We had some dandy trips this year, beginning with our 2 day charters on
the Eclipse, 4 day'rs on the Red Rooster (with an epic trip in
September), the 6 day aboard the Royal Polaris which is on the water at
the end of September and wrapping up with an 8 day charter back aboard
the Red Rooster in November.

For 2014 we'll again
have a 4 day trip in July on the Rooster, our September trip will be 5
days, followed by 6 days on the Royal Polaris and an 8 day charter on
the Rooster. We will add a co-sponsored trip on the Intrepid in June.
Specific dates will be posted here as soon as they are available, and
it's a strong recommendation to sign up early. The 2013 trips all filled
quickly, with two of them sold out by December...
For 2013, we'll run the same
trips with late summer and fall dates plus add the Red Rooster in July! This year we'll sponsor four trips aboard San
Diego based Long Range boats.
Our first scheduled long
range trips are yearly favorites of mine, a couple great 4 day
mini-long range trips aboard the Red Rooster III. In past years Guadalupe Island
has been a planned destination. However for the past few years Guadalupe
has been closed. It's doubtful that we'll visit this island this year
given restrictions and available time. Nonetheless, this is a wonderful trip, relaxed pace,
and plenty of action. It's
a good trip to bring along a kid or even wife if you're wanting them to have the
experience of a long range trip. The Rooster is very accommodating, and their
deckhands will ensure that a novice enjoys the fun.
A few weeks later we'll have
our second fall trip, in late September. This one is a 6 day long range trip on the Royal
Polaris, with Alijos Rocks the planned destination if the conditions are right
for that area, if not we'll seek tuna, doroado and yellowtail from other
Our final trip of 2012 will be our 8 day Long Range trip in
November aboard the Red Rooster III. This will be a dandy as well, with planned
visits to the Ridge, perhaps Alijos Rocks and/or Guadalupe. I don't see
how we can have a better trip than we did in 2010, with great tuna
fishing and some cow sized tuna coming over the rail in the 200-300#
class. Visit our 2010 trip
report for that ride, what a trip! This is a great trip, and one you
will enjoy. It's also a value, especially so if you consider how much
accommodations are at a hotel should you take a more mundane vacation.
And, on a long range trip, you even come back with fish!
If you can spare the time,
get on one of our charters! These charters are all are great trips, with plenty of variety in the catch, and
offer an experience you'll long remember aboard the best boats in the
fleet, and the finest crews to assist you. For 2012 all the trips are
offered at a better price than in previous years, with additional
incentives tossed your way by CharkBait.
For this year's 4 day
and over charters we'll
again be supplying free commemorative tee shirts to each guest, and some
exceptional gifts for each participant. On our longer 6-8 day trips, you'll
receive over $50 worth of very useful tackle aboard the boat, AND we will provide CharkBait
gift cards to the first 20 anglers to sign up for each trip. On our
shorter duration Eclipse charters we will sweeten the pot with free
lures or accessories for each angler and the first 20 guests signing up
will also receive a CharkBait gift card for $20.
Confused about what to bring? Please feel free to give us a call and
we can walk through things. As well, each of the boats have their own
websites which offer ideas (though if you bring all they have listed
we'll need a bigger boat!). We also have a list that provides some info
in this regard - click here.
(NOTE: Charter prices do NOT include
Mexican permits or some beverages (eg. you'll pay your own beer tab).
On the 4 day and longer charters food and basic beverages are included, snacks... Plan on being very well
fed. Shorter trips do NOT include meals. ) There may also be a fuel surcharge if the rates for diesel goes
above projected prices. Beyond that, figure a charge for parking and
fish processing if required.
