Prime Time Sportfishing Charters San Diego is full service including rods and reels (including new Shimano Star-Drag reels), bait, tackle, meals and snacks, beer, water, soda (all you can drink) and fish cleaning. You can bring up to six persons. It's been great Calico Bass fishing for those short on time or want to fish local. The best tuna and gamefish bite currently overnight or 1.5 day sportfishing charter as we get into July. 1.5 day sportfishing charters have the benefit of fishing the target fish grounds sunrise to sunset in the spring and early summer typically when the schools are further out or anglers who like fishing the full moon. Unlike most San Diego 6-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 being caught!
You will need a passport for fishing Mexico waters. Gratuity for the crew (15%) is extra. Prime Time is one of the largest six pack (6 passenger)fishing charter yacht's in Southern California. We have been operating for 19 years. Call Mark if you would like to book a charter that meets any special needs and create the perfect fishing trip or book online.

The first day of summer is Tuesday, June 20th and with that the offshore fishing scene will only continue to get better. The water temperatures will continue to slowly get warmer and warmer in coming months. San Diego Summer big gamefish start increasing in the catch counts as we approach the peak summer offshore fishing season when Yellowfin tuna, Dorado, Yellowtail and maybe a few Wahoo and Opah (Sunfish) hit the decks more as water warms off San Diego. This is the time to book your sportfishing trip if you haven't already and fish with your private group of friends, collegues and family and have a spacious 50' sportfisher yacht all to yourselves while on a hot tuna bite. For Shark anglers, both Thresher and Mako are commonly caught off San Diego.
For those short on time, tasty Rock fish will continue to be good to excellent with decreasing boat pressure due to many local anglers fishing offshore. This will give the coastal angler an added advantage of catching various Rockfish, Lingcod, Halibut, Calico Bass, Bonito, Barracuda and some quality Yellowtail.
The Offshore fishing has gotten off to an early start and will only get better each month. More and more Bluefin, Yellowfin and Yellowtail will continue to migrate into our local banks in larger numbers, which will make for some outstanding offshore fishing.
I always mention and say again this month, each year I hear the disappointment on the phone when anglers call but wait too long to book their trips and we already have the dates they want booked. Consider booking your trips earlier this year as our calendar is filling up for the 2017-fishing season.
