Actually, I'm looking for ideas to fish on the Saturday after turkey day!
My old man will be in town and I wanna get him out fishing. Any ideas are appreciated, I'm not going to do the party boat thing. I checked with seasonssportfishing and they're not fishing that weekend.
I'm running out of time, any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

So, I missed stating some important facts.
1. I'm looking to charter a boat for a 3/4 day type trip....5-5 or at least 8 hours.
2. We do not have passports.
3. I'm looking to fish something other than the bay. Yellowtail being the ideal target. I know conditions and no passport probably means rockfish.

I'd hit up Pacific Mistress in Dana, definitely won't need a passport and he's real good about getting late and offseason yellows.

    I usually pick whats biting that week (or day). The weather has been changing so a week ago yellow fin tuna was an option close. Who knows by Nov 25 whats biting.
    Historically, the options can be there for yellow tail and / or blue fin also other species.

    I would pick a boat, and day of fish whats biting. Your fishing with your dad, enjoy the day on the water with him. Catching is secondary (not really but). While your dad is in great shape your making memories. Most of my time with my dad involved being on or near the water. He's been gone over 10 years now but the memories for me are as if it was yesterday.

    Hope you catch fish! Enjoy the day!

    Thanks for the reply Doug. That's sound advice. He's the reason I fish, and yet we've never shared a rail in the ocean. So That day, no matter, will be phenomenal, and if we actually catch fish that'll be the icing on the cake.
