If a half-day, full-day or overnight fishing trip is on your San Diego wish list, seasoned local charter crews make processing and transporting your catch a breeze. Just make sure you clear some space in your freezer before leaving home!
The rich fishing grounds off San Diego attract anglers from around the world, here to chase Yellowtail, Bluefin and other big game fish. But no matter what you catch, you'll want to make plans for the optimal way to take it home with you.

If your epic day on the water produces a haul too big handle, San Diego is home to America’s only sustainable fishing charity, Fish. Food. Feel Good. (F3G). F3G collects sport-caught fish and distributes it to charities for free. If you have extra fish you don’t want, F3G will pick it up from the landing and make sure it gets distributed to feed the homeless, jobless, elderly, disabled or military veterans. Contact F3G for more details.
