Captain Michael Patterson is a 4th-generation angler, and operator of the family business. Having started running charters during the 1994, Catch A Lot have had plenty of years to learn exactly what makes a productive and enjoyable fishing trip. With saltwater running through the family’s blood, Capt. Michael hopes to pass on his enthusiasm to you.

Step aboard our brand new 35’ North River pilot house Powered by twin 250 HP Honda engine; you’ll reach speeds of up to 27 knots as you chase after the monstrous fish. Make use of the onboard toilet for your convenience, while you’ll take advantage of the downriggers as you troll the open waters for the bite of these beasts.

In May, you’ll stay within 20 miles of land, as the fish stay closer to shore. During the summer months, you’ll go up to 50 miles offshore in search of these beauties, before the end of the season will allow you to stay in the calmer waters again. Capt. Michael knows all the sweet spots, so get ready for a workout as you feel the bite of a Halibut at the end of your line.

He hopes to make sure that every guest enjoys and gets their hands on as many fish as possible. A passionate fisherman, he also welcomes the next generations along to learn from him. You can book: Halibut only, Combo Trip (Halibut/Salmon, Salmon/Rockfish) or Long Range Combo Charter (Target: Silver Salmon, Halibut, Ling Cod, Rock Fish). Please give us a call for more details.
