Yellowtail Amberjack Fishing in San Diego

Yellowtail Amberjacks are prime game fish to go for off the San Diego coast. Two fishery choices include the SoCal waters and the Baja California waters.

The former will be more seasonal, with lesser numbers of fish remaining throughout the spawning season in the winter, but with additional resurgences of large individuals in squid spawning spots at this time. These fish will require more finesse, as they are more used to being fished.

The latter will produce larger, more abundant, seasonally more stable and less educated fish, but usually requires multi-day trips, travel identification and Mexican fishing licenses.

"Full Day trip on Fishhunter"

Paul Naglich fished with Fish Hunter Sport Fishing Charters on June 12, 2018

We had an unbelievable trip on the Fishhunter. Captain Marc and deckhand Brandon were awesome! We hit our limit on Yellowtail (15) also caught 6 Baracudas, and 4 Bass! Fun trip, check out my 25lb Yellow ... Awesome!

"Half Day Trip - Inshore"

Kamran Walsh fished with Fin Runner Sportfishing Charters on September 18, 2017

Awesome trip! A slow day of fishing but Capt. Morris persevered and we got a great Yellowtail in the final moments of the day. Also caught Lingcod, Calico Bass, Bonito, and Barracuda! Would definitely recommend.
