Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I started fishing young with my father and loved being out on the water. He taught me the ins and outs of fishing the Oregon Coast and the Columbia River with its tributaries. 15 years ago I decided to start sharing my knowledge with others and it has been the greatest career anyone could choose. We use a variety of fishing techniques depending on where we are fishing. On the ocean, it's a combination of live bait, lures, and jigs. On the river it's similar, but we also use fresh or frozen shad for catching Sturgeon. Rest assured, we will have all the latest and greatest gear to catch the fish. We even make our own jigs.
