All About Southern California Ocean Fishing

Welcome to the wonderful world of Ocean Fishing the beautiful Southern California coast. Here I’ve compiled all sorts of great information for the new or experienced fisherman about where, when and how to fish the many different Southern California saltwater fish. Enjoy!

Hi, I’m Jeff Spira

I’ve been fishing here in Southern California since the late 1960s, including a stint as a commercial fisherman back in my college days. Ocean fishing is one of the things I’m passionate about. To me there are few better ways to spend a warm sunny day here in Southern California. One of the things I’ve always loved is experimenting with different spots, baits, techniques, and just about anything else I could experiment with. This has taught me that there are no right or wrong ways to fish, and more than one way can work. Fish are funny critters. Some days, they’re finiky and some days they’ll snap at almost anything. It’s your job as a fisherman to figure out what works the day you’re fishing, not what worked yesterday or tomorrow. I’ve tried to cram this web site with everything I’ve learned over the years and hope you find this information useful. You may recognize this spot I’m fishing in this picture as the Pallisades on the back side of Catalina.
