Where will you go?

The surrounding waters are a maze of deep trenches and underwater ledges, with the blue waters of the ocean floor looming behind them. This is the dream hunting ground for big game pelagics, as well as the anglers who pursue them.
 
If you book in for a multi-day trip you can expect to leave the islands behind you, traveling 100 miles or more out past to the drop-off or down into Mexican waters. This is where the biggest fish can be found, and it is well worth the price of a passport for a chance to target the huge billfish and Tuna that live in these waters. A lot of charters heading out from Dana Point will be heading into Mexican waters, so it is always worth mentioning if you don’t want to cross the border.

What will you catch?

You can expect a mixed bag when Deep Sea Fishing out of Dana Point. White Seabass, Yellowtail, and common bottom dwellers like Snapper and Grouper can be found year-round. These are all great food fish and Yellowtail are very hard fighters as an added bonus.
 
But there’s one very big reason the crowds come here - Bluefin Tuna. The last few years have been great for this ultimate delicacy of the deep, with big fish in big numbers showing up over the early summer months. Add in Yellowfins and Bigeyes, not to mention the summer Marlin migration, and you will see that when it comes to deep sea fishing Dana Point is where you need to be!

Learn the equipment you'll be using before you leave the dock. Don't try and figure out a complicated reel set up without asking questions first.
