The Deal

  • $27 for a half-day fishing trip (a $45 value)

Captains Ryan and Mitch and their crew welcome anglers aboard the Southern Cal in search of sand bass, barracuda, halibut, rockfish, and other species. Crewmembers keep anglers supplied with bait throughout the trip, and they also sell lunch directly onboard. Guests can bring their own equipment, or purchase rental equipment (not included in this Groupon) such as a pole, gunny sac, and tackle. Fishing licenses are also required and can be purchased directly from Pierpoint Landing for an additional $14.86 fee. Pierpoint Landing offers discounted rates for kids and seniors.

The Southern Cal fishes daily at 6:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., plus 6:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.

Pierpoint Landing

They're out there somewhere. White sea bass. Captain Allyn Watson hunts the elusive fish aboard The Dreamer, a 46’ vessel that cruises the Pacific at speeds of up to 15 knots. He knows the waters well; after all, it’s that expert knowledge that helped him placed first in Hubbs Sea World Research Foundation's white sea bass competition for seven consecutive years. He's not alone this time, however. Today, Captain Watson’s accompanied by a faithful crew and a group of passengers, each armed with a fishing pole and a hunger for seaward adventure. As they drop anchor in the middle of calm waters, lines fly from all sides of the boat. It’s a bad afternoon to be a sea bass.

Allyn Watson is just one of the independent captains who works out of Pierpoint Landing. There, their eight boats occupy spots at the docks, ready to carry groups on fishing adventures that can last anywhere from a few hours to weeks at a time. Aboard the 75’ Toronado, Captain Ray Lagmay and up to 49 passengers take overnight trips to catch barracuda, rockfish, and other targets. Meanwhile, the Southern Cal and its leaders, Captain Ryan and Captain Mitch, snag similar fish during shorter, half-day trips.
