Captain
Chris Hoag

Member since March 2017 Edmonds, United States
Background
Captain Chris Hoag started fishing out on a small boat with his dad when he was a young man. He got to know the local charter captains and discovered he was doing just as well as if not better than most of them, so they suggested he get into the business. He fished commercially during the summers while at college, and once certified he started running charters targeting the awesome food fish found in the Puget Sound. He has never looked back since and loves every day he is out on the water.
Techniques
Down rigger trolling for salmon. Lite to medium tackle jigging for Flounder and ling cod.

Salmon fishing was a success!

Chris is a honest guy that will take you to the fish. He won’t promise fish, as any good fisherman should, but he delivered....

This was so much fun! I took my son as a birthday gift. It was end of the season so we weren’t expecting much, but thanks...
