Thread: Booking a large trip out of Seward

  1. #1

    Default Booking a large trip out of Seward

    I am trying to arrange a fishing trip for myself and my colleagues this summer. I have ideas on what would be best, I am thinking the end of June or Early July for this. There should be 20 to 30 of us. I am thinking halibut and silvers and ling/yelloweye (after the 1st for ling I know) out of Seward, to Pony cove, or Montague area. I am looking for suggestions for a boat that would show us a good time. Thanks if you can.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    For that many people I would book with Saltwater Safari. They've got multiple large boats and have recieved rave reviews from the people I have talked to.

    Thumbs up

    For your party's size, try the Fish House's boats: The Perserverance & The Servant.

    Yeah I would say the Fish House, they have a fleet of over 75 boats that they book for. If you know anyone in the party who is military or retired military or even DOD Civilian you can book the boats at the Seward Military Resort http://www.sewardresort.com/

    You are going at a good time to; because I wnet in late May and early June and the boats were not even going out because of the waves and conditions anywhere from 8 to 16 and up to 35 ft seas on some days

    Tha's what made me go with DNM chartes and I drove around 320 miles round trip to Deep Creek from Seward and back to Seward all in one day made for a really long day especially for the guy who got sea sick.

    Most of us are active duty, so I may look in to the US Army Resort. I already emailed the Fish House about the trip and I'll wait for what they say.
    Thank you for that suggestion.

    We went with them last July and had an awesome trip. These guys knew were the big halibut were and we limited on silvers in no time at all. Had a great boat that would handle 9 folks and also a 6 pack for smaller groups. These guys were fun and new what they were doing.

    The Army's Seward Resort is top knotch! I've stayed there a few times. However, they may not be in full line anymore with their boats. Last year my wife & I went on a halibut run through Seward Resorts and learned the Army soldiers will no longer be participating as deck hands. Deployments & manning issues. If anything definitely stay at the resort. The prices & facilities are great + they have duplexes.

    The Army trips are nice, but for a big party I'd look into Pro Fish n Sea, they have two boats that I know of perhaps you have enough for both of them. I'd also suggest July to maximize Salmon possibilities and go for Ling Cod.

    I sure did enjoy the Seward Resort http://www.sewardresort.com/

    I was a guest for a day trip. But had the opportunity to check the place out. I was very impressed with all the amenities. Everything from big cleaning houses with vacuum sealing machines to large walk-in freezers and a shipping house...just to name a few. They also have a fleet of boats. I'm not sure if you'll all fit onto one boat or not, they looked like they fit about 20 or so. Who knows, maybe they have larger boats...

    Anyway, that's my .02 for what it's worth. (Two thumbs up)

    Yeah, it's gotta be the only place in the world where the Army has a nicer facility than the Air Force does.

    Default I head to Seward...

    about 3-5 times a year.

    My wife twists my arm and says I have to go.....

    So over the last 10 years or so I've gotten to know Seward quite abit.

    I have always used the Army boats to go out to Montague Is. and in between. NICE FACILITY HAND DOWN!!!!! So one year about 3 years ago I got a hairbrained idea to use <name deleted>. Pay a little more maybe catch bigger fish, you know the deal.

    To make a long story short: <They> took us out to Pony Cove a well know chicken hole and came back and that was that!
    I was soooooo pissed! That was the first and last <for them> ever!

    I've been on the some charters out of the Fish House there and they never done me wrong......I think you would be happy with them too.

    Since then....I always talk to the Capt's and let them know that I'm familar with the area. (Not in a arrogant way...just in casual conversation in the wheel house.)

    One thing about Seward is the big fish (halibut) are rare but there are plenty of fish in and out of Resurrection Bay. Big Lings, big bass, lots of salmon and boy is it pretty there!

    Default Stay *FAR* away from <name deleted>....

    ....worst charter experience ever!!!!

    They employ very inexperienced guides / captains and often these kids have not slept in 2-3 days...simply working round the clock, in order to make summertime cash $$$. (Not sure if the Coast Guard would approve of this.)

    After a charter on them this past summer, we wrote them a letter, complaining about a laundry list of errors and mistakes they made, and they never responded. No apologies. No attempts to refund (part of) our money...nothing. No response what-so-ever.

    I regret not going with the Fish House...from what I've heard, they are tops in Seward!

    Exclamation Negative comments about businesses deleted

    Guys, I edited several messages in this thread that contained negative comments about businesses. Our rules have never permitted this:

    Do you permit negative comments about individuals and businesses? We do not permit negative comments about individuals, businesses or organizations. If a question is posted about a business, it is best to respond privately. The issue is one of liability for us. These forums are a public service, and we are unwilling to deal with the potential for litigation that could destroy our business. The easiest answer for us is "no negative comments." If you have had a bad experience, simply indicate that you have had experience with the company in question and invite people to contact you privately.

    Default Censorship

    This has nothing to do with censorship. As this site is privately owned, the owner can make any rules that he likes. As stated, the rule has to do with liability. Maybe we should ban attorneys. You can always PM a person to discuss a negative experience.

    I hate attorney's!

    My point is simple. We (Forum members) discuss negative comments about individuals and businesses every day.

    Remington this, Clinton that, Ruger this, Ebay this, Obama that ect. ect.

    I see it as the opinion of the member(s); not the the opinion of the site.

    Maybe the forum should have a sub-message like before movies and t.v. shows:

    "This message board does not have the same thoughts or opinions as of the posts. Any sitituations that the post expresses are purely coincidental and does not express the thoughts or feelings of the owners, owners's animals, owner's family, members, member's animals, members families. -This also includes there postmen and milk men.-


    I will play nicely from here on out!
