 Located in scenic Ninilchik, on the shores of Cook Inlet

  Whether you want to fish for King salmon,
 barn door halibut or the spectacular fighting silver salmon
we can arrange a memorable trip

     Our early season trips are at a time when literally thousands of Kings are migrating through Cook Inlet. Halibut and Kings hanging at base campDuring a combo trip you will be able catch Kings and halibut each day. The halibut fishing is good all year with many large fish caught.  We fish King salmon year round when avaliable. The Kings average between 10-40 lbs depending on time of year with larger fish caught every year. Our overall success rate is one of the best in the area.  Silver salmon start showing in the end of July and run through September.Seward Silver Salmon Derby

      In August and September we fish out of Seward, Alaska for silver salmon.  This scenic town is about three hours from Anchorage.  In August Seward hosts the oldest fishing derby in Alaska.  Prizes are awarded for the largest silver salmon of the day and for the whole derby.  This is a very popular event for Alaskans as well as visitors to the state.

Starting in October, we are in Homer fishing for winter kings. We fish all winter, weather dependant. The limit for winter Kings is 2/day, any size all winter long. They average 8-20 lbs with larger ones caught every winter. Homer hosts the largest single day derby in Alaska in March. The pay off is based on the amount of anglers entered. Big payouts, lots of prizes, and boats are able to make side bets. It is the biggest single day derby payout in Alaska.

We also offer guided razor clam trips across the inlet. The west side of Cook Inlet has no limit on razor clams. We encourage people to take what they need on this trip to help preserve this valuable resource. This is a low tide, weather dependant trip form May through July.
