Big Jim’s Charters
, AK 99801, United States
Big Jim’s Charters has been a local favorite for 20 plus years in Juneau, Alaska, as these guys go the extra mile for everyone. They know the hot spots for Salmon and Halibut, and will utilize the boat’s equipment to the maximum to provide a successful trip and an exciting experience. They operate May 1st to October 1st!
Big Jim’s Charters are operated by Captain Mike, who’s been fishing for over 30 years and is as passionate about it today as he was when he first started. His goal is not only to take you to where the fish are but to also teach you how to reel them in. This is exactly what sets him apart from most. Before each trip, Captain Mike will provide a brief but thorough tutorial on how to reel in, so you can start your journey feeling positive.
You will fish aboard a 35 foot Luhrs express cruiser boat, powered by two 330 HP Cummings engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots. The boat is equipped with a private head, all safety equipment as well as radar, chart plotters, and electric downriggers.
Big Jim’s Charters can pick you up or meet you at the Fisherman’s Bend Marina where you’ll start your nearshore and offshore adventure. When you fish for Salmon, you will slow troll, one rod per angler. And when fishing for Halibut, you will drift and jig off the bottom, also using one rod per angler. This way, everyone will get to fish and have a chance of catching themselves a nice dinner.
Once you return to the dock, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for dinner, and the rest can be beheaded and gutted. Captain Mike will recommend a processing plant that can store your fish until you are ready to have it sent to your home address.
All charters include sightseeing and whale watching while fishing, all baits and top of the line rods and reels. The boat is loaded up with plenty of snacks, bottled water and sodas - both diet and regular, as well as lunches on the 6 and 8 hours trips. You will be able to buy your fishing license onboard.

I booked this trip for a brother in-law who is an avid fisherman. Myself I don’t fish much. He went on his own. He enjoyed it thoroughly! Captain and crew very pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable. Being from Pennsylvania himself he felt well taken care of, and most importantly, safe.
