Hooking Up Anglers Since 2011.
San Diego was once known as the Tuna Fishing Capital of the World until the late 1970’s, with over 40,000 people employed in the tuna industry. However, it is still one of the best destinations to catch giant Yellowfin Tuna and is now known as the home of the Long Range Fleet, with many boats offering trips to anglers in the Mexican waters south of the border.
Offshore fishing San Diego and the Baja coast is productive for catching some of the largest Yellowfin Tuna in the world, as well as Wahoo, Dorado (Dolphinfish), Bluefin, and Bigeye Tuna. The late summer and fall offers the biggest Yellowfin cows. The Long Range Fleet can provide multi day and week long trips for a true fishing vacation.
Bottom and kelp bed fishing around San Diego waters provides excellent opportunities to catch Yellowtail, Sculpin, Sharks, various Rockfish, Rock Cod, Sand Bass, and Calico Bass nearly all year round. Halibut frequent the area during spring, fall and winter. Large White Sea Bass are thick during the spring and are often caught on squid. There is also good fishing for Barracuda, and Bonito in the summer.
