Absolutely the best fishing I’ve ever experienced. William and his son were super gracious with our party of six guys. We caught our limit in halibut and a TON of salmon. I would definitely jump back on one of his boats!

Absolute top notch fishing guide! We went out and set shrimp pots, then went fishing for halibut and caught our limit. The knowledge, Support, and Service was second to none. And they have the best boats on the water. We are definitely going back and doing some more fishing.
