    What You’ll Need & Other Tips:

    • State of California Fishing License for anyone 16 years or older. Click HERE for the current California Sport Fishing License Fees. Click HERE to purchase your license online.
    • In the event that we enter and fish Mexican territorial waters, you will need to purchase a Mexican Fishing License and have a current Passport if fishing within 12 miles from the Mexico coast. We have one day Mexico Fishing Licenses available for $12 each. 
    • You may also need to purchase a Mexican Visa (FMM), which will cost about $20.00 per day. We will purchase the FMM for you at an additional cost. Please ask Captain Mark for more information.
    • A valid picture I.D. such as your Driver’s License, Passport, Military I.D. Card, or School I.D is required while in US waters by the U.S. Coast Guard on all trips. Please ensure that the I.D. is NOT expired.
    • Sun Protection: Sunscreen, hats, polarized sunglasses, long-sleeved shirts. It can get chilly offshore so bring a sweater, coat, windbreaker, etc. Dress in layers so that you can shed layers as the conditions allow.
    • Rain Protection: Rain jackets, foul weather gear – “just in case”.
    • Food, Snacks and Drinks (be sure to bring more drinks that you think you’ll need)
    • A large cooler with ice to bring home filets of your catch (Please leave in your car.)
    • Camera and video camera that can stand up to saltwater.

    If you prefer to fish with your own tackle, we encourage you to bring your favorite rods aboard. Please be sure to be on-time because the best action is typically first thing in the morning.
