Our group was really looking forward to salmon fishing in the Pacific Northwest. Unfortunately the salmon weren't biting this year. About halfway through our outing, our guide was able to switch to bottom fishing. This enabled everyone the chance to catch something, even though all of them had to be thrown back. Still a very fun afternoon.

Marty and his crew were incredibly accommodating. We had a scheduling mixup and they took care of us like their own. They run a first class operation.

We have just returned home from Orcas Island where we fished with North Shore Charters. Marty was fantastic helping to set everything up for me, my family and friends. My son Max caught a monster salmon, and had a terrific day. Captain Sean was skilled, knowledgable and very conscientious of us all. We have fished around the world, and would definitely recommend North Shore. We had one boat with small children fishing close to shore - they caught fish and had a blast and we had another boat of seasoned fishermen (and firsherwomen) and all were very happy! Thanks again.

It was our first time fishing on the ocean. I am prone to motion sickness, which I discussed on the way out to fish. Marty turned his little boat around and we went back to get a bigger boat, so that it was less likely that I would get sick. The entire time fishing he was very attentive to our needs, and quick to help out with a snag. I only wish we could've caught more fish, but some days the fish just don't cooperate. We had a wonderful time, and we look forward to getting back out there to beat our top score.

We booked North Shore Charters for a 4 hour fishing excursion. Had a great time. Sean was a great captain and helpful for a family of rookie fishermen/women. We got lots of spotted prawns and a nice ling cod. Just finished a delicious dinner of our bounty. Great day!! Highly recommend.
