About O’Fish’ial Charters in Alaska

Success here is not about getting bites or even catching your limit, although you will. In most cases it’s not even about catching the biggest fish of your life. Halibut on ‘the smaller side’ are often bigger than any fish you’ve ever caught! Alaska halibut charters often use bait bigger than fish kept on fishing charters in other parts of the country! Success for us is not measured by multiple hook ups… At times, we will have every angler on the boat with a 20-pound fish on the line and that will be a signal to us that it is time to move to a better spot to get to the bigger fish.

Our goal is to give you the best possible fishing experience of your life. Alaska’s waters are still full of big fish and we target them by going beyond where the bulk of the other charters are willing to go. To O’Fish’ial Charters, it is worth going the extra mile and spending the extra time to catch quality fish for our customers. We go the distance, so you have the best chance possible of catching the bigger fish. Again, see our reviews; they paint a clear picture of our Charter.

One of the greatest things about Alaska fishing is the beauty that surrounds you while you are waiting for your next fish. Alaska’s snow-capped mountains and lush green hillsides are spectacular. You will be spending the day in Alaska’s unspoiled natural beauty. For most of the summer, whales and porpoise provide spectacular shows.  Many other marine life and sea birds are seen everyday. Puffins, octopus, jellyfish, sea lions, otters await your arrival to the Sea.

O’Fish’ial specializes in Trophy Fish Hunts venturing long range targeting catching multiple species. We catch many Trophy Halibut and a number of variety of Rockfish (Trophy Yellow-Eye was plentiful in 2019). Year round, we fish pristine Alaskan Salmon. We use different tackle and techniques for each species; trolling, drifting and on anchor. We supply all the equipment and instructions to enable our customers to both hook, reel and ultimately land all species of trophy-sized fish.  Our knowledgeable captains and crew are both patient and courteous. They are happy to assist you as needed to ensure a great time. Our success is measured in your catch, your experience and your satisfaction. I guess you could say we do all the dirty work!

Our experienced crews enjoy fishing with both the “Avid Fishermen” and “First Timers.” Fishing for each species is different, so we will take the time to explain our best practices and techniques to help you succeed. We aim to tailor the trip to the anglers’ reservation and will do our best to give you the opportunity to limit out, so don’t be afraid if you have never caught a fish before. Our crew knows how to bring a first timer to fish as well as to hold back to let the experienced angler fight his trophy to the surface. We encourage our anglers to ask for help when you need it and to ‘learn’ the why and how we fish on the boat so that you can continue to build from our knowledge and build confidence each time you return to fish with us!
