Never been deep sea fishing before. Did a lot of research on San Diego fishing charters. Coletta Sportfishing came out on top. I like communication and Captain Chris responded almost immediately to every text and email right up until we stepped on the boat. Capt Hale and Matt were awesome. They were constantly moving to address our every need. They didn't have to but they explained everything they did and made us feel comfortable. All of us caught fish. Coletta Sportfishing will see us again real soon. Thanks again and God Bless, Darren

We chartered a 1/2 day trip Saturday the 30th, and it was amazing. Captain Chris made easy arrangements and John and Hale ran the boat. We worked pretty hard for rockfish, but my son made everyone's day by hauling in a 30 pound yellowtail! The kids had a blast on the way in by throwing the remaining live bait to the swarms of pelicans and gulls! Couldn't have been better.

The pleasure was all ours! The fishing was on the slow side and I am glad you folks caught some quality rockfish. Your son really did catch a toad of a yellowtail. He did a great job on landing that fish. Thanks again for everything and choosing Coletta Sport Fishing fishing for your fishing adventure!

We had an excellent day fishing with Captain Chris and his crew. From the start the experience was very professionally handled. Captain Chris is very quick to answer emails and texts and i can assure this is not the norm. His crew was positive and enthusiastic. The gear was in good condition and there was no shortage of bait. Our catch was well cared for and the mate did an excellent job of filleting the fish, careful to not waste any of the precious resource. This is also not the norm. We will be fishing with these fine folks again, not if but when.
Tight lines

Went out yesterday on a 1/2 day local charter. I’ve been on three other deep sea fishing charters in the recent years (Kenya, Costa Rica, Mexico) and I limited out every time, and so I was hoping to further my fishing experience. We spent most of the time driving around chasing the fish on the top and fighting off the birds, so I actually didn’t get to do any fishing. We only got two bites, and my boyfriend caught one small bonito.

I understand this happens sometimes, but I still am super disappointed!!! It looks like the afternoon charter learned from our morning boat tour, so at least that is one good thing from yesterday.

And I got to see a pretty sunrise :)

Claire,

Thank you for your comments.

We too are equally disappointed that the bite was on the slow side for your half-day charter. However we do appreciate your understanding of the workings of Mother Nature and that you were still able to enjoy a beautiful sunset.

All the best,
Captain Chris Coletta

I can not express enough how great of a time i had with coletta fishing. The pricing to the open communication (very important), the captain, deck hand and the amazing amount of fish we caught in december. Give coletta fishing a chance if your on the fence. Ive called several in san diego and after speaking to them it was a no brainer. Thanks coletta fishing!!
