Guided salmon and bottom fishing charter trips in the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State. There is no way to describe the excitement of putting folks on their first king salmon, giant lingcod, or huge halibut. The smile is from ear to ear, you can almost see their hearts pounding through their chests, and their hands shake for an hour afterward in response to the adrenaline. The stories get told, and the memories last a life time.

We had a party of 5 and were very comfortable. It cost about 1100 for the boat and then the cost of the 1-day fishing license. We gave about $100 tip to the Captain and his mate. It was very much worth it. There are... More
