Captain Jimmy here! First off, thanks for checking out our website. If you like what you see online, you'll LOVE what you see and experience in person. We provide Bay tours (public and private) and fishing charters. Captain Jimmy Charters is a "6-pack" sport fishing vessel located on the world famous Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco Bay. We can accommodate up to six passengers and carry one deckhand. Every trip is customizable to suit your fishing style, experience and needs. We invite you to come out on the San Francisco Bay and experience what sport fishing is all about. Whether you're a Bay Area native visiting the famous San Francisco Pier 45 on your day off or an out of town tourist -- it's hard to pass by our boat without feeling the pull to do some sportfishing. When we pull underneath the Golden Gate Bridge it will take your breath away. The salty air, seagulls and warm breeze will instill a memory hard to forget. Here's just some of the fish you'll catch: King Salmon California Halibut Rock Cod Striped Bass Sturgeon Leopard Shark Albacore Best Times to Go: Salmon, Halibut, Bass and Rock Cod - Mid-April to Mid-November Sturgeon Leopard Shark and Albacore - Mid-November to Mid-April

We've mastered the methods which should be used for catching very huge steelhead, salmon, shad, and trout on very light tackle. Either fishing out of the jet-powered and custom-built FishRite or the quiet and smooth drift boats, we'll give you satisfying fishing and a truly enjoyable time. As veteran and award-winning outdoor writer, Peter Ottesen wrote about Captain Dave Mierkey: "The tackle looked more suitable for catching a steelhead than a really huge salmon that is packed with enthusiasm. As soon as you catch a salmon, that is the time that the test of skill commences."
After retiring from 40 years of teaching high school and university science, I've spent the past decade teaching FF skills, and guiding clients throughout Northern CA, Utah, SW Montana, Idaho, and Oregon. Of approximately 155 beginners I've had during that time, 4 have developed the skills and interest that permitted them to actually attend FF guide school to become a licensed guide. An unsolicited comment from one client: "I learned more in 4 hours with you than in 5 days with other guides. I believe in helping my clients not just catch fish, but learn the appropriate types of rigging, how to read the water, and the "3 P's" (preparation, position, and presentation) that will enable them to be successful no matter where they go or who they're with.
