​About Us -

Each Spring, charters are scheduled out of Dana Wharf and San Diego for the members to enjoy.

During the year the ladies compete for a variety of trophies.  To be a member in good standing you only need to attend one meeting and two charters.  To receive the yearly award pin, you only need 40 points and 4 species.  Rules and Regulations can be found here on this website.

The lucky lady winning the Most Points out of Dana Wharf Sportfishing will walk away with free passage for an entire year from Dana Wharf Sportfishing!  The club is also generously supported by the sportfishing industry and local merchants.

With your Dana Wharf Lady Anglers membership card you can receive valuable discounts at Dana Wharf Sportfishing landings as well as local tackle stores.
