Welcome to San Diego’s Premiere
4 pack and 6 Pack Fishing Charter
With over 26 years of experience running 4-pack and 6-pack charters out of San Diego, Nathan and his knowledgeable & friendly crew will use their expertise to put your on seasonal bites and the best “hot spots” via the most current fishing reports, off of San Diego and Mexican waters. We can take up to 13 anglers plus 2 crew members on shorter and non-fishing trips. The 42’ “The Long Run” and 31’ Witchy Woman (our 45 knot vessel) & crew is ready to provide you and your party with an experience you won’t soon forget!
Fish and Trips
The Long Run Sportfishing Charters specialize in custom, private and semi-private fishing trips as short as 1/2 day (6 hours to 3 days 72 hrs) Each trip will be tailored to the season’s bite and what you want to catch. Overnight trips target Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Dorado, Yellowtail, Shark and Marlin during the warmer months. Shorter, half day 6 hour and 3/4 day 10 hour trips often target San Diego’s Yellowtail, Bonito, Barracuda, Bass or bottom fish such as Sheepshead, Ling Cod, Sculpin, Sand Bass, and Halibut. Whether you are a larger group looking for a corporate bonding experience, have family and desire a more local and relaxed approach or are looking for the fastest hardcore charter boat in San Diego you have come to the right place.
If shark fishing is something you’re interested in, San Diego waters have a great deal to offer anglers in search of that special catch. March – November is the season to catch Mako and Thresher sharks to 1000 pounds!!! There are also good scores on Leopard Sharks, Shovel-Nose Sharks, Angel Sharks, Seven Gill Sharks and the common Smooth Hounds locally. We have two World Record Leopard sharks both caught off The Long Run in San Diego Bay.
Here at The Long Run, we are large proponents of responsible shark fishing & conserving a healthy shark population encouraging catch and release when appropriate. Sharks can produce only a few offspring per year making overfishing a concern, particularly with Longliners off the coast of Southern California. In addition we try to take only males as an added effort to preserve these fascinating creatures and ensure that there is a healthy shark population in San Diego for years to come. Our vision is to preserve the future of sport fishing for future generations by respecting this spectacular resource.
More than Fishing Trips
“The Long Run” is also available for private parties, Surf Trips, Dive Trips, Bay Cruises, Whale Watching and more. It is your trip and our goal is to create a custom experience for every party. We are typically very hands or or we can offer our vessel for those more experienced to run their own show. We realize that there are wide ranges of experience requests and are happy to cater to anglers of any level of experience.
