Hey guys! After a long 13 month tour at Diego Garcia, Im going to be assigned to continuation school at the Navy base in San Diego during the month of July and into August. Ive only fished Imperial Beach Pier once and that's it as far as my entire San Diego fishing experience. What should be available for me fresh water, saltwater, from shore or from boats this time of year? Special points to anyone who can point out spots on base that I get access for being in the military Smile Thank you for your inputs as I go through the San Diego pier articles on this site.

The Navy station is Coronado has its own pier (a pier I've always wished I could fish) and one of my favorite piers is the Ferry Landing Pier in Coronado which though fairly small yields up quite a few nice fish.

The BFT & YT bite has been phenomenal down here for March & April. The WSB bite is on too, with many limits. If you wanna hop on an overnight or 1.5 day boat with me, let me know. Even the 3/4 day boats out of SD have been getting them. Prices ranges are about $160-$300 per ticket, depending on trip type, boat, and harbor.

Memories my first party boat trip out of San Diego was on the "Marine" boat "Alibi Run" in July 1963. The boat was reserved for Marines and their families from MCRD and was, I believe, a former PT boat.

I was just me, the crew, and about a dozen Marines who didn't bring much tackle but did bring many cases of beer. They began drinking heavy before we even left the bait receiver and by the end of the day several were seriously drunk (my biggest memory was the smell in the bunk area of the boat).

We left at midnight, started fishing about 8:30, and arrived back at 5:30 in the evening. Most of the we were fishing about 75 miles out from San Diego.

We were seeking out albacore but couldn't find them and we wound up fishing for bonito. I landed seven good-sized bonito (the largest being 8 1/2 pounds). My mom's roses were happy.
