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 Carolyn is one of the largest, fastest, most comfortable "six-pack" vessels in the fleet! The Jillian Dawn (pictured below) is our newest addition and her 30+ feet offer PFISH crews the ability to create six more smiling faces each day. You can read about both vessels by clicking their names or 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!
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 Port Ashton Lodge. While mainly an offshore fishing trip targeting king/silver salmon, giant halibut, lings and rockfish, there are also “after-hours” activities available including beach fishing, kayaking, hiking and photography. Please see the "Packages" page for additional information.
Another very popular package including 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.
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

Our "Passive" Protest to
proposed size restrictions! (above)
Happy 2014! We are proud to say that as we begin our 23rd year chasing fish in Alaska, our repeat client base has created enough demand for PFISH to consider adding a 3rd boat to our northern fleet. Our reputation has kept us at the top of our game for many years now and we sincerely appreciate the continued patronage! However, even if you don't choose us, please do yourself a favor and invest due diligence by researching your charter company before booking.
Note: We are looking for four anglers to join a pair on a King Salmon / Halibut mission both June 10-12 and June 13-15 this summer. Each trip is a 3-day, 2-night package trip to Port Ashton Lodge. Please give us a holler for details.
The last day of 2013, wow, that went by quick! A couple of weeks ago I wrote (below) that we had been again blessed with liberal halibut limits however I spoke a little too soon. Turns out that in January the Federal government will make it's final announcement regarding limits. While it appears that we will still get two fish, there is a chance that 2014 will be the first year in which Southcentral Alaska will be restricted to one halibut of any size and one of a size not to exceed "X" number of inches. On the bright side, that is more often than not what happens anyways... one good-sized fish and one "normal" sized fish. Stayed tuned for the final vote on what "X" means, and have a GREAT 2014!
It is OFFICIAL! The "Powers that Be" have deemed us worthy of another year of liberal halibut limits! We are blessed with the ability of each angler to catch and keep two halibut per day of any size again for the 2014 season. No telling how long our luck will last but we'll take it as long as we can. Our neighbors to the south have been heavily regulated in recent years however biomass estimates show a healthy halibut population in our region of Alaska.
Watch a 240 lb. halibut get landed aboard the Carolyn.

PFISH - Mexico
Visit the PFISH Mexico site offering year-round charters in Cabo and La Paz, Baja California, Mexico! 2014 marks the start of our 13th year in the tropics. What started as a good excuse to warm up in the winter and perhaps pay for moorage and maintenance of our southern sportfisher, has grown to become a reputable, multi-vessel, multi-location fleet of professional crews and crafts. Our exhaustive Alaska client list is what got us going and we are now able to see some of our favorite clients/friends twice a year instead of just once. Come on down and erase that line between clients and friends!
