Hi G@point, it's been about 3 years since I did a fishing excursion in San Diego. Had an enjoyable experience, caught several barracudas (Pacific, quite a bit different from the Atlantic sprcies I used to catch as a kid in Florida.). The captain moved several times ,but always ended up over a school of barracudas, so no one caught anything else. You will need a California salt water license (one day permits are very reasonable). Can't remember the name of the boat I went out on. Have a good, fun, safe trip.
