Awesome Capitan who knows how to FISH. Boat was great had a great trip catching and got some meat to enjoy. Will be booking another trip soon. A+
Great day on the River
We had a great day with Colby. He knew the areas and does a great job with the fishing and making the trip enjoyable. We caught some good size Sturgeon and lots of them. Their boats and equipment are spotless and in excellent condition Would love to go with them again.
Awesome fishing trip
We had a great sturgeon fishing trip with Captain Larry. He took the four of us out in what was less than perfect conditions and we had a blast !! We caught 15+ sturgeon between us. He was very easy going and assisted us as needed. Definitely recommend him for sturgeon fishing - he puts you on top of the fish for sure. Really fun experience for all of us 🐠
Fall Kings and Cohos
2 great fun days with the best guide service in Portland OR - one day at the coast with Larry and one day Portland metro with Colby. Larry had us dialed in for Cohos at the coast (with some crabbing too) and Colby had us limits of Chinooks in 2 hours in Portland. Knowledgeable, skilled guides with great boats and equipment who can put you on fish and make you feel at home. Have been coming back for over 10 years and never disappointed!!!
The company you want to go with!!
We booked the entire boat with HOOK'EM UP Guide Service. From the beginning, Larry was always quick in responding and answering all of my questions. When you're boating with a 97 year old, there were many questions and he was able to answer them all and help us plan for the unknown. Although I dealt with Larry initially, we were going to be going out with his son Colby. We were told by locals that Colby was really young, but smart. They referred to him as "The Kid!" We went out and noticed right away that there were probably about 100 boats out on the water. Colby was great in giving us the simple lessons we needed to know and made us feel comfortable in his hands. Fishing was very slow in the early morning with no one really seeing any bites for a while. However, what made me respect "The Kid" during this time, was he was constantly trying different things, different areas and calling people he knew to see if they were having any activity. It was clear that he was trying his absolute best to find the fish for us. When we got our first fish on, he was on the move helping the person with the line while also getting the rest of us to do what needed to be done. We caught 4 large salmon (had to release one due to it being under the limit) and we had a wonderful time. Colby was smart, respectful, fun to hang out with, a hard worker, and a down right good guy. It was clear he was going to do whatever he could to give us a good time and to land some fish. And even after we landed a fish he was quick to get our lines back in the water to try and catch as much as we could. He kept our lines out in the water up to the second we had to head back to shore. We had a wonderful time and a great experience on our first time Salmon fishing thanks to Colby!! I will definitely send everyone I know that wants to have the best experience in Oregon to HOOK'Em Up with Colby and Larry!! Mahalo Colby!!
