TUNA NOW BITING CLOSE TO HOME SAN DIEGO Sept.3,2014
A few helpful tips - Tuna, Yellowtail and even a few Albacore Tuna recently 15 miles from San Diego are being caught. This has been one of the best fishing season's on record in San Diego. Be aware tuna are not caught typically sitting on anchor and instead the boat trolls around looking for a variety of signs in and on the water. This type of fast fishing requires teamwork and catches some anglers off guard so be ready. Take a 20#, 30# and 40" rig if you have it with a variety of size 2 to 2/0 live bait hooks as you will be using Sardines or Anchovies. Also take along Iron jigs both heavy and lights.

The Year for Big Eye - August 20, 2014 by Rob
I recall the last time the fishing off Southern California and San Diego was this great the Big Eye Tuna made a show late in the summer and lasted into the fall. Marlin as well. These have been my predictions and many captain's since last month. This is THE season to fish off San Diego if you haven't yet. Some overnight boats are limiting on Yellowfin Tuna and Yellowtail by 9-10AM! This is fishing old timers haven't seen in decades and some anglers have never experienced. BOOK NOW

Southern California sportboat fishing comes down to two types of trips open party (public) and charter trips. Open party fishing is typically booking a spot on a boat by calling or visiting the landing and giving a credit card number. Chartering, and being a charter master, brings with it duties that range in complexity, but always involve talking directly with the captain and/or boat's office to coordinate the dates, deposits, any sponsors and eventuality
