Our fourth year with Joe and always a great time. We spent 4 days chasing coho. Clean boat, good equipment, and tireless effort on Joe's part to provide the best fishing experience possible. Can't wait to return in 2019.

We fished with Joe for four days at the beginning of August 2018. We did really well with salmon, halibut, cod, and rockfish despite some difficult conditions. Joe has been fishing in Ketchikan forever, so he knows where to go and how to catch fish....More

Fishing is never guaranteed, but I thought it would be a sightseeing tour even if the fishing was bad, but we only saw one mile of shore ten times. I would have done one star, but I did get amazing pics of eagles right at...More

This customer has confused my business with another charter operator in Ketchikan with a similar name. I have requested the reviewer to retract these comments.

Joe is a such a friendly, entertaining guide who most importantly puts you on fish. My brother and I booked a 4 hour fishing trip while on our cruise, and with only 5 hours in port we were a little nervous going in. There was...More
