Great Day Fishing Jun 6, 2019

Captain Charlie did a great job and worked hard to put us on some great fish. We had an awesome day and will be definitely going out again with the Flash.

Forrest and Brittany – Mar 2, 2020

We went with a group of six for a full day with Captain Steve and deck hand Justin so we were in good company! These guys are experts. The bite started a little late and Captain Steve was kind enough to extend the time on the water and the results came with some good sturgeon!!!! And even a double hook up! Captain Steve cooked us some moose burgers and had snacks and coffee ready to go! Captain Steve and Justin are very nice people. Played good music, relaxed and overall an exceptional time spent fishing! If you’re even thinking about this trip, book it now!!!

Best Captain and Crew Duo!! Excellent

Captain Steve and Deck Hand John made our experience one to remember! They were kind, full of knowledge and funny! We had sharks biting within minutes of stopping and continued that way through the duration of our trip. We caught many leopard and sand sharks. The half day trip went by so quickly we all wished we would have booked the full day. The entire family had a great time! Captain Steve and John were great with our boys! Highly recommend and will be back if we are ever in the area again!

Great time. First time salmon fishing for brother and nephew. Every fish hooked ended up in boat except for the one that got nailed by a sea lion. We ended up with limits. Smallest fish was 26 inches. Biggest about 18 lbs. Crew was great.

It was a nice day on the water, the boat was clean, the deck-hand was a good guy, tried to do all he could to make it a great day...problem was that there was no fish. We literally sat in the same spot for 12 hours, not even a bite. I fish in Florida a c...

Hi phillip, Sturgeon are tough. I fish all year long and they are the toughest fish to bag. That is why we call fishing for sturgeon trophy fishing. They also require the most patients. Unlike other fish were we are moving and hunting them down. Now were...

Reviewer Hidden
Great experience and knowledgeable captain. Catching sharks was a blast.

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
