Consistency is Key!
We count our lucky stars that the Tradewinds fleet has so many great captains and crew members to help you achieve your goals and get what you came here for and at the very least, have an amazing day out on the ocean.
Bottom Fishing and Crabbing is knocking it out of the park with limits and near limits of rockfish and even crab!
Salmon fishing wasn’t quite on the money today with a dip in retention and action but we won’t give up hope for a better run each day.
We would love to take you out on the beautiful North Pacific ocean to show you what it has to offer. Book your next trip online or over the phone at (541) 765-2345. Quit Wishin’!
