Oceanside is a great spot for fishing off the coast! If you’re seeking a little bit of adventure and also want to experience some great fishing spots, this is the place for you.

Sport fishing only qualifies as “deep-sea fishing” in waters over 100 feet deep, and the drop-off to this depth in Oceanside is closer to the shore than at almost any other location on the Southern California coast.
