Proven make/model for SE Alaska. Probably one of the best designed charter fishing boats for SE AK.
Security of twin outboards. Powered by twin 150 HP outboards as well as a 9.9 "Kicker" outboard.
Plenty of deck space for four anglers
New outboards in 2017 and professionally maintained
Air Ride Suspension Seat For Each Angler
Heater for cabin
Portable Marine Head (toilet) available for use
Modern electronics and all safety gear
Boat will be cleaned daily after every charter and will be neat and organized.
This is a safe and efficient boat. Due to it's efficiency and low fuel burn compared to other boats, Captain Joel is not afraid to run to the "outer reaches" where the fishing is very very good for halibut, lingcod, and yellow eye. We have room to roam and Capt Joel has no spots that are off limits like many operations do.
Daiwa reels with line counters for mooching
Quality rods to suit the fishing. Seeker and Berkeley Air rods.
Avet halibut reels with J-Braid.
Hand-tied leaders with Gamakatsu hooks. All leaders will be replaced when necessary and all rods will have new leaders on them to start the day.
All gear and line will be in excellent working order as you would expect from an experienced guide.
You can count on Captain Joel to have all the gear prepared and ready BEFORE you leave the dock, to maximize fishing time. The rods will be baited so that you can be dropping cut plugs before Captain Joel gets the kicker motor started.
