Trip was canceled to weather and was still charge $50.00/person. Poor weather they cannot fish in the Gulf of Alaska they give you the option to fish inside protected areas, and that if you decide to not fish under these conditions, you will forfeit $50.00/person of the charter price conditions.

Wanted to go fishing in the Gulf of Alaska and paid upfront for the experience. Once we arrived at the boat we were told by the Capt. that a gale warning was in effect and he would only take us out a few miles from the harbor if we wanted to fish. When we decided not to pay to fish only in the protected area of the harbor we were told we'd have to forfeit $50 per person for not going out. We also, had to call and remind Mel that we needed the remainder of our funds reimbursed. Last time we try to use this charter company.

We booked a day fishing with Mel on the Bold Eagle Aug 2016. The weather report was a gale warning. The report was for 9 -11 ft seas. The whole harbor cancelled. We were told what a rough day we would have. But even with a gale warning we were told the trip was not canceled. This was to ensure we had to pay for cancellation. Do not book with this crook. 9 ft seas are not safe. We paid $250 to show up and be told everyone else has canx for safety, but we will take you if you are stupid enough to go. Since we said no. We were charged a fee. You can fund an honest Captain. I suggest you do so.

This is an unethical company. They tell you upfront that they will fish in poor weather and that if they cannot fish in the Gulf of Alaska they give you the option to fish inside protected areas, and that if you decide to not fish under these conditions, you will forfeit $50.00/person of the charter price conditions.

What they don't tell you is that they will take you out to the Gulf of Alaska, pretending it is fishable and that they don't know the sea conditions until they get out there. This way you are on the hook for the full price of the charter. This is exactly what happened to us in July 2016. Took us 3 hrs to get out, fished for 45 mins in such hi seas that the anchor couldn't hold. Then had to run back which took 4 hrs due to 10 + ft seas, and once in protected areas, only had 1/2 hr to fish. Needless to say my wife and I caught nothing due to not enough fishing time. We also got pounded to death in the boat. I called Mel to complain who would not make any price adjustment, claiming you can't know the conditions until you are out there. If that is true, why write in the agreement that if too rough to go out, you have option to not fish and forfeit 50.00? This company is greedy and out for your money and not in any way looking out for you.

I highly recommend the Halibut Grove. As a local Alaskan I have been out on charters several times, but I must say that Jason and Seth made this trip a huge success. They kept us on fish the whole time and we're friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. We almost limited out on all species we were fishing for. We came back with nice halibut, rockfish, and huge ling cod. It was an exceptional trip and I definitely will try to book another trip with them! Thanks guys for a job well done.
