Fishing Excursion for Two

Enjoy a day cruising off the Sonoma Coast, chasing whatever fish are biting aboard Jim DeMartini’s 21-foot cruiser, Bonita. On your way out of Bodega Bay you’ll enjoy a breakfast, beverage, and pastries, then head north, or south, depending on what species you intend to target. If salmon are around you can give them a shot. If the salmon are not cooperating your party can find some local reefs and target rock fish and ling cod. Jim will provide all the tackle, bait, beverages (your choice) and lunch. All you need is a one day fishing license and some warm clothes. Along the way you might see porpoise and/or whales and you will definitely see the spectacular Sonoma County Coast from the unique off-shore perspective.

Donated by Jim DeMartini; Law Office of James F. DeMartini; Approximate Value: $300
