I just bought a brand new 25' Stabicraft Ultracab. I am looking for some experienced people to go out fishing with me. I moved to Washington last summer and fished in a few places in the sound. I also have a 38' Carver Super Sport that I kept in Alaska for 5 years (It's now docked in Anacortes) fishing all over Sitka, Juneau & Ketchikan. I like fishing anywhere, for anything. The boat is docked at the marina in Everett, but I am open to picking people up at other marinas if that makes it logistically easier.
I would like to do some offshore trips to target tuna and black cod. For the black cod, I have multiple electric reels that easily can get to depths of 750 fathoms.

If interested, please PM me and we can start a dialogue.

Welcome to the hood! We’ve got our boat in POE too. Nice stabicraft. You will really enjoy getting it dialed in.

Curious on the black cod venture. I’d like to figure them out as well. We sounded swarms of them last year targeting halibut and did catch one incidentally. A few charters will target them on deepwater ocean days. They sure are good eating!

you should have no problem finding some competent crew to help you learn our areas and fishing. Does your stabi have a legit bait tank, not a “live well”?

Awesome boat. While fishing by one of these last year in a very large swell, I couldn’t stop watching this boat literally run up/down huge swells with ease. Fishing can be tough in the sound sometimes, so def look to the straits/ocean with that bad boy.

    @StabiCruiser congrats on the walkthrough, it's a sweet rig as well. It was a bitch to put together though.
