TESTIMONIALS

{We had a great time on our fishing trip! The 6 hour trip is a good amount of time on the water without feeling like it’s too much. Although the fish weren’t really biting (and we had to throw a lot of little ones back), it was so much fun. Both Captain Mike and Sam were super friendly and helpful with the equipment, bait, and casting the lines out. My only critique would be to communicate location a little more with directions. We tried getting there earlier than our 6:30am departure, and we showed up/parked at the address given, but then had no idea where to go from there. It was a big area with 3 dock gates, and we had no clue what dock we were going to be on or that we should just wait at the gate until time. More people finally showed up and we established we were all waiting for the same charter, so it was fine. But I wish we had more direction so we weren’t panicking we were in the wrong spot and would miss the fishing trip. Overall though, we would definitely book again!

San Diego, CA|A half-day in the bay was fine, we were hitting tons of fish, but look what happened when we decided to make it a full day and head for deeper waters. Captain Dyer and Deckhand Sam were a great crew. They had their favorite spots, but also had eagle eyes for patties and birds. A 20lb yellowfin and 65lb bluefin left us with more fish than we could have dreamed of. While the boat’s speed left a little to be desired, we enjoyed the leisurely ride in and out and even saw a couple large pods of dolphins.

Palm Desert, California|Captain Ross and deck hand Sam made this trip so memorable. Not to mention the luck of a big shark. Wr got a lot of good meat. If you go, which I highly recommend, request Ross and Sam. Simply awesome!
Michael A.
Puyallup, WA|We had so much fun fishing with Captain Ross and Sam. Their knowledge and enthusiasm never ended. Along with their experience with all the spots we hit, we were busy pulling them in and loving it all day! Thanks again!
Clark B.
Austin, TX|We went on a half day fishing trip. The crew was great!! Super helpful, enthusiastic and very nice. Overall great experience. We went in early March, which isn’t the ideal time for fishing, but we caught a few fish. Most of them we threw back because they weren’t big enough. But we kept a few little ones. Great trip overall!
Morgan C.
Orem, UT|Had a wonderful time! Capt. Mike and crew were top notch! We stopped in 4 areas and each time we caught fish. They were super knowledgeable and maximized our fishing time. Super friendly and did everything for us. Next time we are in the area we will definitely charter with them again! Highly recommend them!

{The Long Run is a class act operation that gets you on the fish! I normally fish on sport boats but decided to give this a shot. I hopped on board the Witchy Woman center console and was ready to go. The yellowfin pushed down south but captain Nathan decided to make the 70 mile run! Man this boat is fast, we got down to the grounds in no time. All I can say is that if you want to get on a boat with the drive to find the fish this is the boat for you!|”Had a great time fishing for halibut on a last minute plan to go fishing.

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.

History

Established in 1994.
The Long Run has been owned and operated out of Marina Cortez since owner Nathan Bealls purchase of the vessel in 1998.
Having owned another 37′ Viking 4 years prior gave him the inclination to begin sharing his love for the ocean and fishing. This was the only way for one to afford to get out offshore far enough to get the big Pelagics like Tuna Dorado and Yellowtail. We had to “share expenses”.

The Viking was a gas and wood boat and was a great intro into the world of chartering for The Long Run. The Long Run is a trawler and has over 120 feet of rail space and a great bow for fishing making even flyfishing possible.

The Long Runs 6 person capacity means fewer tangles and more fish per angler on the troll. The boat is extremely comfortable and clean and does not smoke a lot as many deisel vessels do. It is a semi-displacement hull making it extremely fuel efficient. We now have added 24′ 4-pack, 34′ and 52′ 6-pack vessels to our fleet.
