Big Jim's Charters

Big Jim's Charters


Can't beat the view! Wouldn't you rather be fishing?
Awesome crew!
With family visiting from Washington we decided a halibut charter would be a perfect way to show them all Alaska has to offer. Captain Dave and his deckhand Annalisa were knowledgeable about the boat, gear, and really made the trip effortless! The Hot Rod was set up perfectly for the four of us and Annalisa to move around on deck. I highly recommend Big Jim Charters to my friends and future visitors.
Just got back from Juneau, and had an awesome fishing trip with Captain David and Ashley. They worked hard to put us on the fish, and made sure we had a great time. I can highly recommend both David and Ashley if you are looking for a great trip.

We just learned that Canada is extending its restriction of allowing cruise ships to make port in Canadian waters until 2/10/2022 which will crush our Sportfishing and sightseeing business in the Juneau and the state of Alaska as 90% of our business is from cruise ship passengers visiting Juneau. I still plan to operate our charter business this season with one boat and we are taking reservations for our season May through September 2021. It’s a good time to come Sportfishing in Juneau as some of our restrictions for Halibut and Salmon have been changed and it’s not crowded on the water.
