Captain Scott’s experience and guest centered approach gives novice and experienced anglers alike, a great foundation for a successful day aboard.

  You’ll fish a 2020 custom 30’ Northwest Aluminum Craft that can accommodate up to 7 guests. It’s powered by twin 225 HP Mercury SeaPro 4.6L V8 outboards and a comprehensive navigational suite from simrad that will help you have a safe and fun trip. There’s a private marine head (toilet) forward, and guest lunch and beverage cooler (seperate from the fish cooler) for your convenience.

  The species you can encounter on your trip include Chinook (King) and Coho (Silver) Salmon,  Halibut, Lingcod, and rockfish.  You can retain or release the fish you catch and you’re welcome to bring kids aboard.

The captain provides premium fishing gear,  and will clean your catch after the trip. Please bring snacks and drinks for your group, as well as fishing licenses.
