The Fishing In San Diego Is Excellent

Aug 26, 2008
Come to San Diego and you will end up sitting on the beach. As you are, you will probably notice the boats cruising offshore with people fishing. Simply put, the fishing off the coast is tremendous and makes for a good day trip.

Deep sea fishing is a niche of fishing unto its own. You board a boat at the crack of dawn and head out a few miles to quality fishing spots. If you prefer, there are longer trips that take you out to the big fish like tuna over three or four days.

Mix warm flowing water and nutrients and you will get kelp beds. Kelp beds are magnets for a wide variety of fish, which make them excellent fishing grounds. This is exactly what you find off the coast of San Diego.

So, what can you expect to catch? The fish include barracuda, Dorado, white sea bass, sand bass, calico bass, and mackerel. Take a longer trip out to the 60 mile point and you can catch Skipjack, Albacore and a variety of big Tuna.

The boat trip options in San Diego really come down to two spots. In the center of town, you will find a number of boats leaving from San Diego Harbor. Oceanside is the second spot in the North County area. You can also charter a boat, but bring your big wallet.

The deep sea boating operations in San Diego range from the slick corporate option to the salty dog captain on his own boat. Each has pros and cons, so you will just have to go with whatever grabs you as a good choice.

With three boats, San Diego Sportfishing, Inc., is one of the larger operations in San Diego. Based in Point Loma, the outfit focuses on one day or partial day trips, but is available for longer trips if you want to charter the boat.

Up the coast in Oceanside, you can charter a 32 foot Rodovich Sportfisher via the Fish Taxi charter. Captained by Don Nelson, this is a much more personal experience than one would find with the San Diego Sportfishing operation.

A quick word of caution about deep sea fishing. If it is your first time, make sure you are prepared. Early mornings on the water are going to be cold, so dress appropriately. As the day heats up, so will you. Layered clothing is advisable.

The second issue to consider is sea sickness. The boat is going to roll, even if it is a large boat. Yes, we are all tough men and women, but it does not really matter. Getting sea sick on a trip is horrific. Make sure to take sea sickness preventive measures.

Deep sea fishing off the San Diego coast is an absolute blast. You will have a great time and are almost assured to catch more than a few fish. After you come back, get ready to fire up the barbeque.
