Salmon

  Here in Humboldt county we fish for King Salmon. Each year our salmon season varies dramatically. Generally, as early as late May to September (Labor day) we get a shot at these tasty fish.
   We can fish very close to shore ~50' of water and out as deep as 250'. So, it can encompass most of our area. We could run North as far as Trinidad or South to Cape Mendocino and out 8-10 miles.
   Most of the time we troll but at times we would be mooching.

California Halibut

The California Halibut is a smaller species of halibut found in Humboldt Bay. They average between 5-10 pounds. Sometimes much larger ones hit the deck. A totally different fight. Since California Halibut live in very shallow water, they hit and take off! A crazy fast fish.
    We drift with light tackle and live bait in the channels in the North Bay mostly but at times we catch them along the jetties.

Bottomfish
(Lingcod & Rockfish)

 Here along the North Coast, we have quality Rockfish and Lingcod fishing available to us. We can run North or South depending on ocean conditions. Either way, we have an amazing mix of rockfish. At any time Lingcod are caught as well. Often, Lingcod eats your rockfish or even a smaller Lingcod. What an amazing fishery. Sometimes it is really fast. Total mayhem! Lots of fun and excellent eating fish.

*Redding Rock trips are available but must be specially arranged. Prices vary depending on the trip. Must have a group of 4 to be able to book this trip.

Albacore

    These are by far the most exciting fish we get to fish for in Humboldt.  Tuna hit hard and never stop. Frequently, when one hits several others hit too. In a brief moment, the boat becomes alive with an excited fisherman fighting fish in all directions.
    We troll initially and depending on conditions follow up with live bait or throw jigs and swimbaits.
    Keep in mind this fishery is the most difficult to plan due to the need for them to come within range. So, if you are interested get your name on my tuna list ASAP (Please contact me).  Be advised it happens fast. Often I only have 24 hours' notice prior to departure. Frequently, people near the bottom of the list go simply because they are available. That is tuna fishing. It's lots of fun.

Multi-Species Charter 

Multi-species trips are usually a blend of two different fisheries. Rockfish/Lingcod and Pacific Halibut, Salmon and Pacific Halibut, or Rockfish/Lingcod and Salmon.
These trips are an hour longer than single species.  When limits are reached, we head back in. 

$300 Per Person

Pacific Halibut

 The Pacific Halibut is by far the most desirable table fair available to us.  Our season is highly regulated much like King Salmon. Usually May-October.  We are given a quota and when it is met we are done. So don't wait!
  They are deep (200'-300').  We use heavy bottom fishing gear. There is a reason! Every drop could be a 50+ pound fish. Most years, much larger fish are caught. Hopefully one of these big ones could be yours.

 

  Pacific Halibut hit hard! If you want a fight, these are the fish for you.

Crab

 In late fall, usually second Saturday in November we get to shift gears a bit for a more casual fishery. Dungeness Crab! Bring a five-gallon bucket and let's go. When we have a good ocean I will run crabbing trips until late December or until the commercial season begins. Trips are usually short. 2-4 hours depending on distance to gear.

Eco-Tours/ Private Family Trips

The North Coast has so much history.  Humboldt Bay and the surrounding headlands are beautiful! We have so much to see. Both large and small. I am equipped with small nets, hand lenses, and tanks to look at microscopic critters. These are frequently overlooked amazing wildlife. And of course whales. Our predominant whale populations are Humpback whales. Usually, we find them about 10-15 miles South West over the Eel River Canyon. Occasionally we see Grey, Blue, and Orcas. In addition,  harbor porpoises are frequently spotted offshore.  Elephant seals, sea lions, and harbor seals can at times be everywhere. Our duck and seabird populations are quite diverse as well. Puffins are known to nest on the rocks at Cape Mendocino as well. For plant lovers, marine algae are one of my passions. Let's talk seaweed! 

 Private family trips are also available upon request. I can take up to six passengers for private family occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, or memorials). 

Price varies depending on trip.
