Background
I am an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide and an IGFA Captain/Guide. I have over 600 days fly fishing and light tackle fishing on San Diego Bay over the last 10 years. I also have 20 years of experience fishing all over Southern California and Mexico.
Techniques
I prefer to fly fish on San Diego Bay using 6 and 7 weight fly rods. Most of the fish are on the bottom so we use 250 and 350 grain shooting heads to get to the fish. We also can use light weight spinning gear with 6' test line. Kids welcome!

Went fishing on Monday, June 26, 2017

What a great day.  Booked this trip in the bay for my two sons first Salt water fishing experience and it was a huge hit.  Captain Bob was patient, knowledgeable and good company on the water.  He had us catching fish almost right out of the gate and we really did not have much of a lull in the action.    With the boys spin casting and me fly fishing, there were more than a few double hookups.  If I ever get a chance to fish in San Diego again I know who I will want to book with and I highly recommend his services.
Thanks for an excellent day Captian Bob.

The main purpose for me booking this trip was to get my grandson out fishing and hopefully have him catch a few fish.  Keeping the fish and having them for a meal was definitely not a goal, so the catch and release format was perfect. Captain Day was excellent!  He worked with my grandson teaching him casting techniques, explaining the “why’s” of what we were doing and he was able to catch alot of fish.  I would definitely recommend Captain Day.

Thanks very much John.  Sam is a great human being and a very good little fisherman.  I know you are a proud grandfather.  Pretty cool seeing the bonita boiling at the launch ramp, too bad we could not get him hooked up.  I hope we can fish together again soon.

My husband and his father spent the morning with Captain Bob, they had so much fun catching fish and they said Bob was good company! When I booked I thought they would be going farther out and catching huge fish, if that’s what you’re expecting this isn’t it. But they had a really great experience, caught a lot of fish and were not disappointed!
Bob was even nice enough to give them a ride afterward, I’m sure that’s not a service he typically offers so don’t expect it but it was very kind of him!

My son, Jack, and I wanted to take a father/son fishing trip together, while in San Diego. Jack is becoming quite the angler, so we enlisted the services of Bob Day.  He managed the entire trip and guided and supported us while we fished for the entire morning.  We had an amazing day, caught a lot of fish and laughed a lot as we competed for the most fish caught. Jack won!  It will always be one of our most memorable experiences.

I wanted to catch fish so I could eat then we fished in the bay 90% of fish in bay are not recomended to eat to much chemicals in the water in San Diego bay if I knew this when I booked the charter I would have cancelled it. Must say capt Bob was very patient with my grandson who is 9   tried to teach him what to do won’t use this charter again

Rob, I am sorry you were not happy with the trip.  I believe I told you before the trip that I did not recommend keeping any of the fish because of the possible pollution.  If you remember, the first area we fished was to try and get you a legal sized fish you could keep but the conditions were too rough for you and your grandson.  We also tried for halibut with no luck.  Good luck with your grandson Noah and future fishing adventures.
