As an ocean novice, this was great fun. We caught limits pretty easily and had fun bycatch to reel in also.

Fishing in the bay can be both challenging and enjoyable, as well as very rewarding, Even in the heat of the summer, wear lots of layers, it can be 100 degrees in nearby cities but downright cold out on the water, but it can also get hot if the wind dies down and there are no clouds. Best part, it’s like your taking a tour of the local sights and scenes but having a line in the water, you might as well be fishing while checking out Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge!

Get up a little earlier to park in a secure spot in Richmond as opposed to worrying in SF

Fishing in the morning in the bay, you have very calm waters, one of my sons get sick easily and this wasn’t a problem, you have a lot of bottom feeder fish here so you can be successful with weighting and drop to the bottom. No experience needed for casting. Very good sized catch in the area.

We went out when the tides were making it very challenging to catch halibut. Other boats we were hearing had zero catches for the day but Captain Justin and Joe were able to still get us MANY catches - each person left with 2 above average size halibut.

It’s one of the best fisheries in the world and there are hundreds of miles of water to explore. Getting a guide like Frank is a great way to get started.

Get out there and do it. Some days you catch a ton of fish, some days just a few. But we have always had a great time doing it.

Plan for all possible weather conditions. Wear layers as the wind picks up in the afternoon. Sunglasses and a neck gator are a must. Wear waterproof or rubber shoes. Your feet will get wet at some point.

Not as good fishing conditions as other months, but you can still catch fish. We weren’t able to catch any fish from the dock on Bethel Island where we were staying but much of that was limited by stormy weather. On a bass charter we were able to catch 1 largemouth bass and 1 striped bass. In February fishing is OK but not as good as spring and summer.

A nice captain and a well run boat BUT the captain is a chain smoker and in the confines of the forward cabin we found that a MAJOR problem.
