Homer is one of the few places on the Kenai Peninsula that maintains a Winter King Salmon migration during the shoulder season months of January, February, March, and April!

Things To Consider


When it comes to fishing, there are a few things to consider before purchasing a trip from any charter service. The first and most important, is that while you are hiring an experienced local guide to put you on the best spots, it's impossible to know ahead of time if you'll retreive limits or desired size. To help with reassurance, we can say that our crew is phenomenal and reading reviews prior to booking is the best way to select the charter best for you!

Secondly, in the event you do not rent the boat exclusively, we work hard to book guests with alike personalities and desired goals. While it's not guaranteed everyone will love everyone, it's never been a problem for our guests in the past and in fact, more often than not, we end up seeing life-long friendships developed!

Lastly, being an owner and operator means that we remain hands-on with every interaction and experience that occurs with our team. With that being said, we work hard to ensure a quality and fun trip and more importantly, we want to hear about it! After your trip is complete, please feel free to reach out to us and let us know how we did! Like we said from the beginning, guests that step onto our boats, are returned to the docks as family! See you out on the water!
