Potluck Fishing TripsThese trips are perfect for the family and for a group of adults. We fish within a couple miles of shore. The morning trip usually runs from 7am to 1pm. The afternoon trip (not always available) usually runs from 2pm to 6pm. We target rockcod (pacific snapper), lingcod, halibut and white seabass.
Both morning and afternoon trips are productive. Morning trips tend to have a little quieter water and last anywhere from three to six hours. For some, afternoon trips are more attractive because you won't necessariy need to get a hotel in town the night before and if you're traveling you won't have to drive in the dark to get to the boat for a morning departure.
Each angler is allowed to take home ten rockcod (pacific snapper), two lingcod, three halibut and three white seabass. There is no size limit on snapper but there size limits for the other species. All of these are some of the best eating fish you'll ever have.
We use proven rod and reels that are configured to work well on our boat. But, if you have a lucky rod you would like to try out by all means bring it! And, if you have some tackle you would like to try out bring that too. We use eight-ounce leads so please have something in the weight range to minimize tangles. We use fresh dead or when available, live bait such as anchovies and mackerel.
When we get done fishing your deckhand will filet or gut-and-gill (whole fish) your catch to take home.
We hold the IGFA (International Game Fish Association) world record for olive rockcod (set in 2016).
