Brookings Saltwater Fishing Trips
Please visit our ocean charter web page, www.brookingsfishing.com, to learn more.
Brookings, Oregon, has the reputation of having the safest bar, or ocean crossing, on the Oregon Coast. It's the best place in the state for year-round ocean lingcod and rockfish action, and produces the biggest ocean salmon in the state as well.
Pro guide Andy Martin is one of the few Brookings fishing guides licensed to run both river and saltwater trips. He is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain who grew up fishing the productive waters out of Brookings, and offers year-round saltwater and river charters.
Long before he established himself as a standout Alaska charter captain, Andy earned a reputation of being one of the most successful saltwater anglers out of Brookings, catching lingcod, limits of black rockfish and other species year round. He is an expert at using live bait for lingcod and catching rockfish on light tackle. His seminars on Oregon rockfish and lingcod techniques draw crowds during the sports and outdoor show circuit. Andy now guides and runs charters boats in his hometown of Brookings year round.
Capt. Andy specializes in smaller groups out of Brookings, usually fishing charter with six or less passengers. His boats are fast, clean, comfortable vessels that quickly get from the dock to the fishing grounds. Unlike the larger, slower party boats in Brookings that cram up to 25 people onboard, trips with Wild Rivers Fishing feature personalized service, quality light tackle, and the best fishing areas. We not only focus on getting you limits of lingcod, rockfish and salmon, we work hard to get you quality fish so you can fill your freezer with great-tasting fillets from the Oregon Coast.
Andy is one of the most successful salmon guides on the Southern Oregon Coast, and has developed a reputation for getting his clients into the biggest fish each season, with more than a dozen 50-pound kings under his belt. He also sets crab pots when the season is open.
