There are lots of fishing charter operators out there, so why should you choose us? Long before we started chartering clients, we just fished for fun, and we have a lot of fun! This adventure should stick with you long after the fillets have been eaten and the photos are faded. We hope you remember your fishing trip with us for exactly the right reason – you had a great time!
We have over a dozen years experience finding and catching halibut in the relatively shallow waters of Cook Inlet. We run our 28-foot boat out of Ninilchik, Alaska, so the boat ride is much shorter than you will find from other ports in Southcentral Alaska. We hope reeling up fish wears you out, rather than an exhausting boat ride. We utilize a tractor launch to start and end our trips, which is as unique an experience as Alaska herself.
We take pride in our equipment. In fact, we’re rather picky about our fishing gear. We bolt rugged Avet reels onto all of our halibut rods, and we pair quality Shimano Tekota trolling reels with our salmon rods. We even make most of the bait rigs, jigs, and weights ourselves. All of our tackle is selected to catch fish and eliminate excuses!
We want you to have fun and catch fish, but we also take our job as your captain and crew seriously. Capt. Dan and Capt. Mike each have 50T Masters licenses, and they run trips together as often as their schedule allows. Our boat, SEEKER, is well-maintained and inspected at the start of each season. Our safety gear is in working order and easily located. To make sure everyone knows what to do in an emergency, we start each trip with a safety briefing with our clients. We don’t like surprises while we are on the water, unless it has something to do with seeing whales or other Alaskan sea life.
Our host campground, Deep Creek View Campground, has a variety of services to make your trip more comfortable and convenient for you. They offer excellent fish processing services, vacuum-packing and freezing, after Mike and Dan have expertly filleted your fish (we get a lot of practice!). For lodging, there are several different cabin options for you to choose from, depending on the size of your group. They also have electrical sites available for your RVs and travel trailers, and their tent sites rest on nicely mowed grass. They have freshwater available for your RV tanks and a dump station, as well.
Feel free to give us a call, and we can help answer your questions.
