The San Francisco Bay area has long been one of the best places to fish for salmon in California and the coastline along Marin County has long been a hot area to fish for salmon during the height of the salmon season. Boats based in Sausalito have the fastest access to the fishing grounds, as far as Point Reyes to the North, the Farallon Islands to the west or Half Moon Bay to the south. Limits of king salmon (two fish per fishermen) must meet the minimum size requirement of 24 inches long. During peak fishing times, we do our best to hit limits. The salmon season in the Bay Area usually runs from April through October, as determined by the regulations set by the federal and state fishery management agencies.

We are one of the few boats that ice our fish.

Call us at 415-458-8700 to reserve your spot on the boat or to book a charter or to find out more.
