Thank you and your staff so much we all had a great time! You folks run a first class operation, from the time we got off the plane until we boarded to come home your staff was friendly, courteous, and ever so helpful. Captain DJ and deckhands Bryan and Alex were awesome. I’ve been fishing in Alaska several times and unfortunately felt like some captains sole goal was to get fish and get off the water, that was definitely not the case with DJ. Captain DJ and deckhands Bryan and Alex made every effort to ensure we had great fishing and enjoyed our trip. They gave us advice on techniques to catch fish, insured our bait was fresh, the equipment was functioning properly, netted or safely released our fish, prepared a great lunch, and cleaned the fish at the end of the day. You could tell they truly enjoyed their work.
Fishing was impressive as over the five days we hooked many different species and boated our limit of kings, lingcod and yellow eye, with daily limits of silvers and halibut.
The accommodations exceeded my expectations. The rooms were clean and comfortable with all the amenities of home. The ability to sit on the deck every evening and smell the salt water and enjoy the animals, passing boats and the landscape was amazing. The “Bacon Fairy” brought our room fresh bread, eggs, juice, coffee and bacon everyday for a hearty breakfast. Bringing our fresh catch to the room for dinner, allowed us to focus on the primary purpose of the trip – fishing, relaxing, and most importantly having fun and making memories.
The “Tent Event” was a good opportunity to talk with staff and other anglers and use the van to tour town and surrounding area added to an already fabulous experience. I could go on, but I will stop for now and just say thank you all for the great trip and hope to see everyone next year!
