My son and I both caught beautiful salmon aboard the "Take Five". Captain Eric provided all the necessary gear and outstanding personalized service which made for a hassle free and enjoyable ocean fishing experience.

There was something for everyone on this trip...sightseeing, marine life viewing, fishing. Porpoises were swimming alongside the boat and so close that we could see their individual markings. Did I mention the sea otter, harbor seals, whales and shark that we saw? And then there was the fishing...salmon, rock fish...I mean, wow. The Captain was very attentive and made sure that we had everything that we needed. Amazing boat, cool Captain. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

You can't go wrong with Capt. Eric and Staff. Booked a trip with a friend, got Capt Mike and Josh (who also is a Capt. ) and not only had a fun day, we also caught a 25+ halibut!!! but even without this catch, Josh and Capt Mike did a great job, professional and friendly + they KNOW what they are doing...great team, experience, will recommend North Bay Charters any day!

I couldn't be happier. They came to my camp spot and picked us up. The Gradey White is in tip top condition. Captain Mike knew where the fish were and to top it all off was a cooler full fish and crab. North Bay Charters is the best!!!

My husband and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary by chartering the 'Take Five' with Captain Eric. Within an hour i caught a 28lb salmon & my husband caught a 26lb salmon. Captain obviously knows his stuff. Boat is clean, as is the bathroom. It was a fun day, great way to celebrate 17 years. And Eric cleans & fillets the fish for you. Bonus!

We took our daughter (33), graandson (10)and granddaughter (14) out with Captain Josh and his Deckhand Logan 10/27/18. Everyone in the group had a great time. They made everyone in the group feel comfortable. Capt Josh and Logan were on it all day. They worked hard to keep the lines in the water every possible minute. They definitely love what they do and and it shows. The boat, The Take Five, may be a bit smaller than some of the other Charters available but that made for a very personal hands-on experience for us. I loved that. We’ve already booked our next excursion for Halibut season next year and can’t wait for another fun day.

I took my wife and son out this past Sunday, September 16, and Captain Merlin showed us the best time on the water on the Take Five. We left port at about 7:13am and he had us on top of the rockfish in about an hour. The action was fast and hot! We limited out in just a couple of hours on rockfish and then Captain Merlin moved to a different spot for ling cod. After catching the first one -- and releasing it due to it being undersized -- the next four came fairly quickly. Captain Merlin put us in the best position to catch a lot of fish, and good sized ones. On the way back to shore, we noticed a whale up ahead, and then two more to our right, and then another breached to our left. Birds were flying all about. The perfect conditions for salmon fishing! Captain Merlin got the gear situated for trolling. It took a while, but finally we got a hit, and it was big! And what a fight! This was my first salmon and Captain Merlin coached me through it like a pro. The closer we got it to the boat, the greater the excitement rose. The Captain measured it at 32.5 inches and estimated it was 22 pounds (felt like 25 to me). This salmon was icing on the cake for what had already been a great day.

This was our first trip with North Bay Charters, but it won't be our last. Thank you Captain Merlin for the 10 bags of salmon, 10 bags of ling cod and 20 bags of other rockfish in my freezer. We'll see you again come next spring/summer! My family had a great time.

Fishing with Josh was fantastic! Me and my aged crew have been fishing out of Bodega Bay for over 30 years. We all agreed, this was our best trip ever. Josh worked especially hard and put us on the fish and was more than accommodating with all our needs. We will not miss the opportunity to come and fish with North Bay Charters again.
