trip description for Jetties, Reefs, and Kelp—Oh My! in Newport Beach

For this fun trip, you'll fish the local coast of Orange County with its reefs, man-made structures, kelp beds, and points. You can go wherever the fish are biting, but some favorite spots are the Santa Ana River Jetty and Newport Artificial Reef—both are famous for very large White Seabass, Yellowtail, and Halibut. Calico Bass can also be found at all these spots and are really fun to reel in. This is a great trip to maximize your fishing time, because you're staying fairly close to shore. This trip adds a few more options compared to the half-day trip. This puts some spots that are a little further away into striking distance. This trip can venture out to the famous 150-spot where Yellowtail fishing thrives, or run down south to the Barn Kelp where Seabass love to hang. A great trip for anglers who want to be back to land earlier in the afternoon if you have later obligations. Read More
