Prospector's Fishing Adventures

Looking for an offshore fishing adventure on the Oregon Coast?
Look no further! Come fishing with Prospector’s Fishing Adventures, where every offshore trip is a thrill of a lifetime!
Experience the thrill of fighting a monster Halibut or Tuna to delicious Lingcod, various types of Rockfish, Salmon, and the tasty Dungeness Crab!
Our home port is South Beach Marina in Newport Oregon, but we will take trips out of Depoe Bay, Coos Bay, and various other ports in Oregon dependent on weather conditions and where the fishing is better at that time of year.
Trips range from a short 5-hour Rockfish trip to a 12-hour Tuna trip. All Halibut trips are 10 hours. All trips can be customized to maximize your fishing adventure. Crabbing can be added to any trip for an additional fee with the exception of Tuna Trips.

Your fishing adventure will start with a safety briefing given by Captain Lyle aboard a 30-foot North River Offshore boat constructed specifically for the offshore waters of the Oregon Coast. It is powered by twin Yamaha 200hp outboard engines, with an enclosed cab to get away from the elements. A marine head is also available for guests’ use.  The boat is equipped with 2 state-of-the-art depth sounders/fish finders, 3 VHF radios, radar, and an autopilot. The Prospector is capable of reaching speeds of 45 knots as you travel to your fishing destination and carries a maximum of 6 anglers: 4 anglers on longer-range Tuna trips.

All Rods, Reels, Terminal Tackle, and Bait are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, catching fish!
Downriggers and Outriggers are used for trolling for Salmon or Tuna.
All you need is an Oregon fishing license, an angling tag if fishing for Halibut or Salmon, a shellfish license if chasing Crab, and some drinks or snacks of your choice to make the most of your time on the water.

    FREE Cancellation 30 days notice
    4 Hour Trip, starts at 8:00 AM
    Seasonal trip Sep 1 - Oct 31

    Crabbing in the Bay is always tide-dependent so a starting time is hard to pick more than a couple of weeks in advance and trip dependent as fishing trips will take precedence over crabbing trips. Crabbing in the Ocean is always very weather dependent. Kids have a great time crabbing, consider a bay trip for the first-timer! Please call for availability or small groups.
