FISHING TRIPS, RODS, REELS, BAIT, TACKLE AND MORE...
Welcome to Half Moon Bay Sportfishing, located on the coast about 20 miles south of San Francisco, the only stop you have to make for the fishing adventure of a lifetime! We have the supplies you need for a fantastic day on the water aboard our charterboats as well as all the basic gear, bait and tackle you need for a great trip on your own boat or from the shore. We also specialize in whale watching and wildlife trips.
Our staff has unsurpassed knowledge of local waters and fishing techniques for salmon, rockfish, albacore, surf fishing, Dungeness crab and more, constantly updated during the season by the best method of all: on the water experience. Isn't it time you experienced our great coast and all it has to offer?
Salmon size minimum 20 inches August 1! Rockfish, lings open through December
Salmon Season stays open until November 10 with big fish in the mix!
Our fantastic early salmon season made for happy customers and now that the fish have moved in along the beach no more than a mile or two offshore, the action has been scattered up and down the coast. While we don't have to make the run 10 miles offshore to find the kings, now the boats are heading up and down the coast in search of the moving schools of salmon.
The good news is the minimum size limit for fish caught above Pigeon Point goes down to 20 inches from 24. The even better news is that when our boats locate the salmon, size has not been a problem, with high quality Chinooks hitting the deck. The season stays open above Pigeon Point until November 10 and we are sending out salmon trips every week on one of our three boats.
Shallow water rockfish limits the norm! The shallow water rockfishing has been outstanding this season and we expect the bite to be great whenever the weather doesn't kick up its heels. Remember that the season lasts all the way through December this year and that includes lingcod.
Albacore and bluefin...we are keeping an eye on offshore conditions and reports and if the tuna bite comes together, you can be sure we will have trips on tap!
