Spearfishing in Orange County

When you’re in the mood for a different kind of adventure, the spearfishing Orange County has to offer is a very good place to start. With plenty of waterways to choose from and even more fish to hunt, this part of SoCal is a mecca for spearos, both novice and experienced.
 

What to Expect

If you’ve never been fishing before, but you’d like to give it a try, the best thing to do is turn to pros who will know exactly where to take you. It’s usually recommended to start in waters up to 10 feet deep, with a sandy bottom where fish like to hide and feed.
 
The main rule of spearfishing in California is simple: Don’t shoot what you don’t plan to eat. Spearos take pride in their fishing discipline being very environment-friendly, so they won’t shoot a fish unless they plan on putting it on the table later. The good news, there are plenty of delicious fish to choose from.
 
Various species of Bass (Calico, Sand, Spotted), Perch, and California Sheephead should be at the top of your list. If you want to go to deeper waters and test your skills in the big leagues, you can target Yellowtail, Barracuda, Halibut, and White Seabass.
 

How to Prepare

There are fishing charters that will take you spearfishing, but you’ll need to bring a valid fishing license, as well as your own spearfishing equipment, which includes a mask, snorkel, fins, and a spearfishing gun.
 
When you decide to try the spearfishing Orange County has, it’s crucial to be familiar with the rules and regulations. All that’s left to do then is put your underwater hunting skills into action!

Be flexible and listen to your captain/guide. If you want to target a specific species you. A but run the risk of not catching anything. The captain will know what is and is not biting. If they make a suggestion I would listen because they want to put you in position to catch some fish and have some fun. So talk to them and make a game plan before your trip and take their advice into consideration and you will make some great memories just like I did!!!

Don't hesitate to ask Matt any questions you've got, but don't have unrealistic expectations. Sometimes the fish don't bite, but most of the time they bite a whole lot!

We went early in the morning and it was a very smooth trip. A little on the cooler side but that was fine. The sun came out at the end of our three hour trip.

Fishing can be hit and miss. Usually good fishing with a good captain, boat and waters. Have enjoyed good fishing for sculpin, red fish, and bass. Great harbor just larger to exit than others.

I think early morning fishing is the best. I suggest at least half a day. The sea was very calm, hardly any waves and easy to catch the fishes. If you go deeper into the sea, you should be able to catch much larger fishes.

Hit up captain conor, and book a full day. Half a day is definitely not enough time because it goes by quicker than you think.
