Don't go fishing... GO CATCHING!


Pacific Ocean  Halibut

Pacific Ocean Halibut

For the 2020 Halibut fishing season, Marvin’s Guide will be fishing from the ports of Astoria,oregon Depoe Bay Also Tillamook Oregon in the Pacific Ocean. Catching this powerful flatfish is a great adventure. Whether on the North Oregon or Central Oregon coast, these Halibut don’t have a chance. Fishing out of the Astoria/Warrenton/ and Hammond areas on the North Oregon coast, and Garibaldi and Newport locations on the Central coast, Halibut cannot hide.

We start fishing in the beginning of May and can run through well into September. This is all depending on quota caught. The quotas are set by National Marine Fisheries Service. The limits can change every year. Please call for details. Size of Halibut can range from 15 to 100 pounds but average is around 40 pounds.

Travel distance will vary on location and ocean conditions. Fishing depths from 30 feet up to 1200 feet.

Fish processing is available for additional cost at the marina.

Halibut prices are a little different from my fresh water fishing.$225 each.

We can accommodate small to large groups as we use multiple boats.
