Bottom Fishing and More
One of our most popular family activities, bottom fishing trips are great for fishermen of any skill level. We frequently take out first time fishermen as young as 4 and 5 years old as well as skilled veterans. We highly recommend bottom fishing for a group considering their first fishing experience in the San Juans. Usually everyone catches fish and the techniques are easy to learn. We can also drop some pots and catch crabs or prawns!
Seasons: Bottom fishing is open year round
Shrimp and Halibut are open in May
Lingcod is open May 1st - June 15th
Crabbing is open July 15 - September 30th (except Tues & Wed)
We offer 4.5 to 5 hour Salmon charters from July to October as allowed by Washington State. During the summer we can get silver, king, and pink salmon. Salmon fishing is more hit and miss than bottom fishing. The pay off can be big but patience is necessary. For that reason it is not recommended for young children or for first time fishermen. Salmon charters are limited to a maximum of 6 per boat.
Season: Summer July 1st - October 30th
Winter November 1st - April 30th
