Southern California Daily Deep Sea Fishing Trip Reviews

Sportfishing out of San Diego is where I started fishing at the early age of 6 with my father. Here's a few trip reviews of my favorite daily open party fishing vessels out of San Diego and other Southern California areas. Southern California offers some of the best and most accessible sportfishing in the world for a very fair price. For under $100 you can get out on the water for a day and catch fish while having a hot meal and beverage. If time is concern, half-day sportfishing trips that depart daily throughout So Cal is unbeatable. Any of these boats can be charted for private groups. Have fun! Be sure to scroll down for boats North of San Diego.

Oxnard, California - Channel Islands Sportfishing

  • Cisco's - Channel Island's Sportfishing Center - Video's of the Channel Island's Sportfishing fleet of daily trips and charter boats.
  • Gentleman Sportfishing 3/4 Day - The Gentleman is the 3/4 day deep sea fishing boat out of Channel Islands Sportfishing Center in Oxnard, CA. We are located in Channel Islands Harbor right on Victoria Avenue. During the Winter and Spring we mainly fish for rockfish. When the water warms up we will spend time targeting barracuda, calico bass, halibut and sand bass. If conditions are right we will also fish for White Seabass and other exotics. We have plenty of room for big charter groups. If you have any questions please call us at (805) 382-1612.

Half-Day and Three-Quarter Day Sportfishing

1/2 day and 3/4 day public sportfishing trips departing daily from San Diego

Malihini - 3/4 Day - Runs daily out of H&M Landing.

San Diego 3/4 Day (boat called "San Diego" running out of Seaforth Sportfishing - San Diego - The only 3/4 day open party and private fishing vessel in San Diego providing an RSW - Refrigerated Salt Water and a fish hold instead of sacks, the San Diego has really proven to be a top competitor in the San Diego sportfishing fleet. Yellowtail really seem to like this boat too.

Chubasco II - 3/4 Day and private charter trips out of Mission Bay. Captain Ernie and crew has a great reputation for a friendly boat and catch record. Check his website for trip specials and half-day sportfishing trips as well at times.

Daily Double - Half Day - This is my favorite half day boat in San Diego. Captain Fred Huber runs a top notch sportfishing operation and his experience offers a great opportunity of catching fish and a fun day on the water. When Calico Bass are biting he finds them. If you should catch Fred fishing on a stop, watch carefully and take notes. I learned most of what I know about catching the elusive Calico's by watching him. Traditionally a very friendly and successful boat for open party half-day or by private charter for your group or event. For corporate charters the spacious sun deck, roomy galley and plenty of rail space makes Daily Double and excellent choice for group fishing charters in San Diego.

Fisherman 3 - Half Day Charter - Like Fred Huber and the Daily Double or Tim Green on the Premier, Captain J. D. McGriff is an excellent Captain and is very funny with kids. I took my nephew out for his first trip with J. D. and he has been hooked since. He made it as productive as fun. Another fine boat I recommend. Before owning the "F3" Captain J. D. ran this boat for years for then owner Tim Green who now owns and operates the San Diego half-day sportfisher Premier. J. d. is another excellent choice for a group charter.

Premier - Half Day open party and private charter - Tim Green's half-day boat Premier is the daily half-day boat replacing the Fisherman 3 (see above) several years back. Big 81' x 25' of beam with a low profile to the water makes her a stable and spacious fishing platform. Captain Tim has owned and operated a few excellent, reputable boats over the years like the Malihini, Fisherman 3 and now the Premier. As long as Captain/Owner Tim Green is in the wheelhouse I suggest a trip on this boat. After fishing countless trips over the last 25 or so years with Tim I am confident your group will have a successful and good trip fished as open party or private charter.

New Seaforth - San Diego 1/2 day and 3/4 day fishing trips. Another favorite, this boat is extremely comfortable and always offers a friendly crew and Captain. This is the closest San Diego sportfishing boat to the La Jolla Kelp Beds. RJ has one of the best catch records for Giant Humbolt squid which run from about January to April. Comfortable, large open party half-day runs daily but available for private charter as well.

Oceanside 95 - This boat usually fishes overnighters and multi-day tuna trips and occasionally half-day trips which can be a bonus for half-day fishermen wanting to experience what a bigger boat is like during tuna season. I haven't fished this boat in some time but she has always had a veteran crew both personable and excellent deckhands. Located in Oceanside Harbor next to Camp Pendalton Marine Corps Base. If you are a United States Marine stationed at Camp Pendalton, Helgren's Sportfishing borders the base in North San Diego County. Newport Landing boats are halos fairly close within an hour's drive North.

Electra 1/2 day - Electra departs daily from Oceanside Harbor for visitor's to North San Diego County.
