Captain Shaun Uyeda of Pelican Sportfishing was born and raised fishing San Diego. His love for fishing began when his dad took him to Chollas Lake and Lake Jennings almost every weekend for some freshwater fishing. At the age of 10, Captain Shaun's uncle bought a sportfisher boat and once he was introduced to saltwater fishing, he's never looked back!
After witnessing his father fight brain cancer for 17 months before ultimately passing in 2018, and after Captain Shaun's uncle passed a few years earlier, Captain Shaun was reminded that life is short and should be spent doing what you love.
With his passion for fishing and sharing these unforgettable experiences with others, Captain Shaun earned his 6-pack Captain's License and has been guiding others on the water ever since! Captain Shaun has over 15 years of experience on the water, is incredibly boat savvy, and runs a safe and family-friendly operation in Pelican Sportfishing.
He looks forward to hosting your next day on the water for a bucket list experience you'll never forget!
Thank you Shaun for making an awesome outing for the four of us. We haven’t had a chance to fish out on the ocean and it was great. The kids loved it! The boat was the perfect size and created the perfect personalized setting for our family to celebrate our daughter’s 10th birthday. Our son LOVED learning everything about the boat, the equipment, fishing, and especially how to feed the pelicans live bait. :) The galley was well-stocked with snacks for kids. Your passion for responsible fishing is contagious—we hope to go out for another trip soon!
Captain Shaun was amazing! He was timely with arrival and very helpful with everything on the boat and helping with baiting the lines. He even had snacks and water on the boat! We did the coastline trip, so stayed pretty close to shore. Shaun took us to different depths and had us drifting while we fished. He was very accommodating and had us sit in several spots. We caught a ton of fish and even got to see a whale and a school of dolphins on the trip! 5 out of 5 stars! :)
This was our first ever ocean fishing experience, and I cannot wait to book another full day trip with captain Shaun. He was amazing with the whole family, and took extra care to make sure our trip was just what WE wanted. He never stopped moving, to ensure we always had fresh bait, helped remove fish, and everything else we could need. He is very skilled at getting his team right on the fish… we were all continually reeling in a wide variety of fish. He is also very knowledgeable about all the species we were catching and it was fun to learn about them. I am especially grateful for the extra time he spent with my son to make sure he had a great time. We all left feeling like we now have a new friend, one that we cannot wait to meet again on the boat. Pelican Sport fishing is top notch, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Thank you Captain SHAUN!
