The half day trips are equally great for the beginner angler as well as for those more experienced. Don't waste your weekend. Get out on the water and make the most of southern California's rich inshore waters. Out of Mission Bay and up along to La Jolla, you'll hit the shallow saltwater fishing grounds as you seek to fill the boat with some native fish. Go after Calicos, Rockfish, Halibut, Yellowtail, White Seabass, and more,...

I have been fishing nearly all my life from New Jersey to West Palm Beach in the late 70's and 80's. In 1990 I enlisted in the Marines and eventually ended up in California in 1994 and I have been fishing the California and Mexican Waters since that time. I have owned and operated the Ironclad since 2017.

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 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!
