The Private Boater’s Guide to Fishing and Diving in Southern California

Updated for 2023 with 50 Fathom Rockfish Boundary waypoints! This is our flagship product, featuring 18 detailed fishing and diving maps of Southern California’s coastline from Point Conception to Ensenada. This map guide contains a wealth of local knowledge for the So Cal private boater, no matter which harbor you call home.

Follow the Bite, All Over the Bight

It has never been more possible for the So Cal angler to stay on the fish up and down the coast. Hot bite for bluefin out at the 43 Fathom Spot? Or maybe the backside of Catalina’s on fire for seabass. How about the killer rockfishing all the way out at San Nic? No excuse now, you know where to go. And where not to.

Find Your Next Hot Fishing Spot

Our fishing and diving maps are more than just GPS numbers.  We also include fish-holding habitat like kelp beds, rocky reefs and hard bottom areas, eelgrass, docks and artificial reefs, so you can find your next hotspot off the beaten path.

Fish with Confidence

We also show fishing regulation boundaries like the new 50-fathom rockfish depth limit, 40-fathom fishing boundaries within Cowcod Conservation Areas, Marine Protected Area GPS boundaries and rule summaries, as well as local “no fishing” or “no diving” zones closer to the harbor. Fish and dive with confidence with our Southern California Boater’s Guide!
