Kings remain good

Picked up a solid limit of kings this morning.  Also caught halibut lingcod, and black bass. Two of the gentlemen are from Australia who traveled to Alaska to experience the fishing.  One of the kings topped 25lbs.

Early morning run

Had the morning off.  Ran down to my honey hole and had our limit of 3 kings in 20 minutes.  Boom.  Good times with good friends.  Charter tomorrow.

June 11-July 1st.  $100 off per person for groups of three and four.

Kings and Black Bass

Just over an hour for limits of kings. They were waiting for us in the same spot we caught them the previous two days.  Several shaker kings too.  Halibut was rough.  Fished five different spots, no keepers. Lots of Pacific cod which got our hopes up.  We got into halibut at one spot but a huge bull sea lion was on us robbing us of our halibut.  Once they get under the boat it is over. Looking forward to better weather to anchor offshore.  Picked up a limit of black bass too.  Big weather arriving tomorrow.  We are limited on Kings (three annual limit) so we will attempt to get some rockfish and hopefully halibut and be back before the storm intensifies.  Very glad we did the half day on the

Kings/halibut/Black Bass

Kings started out good and we had our limit of two in under an hour.  A little smaller than the previous day but still nice fish. Halibut fishing was slow.  First spot only gave us Pacific cod.  Second spot we got our limit of a 33 and 29 inch halibut.   Took a good deal of time.  Black bass fishing was very good and it was pretty much over before it started. Hopefully halibut fishing picks up.  Will try different areas tomorrow.  All kings are bled/gutted and packed with ice which gives excellent product.

Late May

Group of two arrived early yesterday so we did a half day due to some weather that might arrive on Saturday. Limited on nice sized kings, 1 small halibut and a rockfish.  First full day coming up.


Craig Alaska is hot for kings. Took my visiting parents and my wife’s friend out king fishing.  Lots of action.  Stopped for a lingcod for fish and chips on the way in.


Day charter yesterday.  Four guys up on a bear hunt.  4 kings, 3 Halibut, 4 lingcod, 15 black bass, and 4 rockfish.  Windy which kept us from getting that last Halibut.

Kings and halibut

Wife’s friend is in town.  Took her out at 4am and she caught a king and a halibut.  Early bird gets the worm.  Halibut weighed in at around 75 pounds.   King was a 12lb feeder.  Back home by 640am.


Check out this review of my guide service on Alaska Outdoor Forum.  Keep in mind that these are very early charters before our normal season kicks off.  Kings will be here in good numbers any day now.  I am one of he only charter operators brave enough to fish right now.  Here   90% of the guides don’t show up for a few more weeks.


Had a charter today with two brothers up steelhead fishing. Cool guys. Still waiting for the schools of kings to show.   Grinded it out and burned fuel looking but fell short on limits.


Been very busy the last few weeks.   Came home from Wrangell and had to hit the ground running.   Fishing commercial hatchery openings as well as a charter.  Doing pretty well on the kings.  Charter went well too, but was slow for kings on sport gear.
