Rock Bottom Fishing Charters

Rock Bottom Fishing Charters invites you for a day of fishing out of Depoe Bay, OR. This is a veteran-owned business that specializes in smaller fishing charters that are family-friendly. By booking a trip with this charter you’re signing up for beautiful water of the Pacific Ocean, unforgettable sunrise, and fresh salty air blowing across the deck.

The journey starts aboard the "Myla Rae".  She’s a 2015 26’ Hewes Craft Alaskan Series Vessel powered by a Honda 250 HP engine, along with a 25 HP kicker. With a heated fully enclosed cabin, you are able to be comfortable both in and out of nasty weather.

In case you’re wondering what you can catch on these trips, you can go after Lingcod, Black and Blue Seabass, Rockfish, and Halibut. There are also some protected species which have to be released, such as the ancient Yellow Eye and off-season Cabezon. The trips are season-dependent, but there’s always something to catch, no matter what time of the year you choose to come.

The captain will make sure you’re provided with a first-class service featuring top-notch fishing equipment, such as rods and reels, bait, and tackle. You’ll need to bring your fishing licenses, food, and drinks. As the weather can be unpredictable, make sure to bring the appropriate cold-weather gear and rain gear needed for the trip.

Rock Bottom Fishing Charters welcomes you aboard. You only need to choose when you’re coming!

My name is Captain Neil Bohne originally from Missoula Montana. I have served in the United States Air Force for just over 20 years and recently retired in 2018. For the last 14 years, Happy Valley Oregon just outside of Portland has been my home. Since I'm passionate about the great outdoors, crabbing, fishing, and serving great people, I have decided to provide guiding services to include Bottom Fishing (Rockfish), Ling Cod fishing, Halibut fishing, Sturgeon fishing, and both Inland and Ocean Crabbing. I look forward to seeing you onboard.
