Galveston Fishing Charters: Feeling Damn Good Offshore
February 23, 2020

We’re kicking off our first Captain Experiences Captain’s Corner blog with a Trip Recap. Our trip with Captain Lee aboard the Tequila Sunrise was truly the trip of a lifetime for more reasons than you can count.

I met Mark at our Captain Experiences booth at the Houston Boat Show. I told him about how Captain Experiences makes booking a fishing charter quick and easy, and he was all in. He requested a 12-person Galveston offshore tuna fishing trip for his group of devoted fishermen, and that was that.

Giant West Coast BlueFin Tuna! Catch and Cook?
February 15, 2020

Hello again everyone! Today's blog is all about the top game fish of California, the Bluefin Tuna. In this article, we are going to cover our favorite fish to catch, and our favorite ways to prepare it for a wonderful dining experience.

This article is brought to you by Captain Experiences, providing access to damn good fishing charter vessels nationwide. Ok, let's get started.

1. The Chase.

In my opinion, the hardest to catch, and the best-tasting fish to roam the oceans. To catch a bluefin tuna requires a seaworthy vessel, the very best equipment, competent fisherman, good electronics, and lots and LOTS of fuel. Bluefin fishing is usually deeper waters and further away from shore. Around San Diego, there have been instances where Bluefin was caught as close as the nine-mile bank, but this is extremely rare and does not last very long. Most successful bluefin trips are multi-day and venture as far out as 250 miles from shore, for best results. Your other choice is to head south deep into Mexican waters to the outer banks of Baja, Mexico.

Sportfishing's 2019 West Coast Best Photos and Wrap Up. Bluefin were here!
February 9, 2020


The 2019 West Coast fishing season can be best summed up with two words, "Blue Fin!" Not for many years have these majestic fish felt us worthy to grace us with their presence. But this year, they did. 2019 was the year of the Bluefin's return all along the entire SoCal coast, the inner, middle, and outer banks, and especially along the San Clemente Islands, Tanner and Cortez banks.
