Alaskan Salmon and Halibut Charter Fishing Boats


The Finest Equipment

Lamiglas Salmon Moocher rods and Shimano Tekota line counter reelsWe believe it's our responsibility to ensure that every detail is accounted for on your trip to Alaska and that philosophy also applies to the equipment we use.

Our vessel, the "Polar Bear", is a 2008 28' North River equipped with state of the art electronics and safety equipment. It's state of the art equipment includes Lowrance GPS/Sonar/Chartplotter's with Structure Scan side scanning technology. The "Polar Bear" has a heated and enclosed cabin for the ride to and from the fishing grounds and a large deck that provides plenty of room for fighting multiple fish. For our customers pleasure, and ours, our Alaskan fishing boats are also equipped with Sirius satellite radio, providing over 100 channels of listening pleasure.

In addition, we also contract the "Knot Topless" and the "Makai" on a steady basis throughout the summer. Both vessels are equipped much like the "Polar Bear" and are operated by two very capable captains, Kim McCarthy and Troy Thane. Both Kim and Troy are seasoned captains, patient with beginners to the sport, and take great pride in putting our customers on fish.

Fighting the ocean fresh fish that you'll hook on our charters is half the reason why you came to Alaska, so why not use the highest quality tackle money can buy.

With this in mind, we've chosen the "Salmon Moocher" series made by Lamiglas, which are sensitive enough to pick up even the most subtle of bites, yet powerful enough to handle a trophy class king salmon.

Matched to these rods are Shimano Tekota line counter reels that offer perhaps the smoothest drag of any reel on the market.

For halibut fishing we use Lamiglas rods and Penn reels loaded with 100 lb Berkley braided line. For your comfort, we also provide fighting belts that make cranking up halibut and bottomfish a whole lot easier.
