Shark Fishing California


Sportfishing in San Diego and Los Angeles includes Tuna, Yellow Tail, Halibut, White Sea Bass, and SHARK. Mako shark, Blue shark, Thresher shark, and even the occasional Hammer Head shark are caught on our trips.  We target these exciting species year round in Southern California. All of these species vary greatly in size and you can expect to see sharks between 20 and 1000 pounds. We use a variety of fishing tackle to match the gear to the fish ensuring an exciting battle with sharks of all sizes.                    

    In search of the BIG ONE??? We  also offer trophy mako charters. These trips set out with the intention of catching mako sharks in excess of 500 pounds! IGFA certified gear is used for these huge fish ensuring your chance at the record books. With several boats to choose from, and expert captains and crew, we provide you with the best chance at your “trip of a lifetime”.

    In San Diego we fish year round. During the summer we also have boats available in Los Angeles. Don't let the pictures scare you....Maybe you seek a good time with the family, maybe you want to give the world record a shot. Our kid and adult friendly crew can tailor a trip to your needs.

   Not into sharks??? That’s ok!!! We do other kinds of fishing too. Between shark trips we fish for all kinds of things. We have decades of experience fishing in Southern California!
