Grab your hat, sunglasses and sunblock. You might want a light cover up. And by all means, don't forget your camera or the Dramamine! We're going fishing in the Santa Monica Bay.
There are numerous reputable fishing boat operators to choose from, but for Sportfishing - Marina Del Rey the obvious choice is Marina Del Rey Sportfishing. They offer whale watching, open party trips, both half-day and three-quarter day private fishing trips, and private charters.
While you won't see them all in Santa Monica Bay, there are more living species of fish in the world than reptiles, mammals, birds and amphibians combined - 27,000! Aboard one of Marina Del Rey Sportfishing's US Coast Guard licensed boats, your goal is to pull a local game fish out of the water. What's your pleasure?
A prize game fish, 10-20 pound yellowtail, is caught throughout the year around the islands near Los Angeles. Sometimes finicky and sometimes biting like crazy, white sea bass are often seen around Catalina Island. You might catch a barracuda in the spring or summer, but these guys are so aggressive they could bite off your line before you even feel a tug. If you do get a tug from one, it's sure to be a fun ride pulling it in. Your best chance to catch yellowfin and bluefin tuna are in kelp paddies in summer and fall months. Probably what you're most likely to catch are rockfish, such as red snapper, whitefish, or sculpin. Great for eating, rockfish get as big as 15 pounds. They tend to swim in deeper water along the coastline and around the islands.
