If you’re lucky enough to be fishing in Southern California, you’ll have a cast of inshore, offshore, and freshwater fish on your hands. This region encompasses some of California’s most prolific fisheries including San Diego, Los Angeles, Dana Point, and Catalina Island. Between a variety of lakes, rivers, flats, reefs, islands, and endless deep sea, you might be wondering where to start!

Horseshoe Kelp and the Huntington Flats are prime areas to hook into Calico Bass, White Seabass, Rockfish, and Yellowtail Amberjack. For offshore action and big pelagic fish including Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin, don’t pass up the opportunity to head towards Catalina and San Clemente Islands.

There’s more than just saltwater fishing on offer, though. Some of the state’s most productive lakes and reservoirs are found here, featuring record-breaking Bass, Carp, Catfish, Panfish, Crappie, and Rainbow Trout. Catch these creatures in lakes within Los Angeles itself, San Diego’s Miramar Reservoir, and the legendary Lake Castaic.

The amount of time you’ll want to spend on the water is up to you, but know that an offshore adventure will require at least a full or extended full day trip to account for travel time. The kelp beds, flats, and freshwater honey holes are much more forgiving and can be accomplished on a half day trip.

You’ll find Southern California fishing charters all along the coast, from Santa Barbara down to the border. San Diego, Dana Point, and the greater LA area are home to some of the largest charter fleets in the state and share many of the same fishing grounds.
 

Reglas & Regulaciones

Your Southern California fishing charter will include everything you need for a successful trip – except for your fishing license. All anglers over the age of 16 will need to purchase one beforehand.

Enero

Fishing in nearshore hot spots like the Huntington Flats and Santa Monica Bay is great from the get go. Start the year off right with a cooler full of Calico Bass, White Seabass, Halibut, and Lobster! 

Febrero

With average temperatures well above 55°F, you may just have a chance to head farther from shore! Main catches still include Halibut, Calico Bass, and White Seabass. Rockfish must be released.

Marzo

SoCal’s deep sea season is a ways away, but some anglers are already heading to Catalina Island for White Seabass, Halibut, and more! Rockfish season is just around the corner. 

Abril

In some years, Rockfish season may be open – giving anglers all the more reason to get on the water and catch Sheepshead, Cabezon, and Lingcod. Barracuda and early Yellowtail are starting to appear.

Mayo

Things are really starting to heat up around the Channel Islands, and we don’t just mean the weather! Bluefin Tuna and monster Sharks are now joining Barracuda and Yellowtail offshore.

Junio

Inshore fishing is promising as always, and the scene offshore has never been better. Add Yellowfin Tuna and Marlin to your list and see what Catalina Island has in store.

Julio

Mahi Mahi appear for the blink of an eye in July. In some years, you may be able to find Albacore Tuna when you travel out far enough. Of course, there’s still plenty to keep you busy close to shore. 

Agosto

You could practically cast a line with your eyes closed and you’re bound to hook into something around here! It’s Tuna, Marlin, Yellowtail, Shark, Seabass, Halibut, and Rockfish galore.

Septiembre

September brings a few big game species closer to shore than average, which makes this a great time to fish Horseshoe Kelp and the Catalina Channel for Yellowtail and Tuna.

Octubre

Deep sea fishing is starting to wind down offshore, but you can still enjoy excellent fishing in any of the hot spots close to the coast. Rockfish, Halibut, and Bass are biting vigorously.

Noviembre

Your chance at a trophy may have passed, but November is a great time to bring home fresh seafood! Lobster season is open again, and Rockfish are still legal to keep along with Halibut.

Diciembre

Bottom fishing will produce a variety of delicacies for your holiday spread, including Halibut and Lingcod. Set some Lobster traps for an extra treat!

Check the weather before you go out and pick a time where the water is warmer, this will ensure you catch the types of fish you're looking for.

Fishing can be hit and miss. Usually good fishing with a good captain, boat and waters. Have enjoyed good fishing for sculpin, red fish, and bass. Great harbor just larger to exit than others.

I think early morning fishing is the best. I suggest at least half a day. The sea was very calm, hardly any waves and easy to catch the fishes. If you go deeper into the sea, you should be able to catch much larger fishes.

Make sure to ask your captain what fish to expect or to let them know what fish you would like to Target so you are not disappointed or not expecting something else. We had fun because Capt let us know what was biting and we wanted to just catch fish. It's fun.

Fantastic experience! Everyone reeled in prize fish. Captain Ray and Trevor were terrific with our entire group (youngest to oldest). Very experienced fisherman and great knowledge of the waters. One of the best family experiences. We highly recommend booking your next fishing trip with Captain Ray on the Wild Goose.

Only wish I had booked a longer trip! Put me on fish immediate, first cast caught a nice fish! Book trip in not such a great time of year for fishing, but Capt Gerry still had me landing fish and getting bites left and right! The guy knows what he is doing. Can’t go wrong. I will definitely re-book another fishing charter with Capt Gerry the next time I’m in town on vacation. Thanks a lot Capt!

My sister, nephew and I launched quickly and safely from La Jolla shores. After we were clear to fish, we were on them and it didn’t stop until we did. A great day on the water, with a great guide who kept us on fish all day long.

I chose the Catalina Lingcod special with Capt Roger and it did not disappoint. Roger knows these waters like the back of his hand and was able to take us right to some of the best quality Lingcod Ive ever seen in So Cal. Quality fish after quality fish came over the rail until we had limits of Lingcod(up to 35lbs) and some beautiful Vermillion rockfish by 1:30pm. I would highly recommend Rogezac Sportfishing for your next trip!

Absolutely incredible. Eric was great. He knew exactly where the fish like to be and how to get them. Instead of sitting in one spot we moved around based on the fish and had a great day on the water. Caught a ton of bay bass and smelt. Topped the trip off with a leopard shark. Highly recommend.

Had a great time with Captain Gerald and Lowel. We booked this PM trip last minute after another charter had to cancel due to mechanical issues. They were quick to accommodate and get us all taken care of. Not a lot of bites, but that was more due to season and time of day. But our sons still both hauled in fish, including two sharks! Gerry and Lowel were both very knowledgeable and great with the boys. Definitely will be booking them for a longer trip when we're back in the future!
