Oxnard California Sportfishing for White Sharks?

A quick visit to a sport fishing website finds an outfit in Oxnard California that claims, for the lofty sum of just $1,895, to allow you to catch white sharks.

The only problem is the California Department of Fish and Game banned fishing for white sharks in 1994. The effort to get white shark fishing banned in the state of California took several years with many use groups including the sport fishing industry pushing for change.

Ongoing legislation to protect white sharks in California waters remains important and internationally trend setting legislation.

So why are the fleet boats of, all five of them, patrolling the waters from Oxnard to Marina del Ray offering white sharks as part of their monster shark experience?

Types of sharks caught:
  • Mako Sharks
  • Leopard Sharks
  • Oceanic White Tips
  • Thresher Sharks
  • Tope (Soupfin) Sharks
  • White Sharks
  • Blue Sharks
  • Nurse Sharks
  • Lemon Sharks
  • Hammerhead
  • Bigeye Thresher
  • Horn Sharks
