Born and raised fishing the Northern California coast, Captain Trent Slate has been on the bite for over 30 years. His local fishing knowledge and enthusiasm for the sport is unsurpassed in the industry.
Trent began working at the Loch Lomond bait shop in the 6th grade and by the time he was 14 years old was guiding fishing trips and working as a deckhand for some of the best captains in the business.
After operating his own successful commercial fishing business out of Sausalito for many years and providing all of the fresh fish daily for Whole Foods Markets, he headed north to Shelter Cove, Ca. and opened Shelter Cove Sport Fishing quickly becoming the go-to destination for wild fishing action and daily limits. Trent knows how to find the fish and keep you on top of ’em until your cooler is full and your heading home with limits!
In 2015 Captain Trent took his charter business and moved it back “home” and into his local waters in the San Francisco Bay area. Now called Bite Me Charters, the boat is based out of the Loch Lomond Marina bringing Trent back to fish the waters he grew up in.
The combination of his local knowledge and state of the art electronics allows a definite advantage in finding his clients the hot bite and keeping them on the fish all day. Bite Me Charters has an excellent track record for salmon, bass, sturgeon, rock cod, lingcod, halibut, crab and tuna.
