Welcome to Happy Hooker Sportfishing!

When the talk turns to striped bass in San Francisco Bay or along the beaches, it invariably gravitates to Captain Jim Smith who has developed perhaps the most intimate knowledge of the habits of the striped bass within the bay and along the coast. He has the uncanny ability to predict where and when the fish will show up - during which part of the tide, and upon which rockpile or flat that will set up their ambush.

The Happy Hooker is a Coast Guard certified 56' modern fiberglass boat with a heated cabin, stove, color TV, and galley space for 20 people. It is a wide, stable vessel with plenty of room along the port and starboard side, and it is a particularly child-friendly boat due to high rails and stable ride. Open loads, rod rentals available and whole boat charters for up to 30 angers are also available.
