Lobster fishing trips are seasonal and here in California the lobster season usually runs from early October to mid March. These trips usually depart around 5PM and return around 10PM. Most of the time we are fishing inside of the Long Beach harbor so you don’t have to worry about rough water. We will provide all hoop nets and gear needed to catch lobsters, you only need to bring your California fishing license and lobster card. Lobster charters are a lot of fun and a great way to learn about lobster fishing here in Southern California.
