Went fishing with J-dock again, right at the end of the 2016 season. Captain Will and his deckhands on the "Predator" did an excellent job - they found us fish, and we all came back with our limits of Halibut, Ling Cod, and Yelloweye rockfish (the Salmon did not really show up this year). The staff in the office also... More

I have been fishing for decades and can honestly say this was the best trip I have ever taken. I met Kamell at a hunting expo in Salt Lake City and he booked the entire trip on the spot, including lodging at the Grande Alaska Lodge, in Seward. I brought my wife who does not fish and I was concerned... More

Had an amazing trip. Went out on the Arcticat and the Preditor. Great days out on the water. Captains on both boats did everything possible to ensure a great day of fishing and everyone came back with fish.

We were in town for a few evenings and realized this is a cool place to visit in the evenings. The charters returned nightly with the haul of fish. Locals, tourists, and the occasional dock dog would gather around to see the days work. Great place to take pictures, buy t-shirts, and buy fresh fish. It was a fun nightly... More

We went out for a 3/4 day trip for salmon, rockfish and ling cod on El Patron. Captain John, Collin and Ryan were awesome. They were really helpful and tried to make sure everybody had a good time and got fish. The captain was great at finding the rockfish and salmon. We didn't have as much luck with the cod... More
