Wishing you could fish at Guadalupe Island this summer/fall?

Just a book a trip aboard Searcher! It was a long process, but we have been informed that our permit to fish Guadalupe Island this summer and fall will be issued soon. Please read the information below if you are interested in fishing there again.

For 2017, all 5-, 6-, and 7-day trips MAY include the opportunity to fish at Guadalupe. The actual fishing locations will be decided each trip by the captain, and his decisions will be based on best available fishing — determined by conditions and fishing reports. Guadalupe Island could be one of those locations or not. In addition we have added TWO new trips in November that will be “Guadalupe Island Specials,” and those trips will target fishing the island.

GUADALUPE SPECIALS for 2017:
Trip 33: Sat, Nov 4 – Fri, Nov 10, 6-day trip, 14 anglers, Ultra-limited load, $3600*
Trip 34: Sat Nov 11 – Fri, Nov 17, 6-day trip, 25 anglers, Accurate Fishing/Seeker Rods, $2340*

Searcher Aerial Propwash*FEES: Any trips fishing Guadalupe Island will require additional fees to access the island and fulfill necessary immigration requirements. We are estimating that to be about $250 per person, due on the day of departure.

As for ALL trips in 2017, a valid passport is required. Don’t miss out because you didn’t renew in time!

We'll be fishing Guadalupe Island this summer and fall! #searchersportfishing #GuadalupeIsland https://t.co/WCFs8bor7p
