During the fishing season they will be fishing for salmon, rockfish or tuna depending upon regulations. When the fishing action starts and you’ll hear the reel sing as the line peels off with a whopper of a king salmon jumping and tugging against the straining angler…or the biting of a ling cod pulling your line and trying to dive into a hole in a rock on the ocean bottom – well, the excitement is felt all around the deck and everyone cheers in unison when the catch is landed!

If you want fresh fish but Northern California sea fishing trips aren’t for you, often you can purchase fish right off the boats at the dock and from fish markets around Pillar Point Harbor and the Coastside.
