Departing out of Westport, WA, our custom designed 29’ Defiance Guadalupe “Reel Tight” offers us a unique opportunity to get to the tuna grounds quickly, and with just 6 anglers per boat. This means you can experience a Westport Tuna Fishing Charter all in a 12 hour trip!
Departing at “gray” (just before sunrise) our run-time to the bluewater takes about 2 hours. We then chase tuna for about 8 hours, before we make our run back to Westport. Because of the speed of which we get to the tuna fishing grounds and back, we can also offer salmon charters or bottom fishing on the same trip. Match all of that up with only 6 anglers per trip and you may have the Westport tuna fishing trip of a lifetime!
We specialize in live bait Westport Tuna Fishing!
“My passion for fishing is being a part of others catching fish”
For over a decade, Washington fishing guide and charter captain Mark Coleman has had great success in pursuing, catching, and teaching others the key techniques to hooking trophy fish. As a USCG Licensed Captain, Mark Coleman has put his years of fishing experience and knowledge into mastering the prolific Salmon, Steelhead, Tuna, Sturgeon, Lingcod, and Halibut fisheries of Western Washington, and Alaska. Our exclusive charter permits allows us to offer both freshwater and saltwater fishing charters. Mark has also guided a number of seasons in Bristol Bay, Alaska on the world famous Nushagak River and Togiak River systems.
I own and operate a 29’ Ocean Pilothouse boat, a Jet Sled, and a Drift Boat throughout the year in Washington State.
From fishing with others and teaching myself I learned nearly all aspects of fishing in rivers, tidewaters and ocean. Some of those techniques include: Side Drifting, Float Fishing, Back Bouncing, Back-trolling, Pulling Bait, Trolling Spinners/Herring, live bait fishing, Jigging, and Hover Fishing. I also have over two decades of experience in saltwater fishing. I successfully charter for albacore Tuna and Salmon, run downriggers, and mooch for Salmon and bottom fish.
With my documented time on the water, and schooling I currently hold a 50 Ton Master upon Near Coastal waters License from the United States Coast Guard. This allows me to safely run power driven vessels for hire on all Federally Navigable Waters. I’m also First Aid/CPR Certified, and insured, and always run my trips with safety in mind.
