MEGA-BITE is Santa Cruz Fishing Charters VERY COMFORTABLE 32’ #Uniflite Sport Sedan with 160 sf of enclosed cabin to keep you warm and dry. Her twin Go-Green gasoline 5.7 liter 315 horsepower #Vortec engines (that's 630 HP!) provide for a very smooth, reliable and when needed, fast ride up to 30 mph. And, because she's gasoline, you won't choke on diesel fumes all day. In fact, you won't even notice the exhaust at all! We are also the only #charterboat in California that prohibits any smoking of any kind. We figure if we're going out to the pristine ocean air, it would be nice to be able to breath it.

MEGA-BITE also utilizes state-of-the-art technology making her the number one #charterboat in #MontereyBay. She's comfortable, she's smart and she's fast. You're going to like her :)

#FishingReport on the #MontereyBay

November 25 – Crab production limited, but we made up for it by putting 59 blues and olives in the box. Sea conditions started a little bumpy, but by late morning the sea flattened out and we had an enjoyable time reeling in future #fishtacos.

November 24 – Happy Thanksgiving everybody! What a great day of fishing. Crab still slow but the #pacificsnapper bite is still going strong.

November 23 – Bye bye swell and hello fish! Limits of quality blue, olive and #redrockfish

#FishingReport - Nov 11 – What a gorgeous day on the water. Headed out to our crab pot farm and the crabs were big and plentiful. Then headed over for some #lingcod and snapper action and again they were BIG. Nov 16 – Averaged eight crabs per person and crabs as big as three pounds!
