SF Bay Sportfishing San Francisco

SF Bay Sportfishing San Francisco is your ticket to an unforgettable fishing experience in The Golden City. With Captain Sean Treacy at the helm, you can sit back and wait for the fish to start biting. He’s been fishing the Bay since 1998 and knows these waters like the back of his hand. His specialty is hands-on charters for people making their first steps into the amazing world of fishing.

You’ll be fishing from the “Andrea K,” a spacious 36’ Modutech offshore sportfisher. She’s the biggest 6-pack boat in the area, so you can count on a comfortable stay on your day out. From a large cockpit and private head to a full range of navigation electronics, the Andrea K is ready for anything.

San Francisco Bay is home to a number of different fish species and Capt. Sean is ready to take you up to 20 miles out in order to find them all. Your main targets are usually Salmon, Halibut, and Sharks, with a nice supply of Sturgeon during the winter months. Whatever you end up keeping, the crew will clean it for you after the trip so you don’t have to.

All the necessary fishing gear is included in the price, so the only things you need to bring are fishing licenses, food, and drinks. Capt. Sean believes in using only the best equipment for the job, which in this case means Okuma rods and Avet reels.

Whatever it is you’re looking to catch here, Capt. Sean will do his best to make your angling dreams come true!
