Great Captain

Great time, caught fish in spite of high winds. Will use this service again. Rodney went above and beyond to make sure my dad and I had a good time. Life time memories were made. Of course the big one got away 😎

Had an amazing time

My husband and 12 year old son went out with Rodney in October and had an amazing time. Rodney was very hands-on and helpful, but they both took an active role in the catch. They brought home a lot of delicious cod which we cooked up and enjoyed. Highly recommend a charter with Rodney!

Limits all the way around!

Beautiful day out on the water the unassuming and very skilled skipper, Rodney. Rodney quietly helped us to our limits. He moved the boat often to stay on top of the fish and it worked beautifully. Rodney also filleted the fish quickly and efficiently. My family highly recommends Rodney and his Santa Cruz Coastal Charters.

5 stars

What a wonderful family fishing day on the Salmon Streaker with Captain Rodney Armstrong on Santa Cruz Coastal Charters. We caught our limit and Captain Rodney cleaned, fileted and packed up our catch in an amazingly swift fashion. My granddaughter now has a new nickname thanks to Rodney. Phoenix the fish magnet. Don’t miss an opportunity of a life time … 5 stars for this Captain and the fishing trip he took us on. Memories….we will most definitely be back next Salmon run.

Great Captain! Good times.

Rodney is a great guy and knows the local waters in and out. You can tell he is liked and has a good repoire with his fellow fisherman – which tells me a lot. My 3 buddies and I had a great time out on his boat. Looking forward to the next trip!

Saved the day! Father Son birthday adventure!!

I had booked with another charter for my son’s birthday and they cancelled our booking due to not enough passengers. Rodney came through big time! He was willing to take just my son and I out for a half day for just a bit more than the other charter. He drove out to “one of his spots” and we dropped lines. My son locked into a fish within 30 seconds! Biggest fish of the day. We kept at it and we had our limit of rock fish by 9:00. More fish than I have ever caught in a day, let alone a 3 hour period. Clearly Rodney knows his stuff. He was great with my son (11) and made sure we were on fish the whole time. Rather than call it a day after we had our limit, he continued to fish (he obviously loves to fish). We moved on looking for Halibut. We caught a ling god and a halibut before it was time to head in. This guy is great!! I have to say that booking the boat for the two of us was such a good choice. Father son experience we won’t soon forget. I can’t recommend Rodney and Coastal Charters enough. If you are reading reviews STOP!, go with these guys, you won’t be disappointed.

Great Experience

Rodney took my 14 years old son and me out for the day. We both had a great experience. He kept us on top of fish all day. Our freezer is now stocked with more fish then we know what to do with, but he did give us some good ideas on different ways to cook it up. I would recommend Santa Cruz Coastal Characters to anyone who is interested and we will be going back out sooner then later with him. Thank you so much for the experience.

Great Day - Great Fishing

My three buddies and I went out with Rodney and had a great time. He’s very knowledgeable and we could tell we were in good hands. We caught 51 rock fish and 1 ling cod. He knew where to go and we were catching fish nearly non-stop. After, we had lunch while he cleaned and bagged everything for us. I highly recommend.

A skipper with a recipe

Rodney not only put us all on the lings and big reds (we were done in an hour and s half) he also gave up the best secret ling cod recipe any of us have ever tried After almost fifty years of local fishing (and eating )i have to say Rodney is top notch! Book a trip, you will love it!
