What's included

Charter captain Eli Rico, a professional guide since 1989, will customize the trip based on which areas you want to fish. Up to 10 species are usually caught; some of the most common fish include redfish, tarpon, Spanish mackerel, snook and trout. Take home the fish you catch, as long as they're in season and in regulation. (Fish cleaning is also included with the deal.)

Eli really knows his stuff. He made our trip an unforgettable experience - we did, afterall, catch King Salmon, although we are pretty much beginners. He is really good at what he does and with people. Thank you Eli!

Fishing with Eli is like fishing with a close friend. He's easy going, casual, and extremely knowledgeable about Northwest fisheries.
