My husband and his brothers and father booked this trip for today. The boat never showed up. My husband walked to the office and was the told the captain didn't want to fish today! They returned some of the $ but not all. When my husband asked about the rest "Bob" said if he didn't get out if his office... More

Booked a six-pack, all day halibut trip with Captain Bob's charter service. Stopped in the day before the scheduled trip to find the engine on our charter ship had "blown up." We were contracted out to another boat, Captain Mark and his "Northern Lights" craft. We were disappointed that we'd be sharing the excursion with ten others, rather than the... More

We had a group of 8 on a Halibut day charter with Captain John and his two deck hands. We saw humpbacks and fished all day, everyone aboard limited with the largest being a 38" Halibut caught in our last hour, beating out 3 guys who were tied with 35" fish. This outing was the hightlight of our 8 day... More

After following the advice of tripadvisor we booked with Bob's Trophy Charters several months in advance for June 30th. Our Captain Mike and Deckhand KT were both outstanding. We had a long haul to get where they wanted to take us fishing. Because of tide and winds the water was extremely choppy. We were given the option to pull back... More

July 4 & 5: We fished 2 days with Bob's and had a great time. Our captains were Danny for an all day salmon fishing charter. And Mark for a combo salmon/halibut charter. Both men were very accommodating and worked hard to help catch our limit. Mark went above and beyond and pulled a fish hook from my hand (... More

This is the third time I have gone out with them on the "Naughty Lady" I'm new to fishing and the captain and deck hands go out of their way to make sure even the novice fisherman has fun. They even offered to take pictures of us with our catch! One of my favorite things is the watching the deck... More

I will not book with this charter again!! This year I have taken 5 different charters for Halibut and Lingcod. I have done this in order to find out which ones do a great job and which ones do a lousy job. I booked this charter in March. I did so based on the information and profiles of boats and... More

We booked a 6 pack charter for halibut. We caught some beautiful small halibut and met our limits. The Office Staff, Deck Hand and Captain were helpful and personable. Overall, the entire "6 pack" was disappointed in the day for reasons that I'm pretty sure were beyond the Captain and Deck Hand's control. We had an OK time and good... More

They need to take the trophy out of their name. Went on a full day charter and only caught 7 chicken halibut and 1 small salmon. My 2 sons and I are Very Disappointed by this company. I gave a 2 stars because the deck hand, she did a tried hard. They failed doing their job.

Our captain and crew were great as well was the fishing. Unfortunately I bought my license on the web and couldn't print it. I was told by a state warden that just having the receipt was fine so I figured no big deal. They didn't tell me they needed my license number before we departed so I thought all was... More

Bob’s Trophy Charters strives to make every trip a fun, safe and compliant experience. In this instance, there was a series of misunderstandings which was guided by misinformation. According to ADF&G website, “licenses must be printed at the time of purchase, the emailed receipt and confirmation is NOT a valid license” and “a person cannot hunt, fish or trap without... More
