Sportfishing Trips - Don't Wait to Book for 2015

A lot of San Diego anglers this past summer 2014 missed out on some of the best days sportfishing by waiting until the last minute to book from full boats. It was my busiest year since 1997 booking trips and I never like when I can't place a group or spot on a boat and trip that meets their goals and dates fishing.

Prime Time Sportfishing San Diego Monday Sept. 30, 2013 -

Hi Mark, We just wanted to thank you and Prime Time crew (Brandon, Blair and Bobby) for a great time. We look forward to making this an annual event or more frequent. I have attached some photos. You will see by the smiles on everyone faces that we had a great time. Your crew took great care with my 14 year old son, Kevin, as he spent about 1.5 hours reeling in a 50 lbs. Blue Fin tuna. Thank you Prime Time Crew!


Ken, Kyle and Uncle Louie


I hope my excitement for this and my appreciation to you are evident in this email. I have added a precious experience to my life that I wouldn't have accomplished without you. A "thank you" is not enough but I can't find words big enough to show you my appreciation. Maybe one day we can fish together!

Your friend,

Carlsbad, CA 92011
