Everyone will tell you about all the fish they catch, but what about when the fish are not jumping into the boat? It does happen and this is a review of one such day. Fishing isn't always catching and it could happen to you just like it did us. If it does, this is who you want to be with. Spoiler Alert: We are just finishing our delicious Kings caught on this very trip last June! I wish I could say the fishing was easy and plentiful, but it wasn't. The kings were hard to come by on the day we were in Ketchikan last June. BUT, that is what separates the real fishing guides from the guys with a boat and some fishing poles. Nick is a REAL guide. The day was absolutely beautiful. Nick worked hard while entertaining us with the bald eagles (so amazing!) and his vast knowledge and history of the area and Alaska fishing. Because of Nick's effort and salmon expertise, we landed two very nice Kings and a Humpy. We also caught a few small sharks. As you have read on other reviews, Nick picked us up at the dock of our Princess ship, he gets closer than any other fishing boat to the ship. You basically step off the gangway onto Nick's boat. It could not be easier! From my wife (who isn't a fisherman) to my sons and I who love to fish, we all had a fantastic time!! He took care of everything from beginning to end, including the paperwork and shipping of our fish back to Florida. My sons and I have had guides all over the US, Caribbean, and Mexico. Nick is simply the best...and that is on a slow fishing day! That day my sons and I saw plenty of other guys with their boats and fishing poles. Fortunately, we were in the boat with the Fishing Guide! For us it wasn't just a fishing trip it was a unique, personal and fantastic family experience we will never forget!

Nick and Josh met us at the dock as we got off Golden Princess, and kept our party of eight busy for 4+ hours salmon fishing on two different boats. In total, we caught about 30 fish and were able to send 26 home. So, so fun!! We also were able to feed eagles and even saw a whale!! Wonderful day in Ketchikan!!

Nick was waiting on the pier for us when we got off our Holland America cruise ship in Ketchikan. Our name was on his board, like getting picked up by a limo at the airport. We wasted no time and were out fishing for salmon. We had the best time, great fishing, great captain, nice boat, wonderful snacks and the salmon we caught he took to the processor for us and it will be shipped to enjoy back home. Definitely book with Nick and Chasin' Tail Charters.

We had an excellent time fishing with Captain Nick! We caught several species (including our limit on pinks) I would recommend this charter and would use them again if we returned to the area.

Four of us enjoyed three full days of King and Silver salmon fishing with Nick and thoroughly enjoyed our time and experience. We were able to land both Silver and King salmon. Nick never stopped working the gear, changing locations to find the right fishing spots, and making sure we had a great time. We will be back! Thanks, Nick, for a most enjoyable and successful time.
