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
Mexico Bluefin Tuna Ban has been lifted. More details as I receive them but it means Bluefin Tuna caught in Mexico can now be kept. 730pm by rob

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 events...click
