Winter Fishing in San Diego

While America’s favorite pastime might be baseball, San Diego’s favorite activity is fishing.
San Diego is home to some of the best sport fishing in the country.
Guests of Best Western Plus Island Palms Hotel & Marina can enjoy a variety of year-round fishing
options including saltwater, freshwater, and pier fishing, all within a close distance of our hotel.


Professional, amateur, and would-be fisherman visiting San Diego can cast off from one of the many
charter boats available. The city has five main landings with countless fishing vessels, each equipped
with all the necessary and latest fishing equipment. Those visiting in winter will enjoy the warm weather,
perfect for a day of boating.


If you haven’t quite found your sea legs, don’t worry! San Diego has seven ocean piers that allow fishing.
While on these piers, you’re never far from a bait and tackle shop, which makes fishing on vacation a breeze.
Our Shelter Island hotel is near the
Shelter Island Pier giving you access to some of the best fish in the sea,
including bass, barracuda, halibut, and more.


After a full day spent experiencing the best fishing in California, come back to our cozy coastal accommodations.
Stop by our hotel restaurant, Blue Wave Bar & Grill, to sample the best catches of the day and swap stories
from the sea.
