I have not personally been halibut fishing with Bob but I have sent many clients to fish with him as part of their fishing package. (I get seasick and whine alot). I ask EVERY client about their experience after they have fished with other guides I have scheduled them with. I have yet to get as much as a hint... More

My husband and son each caught the limit of 2 for each. He said halibut was easy to catch,could do 1/2 day. At the end of the day you can have them freeze it and ship home. Just make sure at the dock to state if you want the salmon smoked because we did it when we got to their... More

We booked a 3/4 day Halibut trip with Bob's Charters. They had a full boat and Captain John and his deck hands gave 100% to ensure that we all got our quota. Even those who were feeling a sea sick were encouraged to come out and fish (with the assistance of the crew) once the waters became more calm. They... More

Going halibut fishing was a major "bucket list" item for me!! Unfortunately, I recently had my left leg amputated and am still in a wheelchair. My wife and I decided to go on the trip. We went out on the "Nauti Lady" with Captain John and crew. I was shocked at the level of customer service they provided during the... More

We had a beautiful day for a 3/4 day trip on Bob's Trophy Charters. The captain put the boat on some fish nearly as soon as we stopped. Unfortunately nothing we or others were catching that day (on our trip) were too big, but I don't fault them for that. There were as many fish as you wanted to catch,... More

We did a half day halibut charter and had a riot. They brought us to a spot that produced one fish right after another. Being completely inexperienced with deep sea fishing, Captain John took the time to show many of us how to make sure that your bait was on the bottom and how to hook a fish. After that,... More

Sorry to tinge my review with lousy weather...rain, cloudy & cold even in August. But Captain John and the deck mates Jacob & Joshua were first rate! Everyone caught their quota.

The captains that we had for the 3 days were great to work with as well as their mates. The scenery was fantastic to see with lots of wild live. Caught lots of fish in the 3 days. Got over 100 lbs for 4 people.
