Daily Charter Times

  • 7 – 11 a.m.
  • 12 – 4 p.m.
  • 5 – 9 p.m.

Our flexible Seward Half-Day Rockfish & Silver Salmon Charters depart three times daily at 7 a.m., 12 p.m., and 5 p.m. and are offered all season. Boat running time can be 15 minutes to an hour to our fishing grounds, depending on where the best fishing is. These Alaska fishing trips are best for those wanting to get the fishing in on a limited timeframe – and are usually action-packed start to finish!

Join us in the morning or evening for  four to four and a half hours on the Michael A or the Thomas Sea for some exciting salmon (in season, June – Sept.), black bass (May to Sept.), ling cod (after July 1 and 35 in. in length), and rockfish fishing! When fishing for black bass, it is often common to catch a yellow eye rock fish (commonly known as a red snapper) as well and the limit is one per person per day. The limits are four rockfish (one can be a red snapper and three black bass or a total of four black bass) and one ling cod.

It is not uncommon to catch a king salmon when fishing for silvers! We usually fish for silvers starting late June (through September), and they put up a great fight, making the average 8 – 20 lb. salmon fun to catch. The limit is six per person when caught inside the bay and three per person outside the bay.

We focus on harvesting the full daily limit for silver salmon and rockfish on these trips, and often enjoy great success in the short time spent! Filet of your fish and a private hanging station back at the landing for photos is included in your adventure. Enjoy world-class silver salmon and rockfish fishing using purpose-built, custom-made in the USA fishing rods from Thrasher Rods and all hand tied gear in house. Free parking, and fishing licenses available for sale on site, we leave right from our store facility just South of Seward!

There is a wonderful advantage to fish in the late afternoon because there is not as much competition and the water is generally calmer. Same thing with the 6 a.m. charters as we get a good head start over the other charters and get to the fishing grounds first.

On the half-day Seward fishing charters, the running time is approximately 35 to 40 minutes each way. The boat goes out to either Cape Resurrection or Cape Aialik (Captain’s choice) to the  prime fishing areas but does not go out as far as the full day. Often times we see whales, sea lions, eagles, sea otters, and other exciting wildlife on these family-friendly fishing charters.
