  • Ninilchik charters...looking for recommendation

    i am considering 1 of the 3 following charters for halibut:

    1) Afishunt Charters
    2) D&M
    3) Saltwater Adventures

    anyone have any 1st hand experience with any of them? btw, i am realistic so i expect the fish to average 20 pounds.

    pm me if you have negative experience to share.

    thanks in advance!

    Here is another recommendation to add to your list:

    Chihuly's Charters (http://www.ptialaska.net/~chihuly). These guys are some of the Deep Creek pioneers and run an awesome trip. They have anything from a 6 pak boat to a 32 footer. I have fished with them on many occasions and have always come home with fillets and completely enjoyed the trip. I haven't heard what their prices are for this year quite yet, but they have been less expensive than most others running out of Deep Creek. I have not fish with the others, but I know that they have been around for a while as well.

    Good luck

      never used them, but...

      I have used Kenai riverbend resort. Total of 6 fishers, everyone limited out easy.

      I have used catch-a-lot. My wife and I both limited easily.

      Both boats limited quickly with fish averaging about 30 lbs. Each boat caught 1 over 75 lbs.
      I would recommend both.

        I have gone out with fishhunt I was not happy with them. I like Bottom Line charters.

            I fished with Barry at Saltwater Adventures 3 years in a row. He is a fantastic guy to fish with. The first year we had a spectacular year and brought home some great fish. Biggest was maybe 60 pounds, but smallest was probably 35-40 as well. The second two years the fish were a little smaller, but we got pushed off the water very quickly by weather too. Barry tried hard for us and was enjoyable to fish with. Didn't get down to fish with him last year, but will try to again this year.
            Never count your days, but rather, make all of your days count.

              I have been out with Barry as well. My buddy has used him for years. I found him to be honest and a hardworking guide. Best of luck.

                Halibut fishing in Ninilchik

                I would recommend Chihuly charters. They run three boats and the guys are nice and provide great service. Their rates are good, and the boats are large and fast.

                  taking heavenly charters

                  I booked Heavenly Sights at the boat show last month....I almost booked ninilchik charters when they had thier buy one get one free during xmas....that was a good deal that I will jump on next year.

                  Heavenly threw in free fish packaging and discounted 25/person when 4 booked - so hopefully we can use up some of thier vacuum bags!

                  I have never fished deep creek, but I did see some pretty good butts hanging when I was passing through to fish for kings.

                      Vader Charters!!!

                      I can't believe anyone didn't mention Vader Charters. I have been out with several charters in that area and haven't had any notably bad experiences but the great experiences I remember were with Captain Tim on "The Vader".

                        Catch-a-lot I know

                        I have used Kenai riverbend resort. Total of 6 fishers, everyone limited out easy.

                        I have used catch-a-lot. My wife and I both limited easily.

                        I personally know the guys at Catch-a-lot and have always done well with them. I don't know the others that have been listed here.

                        Good luck with them butts!

                          I strongly agree with sdf about fishhunt.
