Default San Diego Fishing Charters in March?

Hey guys,


3 friends and I are planning a trip to San Diego in mid March, kind of a business and pleasure trip, and we were wondering if it's worth while to book a fishing trip while we are in the area.


I mostly fish in the north east (Long Island Sound), and I have no idea if March is a dead time in the Socal fishing season, or what charters to what areas are good. I did a search and the topic has come up but mostly in the late summer/early fall when fishing seems at it's best there.


Anyone got any suggestions if a fishing trip in mid march is even worth the time and money? If so, does anyone have any particular charters or even party boats to recommend?


Thanks

Depends what you want to fish for and how long of a charter you book. Fishing for different species is good year round. Rockfish season opens back up March 1st. If you are only planning on one day just get on one of the local party boats for a full day or overnight trip to the Islands. If you want to spend a little more and have a better trip book one of the 6 packs.

Early spring fishing is a gamble. Watching the daily fish counts are your best indication if it's going to be worthwhile or not. Try either of these boats.

Honestly we aren't picky. Also long as there are Fish and there is some action we would be happy. There seems to be some trips to the coronado islands. Does that seem like a good plan?

Yes, there's a number of local boats that fish the Islands. During March you should catch plenty of rockfish, Ling Cod, possible Yellow Tail etc.

San Diego has pretty solid year round opportunities... it just depends on what species to target. The Coronado Islands are always a great destination as well. Yellowtail are always possible and as was already said, the rock and reef fishing can be great down there.

I run a 4-pack operation out of San Diego... BRINK expeditions. Reach out if interested & best of luck however you decide... www.brinkexpeditions.com
