Default San Diego party boat

Well... since I got the better half to agree to heading to Coronado for spring break...

Which day boat should I go out?!?!?!? Will any of them process the fish for you? We are staying at a place that has a kitchenette.

There a two fish processors - I want to say I used 5-Star last time I need some stuff done (smoked and packaged)

When will you be coming out? That would factor into any recommendation as to sport fishing. You're a bit of a hike from the landings if you're staying in Coronado. All the sport boats fillet your catch on the way back to the landing, so that's no problem.

For right on the beach accommodations, I'm surprised you didn't pick someplace over in La Jolla or Pacific Beach, but each beach has its own vibe, so it just depends upon your preference.

When we do a staycation, we stay at The Catamaran on Mission Bay where you get right on the bay one block from the ocean. They have pretty fair rates during the off season, but summertime ... forget about it.

Go to this website - Allcoast.com and click on "Fishing Reports" then scroll down to the last four SoCal Landings on the list (beginning with Seaforth).

For each landing, you can see which boats are running and their days catch from the previous day. Early April the weather is finicky, but the loads are usually light, so you can get on at the last minute (with the possible exception of the San Diego out of Seaforth which is very popular and usually posts the best numbers).

That's how I would choose a boat if I were going out. Keep an eye on the reports and our weather and watch for the trends as your trip nears. PM me if you like.

Anyway, I hope you'll post back here after your vacation. We're not warm and tropical like Florida, so I hope you're prepared for April with a windbreaker and pair of Levi's. Have a great time!

Allcoast has been dead and stinking for many yrs. I helped Don Parent start that website 20 yrs ago. It's been on a sharp decline for a long time, most, if not all info is outdated and they also managed to lose all of the archived reports, information etc so it's pretty much useless... With that being said, check out the San Diego, great skipper, crew and boat. Booger is one fishy dude. PM me if you would like additional information.

Yep, the T-shirt shops sell a lot of hoodies because of this.

OP, if you decide to go fishing grab lunch or dinner at Mitch's at the Point Loma sport fishing pier. The beach in Coronado is nice sand and wide but the water is cold, March and April average about 60 degrees. There's a lot of good spots to eat right near your hotel though.

Head over to Point Loma several charter outfits there, some 1,3 even seven days long range boats that head down to Baha coast.San Diego has an untapped Bonefish population inside bay by Coronado flats.

You can also walk about 1/4 mile and rent a red skiff with a small outboard from Seaforth rentals. Fun way to puts around the bay to sight see and fish. The water is still cold, 59f, so probably not much biting but you never know.

Go with Mission Belle or the San Diego. San Diego docks out of Seaforth. Easier parking. Boats will cut your fish on the boat. If you have time, you could use one of the fish processors (5 star. Fishermans Processing,...). If you catch some yellowtail, might be a good idea as you can take it home vacum packed.
