Good Time Charlie Sportfishing

Good Time Charlie Sportfishing is located in Newport, Oregon and runs ocean fishing trips out of South Beach Marina. Are you visiting the coast for the day or a long weekend? Come spend a memorable day on the ocean with a friendly crew and try your hand at catching some of the tastiest seafood you can find.

Capt. Joe will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 6 to 12-hour trips, mainly fishing for Halibut, Lingcod, Salmon, Crab, Rockfish, and Black Rockfish, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, big game fishing, handline, and jigging.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 27’ Northwest boat that can safely take up to 6 anglers. This boat comes with a toilet and wireless trolling motor.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Please make sure to buy a valid fishing license ahead of time. Bait isn’t included in the trip price, so make sure to check with the captain what your options are before the trip.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Good Time Charlie Sportfishing.

    Lingcod/Rockfish trips are a great way to get out on the water. You will target Lingcod, several species of Rockfish, and Cabezon when the season is open. Sometimes you may even score nearshore Halibut if you’re lucky! Trips are usually back to the dock by about noon with coolers full of excellent table fare. Bottom fish trips are great for people who are new to ocean fishing since they are usually shorter in duration and closer to shore. This is a private trip with just your party on board.

    The ocean salmon fishery is one of the crew's favorites – the fish is usually close to the surface and the action can be really fast-paced once you get into it. We will fish for coho and chinook until the coho quota is reached and then target chinook exclusively.

    8 Hour Trip – Halibut Private
    FREE Cancellation 14 days notice
    8 Hour Trip, starts at 6:00 AM
    $650
    Halibut trips are long days as you'll usually travel into deeper water to find this delicious flatfish. Often you'll be 15 miles or more from the harbor, so be prepared for a long day on the water. This fish likes deep, cold water, so be ready for a good workout grinding it up from the bottom, especially if you hook into a big one! If we get our Halibut limit early, we'll try to catch some other species too! Spring Halibut season is May 12 - June 30. This is a private trip.

    Seasonal trip Jul 1 - Sep 30
    $700
    Albacore Tuna trips are highly dependent on the ocean conditions. Tuna show up when the ocean conditions are right for its food. Usually, this happens sometime in July and the species can be available into October if conditions hold. The crew uses several techniques to catch Tuna, including trolling, vertical jigging, casting swimbaits/small jigs, and more. If you’ve never had Tuna on the line, it's an experience you won't forget. Tuna trips are long days; often you will fish 50 miles off the coast!

For Captain Joe, there's something magical about being on the ocean; the experiences he's had on the water are some of the most memorable and vivid memories of his entire life. The ocean challenges, rewards, humbles, and teaches... sometimes all at the same time! Although this is the captain's first year running Good Time Charlie Sportfishing, he has spent his entire life on the water, not only fishing, but kayaking, snorkeling, racing sailboats, and more. He's fished all over the West Coast for numerous species and enjoyed the challenge of the hunt and especially the table fare of freshly-caught seafood. It’s Captain Joe's goal to provide a memorable experience in the ocean that is safe and fun. He enjoys meeting new people and sharing what he knows about catching fish off the coast. One of his favorite experiences taking people out into the ocean is seeing them land their first Salmon, Halibut, or whatever kind of fish they are chasing. The captain will work hard to get you on the fish and make sure you have a great time.
