I'm likely going to echo so many other reviews of Crackerjack, but here it goes------WOW! One of the most amazing experiences I've had ocean fishing. The captain (Jeff) was informative, helpful, supportive, attentive, and and obviously a Formula I driver in a previous life. He got us to the fishing grounds in around 2.25 hours, and gave the six fishermen the time of their lives.
The fishing was far more enjoyable than what I expected (came home with over 40 pounds of filets), and the men with whom I had the pleasure of fishing (Eric, Jorg, Logan, Matt, and Wayne) were true gentlemen.
The boat limited out on halibut (I was the lone straggler, but finally got my second beast), and we returned to the docks with an 85 pounder, a 65 and 60 pounder, and a bunch of 30-20 pounders.
The Captain is a master. The fishing was spectacular. The experience was unforgettable.
Got to see catches of monster ling cod and sting rays along with the halibut we all brought home.
To anyone considering a fishing trip out of Seward, I have 3 pieces of advice:
1. Spend the money booking the trip. You won't regret it.
2. Go with Crackerjack. You can't find a better Captain, boat, or company.
3. Take my cousin's advise and "take extra money to ship your fish home--because you WILL catch some monsters out there".
I CANNOT thank the Captain and company of Crackerjack enough. And I cannot express how GREAT a time/adventure this was for me--and will be for you.
