The San Diego


The San Diego found a few offshore today!
If you can swing it I highly suggest you book a trip to the islands this week. Tons of fish down there. We had a blast today on The San Diego . GO GET SOME!
The total experience created such a great memory for me and many thanks to all the Crew members and Captain. Their experience and helpfulness from Setting up our rigs to untangling the lines and getting the catch on board really was unequaled.
From the moment you board they wanted to take care of your concerns to help you be successful. From the marina landing to the Coronado Islands it takes about two hours. In that time you can set up your rigs or the crew will make sure you are ready and are glad to help in any way.
You will cruise at about 12 knots with a comfortable rolling pitch, keeping your eyes peeled toward the south and your destination.
You can relax in the galley dinning room or get a fresh cooked breakfast from the Master Galley chef. There are clean restrooms and the entire boat is meticulously maintained.
You will meet other like minded passengers from all over SO CAL and beyond, really nice people. Some are experienced fisherman, and some are first timers. The Crew and the Captain will do their best to help you land the fish.
There were several faces that were familiar to the Crew who knew them by first names, that's because they come back to a great boat knowing their chances of landing fish are very good with this Crew.
There are times of just cruising , while the Captain is scanning for the school of fish below. Then shear controlled chaos when he says bait up their just below and everyone gets there line in the water.
Almost before you believe it your line is tight and running off the spool then you stop the fish and turn it reeling like crazy. It seems like your arm will give out but you keep reeling and then there's that beautiful color of the prized Yellow-fin. If you listen to the instruction carefully of the crew they will gaff the fish and you can't believe you've got your first Yellow-tail. What a thrill, and man does that taste good on the Grille. Don't worry about cleaning you fish and taking out the trash, The Crew can expertly fillet your catch and bag it too! While on the ride back to the marina you can have the master chef make you a great bacon cheeseburger and a cold drink and tell of all the great catch you made. I really highly recommend the "San Diego" the Jewel of the fleet and their Crew, you won't be disappointed.

As we wrap up this season we would like to thank everyone who came out with us this past season. A couple months of maintenance and we will be ready to go. Don’t forget to check out our online store for your holiday gifts.


Limits of bonito and bottom critters in beautiful fall weather. Happy thanksgiving! 🦃🍁


Spent a good portion of our day looking for yellowtail but conditions never lined up. Epic weather and plenty of taco meat to go around.


Spent 1/2 our day catching “comfortable “ depth rockfish (180-200 ft) and 1/2 our day messing with very challenging yellowtail. 3 yellowtail (18-25 lbs) 58 vermillion, 59 whitefish, 11 sheepshead, 3 lingcod, 105 misc. rockfish. 2 yellowtail were caught on yo-yo jigs 1 was caught on the surface iron by longtime San Diego jig slinger Chris Perez.


After six months of fishing offshore, it felt good to drop our anchor, shut off the engines and enjoy the Coronado Islands. The wind event on Wednesday and Thursday dropped the water temperature 7 degrees, no sign of yellowtail today but plenty of shallow water white meat and decent bonito action. With a few days of stable weather, conditions should improve.


Our last trip offshore for the season resulted in 7 dorado and limits of bonito. We have switched the remainder of our trips over to fishing the Coronado Islands targeting yellowtail and whatever we might encounter. We need your reservations to run!


1 bluefin 2 dorado 27 bonito. Little bit of action in beautiful weather.


1 bluefin 2 bonito. Not many willing participants today. Canceled tomorrow due to lack of reservations.


14 mahi mahi 3 yellowtail. Saw 1 nice school of tuna that boiled on our chum but did not eat our hooks. We will be heading back to the islands starting November 1. Grab your inshore gear and your passports. Reservations will be very important for our Island trips.


18 dorado 1 yellowfin. We now know where not to be.


13 yellowfin and limits of dorado. Fun fall fishing.


Charter master Larry Miller with one of the 3 bluefin we caught today. We also had limits of dorado and a yellowfin for our 13 passengers.

Things felt a little tired after yesterdays big hits. Our Trench Shoring charter landed 6 yellowfin 3 dorado 1 yellowtail 10 bonito.


160 yellowfin 1 bluefin. Went the distance and it paid off. A couple stops on some pretty eager tuna. The prepared angler would have a 25 and 40lb fly line rod ready to go with an assortment of hooks from size #4-2/0. We also had some fish on sniper style jigs in the 60-100gram sizes.


Capt Matt and the boys have called in with 50 yellowfin tuna so far. Come prepared with a variety of line sizes from 20-50 lb and hook sizes from #4-2/0. We have openings for next week but they will not last long so call 619-224-3383 and reserve your spot.


1 dorado 23 bonito. Covered some ground with not much to show for it. Back out tomorrow hoping for different results.


48 dorado. Explored a new area and scraped up some fish on a handful of kelps.
