John Badger

Member since December 2019 Richmond, United States
Background
I grew up in Rodeo, CA, and started commercial Halibut fishing in the 80s. I wanted to expand my business by taking other people fishing. Even though I charge people to fish, a genuine smile is the best tip for me and my crew! If I can make you happy our job is complete. I pride myself in being successful and knowledgeable about all the species I fish for. My specialties are Halibut trolling, Halibut drifting with live bait, and Salmon trolling with a sinker release, as well as Seabass, Rock Cod, and Sturgeon fishing.
