Looking forward to some great fishing
The bays are famous for almost 365 days of very good fishing. From Salmon to Halibut, mix in Striped Bass and great big toothy Sharks. An angler can always plan on catching something no matter what time of year.
We're just a little Different
The Predator has one of the most unusual fishing seasons of all boats and guides that fish Northern California. We actually take a majority of the summer off and start fishing in August. During the off months Capt Mike Andrews commits himself to overseas teaching assignments on Merchant Marine training ships.....When he returns in late July you can bet he is more than ready to fish again. We start up right in the middle of all the best fishing the bays can offer.
Break out the Heavy Tackle
Late summer is when big shark start to prowl the bay waters. We will be targeting the two most popular shark in the bays...Leopard Shark and huge Sven Gill Shark. Not only are these fish famous for exhausing battles...they are excellent eating fish. For anglers waning to keep their catch, we prepare the fish so its ready for the grill.
Each year Halibut tease bay area anglers. Some years the fishing is great....and others are just plain challenging. If 2017 turns out to be an excellent year to target the big flat fish. We will offer Halibut fishing on our our trips.
Striped Bass.....The summer months are a graet time to fish for bass. And the action can be wild. We use live anchovies an light tackle to target the school fish. The runs come and go so we usually combine the shark trips with some bass fish...its our most popular combo trip.
Fishing Grounds.....Typically we start catching fish in the lower ends of San Pablo bay. The fishing grounds extend into the central bay and even under the Golden Gate Bridge.
Paul's big fish!..........Gotta love sturgeon
This year we will be specializing with small group fishing trips from 6 to 10 anglers .....if you have a smaller group and want the pleasure of a whole boat for just your party...we're perfect!
