MEET YOUR CAPTAIN
I’ve been fishing the Delta for over thirty years, first with my dad, now with my own kids. For the last twenty years I’ve been passionately chasing the striped bass, learning their behavior, and their patterns. Because I know where and when the fish are my trips are successful. Come spend the day with me and learn or just come with me for a whole lot of fun!
Fishing is an outdoor sport anyone can be equally as good at by spending time on the water and practicing the techniques Captain Jeff will share and show. Get ready to enjoy the challenge of finding the fish and learning how to catch those fish. You will get a feeling of accomplishment while learning patience and the ability to work towards a goal. Fishing is also a great outlet to unwind and unplug from the pressures of life and a way to relax or simply spend time with family, friends, peers and have fun.
DELTA STRIPED BASS FISHING
While the striped bass can be found in the CA Delta System year-ound. Our prime months that we target are March-June for the Spring run and August-December for our Fall/Winter run. These trips typically see lots of action and great for anglers of all ages. Whether it's drifting live bait, spooning, or trolling we do what is needed to put fish into the boat.
We use high-quality Daiwa reels on light tackle Cousins and Lamiglass rods for a better presentation and thrilling experience when fighting the fish.

"Had a great experience today this guy knows his stuff. Slow bite and small tide but still managed to put all of us on fish. Everyone caught plenty of fish and we all took home our limits for the day. The best part of the trip was all the knowledge that was given. Great guy and one hell of a fisherman he really knows his stuff."
"I really can’t say enough about how great of an experience it was having Capt. Jeff take our group of six out on the Delta for a day! We couldn’t stop catching fish and Capt. Jeff made sure everyone was in on the action!"
"Went on 2 straight days of fishing with Capt Jeff and boy what an experience it was. You can forget the usual routine of fishing where you wait hours for that one bite; Capt Jeff knows all the great spots around the river and based on the conditions, he knows how to fish for 'em and where to find 'em. We were landing fish on spoons, live bait, you name it. I didn't know whether to call it "fishing" or just full on "catching"! Thanks again Capt Jeff and we will be out there with you again soon!"
