View Full Version : Patriot sport fishing at Avila Beach?

I won a all expenses paid trip for 4 from Patriot Sport Fishing out of Avila Beach. Never fished out of there, only Emeryville or Bodega. Can anyone give a little insight on what time to go and which boat? Thanks.

Great little operation there in Avila. All of the boats fish the same zones for rockfish. I believe the Phenix runs shorter trips, just out front, near the Diablo power plant. The Patriot runs trips a little further south, past Pismo, down near the Vandenburg air base.

The bottom fishing can be good, but the size is definitely smaller than Bodega or Farralons.

Bring the normal jigs and swimbaits for lings and shrimp flies for the rockies.

We've always had a fun and the crews are friendly and willing to help.

When you're off the boat, stop in for a bowl of chowder at the end of the pier. I think the resturant is the Custom House seafood.
