Good morning. I'm looking to book my firs tuna trip this year. I've narrowed it down to 8-10 days from San Diego. I've been looking at the American Angler. Any other recommendations? Additionally, I'm looking at going the last week of September into October. Historically, what should I be expecting as far as fishing trends and species? Thanks alot!

At this point, if you're trying to get out this year, there are maybe a small handful of 8-10 trips with ANY openings at all left on all of the LR boats collectively. I'd go to each boats schedule to see what there might be and use that as your determining factor... then the other questions can be asked. Good luck!

Openings are few and far between. Waiting lists are an option.

I see an opening on Shogun, 10 day, 10/12-22, book it!

Agree finding a spot might be difficult. If you could expand your dates into December, it would give you more options. The long range boats most likely have waiting lists. I suggest you telephone the office and see how long the waiting list is. If it’s one or two people, you have a better shot verse 10 people. There will be those that have deposits, that will have to cancel for whatever reason. So it would depend on how much lead time you need.

It you have to travel a good distance to get to San Diego that could mess thing up. Airfare and hotel rooms.

Also I’m not sure who has Guadalupe permit this year. Great fishery. And fun to watch the Great Whites eat your hook fish.

Plan to have fun. And keep asking questions.

You will have a blast on the Excel 10 day, great crew, great crowd, and a really spacious boat. I wish I can make it on the Excel 10 day this year, maybe next year.
