Fishing Gear

Check our suggested tackle list to be prepared for your fishing trip. Check the fish reports before your trip to keep track of the size and type of fish being caught. Contact us if you need advice on gear before your trip. Each trip will start with a tackle and fishing seminar. Our tackle shop, Fishermans Landing Tackle, will be open upon departure for purchases and advice from experts. Searcher carries a full supply of terminal tackle for purchase during your trip.

Additional Costs

Jackpot (optional, usually $20), canned/bottled beverages (sodas and bottled water are $1 and beers are $2). We are proudly serving a San Diego craft beer, made by Ballast Point, for $4 per can.

FMM, a document which allows fishing within certain areas of Mexico. For this, $25 will be collected at the dock if deemed necessary.

See Schedule page for additional fees to fish at Isla Guadalupe.

Searcher apparel (caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts, beanies) are available for sale on board. Cash or checks are accepted.

Should a California fishing license be required (determined upon departure), this can be purchased at the tackle shop, as they are not included in the trip price. If you have an annual California license, bring it with you.

A fuel surcharge may be imposed if the cost of fuel has risen unpredictably.

It is customary to tip the crew for their service. 10-15% of the trip fare is considered a good tip. Present your gratuity to the operator or any crew member at the end of the trip.

If you cancel and we rebook your vacancy, or if we receive your cancellation at least 90 days before departure, 90% of your booking deposit and any other funds on deposit are refundable. Otherwise funds on deposit are non-refundable. No refunds after departure.

The booking deposit is non-refundable if passport requirements aren’t met to the satisfaction of Mexican immigration guidelines. Check your passport expiration date before you make your deposit!
