There have been more large makos this year in San Diego than any year I have fished them here!


We should be catching makos in just a couple more months. Right now Capt Jack has been running all the charters and catching some good size blue sharks. Get your 2022 dates booked soon, before it's to late.


Here's a blue shark being released that was caught on a big tube fly. The sharkin has been good this winter, the most blues we've seen in a while. Check our booking calendar for open dates.


Coming in hot! Book your holiday shark trip while we still have open dates.


We're still catching a few late season makos and the blue shark numbers should increase as we roll into the winter. Give us a call if you want to get out!


Mr. Grinner brought his buddy to the picnic! Now it's a party!

This big girl has decent girth to her. I think a few dozen more sea lions and a couple years she'll break into the 1,000 pound mark
