My 69 year mother and I went out fishing with Jon. We caught the biggest halibut that we've ever caught and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a great day and will never forget it!

Capt. Jed recently took us from Seward for a wonderful day of fishing. We all caught out halibut limits, almost our rock fish limits and few ling cod as a bonus. He was a very attentive captain. The fishing gear was in good shape, he kept us baited, and handled the fish we caught. On return he filled the fish... More

We went out on a rainy, choppy day, but it was still one of the highlights of our trip. Capt. Chris and his mate Mason were very helpful and knowledgeable. We each caught 2 halibut (the limit, and that was plenty even though they were fairly small), and a bunch of rockfish and also caught one large lingcod. The boat... More

Two of us went on this charter, back in June. One: we set for hours in one place with no one catching anything, then we all caught small (12 lb) kings and my buddy caught two small Halibut. When we got back, we ran some errands and then picked up our fish. when we got home, we found one King... More

Captain Chris was a great! Put us right on Big Salmon. After a safety review of the vessel - we headed out. Within ten minutes after anchoring we were into some of the best fishing I've ever enjoyed! And fun, I laughed so hard my sides ache, because we were lite on fishermen aboard Captain Chris joined in. He hooked... More

The captain we had was not helpful it seems like he had an attitude the three days we were fishing with him. I thought when go to Alaska u catch big fish that's what we were intisapating on doing the captain of this vessel (CHRIS) to us on a wild goose chase catching little fish.at the end of the day...

Our boat of 16 limited out our 2 small halibut. Then we moved on for salmon and caught nothing...no bites. Capitan John said the fish weren't in yet. But other boats had limited out. The 2nd day we were to go out our boat blew up and the trip was canceled. We did get a full refund. But overall it... More
