Phil Glenn, the former captain of the Shellback, is back in the charter business. With his new boat, Bluefin, he is chasing sharks, rays, and California halibut inside Humboldt Bay. This is an easy, fun, and scenic trip for fishers old and young. The calm waters of the bay hold a variety of sharks, including cow sharks (six gill sharks), leopard sharks, and sand sharks (brown smooth hound shark). There are also bat rays and eagle rays. During some years, California halibut crowd into the channels of Humboldt Bay. Phil’s charter taps into a relatively untouched segment of the North Coast’s diverse fishery that brings back memories for local anglers that grew up fishing on the bay.
Most of this bay fishery is year round, barring stormy turbid conditions, and the halibut are a summer and fall thing. For me, fishing with Phil is a treat because of his knowledge and sea stories, both of which he shares with great enthusiasm. For $100 a half day this is a trip not to miss. You will get that much worth in scenery alone.
