We offer FULL DAY and HALF DAY FISHING trips on the beautiful waters of Puget Sound. The Seattle area offers year-round fishing with a wide variety of species one can catch. Depending on the time of year you book, we may be fishing for King Salmon (Chinook), Silver Salmon (Coho), Pink Salmon, Chum Salmon or Ling Cod. Check out our “Seasons” page, for more specific season information. Please note that seasons may be subject to change if the catch quota for a certain species is met. It is best to contact us directly so we can best inform you about what is available for the date you are planning your trip.

We provide ALL the equipment you need to fish. Your catch will be filleted and bagged. We usually book 3 to 5 persons per trip, but can handle up to 6 persons per boat. If you are a single, or a party of two or three, we will likely book you with one or more persons. Of course you are always welcome to book the entire boat with any number of people in your party. (See “Charter Pricing”)

DEPARTURES: Puget Sound is divided into Marine Areas. Depending on the time of year you book and what areas are open for the type of species we are fishing, we may be departing from Seattle, Edmonds, or Everett. Most of the year departures will take place from Seattle or Edmonds. We can make arrangements for special pick-ups if needed. Each trip departure time will be made based on the daylight, fishing and your own personal preferences. In mid-summer we leave EARLY; the typical departure time for morning charters is 5:30 am.

We want your experience to be as much fun as possible! Please call or email us with any questions or concerns and we will do our very best to accommodate your wishes.
