Big Jim’s Charters has been in business providing Alaskan adventure and fishing charters for over ten years. Come fish for Kings, Coho’s, Chum, Pinks and Halibut with us and enjoy the scenery of Southeast Alaska from our 34′ LUHRS Sportfisher “Hot Rod”.

Cruise in any sea condition at 25 knots. Enjoy our comfortable heated cabin with a large private head (restroom), with plenty of room for 6 to sit in comfort. Enjoy the 13′ beam with lots of room for everyone to fish. Our twin 330 hp Cummins Diesel’s are equipped with trolling valves to slow troll for Salmon. When fishing halibut, we can anchor up on a good hole, or drift over hotspots.

We use and upgrade our top of line Shimano gear annually. We have gear for 6 anglers, both Halibut and Salmon. We use a combination of artificial lures and herring for bait.

  • Chinook Salmon, otherwise known as Kings, are Alaska’s biggest and most prized Salmon. Kings can be caught year round, but the height of their season is late May through June
  • Coho Salmon, or Silvers, known for their acrobatics and hard fights are a favorite among most Alaskans. They start running in July and peak in late August and early September
  • Chum or Dog Salmon are running June and July and are great smoked
  • Pink Salmon, or Humpies, as they are commonly called start arriving in June and are around until August. They are normally canned and sold in the markets as Pink Salmon
  • Sockeye Salmon or Reds as they are called because they turn red when they spawn, don’t normally eat Herring or bite on artificial lures. The Reds are around in June and July and can be caught by fly fishing with a special lure.
  • Halibut – Our season is from May to September with the fish moving into local waters in June, July and August. We have the required 6 fisherman permits to fish Halibut in Alaska. We use 2 speed reels with 80lb Spectra line and 200lb class rods. We carry jigging gear as well as bait gear. We normally fish 180 to 400 feet. The rules for Halibut limits change each year. Call us for the latest limits at 1-866-BIG-JIMS (866-244-5467).
