Step aboard “Flash 1” a 32’ Wegley commercial fishing boat previously used in Bristol Bay and the Bearing Sea in Alaska. This vessel features a 14’ beam and weighs nearly 12 tons, providing a safe and stable ride across the waves. Onboard you will find advanced fishing technology and all the gear you need. Many onboard amenities cater your comfort, including an onboard toilet, cushioned deck chairs, and a stereo system. On top of it all, Flash is also eco-friendly, meeting all the latest clean air requirements.
While fishing San Francisco Bay, you can target many sought-after species, from Salmon, Striped Bass, Halibut, Lingcod, and Rockfish, to a variety of Sharks. You will also have a chance to take in iconic views, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and the vibrant wildlife of the Bay Area.
Capt. Steve and his crew are dedicated to helping you get the most out of your deep sea fishing experience. They provide hand built rods by Mac’s Custom Rods which are matched with Avet reels. Rods and reels for lefties are also available, in addition to two-speed reels for children and anyone who wants to use them. Capt. Talmadge keeps his trips limited to six passengers to maximize your comfort and fishing time. You will receive as much assistance as needed in order to land your very own Bay Area catch.
Flash Sport Fishing Charters provides everything you need. All you have to bring is a California fishing license and your lunch. Capt. Steve is also a photographer and is happy to take photos of you and your catch.
