According to customer reviews, Breakwall Fishing – Weekday Trips, All Harbors Charter – Long Beach, and Breakwall Fishing – Weekend Trips are some of the most popular fishing charters in Long Beach, California. Full list of top fishing charters in Long Beach.

Breakwall Fishing – Weekday Trips, All Harbors Charter – Long Beach, and Breakwall Fishing – Weekend Trips all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Long Beach.

The most popular fish species you can target are Yellowtail Amberjack, Pacific Barracuda, and White Seabass. Top fishing techniques include deep sea fishing, bottom fishing, and light tackle. Nearshore fishing, offshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

In Long Beach, life revolves around the water. This Southern California city has stunning beaches, a huge downtown port, and, of course, fantastic angling. Hop aboard a Long Beach fishing charter and see why many of the surrounding waterways are considered the birthplace of modern day sportfishing.

Long Beach’s inshore waters consist of rocky bottoms teeming with California Halibut and Rockfish. Pair that with vibrant kelp beds stocked with Calico Bass, White Seabass, and California Sheephead and you’ve got an action-packed, year-round fishery.

Long Beach’s crowning jewel, however, is its proximity to Catalina Island. Travel just 20 miles from the coast and you’ll come across Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Blue Marlin. Head an additional 30 miles out and you’ll reach San Clemente Island, a haven for Yellowtail Amberjack. Lastly, if you want to fish the open waters, numerous honey holes lie all the way up to 60 miles from the mainland, offering trophy-sized fish.

If you’re planning on fishing near Catalina Island or beyond, your best bet is to set aside enough time for a full day or extended full day trip. This way, you’ll account for travel time and give yourself your best shot at a trophy! Inshore fishing happens within 10 miles of shore and a half day trip provides a great introduction to the waters.

There are two main starting points in Long Beach: Long Beach Shoreline Marina and Alamitos Bay Marina. The former departs from downtown Long Beach, whereas the latter is located south of downtown, towards Seal Beach.

Rules & Regulations

Recreational anglers need to purchase a fishing license either online or at authorized California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) counters. California fisheries are heavily regulated, with possession limits, minimum sizes, and seasons changing from year to year. It’s best to head out with a knowledgeable captain to ensure you’re fishing within the law.

January

If nothing else, you can count on the iconic Calico Bass to save the trip. Fishing is slow for some species, but you can sample some nice Halibut and Sculpin.
 

February

The offer starts expanding as you can know catch highly praised White Seabass. Halibut are also out there in the water. Board a charter and go get some feisty Calico Bass.

March

As the temperature goes up, many more fish start showing up. You can target Sheepshead, Scuplin, Rock Cod, Halibut. If you want more Bass action, White Bass are ready as ever, and Calico will follow.

April

The spring is here in full swing, and anglers can get bags full of nice pelagics and bottom dwellers. Calico and White Seabass are on fire, with more Sculpin, Rock Cod, Sheepshead, and Halibut ready to take the bait.

May

Barracuda are showing up, so you may want to get to the Huntington Flats and explore the local fisheries. You can also get insane Sand Bass. Expect non-stop action with Halibut, Lingcod, Yellowtail, and White Seabass.

June

It’s getting hot. The summer days are here, which means things are about to get nasty both inshore and offshore. Barracuda, Bluefin, Yellowfin Tuna, more Calico Bass, and Bonito and Albacore in full swing.

July

Offshore you can get super game fish. Head to the Catalina Island, and get Mahi, impressive Black Seabass, Tuna, and Marlin. Around the flats there are Barracuda and Bass.

August

Giant fish are still here and your fishing trip can easily get you a trophy size catch. Black Seabass, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi, Marlin, Wahoo, all available on a full day trip.

September

Summer break might be over, but these fish are not done with your bait. Yellowfin Tuna are hungry as ever and you can also sample Mahi, Marlin, impressive Bass.

October

The offshore game is still solid, with schools of Yellowfin Tuna hanging around deep waters. You can get also Calico Bass, Halibut, and Bonito.

November

As offshore waters see the last of pelagics, remember that Halibut are there, along with Calico Bass, Lingcod, and Rock Cod.

December

The fishing season slowly comes to a close as anglers reminisce their great spring and summer catches. A trip out of Long Beach can still get you Halibut and Rock Cod.

Fishing can be hit and miss. Usually good fishing with a good captain, boat and waters. Have enjoyed good fishing for sculpin, red fish, and bass. Great harbor just larger to exit than others.

There are many options this time of the year. The bass fishing in the local waters and at the islands are very active this time of the year. There is also a possibility of catching pelagic fish such as yellowfin and bluefin tuna. There is always yellowtail fishing either at the islands or just outside at the Horseshoe Kelp area.

Honestly, when the boat pulled up I was nervous. It’s not very big. But Cpt.Jeremy was awesome. He had a great personality and was a lot of fun. He took us to a great spot and we had plenty of bites and nibbles and caught some keepers. Jeremy knows what he’s doing, make sure you ask for him.

Took 2 boys out fishing for their 1st time. Captain Jeremy was great with the kids and very accommodating. We did have some troubles out there where our trip was cut short. But looking forward to booking another trip to take the boys out again.

It was a great day on the water. Within minutes of arriving we were on the boat and heading for bait. After loading up on bait we had a short right over to the fishing grounds where the action was immediate. Started the day catching Calico Bas with a few Sand Bass mixed in. After an hour or so we started to see the Barracuda run up and the fishing got more intense. All in all, it really was a great day on the water and I can’t wait to book with them again.

We booked this trip for my birthday and had the best fishing trip I have ever had. There was 6 of us and caught a lot of fish of which 30 were keepers. The crew and the captain were very accommodating and we had a great trip. I highly recommend booking them for your fishing trips.

Captain Jeremy was awesome. He helped us all the way from start to finish. Even though the sea was rough, we still caught several fish. We even saw several sea lions and a family of dolphins. It was amazing for our family to do this together. ❤️
