6 Pack open party & 6 Pack private charter trips on our new Boston Whaler! Check back for updates soon!

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**

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 or the Crabhouse, who offer a “fresh catch” meal deal! For more information regarding this fishery please visit our “Trips” section.

**Now offering HALIBUT TRIPS  and Rock cod/Halibut Combo Trips on limited availability based on the bite** (California Halibut fishery is open all year and we will open up trips based on how the bite is doing) We will also be planning a series of “exploratory” flat fish trips targeting multiple species.


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!
