The choice of fish is great and the natural surroundings will charm you, so come aboard and create many fond memories fishing in Richmond!

You’ll start your journey on a 28’ Farallon saltwater fishing boat that can sit up to 5 guests. It’s powered by a 330 HP Volvo D-6 engine, uses all the modern navigation technology, and features a flybridge, portable toilet, and bed. It has also got a livewell to supply you with live bait.

Captain John will take care of all the rods, reels, terminal tackle, as well as live bait. If you wish, he’ll clean and fillet your catch as well, free of charge. Before you go, you should only bring your licenses and some snacks and drinks.

Captain John grew up in Rodeo, CA, and started commercial Halibut fishing in the 80s. He wanted to expand his business by taking other people fishing. Even though he charges people to fish, a genuine smile is the best tip for him and his crew! He believes that if he can make you happy, his job is complete.
