Spent the day cruising the recent Outdoors Show at the Carlson Center listening to all the charter companys pitch their operations. Well, me and some office mates decided to charter with a particular outfitter. This "2 Letter" company (you figure it out) told us that they would have us out on the water for 8-9 hours, would troll for kings about 2 hours, and would be set up in a great cabin. So, sounds great, doesn't it? As I had used this Charter before, I expected a great time. Well, my co-workers went out this past week (my trip is in July) and had the following experience. In a nutshell, only trolled for kings about 30-40 minutes and were told the trip was over after after only 5 hours of fishing. Weather was fine and tides were perfect, but they supposedly had a second group to take out, so the fishing ending early with folks scrambling to get a few last butts before they pulled anchor. Was pretty much a chicken run according to the group that went. The fillets were butchered as they were trying to get the other group out that had been waiting hours for their trip (is that double booking?) Also had problems with the cabins they had rented (well in advance). Seems the outfit may have grown too fast over the last 2 years and were very disorganized. Finally, the group stated the owner was a very rude and grumpy guy and made them feel unwelcomed. So, maybe someone out there has now figured out who this outfit is, and I'd like any feedback you can provide. Wish I could just name the outfit, but I assume that is bad mojo for this site. Anyway, as a consumer, who is paying this guys wages, when I charter him he better be providing what is promised and what I have in writing (acts of god permitting). That kind of p*ss-poor service may work on out-of-staters, but it won't for this Alaskan.
