Trip Page: La Jolla California Kayak Fishing

Guided kayak fishing out of La Jolla California.

La Jolla is not only San Diego’s jewel, but it is home to California’s best kayak fishery making it one of our favorite places to fish. La Jolla is home to the best fishery for targeting yellowtail from a kayak. During warm summers it isn’t uncommon to see pelagics cruising thru the fishing grounds just looking to get nabbed.

If you have heard of kayak fishing at the legendary La Jolla fishery, then you probably have heard about Kevin Nakada, lead guide at Sea Samurai. This guy is just ridiculous when it comes to finding fish for his customers. His passion for fishing is what gets his clients so pumped up.

Typical Itinerary

You will meet Kevin at the La Jolla Shores beach launch area at the designated time. He will walk you through the fishing schedule for the day and will help you punch through the surf so that you can start your day off right.

If live bait is needed, Kevin will hunt for bait using his fish finder and a sabiki rig. He puts in all the hard work so that you don’t have to. After enough bait is harvested you will head to the primary fishing grounds where you will most likely be targeting chunky yellowtail.

By the end of the day you will be heading back tired, beat up and hopefully full of epic fish tales.

Trip Cost

Half day trip starts at $220 per person.
Full day trip starts at $300 per person.
