About Meanwhile Charters & Captain Randy
Captain Randy Kane started Meanwhile Charters after retiring as an Emergency Manager and earlier as a police lieutenant. He has enjoyed fishing for decades, and now seeks to share his enthusiasm with others. Some of his earliest memories are fishing with his family. From small bullheads in Bigstone Lake, Minnesota, to trout in North Fork Reservoir in Oregon, Randy was brought up to enjoy fishing. Randy made his first ocean trips in a North River 22′ Seahawk fishing for salmon, halibut and tuna. The Seahawk was a great boat and was trailered to Port Alberni, Vancouver Island, B.C. to enjoy the scenery and fishing. Randy suffered from the 4 footitis and so bought a comfortable ocean boat, a 26′ Seaswirl Striper. The Striper served well and traveled to Vancouver Island, B.C to fish from Port Hardy. Randy used the Striper around Oregon and Washington as it trailered well. He also secured moorage at Ilwaco, Washington for two years. That afforded Randy the opportunity to learn the Columbia River bar and the large river estuary. Once again Randy was bitten by the boaters 4 footitis disease. The current boat is a 30′ Grady White Marlin walk around. The Grady White is now moored in Garibaldi, Oregon.
After years of experience and more trips than he can count, Randy is ready to charter your next deep sea fishing adventure. Randy is committed to providing an excellent experience on the ocean. Capt. Kane is a licensed guide in Oregon and by the Coast Guard as an Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel (OUPV 6 pack). His past boats are featured on this page.

“The greatest feeling is watching the face of someone that has never caught a tuna during that first fast run.” Randy Kane
