Trip Report

Guadalupe Island

Searcher has received permission to fish in the Biosphere Reserve of Guadalupe Island this season. So if you’re booked on a 6-day or longer, it’s one of the possible destinations. It’s an exciting prospect and adds another option for our trips!

Our captains will monitor the fishing and weather conditions and will determine the destination of your trip, based on the best fishing and catching opportunities.

C’mon tuna and yellowtail–we’re ready for you!

(NOTE: in order to fish Guadalupe Island, we must pass along additional costs for customs and immigration charges incurred in Ensenada and San Diego. We’ll publish those costs soon and notify all booked anglers in advance.)

Tackle Tip Thursday Vol. 41 (Hooks)

Today, we have Captain Art talking hooks, Owner Hooks that is. Owner Hooks has a new hybrid Mutu hook. It comes in ringed and unringed. It’s time to stock up before the season begins. If you are going to the Fred Hall Boat Show, Del Mar, stop by and grab a supply. If you head over to the Fisherman’s Landing Tackle Shop booth and buy $50 worth of Owner hooks, you will receive a FREE shirt or hat! What a deal!
