Bottom fish & Lingcod Charters

Bottom fish & Lingcod Charters

The southern Oregon coastline is known by many as one of the best areas to fish for lingcod and bottom fish on the west coast. We are fortunate enough to have easy access to these large and very tasty fish. Catches include the many species found on the west coast, including, when in season cabezon.

We have many areas to fish from the north and the south of the harbor. The are many deep and shallow reefs within close proximity to target these fish around our rocky coastline. In the springtime, the large lingcod will move into the shallow waters to spawn, while fishing for lings and rockfish are available throughout the year.

These fish provide some of the best table fare. They are delicious with a firm white flesh that can be prepared a number of different ways, some of which include fish tacos, beer-battered, fried for fish and chips and baked.  Come and Enjoy!

All bait and tackle are provided, we use a light tackle method for fishing shallow areas down to 125+ feet in depth. Your fish will be well cared for and filleted or if you prefer left whole to bake.

We operate a 27 foot “Kingfisher Coastal Express” named the ‘Bout Time, she is comfortable, fast and safe, equipped with all the bells and whistles designed to get you on the fish in short order. We can accommodate up to 6 anglers.

What Our Clients are Saying

My husband Stan spent an absolutely glorious day yesterday with Rich Signorello fishing the Chetco bay. Rich’s many years of experience fishing (and catching!) enhances the time well-spent trolling the bay, and put a huge smile on Stan’s face as he reeled in a beautiful Chinook! Thank you so much, Captain Rich! We will be back to fish with you, again and again!

I took a guided fishing trip with Rich Signorello on Saturday October 12 2019, at 730 am. Rich Showed up on time with his son (deckhand) and ready to fish. Rich greeted me with a positive attitude and was extremely nice the whole trip. Rich and his son are very professional with their services and are very knowledgeable about fishing. Rich knew how to read the river very well and we were on the fish all day long. I was able to catch two salmon in the short amount of time that we were on the water and Rich netted my fish with ease. Rich and his son did all the work and all I had to do was focus on not missing a bite. When the fishing trip was over, Rich cleaned and filleted my fish and put the fillets in bags for me. This was a great experience and I would highly recommended Rich’s fishing guide services to anyone of any level of fishing ability.  You will definitely learn a thing or two from this guy and he was fun to hang out with. I will definitely be using Rich’s guide services again.

[Rich] knows and loves the sport and wants to share the excitement and fun with others.  Great experience for a first timer.  Enjoyable experience all around.  I walked away with a nice salmon for dinner 😊

We went out at a time when the tides were changing, so it took about an hour to find a place where the fish were biting. However, during that time, both Rich and Matt demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the local area and knowing where to look (only taking us a couple of stops to find the fish). Even before the fish started to bite, the trip was very entertaining. When the fish did start biting, it was one after another until we had caught our limit on rock fish. Rich and Matt were awesome guides and really fun to hang out with. They were also well prepared with food, drinks, and motion sickness medicine (if needed). I had a lot of fun with them and can’t wait to go out again. Hopefully next time we can head after salmon in the deeper water. Thank you again for a great time and all of the fish!
