About Muttley Crew Fishing Adventures
For some of the best halibut, salmon, lingcod and rockfish fishing in Alaska it's hard to beat Homer as a destination. I cater to groups of 2, 3 or 4 people and won't fill your boat with people you don't know like other charter operators do. I'll tailor your day to what sort of fishing you want to do whether it's a single species you'd like to target, or multiple species all in one day. I DO NOT charge a multi-species charge like all the other charter operators do. So come join Penny (my furry, faithful fishing companion) and me for a day of fishing you won't ever forget.

I just thought I'd post this b/c I don't see anyone mentioning this anywhere. We had a wonderful time with Dave and Penny a few years ago. RIP, Dave.

Fishing with Dave and the "First Mate" Penny, was a highlight of my Alaskan experience. The boat was comfortable and very easy to fish from. Dave's equipment was a little lighter so you could feel the fish bite. On the previous day I went on...More

Thanks Nate. LOL! I will be the FIRST to admit my boat is certainly not "spit shined" or anything close to that. But I LOVE what I do and I absolutely LOVE to get people onto fish and I just hope that makes up for...More

Thanks "1justfishin". Yes, Penny certainly is my little sea otter alarm. Those things will just track you down and take over the boat if you're not careful, and Penny does her best to make sure that doesn't happen. LOL! We did get some decent halibut...More

We spent over 10 hours on the water with Capt Dave and Penny and we had a blast! Dave will fish until you cry uncle unlike other boats that operate on a strict timer. He put us on halibut quickly but wasn't afraid to try...More

The "flexibility" my smaller boat provides is part of the reason I do what I do. Larger charter boats burn more gas than my boat does which equates to not being able to try as many varied locations as I tend to do if one...More
