Halibut

Halibut

Halibut fishing is done off the mouth of the Columbia River in the Pacific Ocean.  The water is blue and wildlife is plentiful, so bring your cameras or cell phones for lots of action.

Our average is about 25 to 40 pounds but we’ve been known to bring fish up to 189 pounds. We use heavy weights to get down to the fish, so bring your muscles!

We have deckhands aboard to bait and help you in catching your fish.

Bottom Fish

Bottom Fish

With the curtailment of the salmon season in the late ’70s, Pacific Salmon Charters Inc. started exploring the possibilities of catching limits of bottom fish.

We found large quantities of bottom fish 18 miles from Ilwaco. Milt found a spot the fish off the coast of Washington with much larger fish and limits of rockfish and lingcod. We will fish this spot more, as the weather will allow us.

The scenery as you travel to the bottom fish grounds is very exciting and beautiful, so bring your camera.

WE OFFER LIVE BAIT FISHING • YOU ARE ONE-ON-ONE WITH THE FISH

There is no set season for TUNA fishing; we fish when the fish arrive, typically in the latter part of July and continuing through September.

We had some wonderful catches last year with some big fish and are expecting great fishing this year.  What great fun for everyone and the excitement of live bait when they hooked into one of those speeding bullets known as tuna.
