J-Dock Fishing Charters in Seward, Alaska, is the best of the best! It has the best boats! It has the best Captains and crew! We fish Ressurection Bay and Prince William Sound, both on all angler’s bucket lists for a place to fish in the world. All this means that your time with J-Dock will be a once-in-a-lifetime fishing charter you will never forget.
J-Dock is a family-run business, and all of the Captains, Deckhands, Packagers, and everyone else are all family. J-Dock has 6 Captains with over 50 years of experience, and they all want nothing more than to put you on the fish all day. No matter your level of experience, an avid angler who has fished for years or a first-time fisherman, with their exceptional Captains and deckhands, J-Dock provides quality service, experience and knowledge to ensure a fantastic time.
Our boats are all state-of-the-art. There are four boats in the fleet. There is the Artic Cat, a 36 ft. Armstrong Marine that can accommodate six anglers, the Predator and Tailwatch, both 40 ft. Armstrong Marines that can host 10 – 12 fishermen. There is also Glacier Bear, a luxury Delta Marine that is used for long-range fishing trips. These boats have the best fish-finding and navigation equipment, heated interiors, bathrooms and full wrap-around decks.
There are four main fish in the Alaskan waters; Halibut, Salmon, Rockfish, and Lingcod. Catching all these in one day is known as “The Grande Slam,” which is a goal for all our Captains. All of J-Docks charters are multi-species. There are Salmon/Rockfish, Halibut/Rockfish, Ling Cod/Salmon/Rockfish, Multi-Species, and six packs. These are all shared charters unless you want to book private charters or parties. There are also long-range fishing options with sleeping arrangements, both on a boat, at a remote lodge, or both. Many of these charters depend on fishing seasons, so call ahead.
The charters have top-of-the-line rods, reels and tackle. J-Dock recommends many layers of comfortable, warm clothing, including socks and waterproof gear, including shoes, because it can get cold in Alaska. You can bring hats and gloves, and because the sun does shine, sunglasses and sunscreen may be helpful. You will also need an Alaska fishing license before heading to sea.
There are waves during your charter, so take Dramamine, ginger pills, or sea sickness medicine.
When you return to the docks, the Captains bring your catch to the hanging station for pictures you can show and brag about. Then the fish is expertly filleted and packaged, ready for you to ship home or take home on the airplane.
A day on the water with the J-Dock family will be a day you will always remember. See why so many of our guests come back year after year.
