Default LA for work next week

Hi all. I'll be in LA for work next week and coincidentally I will be sick on Friday. I know absolutely nothing about West Coast fishing.

Anything worth fishing for in the LA / Long Beach area? I would be looking for a full day trip on Friday. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Fish can be anything that puts up a fight. I won't be eating it. I see a boat called Daveys Locker that goes out for yellowtail, White Sea bass, bonito, barracuda. Anyone know anything about this? The same company also offers an overnight trip that I can make which leaves 9pm the night before targeting tuna. I would just hate to catch a tuna and not eat it. None of the captains reports mention any tuna being caught on the previous trips.

Can someone help a lost East Coast guy?

Looks like a ton of rock fish being caught and a few sculpin. Maybe you are in off-season. Might have to rent a Ferrari for the day then.

Nope, not that exciting. I'm not a big fan of our party boats here but some guys love them.

I thought I was escaping the off season by going west! Thanks for the feedback. Maybe next time.

Hit Bloody Decks .com site to see what's up as well.

You can reach out to Bongos Sportfishing if you want to charter or maybe get a decent report.

Fishing's tough there with the water so cold.

They have what you mentioned and a great Mako fishery. Have to head to backside of Catalina to do any yellow though.

Good luck.

Default LA/LB fishing

There are two city of Long Beach party boats that operate at the Alamitos Bay Marina. I have been seeing a good number of boats launching from Davies landing. So, I think there are some rock fish out there. You might also find some halibut. If all else fails, there is the Sculpin brewery at Alamitos Bay---you could do some drinking!

Davey's Locker isn't a boat, it's a sport fishing landing. I wouldn't do the overnight for Tuna, still a little early. If you're going to do an overnight get on one targeting Catalina or San Clemente Islands. Rockfish season opened back up March 1st. There's also Calico bass, yellowtail, Halibut, WSB etc. I would stay away from Davey's, much better landings closer to LA. Get on a boat, go have some fun.

Look under landing counts. If you are interested in fishing out of Long Beach, choose Long Beach Sportfishing.
