We sure enjoyed our trip with Todd of Fishbone Charters. He was knowledgeable and a very able captain, guide and fisherman. There were 5 of us from age 18-53 with little fishing experience yet we were up and fishing in no time. Todd seemed to be quite adept at maneuvering his boat and knowing where to go.

My husband was the only one to catch a King Salmon, we were a little disappointed that we couldn't keep it, but Todd was just following Alaska Fish and Game Regs so it wasn't up to him. The rest of us still had fun and enjoyed the great views along the way.

The condition of the boat and equipment made for a smooth trip. Everything was in great working order. Enough poles and rigs to keep us busy all day. We loved the waders.

We went out on the river with two young children, grandma and parents.
Within 5 minutes of dropping anchor my son had caught a King Salmon!
During the entire time we were given detailed information on the history of the town, the river, fishing and fun facts about Talkeetna. It was wonderful. Our guide was on time, courteous and hilarious!
He made sure that ALL of the generations had a good time. My grandkids were enthralled. I would do this again on my next visit!

We have fished almost every year since 2005 with Todd. He is truly exceptional in all aspects.... knowledge of the river, fishing techniques, boating, etc.... He knows how to catch fish.
You will NOT be disappointed fishing with Todd Kingery at Fishbone Charters.
First class in every way.

Todd and Fishbone Charters exceeded our expectations in every way. We booked a King Salmon fishing trip with him several months in advance. However, after arriving in Talkeetna with rainy and inclement weather, our prospects for catching anything were looking dim. The talk around town was that we weren’t going to catch anything. Fortunately, Todd was flexible and suggested that we wait a day to let things clear up a bit. We’re so glad we did! We were able to hook into about a dozen King Salmon and land 6 great-sized fish (3 of them were nearly 40 lbs)!!

Our charter with Fishbone was a wild success. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and a better guide. Todd was patient, fun and generous with his time and skill. We would recommend him to anybody.

I booked a silver salmon charter for my mother and 88 year old grandmother and was so impressed in Todds paitence and dedication to this unique situation. My grandmother set the record for the oldest client. She must have come close to setting the record for filling her limit of salmon too. She filled her limit in 45 minutes. Todd Rocks! This guy knows how and where to fish!
