Commerical Fishing Delayed Past Christmas

Commercial fishing has been delayed past Christmas. The best bet for holiday crab is to jump on board.
We had excellent pots full of jumbo crab today.
I have room for tomorrow’s trip, the weather looks good for the entire week. We also added a Christmas Eve “crab only trip” room available throughout the entire week.
Final count
230 Dungeness crab (23 limits)
160 rockfish
For reservations

The California Dawn operates out of Berkeley Marina. We are the the only boat in the bay area with a hot galley. If you would like to go fishing with us please call (510) 417-5557. For more information please visit our website
