Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Long Beach

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

The most popular fish species you can target are Pacific Barracuda, Lobster, and Yellowtail Amberjack. Top fishing techniques include Bottom Fishing, Deep Sea Fishing, and Light Tackle. Nearshore fishing, reef fishing, and flats 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.

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.

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.

It may be off season, the fish may not be biting, but when you’re with your dad and homies out on a boat casting, reeling, and having your first beer as the sun comes up. It’s a good day. Better yet still made it back in time for kick off. The boat was big, clean, and relaxing. The crew was energetic and everyone had a good time except for a buddy that got sea sick.

Had a blast out on the water! Gerry went out of his way to make sure I had a good experience. Caught a lot of fish and he even cleaned them for me right at the end. Definitely worth the money and would highly recommend booking with him.

Only wish I had booked a longer trip! Put me on fish immediate, first cast caught a nice fish! Book trip in not such a great time of year for fishing, but Capt Gerry still had me landing fish and getting bites left and right! The guy knows what he is doing. Can’t go wrong. I will definitely re-book another fishing charter with Capt Gerry the next time I’m in town on vacation. Thanks a lot Capt!

The captain gerry was awesome! Very down to earth and easy to conversate with. The boat and equipment were in perfect condition. I'm terrified of open water but we did it! I felt that the captain knew exactly what he was doing and knew the water! Overall an amazing experience, if we ever do it again, we'd book with gerry!

Was on a business trip to CA when we decided to go fishing on short notice. Captain Jeremy was able to accommodate us and get us on loads of fish. I've never caught so many sand bass and barracudas in my life! I'll be sure to book him again when I'm back out there! Do yourself a favor and book a charter with these guys!

Pictures tell a 1000 words but that doesn’t say how awesome Capt Gerry is. What a great trip? An amazing boat, clean and well maintained. Capt Gerry knows the area and has a great network of other captains to lead us in the right way. Amazing day - great catch! We will recommend and will definitely come out with Capt Gerry again.

Kevin was so awesome. He was knowledgeable about the sights on the way out to our excursion so we got a little history lesson on our way out. Kevin had amazing equipment clean boat, fantastic reals and lures. He showed us all his techniques with live bate and lures and explained how each one would catch a different type of fish. He even cleaned the fish for us . Overall it was a great experience 10/10 would do again

Myself, son and grandson went out for a short excursion. We had the best time. Our Captain Kevin was knowledgeable about the area and super easy to talk with. He took the time to explain different nuances about the species of fish we were catchy. My 14 grandson lived him. Thanks Kevin for a great time!
