Prime Time Sportfishing Charters San Diego are full service including rods and reels (including new Shimano Star-Drag reels for less experienced anglers), bait, tackle, meals and snacks, beer, water, soda (all you can drink) and fish cleaning. You can bring up to six persons. The best tuna and gamefish bite is typically on an overnight or 1.5 day charter. 1.5 day charters have the benefit of fishing tuna grounds sunrise to sunset in the spring and early summer typically when the schools are further out. Unlike most San Diego six pack charters, Prime Time is very well fit for long-range trips if necessary to reach schools of fish that don't always bite right off San Diego. RSW (refrigerated salt water) fish hold for sushimi grade fish and Side Scanning Sonar offer premium-quality fish care and more time fishing. We go where the fish are!

Fish Targeted - Spring fishing typically fishes on anchor for tasty "Reds" Rockfish, Halibut, Yellowtail and White Seabass as early as March. Summer targets include Big Gamefish like Yellowtail, Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna and last year's El Nino even Wahoo or Ono were being caught off San Diego. These species are caught while trolling offshore for schools of tuna or under Kelp Paddies. Local half-day trips are fishing on anchor for Yellowtail, Calico Bass, Sand Bass, Rockfish, Lingcod, Halibut and occasionally Bluefin Tuna at the Coronado Islands where deep Yo-Yo heavy jigs or bait using heavy 6-8 ounce "Torpedo's" works great. Yellowtail are targeted year-round with summer months best as with other gamefish mentioned. Now with side-scanning sonar for even greater chance at spotting roaming schools of gamefish off San Diego. Read more Yellowtail Tips.
Testimonial from July 2013 fishing charter:
We just wanted to thank you and Prime Time crew (Brandon, Blair and Bobby) for a great time. We look forward to making this an annual event or more frequent. I have attached some photos. You will see by the smiles on everyone faces that we had a great time. Your crew took great care with my 14 year old son, Kevin, as he spent about 1.5 hours reeling in a 50 lbs. Blue Fin tuna. Thank you Prime Time Crew!
Ken, Kyle and Uncle Louie
