    What a great day of fishing. Set out to catch sharks and boy did we catch sharks. We ended up landing 30+ sharks in a half day. Biggest was a 52" leopard shark. The captain and first mate were professional, friendly and patient with the kids. I would definitely schedule another trip with these guys.

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
