We are a proud Alaskan and family-owned business that really knows its stuff.

Operated and owned by 3rd generation fishermen and still located on the family homestead, we have been fishing in Alaska’s cold waters before the company was even born. Start your fishing trip with the confidence that your captain and crew are equipped with all the knowledge or tools at our disposal.

Fish Processing

Let us do all the dirty work

We fillet or prepare your fish as you like, rinsed, skinned, and ready to freeze. Then we store it or you take it to our local processor where it can be frozen, vacuum packed, shipped, or stored for a longer period of time.
