About our So-cal saltwater fishing
We are lucky to be living next to some of the most fun and diverse fisheries in the world. Not too far from the Los Angeles landings, we have the beautiful Catalina Island. Home to fish like Calico Bass, Pacific Bonito, and yellowtail! Looking to go further from shore? Not a problem, head to San Clemente Island where only 10 miles offshore you have a chance at Bluefin Tuna and at those massive Clemente yellowtail!
A side of So-Cal fishing that is often overlooked is the phenomenal kelp and rock fishing. Days full of fishing and to finish it off great eating. In our local kelps you have a shot at White Sea Bass, Calicos, and those tasty Sheepshead. Don’t sleep on the surf fishing either, all along the California shoreline there is some fun fishing. There’s a few different species that are targeted along the shore such as Halibut and Perch.
