If you are a serious sports fisherman or are looking to take fish home please choose a different fishing charter. NOAA and other agencies will be using our data in upcoming fish survey reports. Most of our fishing will be focused on the Spiny Dogfish. This small shark is usually 2-3 maybe even 4 feet long and tons of fun to catch. Also did you know, it takes these shark 25-30 year to reproduce! They are what we call a late maturing fish.

Our trips are 3-4 hours long depending on the fishing and the weather. We try to fish in areas where we will have the least amount of environmental damage on recovering fish species. Such areas include voluntary fish reserves, bottom depths below 120ft, and very rocky areas with lots of current.

* a fishing license can be purchased in Eastsound at the sporting good store located next door to rays pharmacy.
