The Long Run Sportfishing

With over 26 years of expertise with San Diego saltwater fishing, Nathan and his knowledgeable and friendly crew can provide you with an excellent knowledge base on the seasonal bites and the best "hotspots" off of San Diego and Mexico waters.  

The Long Run Sportfishing Charter specializes in trips as short as 1/2 day trips (6 hours) to 2.5 days. Each trip will be tailored to the season's bite and what you want to catch. The 24 hour plus trips target Albacore, Yellowtail, Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Dorado, Sharks, and Marlin during the warmer months. The shorter half day 6h hour and 3/4 day 15 hour trips often target San Diego's Yellowtail, Bonito, Barracuda, or bottom fish such as Ling Cod, Sculpin, Sand Bass, and Halibut. Just outside San Diego Harbor we can find Rock fish, Kelp fish, and much more. 

Though The Long Run is a serious fishing vessel, it is also beginner friendly. We are very able and willing to allot extra effort in helping novice anglers with getting the big ones aboard. Our goal is to educate, with patience, those who are gracious enough to charter our boat. Fishing is an amazing outlet for kids to focus their energy in a constructive manner.  

The Long Run is a 40’-0” “Hershine” Trawler with a full walk around, two staterooms, two heads, large salon and full galley, two bait tanks, Furuno fish finder, Sitex radar and a heavy sound system. We carry a full range of high end rods and reels for your use, free of charge. It is eco-friendly, being very fuel efficient, which limits sickness from diesel fumes, reduces noise and passes the savings on to our clients.  

"The Long Run" is also available for private parties, bay cruises, whale watching, and more. It is your trip and would goal is to create a custom trip for every party. We are very hands on with a maximum of three anglers per crew member to assist anglers from every experience level. Catering is available upon request.
