Izzi's Big Mouth Guide Service

Welcome to Izzi’s Big Mouth Guide Service, a fishing guide service based in Garibaldi, Oregon that also operates in Tillamook and Netarts Bay, Buoy 10 fishery, all the Columbia River, and everything in between. Whatever location you choose, you and Captain Craig Izzi will be fishing the spots with the biggest chance of catching. The captain’s got 40 years of fishing experience and he knows how to create an excellent trip. Join him and have a great time on the waters around Garibaldi!

You’ll be fishing from a 29’ D Tech aluminum fishing boat that can accommodate up to 6 anglers. It’s powered by one 250 HP engine and uses a comprehensive electronic navigation system. The boat is wheelchair-accessible and Captain Craig encourages all the guests with disabilities to join him aboard. The boat will provide you with an ice-box so you can store your fish and drinks and is also equipped with downriggers.

The range of fishing you can do is wide. Depending on the weather, on the offer are ocean fishing, Sturgeon catch and release as well as retention season, and bottom fishing for Lingcod and Black Seabass. You can also chase Dungeness Crab, Salmon, Steelhead, and Halibut. You’ll catch by bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, and jigging. If the season is right, you can keep all the fish you catch. Kids are more than welcome to join the trip, so do bring them as well.

Captain Craig covers you for all the fishing gear, live bait, and lures. He’ll also clean, fillet, and bag your catch. Before you leave, just make sure you’ve packed your licenses, snacks, and drinks.

Join Izzi’s Big Mouth Guide Service and have a true fishing adventure in Garibaldi or Astoria!
