Deep-sea Fishing in Southern California Is Regulated
The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) provides up-to-date information on open, closed, and partially closed fisheries. Check the listing frequently, as ocean conditions or dips in the fish populations may lead to early fishery closures. Moreover, fishing for some species from shore is governed by rules that greatly differentiate from regulations applying to deep-sea charters. Case in point are rockfish, which may be caught by divers and shore anglers year-round, but may only be caught by boat anglers between March 1 and December 31. The changing rules, bag limits, tackle restrictions, and depth constraints are the reasons why tourists going on deep-sea fishing trips prefer to use the services of deep-sea charters.
