Deep Sea Fishing in San Diego

There’s a reason why San Diego is considered the best fishing spot in California, and one of the best in the world! There’s a multitude of different ways to fish, but if you really want to take advantage of the largest sport fishing fleet in the world, hop aboard a San Diego deep sea fishing charter.

Heading 20–40 miles offshore will instantly put you in the realm of monster fish. Most notably, anglers come to San Diego to hook delicious Yellowfin and monster Bluefin Tuna. Come summertime, boats will flock towards Catalina and Coronado Islands to hook them. While you’re out there, you may also come across equally exciting Mahi Mahi and Striped and Blue Marlin.

A year-round target you can always count on is Yellowtail Amberjack. These delicious fish put up a great fight pound-for-pound and are widespread throughout Southern California. If you want to take a break from trolling for pelagic fish, you can also deep drop for Rockfish and Lingcod.

Heading out on a San Diego deep fishing trip is a worthwhile commitment. You’ll need to spend at least 12 hours on the water to get to really fertile grounds. If you have time to spare, don’t miss out on the opportunity to go on a long-range fishing trip. Spending multiple days on the water will give you the chance to dip your rod in both Californian and Mexican waters or try out more complex techniques like spearfishing.

San Diego is famous for its huge charter fleet. Head down to any marina along the coast and there’s likely to be a knowledgeable captain with a sportfishing machine ready to take you offshore.

Tuna fishing down here can always be a hit or miss, avoid those days after a full moon and you should be able to get on them.
