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. « less

My 12 year old Step son and I went with Brett last weekend. My step son caught his first salmon on Brett's boat. The experience was great, Brett is top notch. He gave my son a memory I am confident he will remember for his lifetime. Next time I am in the area I will be giving Brett a call.

Brett (the owner) was a top notch guide. We had the best time on his boat and his attitude and personality was great. Very fun guy. He definitely knew his way around those waters and knew what to do and when to do it and he found the fish. We came a long, long way and he made it worth... More

My husband and I went fishing for coho with Captain Brett on Oct 4 and had a spectacular time. I really didn't know what to expect, as we usually fly fish for trout on rivers and small streams, so this was new for me. I was a little nervous with not being familiar with a new technique and gear, but... More

We went out with Brett at the end of September for crabbing and coho fishing. He knew exactly where the best spots were, and because of it we were the last ones in what we affectionately named the "combat fishing zone" under deception pass. Still we were one of the first boats to limit out. At two different points during... More

I recently came up to visit family and my father and I decided we wanted to go out and catch some salmon. We booked a trip with Highliner Charters. We were met in the morning by Tyler who is one of the charter captains. He was a nice young man that was very knowledgeable about the local area. On the... More

We had a 1/2 day charter for our family of five a few weeks ago. We had great weather, and caught our limit. Brett was personable, and knowledgeable - all in all, it was a memorable experience. Jack K

My husband and I took the afternoon fishing trip out of Anacortes, WA, on July 19th. We caught our limit of salmon in less than 3 hours, and fished for bottom fish and went crabbing. Our captain/guide was top-notch, very knowledgable, and friendly. All equipment was state-of-the art. We had an excellent time, returning to the dock at dusk--approximately 6.5... More
