Call for price. This trip goes to the backside of beautiful Catalina Island. Behind the island is the Farnsworth bank and also the Northern tip of the island, both are notorious and prolific producers of White Seabass. Not uncommonly in the sixty plus pound weight class. Smaller examples are even more prevalent. In addition to hooking up on these beasts, there are many other rockfish, barracuda, yellowtail, calico, and halibut to be caught. Overnight trips also stay in Avalon harbor, so you can go ashore and have a beer and a steak if you like. 

CORTEZ AND TANNER BANK - Multi Day Trip

Go deep or go home. These outer banks are about a hundred miles off shore and represent the pinnacle of deep sea banks off the coast of Southern California. The biggest fish can be found here and when we fish here we are using our heaviest gear. There are big bluefin, marlin, yellowfin, as well as all the bottom fish you can catch. Very fast bite and usually not crowded (at all). It is amazing to see the swells breaking off a rock that comes within 5 feet of the surface over 100 miles to sea. The fishing is always exciting and face paced here.
