Ocean Obsession and Captain Dave welcome you to Winchester Bay! Join this experienced and reliable guide on one of his daily journeys to the ocean and see what makes so many people get back again and again. Whether you’re an experienced angler or a complete novice, there’s a spot for you on his boat.

You’ll be fishing on a 27’ North River boat that accommodates up to 6 guests (but it’s more comfortable for 4 guests). This pilothouse is powered by twin 115 HP Yamaha engines and reaches the speed of 30 knots. There’s seating space both inside the cabin and outside. No matter where you go, you can count on a safe and reliable ride on this vessel.

These fun trips will take you after Halibut, Salmon, and Tuna, with the possibility of crabbing as well. Captain Dave doesn’t like to be bored so if you aren’t catching fish he is moving to find them. All trips are shared, so if you don’t have enough people in your group, you can count on joining other anglers at the deck.

All fishing equipment is covered by the captain but you need to take care of fishing licenses. Bring your lunch, drinks, and snacks to enjoy the experience to the fullest. After the trip, you get to keep the catch.

Ocean Obsession hopes to be your host on your next fishing adventure. Set the date and see you at the dock!
