We had an absolutely amazing morning fishing with Captain Joe and Captain Bernie. They were so patient and good with my little one (7 years old) and great with my mother also. The boat was roomy and clean. If we are ever back I would for sure book them again. Thank you guys!!

Well do not go on the Charter, if you have a weak stomach. His first boat was broken down. So his second boat, you cannot use the toilet for solids. I did not hear him say that, at all.Forty five minutes into the charter, my stomach was not feeling well. So, I had to go. Unfortunately there was only one thing to do. Use the broken toilet! After I used it, Joe blew a gasket. He yelled and yelled at me. I did apologize, but that did not matter. It took him only ten minutes to clean up my mess. Then to top it off he threw the Captains Chair down at me. The rest of the charter, I received the cold shoulder. He asked me to steer the boat twice, and I got to reel in the pole just once! I should of asked to go back to shore. I had absolutely no fun, because of Joe’s behavior. I have been on several Charters in my life, this was the worst one for me. The moral of the story was make sure Fat Salmon Charters has working boats. $215.00 out the window, for me. I am sorry, I went on this Charter, and the way I was treated Thanks, for the memories Joe. I will always remember my experience, of you and the broken Charter boats.

Came in to Skagway on Princess Cruise first week of July. About a 3 minute walk from the cruise to Captain Joe and his boat. It was my husband and I that booked the morning charter and there was a total of 4 of us that went out that day. I would highly recommend this to anyone: couples, families, group of friends. Captain Joe is extremely knowledgable about the area and we laughed the entire time. That was only my second time fishing and he made it really enjoyable and fun! That morning between the four of us we caught several large Salmon and we shipped one home. Thank you Captain Joe! This was one of our most favorite days of the entire trip!

Got to ride with Captain Joe and Captain Bernie on our trip to Skagway. The fishing was great. They did an amazing job making sure everyone got involved and got to fish. We were able to catch 6 fish in our morning charter. We did not have this trip planned prior to our cruise but they were able to get us out for an amazing time.
