Where is the Best Ocean Fishing off the
Southern California Coast?

It's almost as if King Neptune himself gave schools of fish a map to the highway just off the coast of Southern California.  Deep Sea Fishing here could not have been any better.  Get a seasoned veteran to steer you in the right direction. Captain Steve of the Coroloma knows just where to take his boat off the coastal areas.

With over 20 species of mid to large sport fish, there is something for every skill level.

Repeating success for best sport fishing waters is an area just off the Southern California coast. This area known as the Channel Islands has been fished by novices and skilled fishermen such as Steve Volaski's family for generations. Captain Steve and his family at Hook's Sportfishing regularly see limit-catching days on board their boats like the Slayer.

Steve's son, Captain Chris, aboard the New Hustler, knows exactly where squid spawn and where the best White Seabass and large Halibut are lurking.

Choosing Where to Launch From

Charter boat fishing off Channel Islands while Sportfishing with Hooks Landing Crew -

Charting a boat can seem confusing to a first time sport fishing angler. Its difficult to compare trips and prices when you are not sure of the correct questions to ask.  So lets make it easy...

Choose the type of fishing you'd like to do. Read the next section for your choices

Choose the length of your fishing trip.  You could shore fish or go dock fishing for as long or as short a period as you like. Boarding a boat for Deep Sea Fishing would entail half day, three quarter day or even overnight sport fishing trips

Choose your fishing gear and tackle.  Rods, reels, line.. do you already own? ... planing on buying? ... First time out?  Why not rent your gear? At Hook's Landing in the Channel Islands Harbor you can get a quality rod and reel set up and then buy your tackle the morning you head out to sea. But don't worry about the bait - when going on our boats it is included!

It just doesn't get any easier (and it's a lot less expensive to start out).

Don't forget the boat?  You need the correct deep sea boat for the right trip.  I remember my early deep sea fishing experiences... I booked a trip with a large sport fishing company. I learned quickly what a Sardine felt like.  Although they had many boats, they didn't send them out - they packed us in elbow to elbow, with no room to maneuver and cheapening the fishing experience.

Although Captain Chris' boat could hold 73 people, he limits his passengers to a maximum of 36.  So even at full capacity, there is still plenty of room.

One more thing. Trips on the New Hustler are made more enjoyable with such ammenities as flat screen TV, stocked kitchen and bar, 2 bathrooms and a separate shower, oh yes... and the bunk beds!

What are the Extra Fees to expect on your Deep Sea Fishing expedition.  Here are some extra fees you should be aware of:

  • Fishing License for all over age 16
  • Fishing Tackle
  • Food and Beverages
  • Fish cleaning fee if you would like your catch fileted by the time you return dock (a great time saver)
  • Parking fees - Hook's landing in Channel Islands Harbor has no charge (Some landings are in parking lots with fees ranging from $8 to $15.)
