SOA Charters - Coos Bay

Albacore Lane
Coos Bay OR, United States

SOA Charters fish out of Charleston and Winchester Bay Oregon, offering a variety of fishing trips. They are experts at what they do, and being led by Captain Travis Marsh means they will not only put you on the fish but ensure you are having lots of fun, too!

Captain Travis will take you in search of different species of fish. In the nearshore waters, you can target a variety of Rockfish, Crab, and Lingcod. A little further out, and you could be targeting Halibut, and in the deep offshore waters, you will fish for Bluefin Tuna.

You will fish aboard a 24-foot Hewes Craft deck boat, powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. This speed means you don’t waste time on lengthy travel out to the fishing grounds and use it instead on what you came to do. Fishing.

The boat also has all the navigation features such as a GPS and a fishfinder which will help you locate the most productive fishing spots. All fishing gear is provided and includes rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, and all safety equipment such as life jackets.

SOA Charters will happily clean, fillet and bag your fish upon return to the dock, with the exception of Tuna. Tuna can be cleaned on the docks for a small fee by the cleaners available there.

Captain Travis carries a USCG six-pack charter license, he is CPR and First-Aid certified and holds a TWIC card.

Captain Travis has fished his whole life, having grown up in Washington, he fished the entire state and the coast of Washington. He later moved to Oregon where he took up fishing in the shallow waters and in the ocean. Travis is a fun and lovable person whose previous guests have all enjoyed spending time with, and most of whom are repeat customers. He accredits his love of fishing to his late mother who is known to their family as Granny Jean. Travis says his late mother was an avid fisherwoman who had instilled the love of fishing in Travis from a very young age.
