Risen Tide Sportfishing is a new charter operation specializing in fishing San Diego Bay and the surrounding inshore waters. Spotted Bay Bass, Bonefish, Shortfin Corvina, California Halibut, Sand Bass, Calico Bass, and Leopard Sharks are just a few of the species you can expect to catch on a typical day in San Diego Bay.
This is a great place to introduce children to the sport of fishing, as bites come early and often and 20-30 fish is not uncommon for a half day of fishing. On top of that, the fish of San Diego Bay bite year round, rain or shine! Inshore you will focus on saltwater bass (Calico and Sandbass) as well as Yellowtail, Lingcod, Halibut, White Seabass, and a wide variety of tasty bottom fish.
You could not ask for a better vessel than Captain Eric Risen’s Skeeter SX240 bay boat. Brand new in 2017, she is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha outboard motor to get you out to fishing grounds quickly and safely. The boat has top-of-the-line fish finding electronics, a high-powered trolling motor, insulated fish boxes, and all the necessary safety equipment including life jackets for all sizes (children included).
All fishing tackle is high-quality, with Daiwa and Shimano rods and reels to ensure you don’t lose the fish of a lifetime. Most charters come with live bait, which is bought before the trip to save you precious fishing time. There are plenty of snacks and drinks onboard and all your fish will be cleaned and filleted free of charge at the end of the day. Just jump aboard with your fishing license and anything you want for the day and enjoy!
If you are interested in exploring nearshore waters with Capt. Eric, then please get in touch with him before booking your trip. He’ll happily listen to what you want out of your trip with him and will use the information you give him to check weather and water conditions, in order to make sure that everything is in place.
