CharkBait Charter Schedule and Boat Information
Long Range Trips from San Diego CA

2019 TRIPS

We may have a couple shorter range trips, arrangements are not concluded yet so stay tuned. We will probably add a trip or two aboard the Tribute...

Our Long Range trips repeat the schedule of prior years, three charters on the Red Rooster III and one aboard the Royal Polaris, and we are now working with the Tribute for shorter trips.

LONG RANGE CHARTERS - Seaforth, H & M and Fisherman's Landing

August 29 2019 Thursday Departure - 5 Day Charter aboard the
Red Rooster III - This is ALWAYS a memorable trip and one of my favorites over the past 18+ years!
(Tyically schoolie Yellowfin Tuna & Yellowtail. We'll see where we go this year, could be bluefin, could be Guadalupe, wherever we go, this particular charter has always been absolutely wonderful.)  Check the video on our YouTube channel - CharkBait USA

September 26 2019 Thursday Departure - 6 Day Charter aboard the
Royal Polaris Fisherman's Landing - It's been excellent thru the years!
(This should again be a Guadalupe Island trip for Yellowfin Tuna and Yellowtail)

October 28 2019 Monday Departure - 8 Day Charter aboard the Red Rooster III  H&M Landing - Here's your shot at wahoo and more.  An 8 day charter provides more opportunities and more variety.
(Likely the Ridge or Alijos Rocks - Wahoo, Yellowtail and Tuna are the targets)

There you'll find videos of most of our charters.

From our 2017 5 Day Charter aboard the Red Rooster III


For this year's 5 day and over charters we'll again be supplying free commemorative tee shirts to each guest, and some useful gifts for each participant. CharkBait $25 gift cards to the first 20 anglers to sign up for each trip. 

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. For the Mexico trips, a passport is a good thing to have, and may be required by the boat.

(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. Tips: plan on exceptional service to be provided by staff, so keep an extra 15-20% of the cost of trip for covering appropriate tips. Jackpots are also not included in the costs below. Beyond that, figure a charge for parking and fish processing if required, and that's about all the additional expenses to plan for on one of these trips.

We may add some shorter trips to the mix...

In addition, there may be a fuel surcharge should fuel rise in price. Of course entry in the jackpot may cost you a few bucks, parking, fish processing are additional costs, as will be soft drinks or beer. Typically folks tip the crew at the end of the trip, and that can range from 10-20% of the trip's cost depending upon your satisfaction with service.
