Current Season & Updates

**NEW FOR FALL**

Crab season is OPEN! This year the season began on Nov 7th & we will be running crab trips through the end of March. Currently we are running Rock fish and crab combos as well as Rock fish only until December 31st. Once January 1st hits, our most popular trip offering is our Sand Dab/Crab combos.

Our four hour afternoon Rock cod trips were so popular during the Summer that we have extended them through the Fall! These 4 hour trips are mostly running Thursdays-Sundays and there are two time slots available: 8am and 2pm! We may adjust start times as the sun continues to set earlier and earlier. **Limited availability as the month of November progresses**

The month of April means Rockfish/Lingcod and Salmon fishing! Rock cod is our main fishery throughout the year lasting from April 1st-December 31st. We offer full day (7-8 hour trips) and in the summertime months we offer a shorter four hour trip in the afternoons as well. If you are traveling and unsure as to what to do with your fish-our deckhands can fillet your fish for you (for a fee) & you can take your fresh fillets over to our friends at Café Fina, who offer a “fresh catch” meal deal! For more information regarding this fishery please visit our “Trips” section.

Salmon season typically opens the first week of April and then the season can end anywhere between the end of April-August, depending on the current state of the fishery. Our trips target King Salmon and the limit is two fish per angler that must be at least 24in in length

**Now offering HALIBUT TRIPS  and Rock cod/Halibut Combo Trips for August & September** (California Halibut fishery is open all year and we will open up trips based on how the bite is doing)

 

On occasion, Blue Fin Tuna even makes an appearance in the Bay! We had some successful extremely limited load trips this year run by Captain/Co-Owner John. Call to be put on a call list for this fishery!
