River fishing:

fishing in alumaweld boats2016 Alumaweld Columbia 26.5 feet long...AKA "Turbos Palace".

This boat was custom built for me in 2015. The boat is powered by a 250 hp Mercury Verado outboard, Yamaha kicker and features a Tr1 Autopilot and Lowrance plotter. The boat comfortably seats 6 anglers and crew yet still allows for optimal fishing space. USCG required safety gear is on board and is kept in pristine operating condition. The boat is built so it can be used in a jet or prop configuration which gives greater versatility on where she can fish.

Ocean fishing:

2011 30 foot custom built fiberglass "offshore style" boat… AKA Pacific Addiction.

The boat is powered by twin 300 hp Suzuki outboards and equipped with Simrad electronics, a Flir unit for night vision and a 120 gallon "live bait tank" built specifically for tuna fishing. The fish holds can easily keep 40 tuna (or more depending on size) and still has plenty of room for salt ice to make sure your catch is kept extremely cold. The boat fishes very well, especially for tuna since the boat is truly a full "fish around" style boat. You can fish 360 degrees around the boat yet still get inside the pilot house out of the weather. I have electric downriggers for salmon fishing as well as electric reels for all of our deep water halibut or cod fishing trips. The boat is fully equipped with all USCG required safety gear to include an 8 man Solas raft, Epirb, dual vhf radios, DSC, AIS, commercial flare kit and a satellite phone. The boat is also equipped with a marine head, microwave and satellite radio for music.


I use only handpicked rods and reels. Each rod is custom built specifically for each style of fishing. Light tackle ensures you get the best fishing experience possible.


100 % custom built using only Rainshadow blanks and Alps/Forecast parts.



Varies depending on the type of fish we’re after. There are plenty of tackle options on board to adapt to ever changing conditions.

All passengers and crew are required to wear inflatable lifejackets at all times on either boat. Mustang lifejackets are provided for your safety and comfort.
