Trip Report Don't just go Whale Watching in San Diego

Jump to last reply

Rather than just go out Whale Watching in San Diego - consider going out on a sport fishing boat (3/4 day boat trip is about the same price - a little more) - and you will not only see whales, but also have a chance to catch some great fish.

Each time I have been out Sportfishing off the coast of San Diego - have met some nice/fun people - and this cute couple from the UK (pic below - she being from Wales - he from England - near their border) had a blast.

She has a family fishing background - and caught the first fish - a very nice Mahi-Mahi/Dorado (nothing like she/they had ever caught before) - but he was shut out until the last productive stop and brought in a very nice Yellowtail. He was way above Cloud 9 and they both could not have been happier - smiling very wide for the next hour or so.

They are on a three week US holiday before they return to the UK to teach school.

Met another nice guy - a salty/experienced fisherman - Tony - who has a Sushi Restaurant in North County - Go Go Japansushi - and he is Chinese. :) http://gogojapansushi.com/index.php

And there were other nice people on our relatively light load - only 20 fishermen - including Ben - a surfer who goes out on the huge waves at Todos Santos - and a couple (originally from Washington State - who stay at their condo in Coronado) and they took their very well mannered 11 year old son out.

Unfortunately - they didn't catch any fish - be what a day on the water - as we saw two different sets of Big Blue whales, Rizzo Dolphins ( they are big/beefy dolphins that look something like an Orca/Killer whale http://tinyurl.com/c3q2etr ), flying fish - and also - on the way back in - some Common Dolphins were jetting alongside the boat and also playing in front of the bow - riding the wave it produces.

All in all - just a magnificent day, and yes, I was lucky enough to catch the biggest fish (pic holding it by the gill) - a very nice yellowtail. :)
