Our captain, Ted, and deckhand, Anna were great! We wanted big halibut and we got them. We limited out on those and also caught rock fish and a lingcod. It was well worth the cost and we wile joy eating our catch for many months.

We plan to fish in late June - we wanted to get a 'combo' trip for both Salmon & Halibut - How many is the 'limit' you can keep on both? Also - I see there are two processing/freezing places - are they both the same costs/quality? We plan to fly out the day after charter and will take our boxed frozen fish on the plane - THANKS for any info.
