They are real experts and experiences. This charter is the best of best in north cal overall



This was a great trip! Captain Ty and the deck hand were both very personable, knowledgeable and helpful! They seemed sincerely interested in the trip participants having a great experience and catching several species of fish. We happily took home our fish after the Captain cleaned and filleted it at our request.

Very enjoyable day, limited out on rockfish , great weather, and experienced crew. Would definitely recommend! Will be booking again soon for November crab/cod trip!

The trip was very fun , had limits on rockfish very quick, tried for salmon but salmon has been slow , both deckhand and captain wouldn’t hesitate to make conversation with you , both super nice people and helpful , super excited to go back out in November for some crab and rockfish

Even though he only had 3 customers, Captain Ty decided he wanted to fish because the weather and seas were so good. Rather than wasting time fishing for salmon that weren’t biting for anyone, we fished for rockfish and ling cod, and limited out with very nice-sized fish by noon. Captain and the crew were friendly and helpful, and the whole experience was great. We will be back.
