The Channel Islands are comprised of a group of Islands in the Northern portion of the Southern California Bight. When we discuss the group of islands it can be categorized predominantly in to two sections of North and South. When speaking of the Southern Islands reference is to San Clemente Island and Catalina Island. These Islands have the most fishing recognition as they are more accessible for a larger portion of the coast due to proximity to myriad of harbors.
The Northern group of islands referenced as San Miguel Island, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa Island, Santa Barbara, Anacapa and San Nicholas are accessible predominantly from the northern harbors like Ventura and Santa Barbara, which in general has them seeing less traffic. In their own right each Island has something special and unique about them but what they all share as an amazing fishery.
These Northern set of islands offer a more pristine and preserved fishery, a step back in time if you will. Come along with us as we jump on board with the team members from BD Outdoors to explore the area and experience the fruits of this magical place.
