Captain
Ron Koyasako

Member since July 2018 San Francisco, United States
Background
Fishing has always been my passion. I started Trout fishing at 2 years old, and charter boat fishing at 5 years old. I worked on charter boats for 18 years before becoming a captain. I have sportfished and commercially fished all my adult life. I enjoy seeing the thrill of a new person catching their first fish and anglers catching their personal best. My favorite species of fish to catch is Striped Bass. I fish for them year around.
Techniques
Trolling, drifting, mooching, and flylining live bait . We will adapt to current conditions and fish the most productive technique to get the most fish on your lines.
