The Pursuit is one of the most spacious 65-foot boats you will ever fish on. Her 23-foot beam provides tons of fishing room. The Pursuit has a large galley that seats plenty of people as well as 24 bunks which are a first come first served basis, all of which are open for use on daily trips. The Pursuit departs daily at 6 a.m and returns usually between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

With a speed of 10.7 knots, the Pursuit can fish anywhere around Catalina Island, including the famous Farnsworth Bank. The Pursuit may also fish between Point Dume and Dana Point on the coastline, depending on which area is producing the best fishing. Catches may include Yellowtail, White Seabass, Barracuda, Bonito, Halibut, Sand & Calico Bass and many assorted bottom fish. The Pursuit's Captain, John Woodrum, has been fishing local waters for over 18 years. Together with his friendly and knowledgeable crew, you can always expect a 100% effort from Pursuit's great team.
