Charters out of SD

So I'm coming to SD early June and I'm looking to find a shoredive spot or two, but also am going to book a charter. Has anyone ever been with a spear charter out of SD? Specifically the 5 hour inshore trip around the kelp beds would be preferable as I'm not sure if I'll have time for a full day of tuna. I'll be with a buddy too so will most likely have to get on an open boat (Would be a thursday or Friday). Anyone go on some of these charter boats frequently? (Guardian, Lineage, Tantrum, etc.)

Also, any decent spots to hop in the water off the beach? I may try around La Jolla. Only will be there for a couple days so any info would be appreciated. Experienced FII Level 1 spearo from NJ.

If anyone would like to meet up too, always down for that.

Thanks

Re: Charters out of SD

The charters listed are all great options. If the tuna are in town, very likely they will be booked in advance.

Re: Charters out of SD

Diving La Jolla can be productive but it's also busy if you go on a weekend. You can find YT, calico and sheepshead if you like that sort of thing. Make sure you have your fishing license. I've been stopped just after coming up from a dive.

Re: Charters out of SD

Yeah I'll 100% have a license. Looks like I can't really book a spot on a charter unless i book the whole boat. Sounds like for the most part I have to keep checking in closer to the date to try to get a spot. Hopefully its not too much of a pain in the ass when the time comes. Definitely looking for some shore dive spots as a backup though if anyone is down to meet up.

Brink Expeditions is a great outfit, Ryan & Co. run an impressive charter service on a nice boat.

Re: Charters out of SD

I went with Capt. Doug last year on Zenmar Charters https://fishingbooker.com/charters/view/12339 and they put me on some big tuna last year! First class operation! Call around and see what works best for you and your budget. 619 813-9208 is there number. Make us jealous with pics when you get back!

Re: Charters out of SD

Thanks for the recommendation. I just checked out the site. Looks like they are a little more open to the open boat charters. I'll give them a call this weekend for more info.
