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...

About Your Trip

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.

About Your Guide

Captain Shannon

Independent Guide
Captain Shannon is a California native who has lived in the Orange County beach communities for decades.
He started back in 2015 and has persevered as one of the few full-time 4-pack charter skiffs out of Newport. He's proud to be running his 8th season and loves taking out all types of anglers.
His favorite type of fishing is for Yellowtail and Tuna when they are "foaming" on the surface. Everyday on the water is different, and he enjoys the
challenges of fishing in all conditions.

Captain Shannon hopes to have you on board, whether you're a seasoned angler or brand new to ocean fishing. He has access to a great fishery off the Southern California Bight, and can't wait to go fishing everyday. He takes great pride in his vessel, and is always upgrading her to make her one of the best fishing platforms out there.

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
