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 winter schedule has trips leaving Monday through Friday at 10:00 a.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 6:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
They're out there somewhere. White sea bass. Captains George Xenios and Mike Blue hunt the elusive fish aboard The Victory, a 3/4 day boat that cruises the Pacific and targets barracuda, yellowtail, white seabass, sand bass, perch, halibut, calico bass and rockfish. The captain is accompanied by a faithful crew and a group of passengers on this legendary sportfishing boat, 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.
At Pierpoint Landing, 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.
