The Liberty departs daily at 5:30 am and returns at 5:30 pm to take advantage of fishing opportunities year around. Common winter, spring, and fall destinations include the Coronado Islands and Mexican coastal areas within 50 miles of San Diego. Targeted species include Yellowtail, White Sea Bass, Barracuda, Calico Bass, Rockfish, Halibut, and any other fish that might occasionally be present. During the summer and late fall, the Liberty takes advantage of off shore opportunities when available. Targeted species include Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna, Albacore, Dorado, Yellowtail, and any other fish that might occasionally be present. On these trips, an angler has a chance to land a fish of a lifetime.
The California Yellowtail is the most sought after species aboard the Liberty’s 3/4 Day trips. Yellowtail commonly weigh between 10 and 25 pounds and are by far one of the most exciting gamefish to be caught anywhere. They will readily take a live bait, vertical yoyo jig, or surface iron. Once hooked, a yellowtail will do anything to gain its freedom. Pound for pound they fight as hard as any fish in the sea and they will try to bury into any nearby structure. Landing a Yellowtail is truly a great experience.
