    I have not used these guys personally but they seem to bring nice catches in to the dock. Good Luck and let us know how you do:

    check out "no excuses" i went with them a few years ago on a derby hole trip for an extra $50 and we ended up with 1500lbs of fish on the boat.

    Default Orion

    I went out with Orion years ago...they definitely put us on fish. The only downfall is it was a big boat, with lots of folks fishing. As far as charters go, I much prefer a six pack.

    Orion charters only runs 6 pack boats, been out with them 3 times and limited every time. Its a long boat ride but well worth it.

    Just returned from a trip with the Otter Dodger, we caught lots of fish.
    If you need help with booking a boat contact Fish Central at 907-835-5002.

    We booked the Otter Dodger last year through Fish Central. Drove down from North Pole. The morning we were supposed to go out, there was no booking showing for us on the OT. They admitted they'd screwed up and we ended up going out with someone else, but can't remember who.
    Work schedules mean we will be going late in the season so was hoping to check with Orion, Otter Dodger & No Excuses direct to see if they've got any cancellations.

    We booked the Otter Dodger, through Fish Central a couple of years ago - they had a great boat, and quality gear - made sure everyone limited out. I'd go with them again for sure.
