We booked our fishing charter with Captian Larry and Captian Joey took us out. She was great! She was waiting when we got off the ship and got us to the boat. There was a problem with the billage pump. She had to get it working before we could leave the dock but she got right to it. She got it up and running in a matter of minutes and we were on our way. As soon as the lines were in the water we had our first fish on. There were five of us on board and we all caught fish. We caught 21 salmon between the 5 of us, plus 3 kings that she had to knock off before we got them in the boat (season was closed). We had a great time fishing. On the way back we saw some whales. I read many reviews of several charters before booking ours. I think I made the right choice. Thanks Captian Joey!

Larry was ALL ABOUT catching fish. Literally had gotten poles in water and explaining things to us when two poles hit. He handled the stress of it well and allowed us to do our own fishing, which is something I did not experience with another group in another town. So really appreciated that and his,professionalism and next time plan on renting the whole boat to ourselves!! I believe the pricing was actuallybetter than any other charter we looked at also. Thanks again Larry for some great fishing!

Our family went Salmon fishing with Larry on August 2nd, 2017. He said, "The fishing has been slow as of late!". He took us to a spot he knew of and within 10 minutes we had a double. Two fish on at once! The rest of the day was very steady with everyone on board catching throughout the day.

He was good to share advice, techniques and some good stories of past trips. His boat was well equipped with communication and safety equipment. He provide refreshments and kept everyone safe.

The process to ship the fish home that we caught was explained and executed perfectly. Our freezer is full of fresh and smoked Salmon.

We highly recommend Larry and would go with him again.

The five members of my family were the only people on Captain Larry's Charter. He met at our boat as we got off and we walked two minutes to where his boat was docked. We filled out our fishing licenses as we rode out of the marina area and we were fishing in 20 min. We caught 15 pinks and 1 silver salmon in the 4 hr period and lost a few more from our lines. From listening to the other charters on the radio, they weren't catching much. Captain Larry was very knowledgeable and professional. He dropped us back at our boat and took our catch to be processed and shipped to our home, which we are enjoying immensely now . All the members of our family had the best time of our lives and this fishing trip was the highlight of our vacation!!!

Captain Larry took us on a great fishing trip! We caught 7 silver salmon and 9 pinks!

It was so much fun!

Very accommodating, and helped a bunch of amateurs catch Fish!

Gotta do this if you are in Ketchikan?
