Beach is the laid-back neighbor of nearby Long Beach. Mile-long sandy beaches, big waves, and incredible fishing grounds make this SoCal city near perfect. Through exploring the Huntington Beach fishing scene you’ll get to experience this Pacific paradise from the best vantage point – the ocean!

The local inshore fishing scene mostly focuses on sand and mud flats fishing. White Seabass tend to be the most popular catch inshore, but far from the only one. Summertime means you’re up against Barracuda and Sand Bass, while the winter months are all about that Halibut bite. Head north of the flats and you’ll hit kelp beds teeming with the likes of California Sheephead and Calico Bass.

Serious sportfishing anglers have several options for fishing in the deep blue. Santa Catalina Island is the first offshore location you’ll want to check out. Yellowfin Tuna, Blue Marlin, and Mahi Mahi are all over these waters come summertime. Not only that, but the local reefs are swarming with Barracuda, Yellowtail Amberjack, and many more. For Bluefin Tuna action, head even further out towards San Clemente Island.

For an offshore trip, you’ll want to set aside at least a full day to make the most out of the action. This way, you’ll account for the 30+ mile travel time, too. Fishing success in the Huntington Flats is easily accomplished on a half day trip, however, you won’t be bored if you opt for a full day trip either! To find the perfect charter boat for you, head to one of the many marinas lining the Huntington Harbor.
 

 

Rules & Regulations

All anglers over the age of 16 will need to purchase a California fishing license before wetting a line. Likewise, Huntington Beach is no exception to California’s strict possession and size limit rules. To ensure you’re fishing within the law, it’s best to head out with a reputable captain.

January

The start of the year is one of those times when the best thing to do is to just stay inshore and go after the droves of White Seabass you’re bound to find there.

February

Inshore fishing is still the way to go in February. Whether it’s White Seabass, Calico Bass, or Halibut, there’s plenty of work to be done!

March

The water temperature slowly starts to rise, which means more fish to go after! California Sheephead, Rockfish, Lingcod, and Sharks are just some of the species you can find.

April

April is when things start getting really good in Huntington Beach. Trips to Horseshoe Kelp are especially rewarding this time of year.

May

Expect the Barracuda bite to be absolutely on fire, and it’s just one of many available species. Top-notch Calico Bass and Halibut action is pretty much a given.

June

Summer is here, and with it comes a good time for Tuna fishing. Yellowfin Tuna action will keep getting better and better as the month draws to an end.

July

Be sure to check out the amazing offshore fishing if you’ve got the time to do so! Catalina Island is home to Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and even some Marlin.

August

August is the last call for any offshore enthusiasts who haven’t had the chance to cast their lines yet. Enjoy the great Tuna, Yellowtail, and Mahi Mahi bite!

September

Peak season is over, but you can still have a great time with a lot of fish. Yellowtail Amberjack are still here in droves, and so are Yellowfin Tuna.

October

October is a good time to check what’s going on at the reefs. Plenty of Rockfish, Lingcod, and Halibut to go around for a fun day on the water.

November

The pelagics are pretty much gone for the year, but don’t let that stop you! With White Seabass, Sharks, Rockfish, and Calico Bass, you’ll be keeping busy.

December

The year may be drawing to a close, but the fish have other plans. Rockfish and Halibut tend to be the main targets in December.

I think early morning fishing is the best. I suggest at least half a day. The sea was very calm, hardly any waves and easy to catch the fishes. If you go deeper into the sea, you should be able to catch much larger fishes.

We are from Chicago and wanted to take our 10 yr old on his first ocean fishing experience! Although the weather was cloudy and cool, the experience was great! The captain was very patient and helpful with our son and we all caught about 3-4 fish! We’d definitely recommend and will use this charter again next time we are in Huntington Beach!

I booked this trip with Captain Eric to show my family how fun fishing can be and this trip was exactly what I was looking for. we caught plenty of good sized,hard fighting fish. The ride out to Catalina island was quick and we saw dolphins left and right on the way in and out. The captain and his first mate took great care of my family who don’t have very much fishing experience . This is a perfect trip for sportsmen or anyone trying to have a good time.

We had a great experience on the water with Captain Eric. My kids ages 3 and 7 had so much fun and caught all the fish they could handle. The boat was much larger than we expected and the kids loved the bean bag chairs provided while heading out and back in. Would definitely recommend and will be back for another day of fun!

If you like to fish and your looking for a private experience I highly recommend you book with EZ Sportfishing and request Eric as the captain. The fishing season hasn't been great but we caught Dorado, Bass, Barracuda and learned some new knots. This boat also gives you more fishing experience because you get to your location way faster then other boats so you fish twice as much as other charters.

Captain Woody was great! Worked hard to put us onto fish, and made sure we all had a great experience. Couldn't ask for better/more convenient boat to fish out of. Wouldn't hesitate to do another sesh with Full Spectrum SF!

We had a fantastic time on the Sea Monkey with Nolan. He kept us on fish throughout the entire trip. He was effective at managing all aspects of the trip, from boat operations to educating us on the different species of fish. It was a great day and Nolan was the reason.

I took my kids out for a private fishing trip for their birthday. The captain was able to show the boys how to filet the fish they caught which helped them get their fishing merit badge. We caught a bunch of fish! I would definitely recommend!
