What we offer

Phenix offers both open party trips and private charters varying from 4hrs to 12 hrs carrying a maximum of 18 passengers.  We have trips scheduled every day from April 1st - December 31st, targeting Rockfish and we will seize any opportunity to capitalize on gamefish we may come across (halibut, white sea bass, tuna, etc), as long as doing so will not conflict with current Fish & Wildlife regulations. 

 At the moment, all Phenix's open party trips are scheduled to depart from Patriot Sportfishing in Port San Luis, California.  During trips 8 hours or longer, the crew will cook breakfast, lunch and ensure Phenix galley is completely stocked with your favorite beverages and snacks. Save yourself the time, headache and mess by having our experienced crew also process your catch at the end of the day for additional costs. All food, drink, fish processing and gratuity is optional.

* due to volatile fuel prices, rates are subject to change. For current pricing,  please contact our landing at (805) 595-7200 or view our schedule

Its waters are home to large areas of rock and reef , making Pt Buchon the perfect destination when your time on the water is limited. This dynamic stretch of fishing grounds provides a variety of fishing conditions, ensuring no two trips are the same. Fishable depth: 30-300’.

8HR 3/4 Day | Pt Sal
Pt Sal, Ca.  Lion rock
One of the local favorites, the 8HR gives us the opportunity to make it down to Pt Sal and back before your favorite sports game. The caves, cliffs, boulders and spires visible on this ancient shore should provide some insight on the bottom contour available during the trip.  The reefs near the coast are abundant with life and home to a wide variety of rockfish, Lingcod,  and other coastal species.   
The deepest area of the reef being a mere 140’ at high tide, this is the perfect place to try out all your shallow water tackle!

$120 Open Party | $1920 Charter
10HR Full Day | Purisima Point
F/v Phenix
If you want to fish here from the shore, you’d better be connected. Purisima Point is home to Vandenburg Air Force Base, making coastal access to its stellar shallow water fishery  impossible for most. When the weather permits and Elon isn’t launching a rocket, Purisima Point hosts some of the most exciting rockfishing experiences on the west coast.
