Top Fishing Charters in Emeryville


Whenever you decide to go to Emeryville for your fishing adventure, you won’t be disappointed. Never-ending action and consistently tight lines keep anglers busy year-round. Nestled right on San Francisco Bay, this town combines the best of both fishing worlds – the bay and the ocean. This means that whenever you visit, there will be plenty of Emeryville fishing charters to choose from.
 
Striped Bass and Halibut are favorites in the bay, both because they’re fun to catch and because they’re always available. The oldest “tenant” of these parts is prehistoric Sturgeon. When you’re ready for some serious rod-bending action, go to San Pablo Bay. This is an especially productive spot during winter when Sturgeon gather to feed.
 
Chinook Salmon enter the fold mid-year in San Francisco Bay and then you can expect excellent catches followed by delicious seafood dinner. You could also end the trip with Rockfish, Flounder, Leopard Shark, Lingcod, or White Seabass under your belt. If you’re ready for the ultimate fishing chase, hit the ocean offshore waters in fall to land Albacore Tuna.
 
Whether you’d like to target a particular species or you’d prefer a bit of “potlucking,” there’s a guide out there with the perfect trip for you. Half day and full day trips seem to be most popular, with shorter excursions perfect for families. Longer expeditions and specialized trips for Salmon and bottom dwellers are the top picks of anglers looking for a prized catch.
 
Eager to try your luck on San Francisco Bay without actually heading into the city? Check out guides in Emeryville. You won’t regret it!

January
Start the year by going after the dinosaur fish – Sturgeon! Enjoy their amazing acrobatic displays but don’t let the line break. Anglers looking for a more relaxed day on the water can go crabbing.

 

February
With Sturgeon still being the most prestigious fish to target, February also offers a good amount of Flounder and Leopard Shark. Halibut are also biting a bit further from the shore.

 

March
Sturgeon, Flounder, and Leopard Shark are still present in high numbers. If you want to explore deeper waters, go after Halibut. Striped Bass are becoming very active around the Golden Gate Bridge.

 

April
It’s official, Striped Bass takes over the fishing scene! In April, they usually only reach up to 10 pounds but there are lots of them. You can also target some delicious Lingcod and Halibut, as well as Dungeness Crab.

 

May
Striped Bass, Flounder, Halibut, and Sharks – with so many species to target, “potluck” fishing might be the best way to go. Salmon season usually opens in May, which is the best news for both local and visiting anglers.

 

June
The King is here to take the throne! King Salmon varies a lot in size but you can always count on its great taste and even better fighting abilities. This is your last chance to catch some delicious Crab before the season closes at the end of the month.

 

July
it's time to go offshore! Take an extended trip and target Rockfish and Albacore Tuna outside the bay, and chances are, you’ll come back with a lot of amazing fishing memories.

 

August
It’s not an exaggeration to say that wherever you go in August, all the fish are biting. Whether you stay in the bay or decide to go offshore, whatever you’d like to target, from White Seabass to Albacore Tuna, it’s out there and it’s hungry.

 

September
There’s no end to fishing potential in September! Go after Rockfish, Tuna, Lingcod, King Salmon, or Striped Bass and Sturgeon. If it’s too hard to pick, spend a couple of days on the water and do both.

 

October
If you want to get a taste of top-notch offshore fishing, hitting the water in October is your final opportunity for fast and furious action. Tuna and bottom fish are all still present in solid numbers.

 

November
The Chinook Salmon season is officially closed, but that doesn’t mean that fishing is slowing down. Explore the nearshore waters of the bay and target Leopard Shark, Halibut, and Lingcod.

 

December
It can get a bit chilly out there, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting the most out of winter fishing. Sturgeon is the talk of the town, as well as Lingcod and other bottom dwellers. The crabbing season is finally open.
