    Default Valdez Halibut Charter

    Has anyone had any experience on the "Jamie Lynn" out of Valdez? The boat is operated by Kingfisher's Perch. I can find a lot of information about their fresh water guide service, but almost nothing about their Valdez charter. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    If they are new to chartering out of Valdez, they won't be able to fish halibut. If a silver charter, they don't go far and could do that...never heard of them but think I have seen the boat.

    Thanks for the info Cap'n Ron. Like you I had never heard of them, but booked a 6 pack halibut charter with them through Fishcentral. It was a last minute deal and they had the only boat still available. I guess I'll have to take my chances, it serves me right for not planning ahaed.

    Good luck! I think a new boat can purchase or partner with a boat that already has a halibut permit. Since they seem to be new, they will likely try hard and may be really good...let us know on the forum how it works out!
