Sturgeon fishing on the Columbia River and surrounding areas are plentiful and often very large! On these trips, you can catch a sturgeon any where from 12 inches to 15 foot long! During a select couple months in May you can also keep some sizes during the retention season. Trips during catch and release days are offered year round and provide awesome thrils and of course a great workout! You may be thinking you have the monster hooked but the fish knows he has you hooked on this fun fishery!...Read More

Fishing out of a 29’ D Tech, he can accommodate up to 6 anglers. The boat is powered by a Suzuki 250 engine and Yamaha kicker motor with Garmin electronics. The boat is wheelchair accessible and he encourages all guests with disabilities to join him on board and encourage sharing the adventure with kids as well. He likes to implement a whole suite of different fishing techniques such as trolling, jigging and spinning to suit the fishery.
He offers a wide range of fishing trip choices including crabbing, sturgeon fishing (retention season as well as catch and release), trolling for salmon and bottom fishing for ling cod, black bass and halibut, weather permitting. He also drops crab pots every ocean trip. All anglers who book a trip are entered into the annual end of year drawing for a free trip!

A memorable day was had by my wife and I in the Pacific Ocean - we had great company in the form of the Captain of Iz and the Ace of Jace. We were looking for the Big But, the halibut - that is. But none were to be found ...Read More on our day out. Nice salmon though and Dungeness crab. Just means we will meet again.

Had a great trip. Caught hundreds of nice size Crab, and caught several Coho. He does a great job. I’d highly recommend.

Craig was great! He was very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and took great care of us. He knew all the spots to take us for great fishing and kept his boat very clean. I’d recommend him to anyone interested in an amazing fishing experience!
