    In my opinion, it's the best local boat in San Diego. Ernie Prieto goes the distance to catch fish and since he normally carries lighter loads than everyone else, it's a great boat to fish when the others are packed.

    I was fishing with Ernie at the Coronados a few years back and the yellows just weren't biting. He was talking to one of the other 3/4 day boats on the radio and they told him that they were going to head out for Plan B, which was to go and fish sculpin. I asked Ernie if he was going to go with Plan B as well and he said, "There is no Plan B. We're here to fish yellows." We ended up getting a couple fish late in the day and although I didn't catch one of them I was happy that we stuck it out and didn't bail for the sculpin grounds like everyone else...

    Great boat and crew. 1/2 or 3/4 day, it doesn't matter. Just go you won't regret it.

    Great crew and light loads. One of my favorite 2 local boats in SoCal. My last trip out with them we had a great YT bite and Ernie kept us out an extra nearly 2 hours till the bait ran out.

    I like this boat. Like everyone else says, usually it's a lighter load and they really try to put you on the fish. It also sits really low in the water. I like fishing on the San Diego too cause they have the refrigerated salt water hold but the crowds on that boat get kuh-razy. The Chubasco uses a big gray plastic bin filled with ice so that keeps your catch fresh, no fish baking in burlap bags in the sun. They have a deal on Living Social right now, 1 day left, 30 bucks for a half day trip.

    Ernie's a feeshy guy, always enjoyed fishing with him and if yellows are around, he runs' n guns till he gets them on the boat.

    Agree with everyone, quality boat and crew. Check his website.
    The 1/2 day trips usually fish the local kelp and the
    3/4 day trips fish the islands. If he makes squid on the
    island trip, it's usually available for the mid week
    1/2 day anglers.
