Description: Guided salmon and bottom fishing charter trips in the beautiful San Juan...
Guided salmon and bottom fishing charter trips in the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State. There is no way to describe the excitement of putting folks on their first king salmon, giant lingcod, or huge halibut. The smile is from ear to ear, you can almost see their hearts pounding through their chests, and their hands shake for an hour afterward in response to the adrenaline. The stories get told, and the memories last a life time.

This is the second year with Highliner Charters. In 2014, we caught king salmon. This year we caught our limit of "pinks". We went out two days and on the first day trip, we saw several whales. We fished just off San Juan Island. The staff is courteous and helpful throughout the day. Tyler is a great captain and did... More

It was our first time to Anacortes and my wife and I wanted to go fishing while in town. We read Captain Brett Rossen' story and experience with great interest and just knew his was the Charter to call. We were fortunate that there had been a cancellation because he does book up months in advance. So in less than... More

This was my first time salmon fishing. What a great experience. Captain Brett was great. Very helpful and patient. His focus all afternoon was to get fish in the boat. Experience was great from initial phone call to the end of the day. Would highly recommend Highliner Charters. Guaranteed you will not be disappointed. Can't wait to get back and... More

My dad is 81 years old and is having some health problems. Brett's team was incredibly kind and helpful with my dad in helping him get... More

This is the second time our group of four has gone out fishing with Capt. Brett. The first time was for winter blackmouth salmon last winter, today for summer chinook and pinks. Brett is a very experienced guide who know the waters around Anacortes like his own backyard. He also is very generous in sharing his knowledge explaining the where's... More
