    My two children and I went on a 1/2 day shark fishing trip with Captain Joe. We had a blast and caught leopard sharks and sand shark’s. Joe was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. This was one of our best memories from our trip to San Francisco. Would highly recommend this company and doing this. We will definitely be back!

    Took my adult son on a 1/2 day fishing trip- the day started off with us getting caught in traffic on the Altamont Pass. I called Captain Steve and he was very reassuring and understanding (as was the rest of the fishing party) when we arrived at around 6:30a instead of 6:00a. He even kept us all out fishing longer to "make up the time we lost" as all of us wanted to keep fishing. I had the first "fish on" for the day, but lost the bass during my attempt to reel it in. I later brought in a halibut, but it was 1/2 inch too small! It was amazing to me how the captain and crew could estimate fish sizes to within a 1/4 inch! They were totally ethical in returning anything under 22 inches to the sea! The other fishing party ended up catching several halibut, and my son landed (4), two of which were keepers. At the end of the day, both families left with pounds of fresh halibut which were fileted beautifully by Captain Steve, right on the boat! The entire experience was wonderful, and I can't wait to do it again. Next time, I hope to bring the rest of my children and adult grandchildren! I also want some of my friends to come experience this- if they are willing! I highly recommend Flash Sport Fishing Charters and especially Captain Stave who is funny, hospitable, knowledgeable and gracious to all! The boat is great, and the crew are amazing!

    I recently booked a trip with Captain Steve, for Halibut and Stripers. We did the 1/2 trip. It was a fantastic event. All I can say is WOW!! such a wonderful fleet of boats. Every thing was Super Clean and every detail was touched. From the fresh coffee to the great instructions, Every part of the experience was attended too. Captain Steve's boat was one of the fastest boats in the fleet, we were always first boat as we changed locations. The Gear was amazing all of the rods are custom made and in great shape. The reals were top of the line!!, nothing ever had any issues. The deck hands were always one step ahead of the clients. from untangling, baiting hooks, and helping with fish, They never skipped a beat. The Fishing was on Fire,Everyone caught fish.(The old saying is we all go fishing but not everyone catches fish, if teh bite is on you will not go wrong) I had to jump in and help my partner for she was getting tired of cranking in fish!! LOL As we said thank you, with our cleaned bags of fish in hand, We were happy to add a big tip for the deck hand. As we took some time to walk around the other boats,to see the other fleet. we noticed other party boats all looked a few steps behind Flash 1 & 2 as the other Captains were heading home I noticed that the staff of Flash 1 & 2 were taking the extra time to Clean every part of there boats, maintain there engines and made sure that the next group will get the same attention that we got. Thanks Captain Steve & Joe!! Dan & Kim Walnut Creek, CA

    I traveled from Minnesota to Marina Dunes to visit my son and his family. While there we decided to go sturgeon fishing. We found Flash Sport Fishing Charters and Capt Steve. With his years of experience fishing the San Francisco Bay area, gave my son and I one of the best fishing experience ever! I landed a 59 and 3/4 inch sturgeon and my son landed a 44" sturgeon. We landed a couple more and missed chances at others. Thanks to Capt Steve this was a fishing trip I will cherish forever. Thank you Capt Steve!

Flash Is the best!
Capt Steve is a Captain’s Captain. His knowledge of the bays and fishing are second to none, and any Captains who he has on his boats are the beneficiaries of his knowledge. His equipment is first class all the way! Whether you are a rookie or experienced fisherman it is always a great time on FLASH 1 or FLASH 2! I have fished with Capt Steve for 20+ years and I highly recommend him!

Great trip!!
I took my wife, daughter, son-in-law, and twin 11 yr grandaughters on Flash I out of Martinez on Mar 19. We met Capt.Steve and soon to be Capt.Joe at the dock and left promptly to try for some sturgeon. We landed two sturgeon, not keepers, and two striped bass. My wife got her first fish ever with one of the sturgeons and Capt.Joe was very helpful in helping her to land it. The twins landed a nice bass as did my wife. My son-in-law landed his first sturgeon. The trip went very smoothly and all had a great time. Capt.Steve is very knowledgeable about the bay and both he and Capt.Joe worked well with the kids and my wife in landing their fish. Next up, Flash II in SF Bay! thanks much
