Captain John is dedicated to customizing each trip according to your preferences, ensuring a unique and satisfying experience. Whether you're into bottom fishing, trolling, drift fishing, or jigging, the techniques employed will be adapted to the specific trip and targeted species. The 5 to 10-hour excursions typically focus on sought-after catches like Halibut, Salmon, Rockfish, Lingcod, Sturgeon, and Shark, the selection influenced by weather conditions and the time of year.

Captain John is a fishing expert! We, as a group of four, managed to reel in ten Sturgeon under his guidance. Without a doubt, we'll be planning more fishing trips with him in the future.

Had an amazing day in the Bay! Landed 7 Sturgeon!!! Looking forward to heading out again soon.

John and his deckhand Johnny were fantastic. Their personalities were top-notch, and they kept us entertained with constant jokes. We all reached our limits on Dungeness, and they seamlessly transitioned us to rockfish. They went the extra mile to ensure we had an amazing time and our freezers were filled. I've already recommended them to others and wanted to make sure to leave a positive review!

Captain John and First Mate Johnny were incredibly knowledgeable and attentive to our group. We came back exhausted but having reached our limits! The action was non-stop. I can't praise this trip enough. If you're considering it, book a trip—you won't regret it.
