Fishing license (required for anglers 16+ years), rod/reel, tackle, cash for fish cleaning services and/or gratuity for your crew. Parking is always FREE! Snacks, Drinks, and other foods and beverages are encouraged to bring as well. Alcohol is allowed but NO GLASS policy is STRICT on ALL our boats.
What if we don't have a Fishing rod or Tackle?
Fish Emeryville has custom tackle kits designed by the Captains available for purchase & quality fishing rods/reels for rent. Please call the landing for pricing and availability. Pre-Order and they will be on board your boat the morning of your trip!
Are children welcome?
If you think your child is ready, then they're welcome with parental/guardian supervision. Half day trips are a great way to introduce new and young anglers to a day of fishing.
Is there a galley available onboard?
No, please bring lunch/beverages and snacks. Cans only, no Glass. (Shore side snacks available at the landing). The Oakland Anglers 2 is the ONLY boat with a chef for breakfast and lunch (on MOST trips*)
What should I wear?
Dress in layers, jeans/windbreakers, hats/beanies, gloves, rubber boots or extra socks if wearing sneakers.
What if I get sea-sick?
We recommend Bonine for sea-sickness. Take 1 tablet the night before your trip and another tablet morning of your trip on an empty stomach. You can also decrease the risk of getting sea-sick by sitting outside the cabin and drinking lots of water.
What happens if we don't catch any fish? Can you guarantee we will catch fish?
We usually catch fish but we do not guarantee that we will catch any fish. Our boats will do their very best to bring you home with something!
