Big Dave's Fishing with Big Dave – Sled

Big Dave’s Fishing Adventures offers guided fishing trips along the Oregon coast. The crew has trips for the most avid angler as well as the beginner. Captain Dave Manners mainly fishes Buoy 10, Tillamook Bay, tide waters, and the Wilson, Kilchis, and Trask rivers in Tillamook, Oregon.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 26’ Umpqua Marine aluminum fishing boat that can fit up to 6 guests. It runs on a 200 HP Yamaha engine and uses GPS, fishfinder, and radio systems for safe and efficient navigation. The boat also features an ice-box so you can store the fish you catch.

Enjoy either Fall Chinook fishing (mid-September to December), Winter Steelhead fishing (December to mid-April), or Spring Chinook (May-June) along some of Oregon’s most famous fisheries. In addition to these species, you may also have the chance to target Black Rockfish and Lingcod. The choice of techniques you can use is vast. You can use light and heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, fly fishing, and drift fishing.

You can bring kids on your trip, as the captain loves having a family atmosphere on the boat. Also, you’re welcome to keep your catch. As for the things you’ll need for the trip, yours is just to take care of licenses, snacks, and drinks. The rest will be taken care of by the captain.
