Our guided fishing trips are great for beginners and experienced anglers alike. The waters along the Central Coast offer a wonderfully diverse fishery. Our guides have been fishing these waters for years and can help get you on the fish. The fishing season along the Central Coast generally runs from April 1st thru December 31st, with the best conditions between June and October.
Whether you have your own kayak and gear or need to rent some of ours, our experienced guides are happy to hit the water with you. The fishing in our local waters is usually very good with assorted rockfish, lingcod, cabezon, and perch being the most common species. At certain times of the year and when in season salmon, halibut, and white seabass may be found as well. Depending on your kayaking experience, fishing experience, and water conditions we can offer trips to multiple locations along our local coastline. Check our booking calendar to find available trips or give us a call at 805-773-3500 to discuss what will best fit your situation.
