Sportfishing At Its Finest

Helgren’s Oceanside Sportfishing was founded in 1978 by Richard and Caroline Helgren. They decided to leave Channel Islands Sportfishing Center in Oxnard, California, to take a journey down the coast with their boat, the Electra, to start a new sportfishing landing in Oceanside, California.

Today, Helgren’s Oceanside Sportfishing is still family-owned and operated. With over 40 years of experience fishing the waters of Oceanside, Helgren’s is the industry expert on the area. The business has expanded over the years from a simple one-boat fishing business to a landing that operates several different types of vessels, providing trips and services ranging from multi-day, long-range fishing trips to whale watching and sea life excursions to burials at sea.

The Helgren family believes that the key to their success as a sportfishing landing over the years, besides having a little luck on their side while fishing, is the fact that they are still family-owned and operated, which has allowed them to provide passengers a more personal experience.
