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.
