While most of the sport-fishing companies dock in the Harbor, there is a fishing pier in the Harbor where you can cast off. Bonitos are the most common caught fish in the Harbor.
Fishing from the pier is an excellent option! With the pier being around 1,942 feet long, there are several places along the pier that provide different types of fish.
- Inshore – Commonly caught fish include croakers, stingray, and guitarfish.
- Midway out – queensfish, butterfish, halibut, and sand sharks.
- End of the pier – kelp bass, sand bass, and salema.
There are many sport-fishing companies in Oceanside that offer fun, day trips and sea life adventures on the water. These companies include: Pacific Coast Sail Charters Sunset Sails Helgren’s Sportfishing Pacific Venture Charter Service Sea Star Sportfishing Manfred Marine Unlimited
