Todds Extreme Fishing
Fishing the Washington’s Coast and Rivers
Capt. Todd Girtz (Lingcod Todd)
We fish where the fish are!
Neah Bay, LaPush, Westport, Ilwaco and Washington Rivers
My 26 foot North River Seahawk can be trailered to any of the coastal ports, this allows us to take advantage of the best fishing Washington has to offer at all times. With the changing seasons and rules it is important to be able to be moble and my boat allows us to be just that.
We maximize our fishing time by using electric reels when fishing the deep water:
Daiwa Tamacombull 750 (standard reels can be used if you prefer)

I love fishing! Rivers, lakes, oceans, ponds and small streams I love fishing all of them I enjoy catching everything from the smallest fish to the biggest but if it were up to me the more and the bigger the better I am always looking to learn more when it comes to fishing and I find by helping others catch fish it often helps me catch more fish.
I live near Sumner Washington and have lived in the Sumner area most of my life. I started fishing with my dad when I was very young and have never stopped.
When I am not guiding customers I am out fishing with friends and exploring new fisheries, I enjoy fishing new places very much. If you have been on a great fishing trip I would love to hear about it! I am always looking for new places to fish.
I love to fish and I love to see others catch fish
I enjoy every second on the water and am not looking to get a quick limit and take you back to the dock. I will not force you to keep the first fish you catch like other captions do. I will put 100% of my effort into trying to catch you the biggest and most fish we can.
If you are the type of person that likes to get a quick limit of fish and head to the dock you do not want to book with me.
As long as there is something left to fish for we will continue to fish
If we catch our halibut we will fish for lingcod, if we get our cod we can fish for black cod(sable fish) true cod or rock fish.
