Captain Rollo’s Kids at Sea program organizes and funds marine awareness fishing trips for children who might otherwise never have an opportunity to experience being on the ocean. Since 1999, over 130,000 kids have benefitted from our program.
One of our most popular annual fundraisers is Reel-A-Week. We sell tickets at $25 each and limit them to just 1500. We are giving away over $12,000 in top quality fishing reels this year with 31 consecutive weekly drawings. We notify you when your ticket wins and mail your new reel to you. It is as easy as that. The kids win with every ticket you buy.
If you would like to help us get more kids on the water and have a chance at winning some great reels just give me a call or reply to this email. California law prohibits us from selling raffle tickets online, so just call me or respond to this note providing your name, phone number and address and we will get back to you to get your credit card info. We begin the drawings on Tuesday June 11th and they continue until Jan 7th.
If you prefer, you can just send a check made out to Friends of Rollo and I will make sure you get your tickets. Make sure to include your phone number and mailing address.

Just heard from the Shogun, out on a 4-day Shimano Sponsored trip. The first day they had 42 YT and 30 Bonita, 8-12#. Yesterday the weather was up and the fish were down so not much action yesterday. Today they have 15 BFT so far, a handful are 25-35# and the rest are 50-80#. They currently have 7-8 hanging. We will check in with you later.
We still have spots on Saturday's 1.5 day, book now while the spots are still available. The 1.5 days in April are booked through Fisherman's Landing, so please call 619-221-8500.
Wish us luck and more biting fish!
Good Morning Anglers-
Shogun returned this morning from their 3-day trip over the weekend. They had a full passenger load of 30 eager anglers. The first 2 days they fished Yellowtail and searched for BFT. The BFT were being stubborn as always. Finally on the last day they were able to get the tuna to bite. They ended the trip with 90 YT (10-12#) and 20 BFT (50-80#).
We are full on tomorrow's 1.5 day but have a few spots on the weekend's 3-day (4/12-4/15). Valid passports are required. Book online or call the office.
