Captain
Bob Savino & Noah Wamsteker

Member since August 2018 Seward, United States
Background
Growing up, I always had a passion for fishing. Being born and raised in Central Florida, I was always surrounded by some of the best fresh and saltwater fishing that the world had to offer. In 2008 I started working for an elite Alaskan charter outfit, Saltwater Safari Company. Starting as a deckhand on their vessels, I spent 4 seasons on deck followed by 5 seasons operating there vessels, the Legend & Legacy. In 2012 at the age of 22, I optioned my Merchant Mariners credentials as Master of Vessels up to 100 gross tons. Eventually in 2016 i merged with the Saltwater Safari Company and purchased a boat and started my own charter outfit, Anchor Down Sportfishing LLC. When the summer season in Alaska comes to an end, I spend my winters back down in Florida where I guide tours in the Everglades. Also apart of our team is Captain Noah Wamsteker! Captain Noah hails from Mobile Alabama and has been apart of the our company since 2017. Working under Captain Bob predominantly, he had one of the best teachers in the game and learned so much about the fishery and the local knowledge of fishing out of Seward. Captain Noah received his United States Coastguard License as Master of Vessels up to 100 gross tons in 2021 and has been running our boats collectively since then. He's the young gun in our fleet and has quickly earned the nickname "The Alabama Slamma" by being a top producer for our company the past several seasons. His passion for fishing is unmatched and you'll be sure to have a great time fishing with him! Fishing is our passion and we would love to take you into our world and show you the beauty of Resurrection Bay and the Gulf of Alaska! FISH ON!
Techniques
Mostly bottom fishing for halibut. Typically use circle hooks and bait but also like to use artificial jigs. Will generally anchor for most species on some structure, sometimes drift when fishing for salmon or rockfish.
