Hello! We operate several different boats ranging from 32'-51'. 3 boats take a max load of 6 passengers, and the other 2 take 10-12 anglers.

We are open mid May-early Sept, and the fishing is great the whole time! Halibut, yellow eye, and rock fish are around all summer. King salmon is best May-June, while silver salmon are better starting mid July! Ling cod season opens July 1!

All of our crews and highly experienced and take the utmost pride in facilitating a trip of a lifetime, whether it's your first trip to Alaska or your 100th! The best way to catch fish is listening to your crews and by having fun! Besides, you're fishing in Alaska, doesn't get much better than that!

Most of our trips are full day combo trips, so we target all the different species in the same day. To target halibut, rockfish, and ling, come after July 1!!

Hope to see you in Alaska, and please feel free to call the office with any other questions!

They have several different boats - taking anywhere from 6-12 people... (or less, depending on how many book). Halibut is just about always a certainty - any week.... as is rockfish... check the regulations for Ling availability. I have been with several different Captains .. I like Captain Will. They will make sure you catch fish - just follow the crew's directions..! They know what works - years of experience..!
