- Welcome -


The Golden Gate Fishermen's Association (GGFA) is all about fishing: the preservation and enhancement of our fisheries, and of course catching fish... the primary target is the San Francisco Bay Area's world-class salmon, plus fantastic Bay and deep sea fishing for halibut, lingcod and rock cod, striped bass, albacore tuna, sharks and even Dungeness crab.

Come out on one of our many fishing boats all over the Central California area from Bodega Bay South to Monterey...  Choose from an open load, private charter of a large boat or a more intimate fishing trip on a smaller "6 pack" charter boat with your personal fishing guide.

Come fishing on one of the GGFA boats to enter the Golden Gate Fishing Derby! A season-long fishing derby to win weekly and monthly prizes, as well as a series of Grand Prizes.



Fishing reservations and the preservation of our fisheries go hand in hand for the GGFA. Each are equally important to our members and the fishing community we serve.
