Gil treated his son and a couple friends to a full day at the Coronado Islands. Loaded the bag with some bottom fish and found some barracuda to pull on. The yellowtail did not make an appearance today. Great group and fun times! Thanks so much Gil for choosing Pelican! Look forward to having you guys aboard again!

We had a great day out on the water with my son and his two friends. Spent first few hours targeting some game fish and had a great time bringing in the baracuda. Shaun knows the area extremely well and put us on fish at almost every location around the islands. He definitely puts customer service first and did everything we asked and wanted to do. I wouldn’t hesitate to go fishing again with Shuan! - Gil
Ran doubles on this day and for the PM had a nice family from Illinois. They got this big (legal) halibut but we safely released it. I always respect customer's wishes for catch and release trips. This family offered to let me keep it, but I decided to return it for another day! Maybe another Pelican Sportfishing angler will hook up on it soon! Thank you Vinny for choosing Pelican Sportfishing for your San Diego fishing adventure. Until next time!
Had a blast with this group on an AM Half Day Trip along La Jolla. Nice size red today as well as lots of other mix species. Tunes jamming, rods bent and lots of laughter! I love when people have such positive, excited attitudes from the moment they get on board. Thank you Johnathon for choosing Pelican for you, your wife and friends. I had a great time and am looking forward to next time!

"Went out for a coastal fishing trip this past weekend with my wife, my buddy and his girlfriend and we had a blast! My buddy and I are avid fishermen but have never fished out of San Diego before and Shaun shared a wealth of information with us AND put us on the fish! We went on the 6 hour coastal trip and Shaun delivered an amazing experience and we loaded up the cooler with a constant bite of rockfish and almost a dozen other species. Shaun was at the dock early and brought us back late. He baited hooks for my wife & buddy's girlfriend and took their fish off. The boat is in tip top shape, and all 37 fish we kept were fileted and on ice when we got back to the dock as well. Shaun is also super friendly and makes sure that YOU are the one who is catching the fish. All four of us had a great time and we're looking forward to heading out with Shaun down to the Coronado Islands to chase Yellowtail next time. I've been on many fishing charters, literally around the world, and Captain Shaun and Pelican Sportfishing are tops. Thanks Shaun!" - Johnathon Fata
Big ol' halibut for this father and sons group. They loaded up on some rockfish as well...filling the freezer Thank you Alex!
Had a blast with this family during a half day fishing trip along La Jolla. Always enjoy seeing kids learn and experience fishing on their own. It's a hobby that can last a lifetime. They loaded up on a mix of species, including a nice halibut and even caught (and safely released) a small shark. Thank you Garrett for choosing Pelican Sportfishing!

Fantastic experience. We had three generations out with Capt. Shaun, varying from expert to novice angler, and all had a great time. He put us on fish, helped out where necessary, and was flexible to our priorities for the day. We'll definitely be back! - Garrett C
Quick morning trip to the Coronado Islands produced a solid yellowtail within 15 minutes for Elliot. It happened to be his first yellowtail ever and he was celebrating his birthday. A barracuda was hooked but lost to the seal lions. Happy Birhday Elliot! Thank you Reem for choosing Pelican Sportfishing. Looking forward to having you two out again!

Went on a full day trip to the coronado islands with Shaun, unfortunately my husband felt very sick shortly after arriving at the islands. So we had to leave early, Shaun was very understanding and did his best to take care of us.
Within the first 5 minutes we had our lines in the water and was on fish. My husband was able to land at least 1 yellowtail tube before sea sickness got the better of him! Unfortunately I lost a barracuda to the sea lions.
Shaun was very informative and explained every step along the way and gave very clear instructions on what to do and how to handle the tackle. Even with my husband feeling sick from sea sickness he is already asking if we can go again with Shaun as we found he was a excellent captain. - Reem
Kevin and Jeff from Vegas hopped on for some bottom fishing for a half day trip. It was a steady bite with a variety of species caught. More importantly, Kevin and Jeff were able to honor their late father, whom they had just had a celebration of life for the day prior. Bittersweet day but we had a great time and I look forward to having these guys out again. Thank you Kevin and Jeff for choosing Pelican Sportfishing for such an important and special event.
Bob had originally booked a 3/4 Day Offshore Trip, however, since the tuna weren't in range we game planned ahead of time and turned the trip into a 3/4 Day at Coronado Islands. I'd say they made the right decision. Camden felt a little heartbreak after losing his first yellowtail ever to a sea lion but he made up for it, ripping 7 yellows past them throughout the day. It had been 20 years since Bob caught a yellowtail. As always, a super enjoyable day watching a father and son slay fish and make memories! Thanks Bob for choosing Pelican Sportfishing. See you guys next year!

I spoke with Captain Shaun prior to our booking, explained past trips and fish we wanted to catch on this one. The Captain suggested a 3/4 day trip heading south of the border to the Coronado's Islands. Caden, my son, is quite the fisherman catching 8 yellowtail on this trip while I reeled in 2 others. The boat was super clean and our bounty stayed on ice until we were close to being back at dock. The Captain filleted our fish and bagged them in ziploc bags for us. This trip is truly memorial for the two of us. Thanks Captain Shaun! ~ Bob from Phoenix
2nd Round at the Coronado Islands produced another solid mix of yellowtail, rockfish, a sheephead and a barracuda. The day started out cooler and windy but got nice as the day went on. The boat traffic was super heavy but we managed to keep our distance. These guys managed a good haul and had an amazing fishing trip. Thank you Chris for putting together a fun fishing trip with your fam! Looking forward to next time.
