“I am an avid fisherman and have been fishing on the Monterey Bay since I was a child. I have over 15 years of professional fishing experience, deck-handing on other charter boats, commercial fishing on salmon and crab boats, as well as commercial salmon fishing on the Knot Alone for the past 15 years. I am also an avid steel head fisherman and have fished all over California and Oregon. I’ve ran jet boats, rowed many drift boats, and hiked many miles on the rivers. This is my 6th year now having my own charter fishing business, and it has been going great! All of my customers have had wonderful experiences. I love putting people on the fish, especially the kids as I have three of my own that love fishing as well.”

The Knot Alone is a 35′ long 12′ wide Maine Coaster lobster boat, with plenty of fishing room on a spacious deck. We have a large awning for weather protection, and a bathroom on board for extra convenience.
Powered by a 315 horsepower Volvo diesel engine, The Knot Alone runs on top of the line Furuno auto pilot, a Furuno fish finder with 64 mile radar, Furuno GPS, and a Garmin touch screen GPS. Cruising at a comfortable 14 knots, The Knot Alone is among the smoothest and most comfortable in the Monterey Bay area.
