Searcher is a 95-foot long, 24-foot wide sportfisher operating out of Fisherman’s Landing in San Diego, California. Fourteen cabins sleep two or three anglers each and have storage shelves, sink, mirror, and a 110-volt AC outlet. Each bunk has sheets, blankets, and pillows. There are four restrooms, two showers, a large indoor dining and relaxing salon, and padded benches on the upper observation deck. The boat is air-conditioned throughout.

Searcher’s bait tanks carry 250 scoops of bait for plenty of casts. Our 10-ton freezer with RSW (refrigerated saltwater) will store your fish until we get to the dock. There you can do business with reputable canning, filleting and smoking companies.

Searcher is a US Coast Guard SOLAS (Safety of Life At Sea) and FCC inspected and certified sportfishing vessel. We carry two 475-horsepower computerized Caterpiller engines and two 60-kilowatt generators. State-of-the-art electronics such as GPS satellite navigation, satellite phone service, radars, color-scanning sonar, depth sounder, and more keeps us in touch and on the fish!

I take pride in caring for Searcher and keeping all systems operating well. I make sure passengers are safe and well-fed with the freshest ingredients, and that they enjoy great fishing, with their catch preserved in one of the top systems.
