What anglers said about fishing in San Diego County

This was our first time fishing in the bay so we weren’t sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of fish we all caught. I think my youngest son caught more than 10+ fish. We didn’t keep any as they were not really the eating kind and they were mostly under 14”.

Every day is different in San Diego, the variety of fish available just out of the bay is what makes fishing here so fun.

We volume fished for Rockfish. Not a lot of fight but a lot of catch. We were pulling fish out after most of the casts. This gave those in our group that didn’t fish a chance to partake in the experience by preparing/ eating catch. Other fish may give more fight but fewer catches. Angler’s choice.

Be patient, be adaptable, follow TC's lead, ask questions, above all relax and have fun. Development of angling skills takes time. It's not an overnight success. If you are serious, jot down notes if you need to.

Action was good but not being able to keep Rockfish in October caught inshore is kind of bummer. But this charter did well to put us on keeper fish (whitefish) so still fun!

The great thing about fishing in the ocean is you never know what your going to get. Expected Dorado ended up with 25+Lb Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna.

We were told May is the start of fishing season in San Diego. We had fun but it might be better fishing in the next few months…
