Watch Ted's Experience from 9/10/2020
The Best Fishing Experience off San Diego's Coast for Anglers of all Skill Levels
Step aboard our Boston Whaler on San Diego's gorgeous Mission Bay and be out to sea within 10 minutes. Whether the water is calm or choppy, the ride will be smooth thanks to the unique characteristics of our boat; the Boston Whaler combines the agility of an angler boat with the comfort of a cabin cruiser.

You and up to three other guests will be guided by Captain Daniel Lecuna, a lifelong fisherman with a boatload of angling skills. You'll also have an experienced deckhand, so you can relax and thoroughly enjoy this top notch fishing experience. Daniel tailors the entire trip to your preferences, whether you want to go out all day, fish for certain species or cast your line in specific spots.
Meet Captain Daniel

Fishing ace, ocean lover & boat master
Daniel has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod. Growing up on a Caribbean island, his playground was the ocean and his favorite pastime was fishing. At five years old, he developed a passion for fishing while handlining bottom fish from a small 12 foot panga. When he was ten, the family got a bigger boat and soon Daniel was fishing rich Caribbean waters for pelagic fish like tuna, sailfish, billfish, swordfish, wahoo and bonita. Like any true fishing lover, Daniel was on the water angeling whenever he could - weekends, vacation and spare time were all spent fishing.

Daniel moved to San Diego over 20 years ago and has been fishing off the coast ever since. He knows all of the fishing spots, from Mexico up to the San Clemente islands. He also has developed a wide network of fellow avid anglers that he uses to get the latest information on where the fish are biting. He puts his decades of fishing experience towards every trip, with the goal that all of his guests have fishing trip memories that last a lifetime.
What to Expect with Reel Life Fishing Charters

(A whole lotta fun )
Fish rich waters as far as 100 miles off shore where monsters bite, in U.S. or Mexican waters. We specialize in all day offshore trips for big game pelagic species, like bluefin, yellowfin tuna, dorado, yellowtail, bonito, halibut and wahoo.

We also take plenty of guests inshore fishing among the stunning shallow waters of San Diego's shoreline, from Point Loma and up to La Jolla. Cruise along the coast and bottomline off the boat for sheepshead, rockfish, lingcod and more.

We provide all of the top-of-the-line equipment - reels, bait, kites, lines, and more. We ask that you bring snacks and drinks and your U.S. or Mexico fishing licenses.

In short, our coast offers diverse fishing experiences and we have the boat, equipment and expertise to make the most of San Diego's outstanding fishing opportunities.
