Seward Fishing Charters
Pacific Fishing Inc. (PFISH) is a leader in the Seward Charter Fishing industry. With over 25 years of experience, our captains and crews not only know how to put our clients on fish but are renowned for their exceptional customer service. Our Seward Fishing Charters are built for fishermen and women of all skill levels and a variety of charter options are available. PFISH is also one of the few local crews that target the little known but plentiful and prolific saltwater King Salmon runs in the area. Our 33-foot custom built Peregrine Carolyn is one of the largest, fastest, most comfortable "six-pack" vessels in the fleet! The new Someday (pictured below) is another hard-to-find Peregrine and is our newest addition to the fleet. Her 31+ feet offer PFISH crews the ability to create six more smiling faces each day and you can read about them by visiting the "Boats" page.
We hope that you’ll find our website a friendly informational tool although we cannot emphasize enough the importance of a phone call or email to answer additional questions and get to know us. Please feel free to ask for references! You can also check out our new "sister" website: www.sewardfishingcharters.com
Our daily Seward fishing charters are the most popular trips for the traveling or casual angler! We mainly operate the halibut-salmon-lingcod-rockfish combos that make our waters so famous, however in the heat of silver blitz we do offer half day salmon charters as well. Capt. Tat of PFISH is also widely recognized for his expertise in targeting saltwater kings in May, June and July.
The two most popular options are listed below and further detail is provided on our "Alaska Fishing Packages" page. All packages include lodging.
Our most popular package! Three days and two nights at either Port Ashton Lodge or Jumping Salmon Lodge, both on remote Evans Island in Prince William Sound. While mainly an offshore fishing trip targeting king/silver salmon, giant halibut, lings and rockfish that ads numerous hours of "lines in the water" by eliminating so much travel time, there are also “after-hours” activities available including beach fishing, kayaking, hiking, salmon hatchery tours and photography. Please see the "Packages" page for additional information.
Another very popular package that ads fresh water fishing to the package above and includes 5-days, 4-nights in an extravaganza that will put you on both salt (Seward/Prince William Sound) and fresh water (Kenai/Kasilof Rivers) for the best all-around fishing in Alaska, period!
Many other custom "Build-Your-Own" package options are available.
"I've been fishing Alaska for about 8 years and catching fish has never been an issue. What makes or breaks my 'experience' is the boat, or specifically, the Captain and Crew of the boat. After 3 years of fishing the waters of Seward I found Tat and his boat, and the 'Experiences' have been great. I've been out with Tat 3 times and I've sent friends and family to him. What makes me loyal to Tat is that when I've been dealing with him he's another fisherman who has the same goal as I do - Let's catch some fish and have a great time doing it. This is NOT like booking with a huge company that wants to get you out and back in as fast as possible, merely making sure you have your limit and thinking you'll be happy with that. Tat has taken the time to to engage the persons on the boat, talk about fishing and we all have input of the goal of what we want to catch and the best way to make that the experience we want. Honestly, if all you want is fish, got to J-Dock and buy some fish, but if you're a fisherman or someone looking for a fishing 'Experience', my boy Tat is the way to go. I'm not a paid spokesperson, as I may sound, but I'm a person who looks forward to my yearly fishing experience to Alaska almost every day of the year, and if it means as much to you, as it does me, then Tat should be your Captain. Getting to Alaska isn't cheap, so if you're going to do it, then do it right." Todd Opacinch
"The best Charter service we fish with! Tat Tatterson knows his business and always finds the fish. He is an excellent Captain. We have fished with Tat in Alaska and Mexico and will do so again this year and into the future. He and his crew are fun to fish with and very professional and friendly. If you want to have a trip of a lifetime and catch fish book your next charter with pacificfishing.us.These guys are great.Good luck and tight lines." - Bob and Laura from Pennsylvania
"I took my two sons to Seward to catch fish and have a great time doing it. I can't say enough about the great time we had on the water with Tat and his crew Leslie, who were just fabulous. Tat put us on fish ever day and we left Seward with limits of silvers and halibut each of the 3 days we fished. Tat is an extremely knowledgeable Captain with plenty of experience in the waters around Seward and the outer islands. If you're looking to catch fish and really have fun doing it, I'd sign up to fish with Tat and crew on his boat the Carolyn. By the way, when the seas get a little bumpy on the outside, I want to be on the Carolyn!" - Mike, Andy & Cooper from Pasadena, CA
"This year was our second trip with Tat. Both times we loaded up on Halibut and King Salmon. My new favorite sound is 200' of line stripping off the reel after a King hooks up. This year Tat suggested we spend 2 nights at Port Ashton Lodge in Prince William sound. This gives you a lot more fishing time as the lodge is 2 hours closer to the best fishing spots. These guys know what they are doing. Thanks to Tat and crew for a memorable trip. They have me considering a trip to Mexico in the winter and our group is already talking about a return engagement in Seward next year." - Brad Thomas, Denver, CO

Greetings from the Northland! We have a non-fishing (technically speaking) related news item... regarding the 2016 season. This current season (2015) we were lucky enough to partake in the Grand Re-Opening of Jumping Salmon Lodge (JSL) on Evans Island in Prince William Sound. JSL is under new ownership/management and will henceforth be regarded to by us as the "Luxury" remote accommodations option on our "Packages" webpage. In effort to not directly compete with our close friends across the bay at Port Ashton Lodge (PAL), JSL has pumped a bunch of time, money and effort back into the facilities in order to offer a pretty dang unique experience... and the reviews from our clients are outstanding, same as PAL has been for the past ten years or so. Both lodges (and their crews) have their own personalities and are pretty much run by folks born to do the job. The doubling in lodging space couldn't have come at a better time as PFISH continues to expand our fleet and each season these remote lodge trips are more and more sought after by our clients. Keep up the good work all!!!
Great news from the King Front: Not only are biologists calling for a strong return of king salmon in our region's watershed's, but fishing for them has been fantastic since March. Rumors of 18 fish brought to the boat in 40 minutes have been verified, by non-fishermen (which is important in our industry:)... beating our personal record of limiting with 12 kings in 50 minutes (including two triples and three doubles). Off the Montague shelf we intercept kings bound for the Kenai, Kasilof, Copper, Suisitna and dozens of other freshwater systems. Come join us on the quest for more defensive records.
After years of waiting we've finally located another Peregrine to add to the fleet. Someday is a 31-foot Sportfisher built by Alaskans for Alaska. Her twin 240hp Yanmars will get this solid, heavy vessel on the fish just like our flagship Carolyn. We're spoiled, when working on the world's toughest oceans we want the world's toughest boats; and there is no match to a Peregrine in a 6-pack size vessel, period!
