Captain
Kerim Hussainy

Member since July 2018 San Diego, United States
Background
Capt. Kerim has been fishing for about 20 years, working as a licensed captain and running boats for 7 ,Before that, he was working on 6 packs, open party boats, and long range boats. He found he has a passion for the ocean .He puts everything into getting everyone hyped about each trip. He is known to be a good teacher to newbies, and is amazing with experienced anglers -- he loves helping them attack the fish right away!
Techniques
Along with trolling a full spread of lures, We use many techniques depending on the style of trip. Fishing offshore for tuna and yellowtail our preferred method is fly lining live baits! Often times we fish floating kelp patty’s miles off shore , or finding schools down deep on the electronics and chumming them up with live bait! Our favorite method of catching bluefin tuna is kite fishing with a large flying fish! . And we love fishing inshore with a variety of plastic and live baits! Whatever the trip we have the gear and the technique down !
