Ocean Coach provides one-on-one coaching for ocean anglers and small boat captains. After an initial phone conversation, I will design a custom coaching package just for you. Packages usually consist of about 6 coaching sessions plus email and phone support.

Coaching sessions are by video conference or face-to-face in a dry-land (not on the water) setting. Popular topics include;

  • Crossing the bar

  • Using your chartplotter like a pro

  • Weather forecasting and making the go/no-go decision

  • Becoming a Pacific City doryman

  • Fishing from SUPs, kayaks and rowboats

  • Tackle selection and rigging

  • Finding and catching tuna


For families or regular groups of friends/crew who want to step up their skills together, I offer one- or two-day intensive workshops. Topics are customized for your specific group and include email and phone support for all group members.
