I am planning a trip back to AK with my family, and want to find the best Halinut Charter Captain available. (Within certain parameters) I fished a few years ago out of Valdez, but did not care for the long ride out of the bay. Although I am open to a long ride if the trip is worth it. I am planning my trip 2 years in advance, so, I hope to be able to get a reservation with the best.
I have looked into fishing out of Dutch Harbor, but flights from Anchorage are $1,000 and up. That is a lot to tack onto the airfare and other expenses for a family of four. In other words, there are some limits to how far I will go.
If you post a recommendation, please tell me why you think it is the best. Does he stay booked over a year in advance? Does he out produce other boats? Or is it your cousin Billy Bob who just really needs some cash?
