Throughout my life, there's been one consistent passion, and that is fishing.  I inherited my obsession from my Dad. Along the way I've discovered the only activity better than catching a fish is helping someone else land one, and that's why I guide.  Nothing beats the excitement of putting folks on their first king salmon, giant lingcod, or huge halibut. The smile is from ear to ear, you can almost see their hearts pounding through their chests, and their hands shake for an hour afterward in response to the adrenaline. The stories get told and the memories last a lifetime.


In the salmon, we find an awesome blend of color, shape, and unbelievable speed and agility.  Hunting these creatures has been my absolute passion for over 16 years and blood on the decks is what I live for. So come spend a day with Anacortes Highliner Charters in the San Juan Islands of Washington State, and you'll not only experience one of the most beautiful places on the planet, but I'll teach you how and where to fish for these incredible predators.
