Our first trip to Alaska must include a halibut fishing trip. I was not thrilled but my husband wanted to, so why not. We researched several places and chose Jimmie Jacks. We did not stay at the lodge, we only fished out of Ninilchik. Prior to our trip we fished for salmon in the Kenai with friends, which was great too. However they were not very encouraging when we told them we were going halibut fishing. it was hard, boring, the boats were dirty, water was rough... I was getting concerned. We met our fishing boat captain Frank and deck hand Rain Man, and things got much better. We were on a trip with 4 other gentleman who were halibut fishing for the first time as well. The boat was named the Unforgiven. I mention that only so you can request Frank and Rain Man for your trip. These 2 men are EXCELLENT at what they do. The boat was clean, well cared for, equipment well maintained. As the only women I was made to feel comfortable right away. Their goal was for us to catch fish and have a good time. We were catching fish by 9am and heading to shore with our limit by 1030am. Not a bad couple of hours. These guys a skilled at what they do, love their job, have a great sense of humor and really make sure you get not only your limit of fish but the best fish you want to catch. I cant say enough good things about Jimmie Jacks and most importantly Frank and Rain Man. We had a great experience and would do it again!!! .
