Newport Beach Open Party to Catalina 3/4 Day boat
The Freelance runs both open party (open to the general public trips) and charter private fishing trips throughout the year. Captain Chris Goble is a 25 year veteran and knows both the islands and coastal regions better than almost anyone. Very knowledgeable captain with great working relationships means he has the best information available to select which locations to fish and to meet or exceed expectations with his customers. He is the most popular captain at the landing with the customers, he always puts in the maximum effort every trip and they respect that immensely. Captain Chris is also an excellent fisherman, which is very important in understanding how to position the ship best on reefs and other structure holding gamefish as well as many other subtle tricks that can make the difference between a great day and a fair one.
Limited load open to the general public trips are regularly available and highly recommended. Catalina Island is the usual destination and giant yellowtail and white sea bass are some of the highly prized gamefish available.
Private ship rentals are also available for all size groups up to 90 persons. Groups of 15 to 50 persons, this is a perfect option (of course even smaller than 15 would be very very comfortable). Indoor kitchen with booth seating, sundeck, surround outside seating, and a slough of other comforts make for a very enjoyable fishing experience. Trip lengths available include ½ day, ¾ day (10 hours) and the longest a full day or 12 hour trip. Twilight or evening fishing trips are also available. The Freelance is a favorite among local fishing enthusiasts; you can count on Captain Chris and his crew to go 110% to make your fishing trip the best.
