As a USCG certified charter Captain my job is to catch a few fish even on the days that the fish don't want to be caught. A few times every season we have a trip where we don't catch any fish. I still work very hard and the boat still uses the same amount of gas whether we are catching fish or not. If you happen to book a trip on one of those rare occasions, I will give it my all. If we don't catch any fish on your trip, I will try to make it up to you on your next trip at no additional cost. The next time we fish, you will get a full day of fishing for a half day's price.
I always try my best to show my anglers a good time, but sometimes the weather is not our friend or the fishing is not what you expected. If this happens on your trip and you're not having a good time, let me know you want to quit and we will return to the dock and I will gladly refund the amount of time that is left on your trip.
In the early spring (April through May) we fish the shallow near shore waters and our primary target is the Brown Trout. Also, when conditions are right we fish the Lake Trout in 100-150 feet of water. As the season progresses, the water along the shore warms up and the fish move into deeper water. As we follow these fish, the mighty King Salmon and Coho start to mix in making fishing extremly fun.
Summer fishing (June and July) is deep water Thermocline fishing and we fish for all species of trout. The summer fishing trips are very friendly to families especially with children that would like good weather conditions and a nice easy trip. Its a great way to show children a good time fishing without the rough sea. As we fish the Thermocline if one species is not biting we can usually find one that will.
Fall fishing trips (August and September) are where we pursue the mature King Salmon in both deep and shallow water. Bring your muscles for these trips as it can be a lot of reeling as these big fish try to make their journey to the river to spawn. It is excelent fun and makes for a great trip.
