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!
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.
Went out for a 6-7 hour trip a few days before Thanksgiving. We departed promptly at 6AM and returned at 1:30PM. We caught an 8kg yellowtail and a 6kg skip jack. The day ended perfectly after the midday sun. The trip was not crowded, just 4 fishers and 1 spectator. Nice crew! Professional. We hope to return in the Spring for more fish and more San Diego.
Don’t fish very often but when we do get to San Diego we always book a trip with the Long Run It’s a great boat, great crew and we always have a wonderful time. The crew are very experienced and helps us whenever we need it. Will be back again in the near future. Can’t wait.
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!
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!
Chris was AWSOME! Worked hard to put us on the fish. Gave great instruction and worked with everyone about the gear and presentation with the bait. Fog was heavy and unexpected for the day. It kept us from going out of the bay. That bad luck didn’t stop us from catching fish tho. After the fog cleared we got 2 hours of off shore fishing, also the Dolphins put smiles on everyone on board. Highlight? Lingcod! It was such a crowd pleaser on the grill the next day!!! The Long Run You Ask?
Automatic!!!! “Fish On!”
Thanks Long Run!!!!!
Had a great time with Skipper Mike and Sam, put us on lots of fish and couldn’t ask for more. They were awesome, highly recommend this group.
We had an amazing time. 10 out of 10!! Would definitely recommend to anyone! Will be back soon. And booking with them again!!!
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!
Awesome Captain and we had a great time fishing.
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!
This guy knows bigfish
It was a great trip! Met other people and got along with them. Captain Erick was great he talked to us and communicate. We got some fish. Overall will come fishing again.
Chris & Travis were amazing. Slow day, but I expected it with the bad weather. We got some in the end, though! The crew did all they could to make it excellent! I highly recommend!
We had a great time. Mike was really good with my kids. We all caught fish consistently all afternoon. Would go again and would recommend these guys.
Original communications between Captain and myself was not ideal—fueling up the boat made him late for our pick up, but we were not made aware so we were worried we weren’t in the right place. Once we got out on the water though, we had a great day—fish weren’t biting, but the sun sure was shining! 🙂 Chris & Travis were super helpful & knowledgeable.
Great trip. My 12 year old son and I caught six fish. His 15 pound halibut was, by far, the highlight.
Great Crew who made my 8 year old’s birthday trip amazing. I would easily book this again and again. I highly recommend!
Highly experienced crew that can put you on the fish in any conditions. Learned a lot from Captain Mike and his many years of experience. Looking forward to seeing them again very soon.
The captain and crew were fantastic. Cut over 30 fish on that boat. Definitely will be back again.
We did not catch rock fish were not bitting. Deck hand was very attentive. He even gave us some of his snacks and drinks. However I believe they could have brought better bait. They did not have any live bait on board which I believe was the cause of us not catching any but a few small fish. Squid was good, but captain brought raw shrimp you buy at the supermarket. I dont know if it’s worked in the past, but having ghost shrimp would have been better. Overall even with us not catching any we had a good time. Some days no matter what you try. It’s not going to bite as much!
We had a great experience fishing with this crew. However, thought we’d be deep sea fishing and catching some “big” fish to take home…. we did 4 hours which we should have booked 8 hour trip, because we never left marina and was hoping for a real fishing experience. Crew was great though. Next time we will book better and maybe ask if we are for sure going out deep sea fishing. Would have liked a better thrill experience
Had a great time, Andrew and Sam are super knowledgeable and friendly guys. They put us on some bay bass and halibut, and then we decided to head offshore and caught a couple nice tuna.
The trip was good for the most part it was raining and when the boat showed up the live bait wasnt on board and we paid for a half day trip the deck hand smoked and my husband and i dont smoke, then he put a cigarette out where the live bait was. Our trip was supposed to be from 8am to 12pm but we didnt get to the spot untill 9:30am because we had to pick up the bait. so the trip didnt seem long at all. We stayed in the harbor and was hoping to go out into the ocean but that didnt happen.
Great experience with Captain Mike on an older boat. Super value.
Didn’t even touch a rod or reel the whole day. Trawling for Tuna etc with lures and not a bite had all day. Pleasant crew but would have hoped to have had a back up if the larger fish were not biting even reef fishing would have at least have gave us some enjoyment.
