Interesting, so the only way to get fish to FishPros is to take it there in person?
No - we meet the long range boats when they return. If the daily/1.5 day boats return in the morning as well, we will meet them if we have reservations.

You are always welcome to bring fish to our shop between 8 am and 1pm, though, for drop offs - but best to confirm with the office until the season is in full steam ahead in late June to confirm that we are still there.

The OP was discussing the dockside of the Shogun, which is a service offered with the Shogun, Royal Star and Royal Polaris at the arrangements of those vessels. In addition, we do dockside at the request of charter masters and the previous arrangement of other vessels.

But we are always at Fishermans Landing, Point Loma Sportfishing and H&M to meet the long range boats that return in the mornings. In addition, we are now going to Seaforth to meet the return of the Polaris Supreme over there.

If you do have any questions regarding reservations for certain boats, you can check with our office at 619-255-3128.

    Ended up going with Mario's because am poor :) . Fish left the dock at 7:30, they called me at 8am to come pick it up. Yield was 40% on a 50lb tuna. Will experiment with other companies in the future but as far as I can tell the packing quality and service was top notch!

    Learned something fantastic last night, Five Star has after hours self- service drop off! I did not know this but it's totally awesome :-) Came in around 8PM last night after fishing Liberty all day, no processors at the dock. Really didn't want to f around with fish after the long day, disappointed. Then I overhear one of the crew members explaining to other anglers that you can drop fish at 5S, just need the gate lock combo which Fisherman's office had. You go there, unlock the gate and there is a tote inside filled with ice slurry. You drop in your fish, fill out a tag and done! Next morning they call you to come and get your fish :D Sooo friggin' cool 8-)

    You sure it was your fish you got back that quick?? They have one hell of a fish market with fresh fish.
