About LA Sportfishing

LA Sportfishing is a sportfishing charter service based in Marina del Rey, California at Dock 55. LA Sportfishing is owned and operated by JDF Ventures, LLC.

While we strive to make your experience on the water as enjoyable as possible, safety always comes first at LA Sportfishing. Your Captain will begin the trip with a safety orientation. If the Captain feels at any time that the safety of the passengers or crew is in jeopardy, trips may be cancelled or cut short. Better to live to fish another day!
