Reviews of Fishing in Halibut Fishing in San Francisco

"Full Day Trip "

Mariah Marabuto fished with SF Bay Sportfishing San Francisco on September 16, 2020

What a great day on the Andrea K to celebrate my birthday. Captain Sean and deckhand Gavin were very helpful and did all that they could to get us into the fish. We started in the bay and they switched it up running outside the gate to the North Bar for Halibut since the weather held out. We caught some really nice fish and had a great time. I highly recommend fishing with these folks!

"Half Day trip with Captain Sean"

Michael Weibel fished with SF Bay Sportfishing San Francisco on August 22, 2020

We went out for a half day for my sons 5th birthday. The guys couldn’t have been more accommodating! We had an awesome day out, 11 Halibut and two stripers. Will definitely be back for many more trips!

"Half day with Captain Ron and Hunter "

Donna Levine fished with Nautilus Excursions on July 28, 2019

There were eight in our group some of which had never fished let alone been in a boat in the San Francisco Bay. We therefore chose to stay within the bay even though our probability of catching more and larger fish was reduced. This was a great choice. We caught in excess of 50 Halibut of which 14 were of legal size to keep. The crew had our full interests in mind as we fished and sight saw.

"Salmon fishing w David"

Michael Gonzales fished with Warrior Poet Sportfishing on July 3, 2018

Capt David took us out to a spot where we all caught our limits of salmon then we went out drifting for Halibut for the remainder of the trip. David seems very knowledgable, he set up and cast all the poles and when a pole was struck we fought and reeled in our own fish. I observed and learned a lot from him
