As usual the amazing crew on the Pacific Dawn put us on some big fish.
Mike, Ben, Hunter, Cody, and Ritchie did a fantastic job taking care of my 12 anglers needs. From helping my guys out getting rigged up, herding us around on the deck, making sure our fish hit the deck. Ritchie did a great job in the galley keeping us fed all day long. The PD crew are the best. I can't wait till next years annual 3 day trip.
The PACIFIC DAWN SPORTFISHING and the Top Gun 80 loaded us up with a bunch of 100lb plus Bluefin Tuna.

The PACIFIC DAWN SPORTFISHING returned with an incredible catch of large Bluefin Tuna this morning. 2 super cows, 6 cows, and 2 over 150#. They also had some nice size Yellowfin Tuna and Yellowtail. They were on a 2.5 day trip.

Finally got the gear built back up after replacing the stolen items And ill be on board for the 7th and 8th overnight trip. Cant wait be to be back on board with you guys.
A huge thank you to the Pacific Dawn, Captain Mike Nickerson and crew. As always our trip ended too soon but always enjoyable. Might have been tough fishing this go around, but everyone still enjoyed the trip. Welcome back Richi Lincoln Gill! The food was exceptional as always! From all of our passengers, we can't express enough how much we all enjoy this trip and we can't wait to fish with you next year.

It looks like the big Bluefin Tuna are starting to bite. In the last two days, our boats are seeing very good sign of Bluefin and have landed two fish over 200 pounds and 10 over 100 pounds.
Fish have been caught on the Sinker Rig, Flatfall Jigs, and the Kite.

If you plan on going on any trip longer than a 1.5-day trip please bring a heavy outfit. If you don't have a heavy remember we have Shimano Talica 20 and 25 with Calstar 770xh rods to rent.

Remember we need Reservations to get the boats off the dock.

We have 1.5 to 3-day trips through November.

The Condor has 1.5-day trips through November.

The Pacific Queen has 1.5 to 3-day trips through mid-November.

The Tomahawk has 2.5-day trips scheduled throughout November.

The Pegasus has a few 1.5 and 2-day trips coming up.

The Pacific Dawn has 2-day trips scheduled throughout November.

The Liberty is still having good fishing on the Full-day trip on Yellowfin and some Bluefin.

Good Afternoon Anglers,

What a season so far! The season is not over. Don’t put your rods away just yet…
The Yellowfin Tuna bite is still going STRONG with some Bluefin Tuna in the mix. Most of the Yellowfin are 15-25 pounds. There are some 10-12 pounders in the mix and some 40 pounders. The Bluefin Tuna are 30-100+ pounds and are in the same zone as the Yellowfin. The boats that have seen bigger Bluefin out west have had some success, but the weather the last couple of weeks has kept the boats from reaching them. With the weather improving this week, look to see some of the 2 day trips and longer searching for the bigger Bluefin. We have open party trips from Full-day to 3 day trips available on the Liberty, Condor, Pacific Queen, Tomahawk, Pegasus and Pacific Dawn.

Give us a call at 619-221-8500 or

How many of you went fishing over the weekend and capitalized?
We use our hoist to lift heavy fish in the shop - it’s more gentle on both the fish and our crew. 😜
