OVERNIGHT COMBINATION FISHING TRIPS

Overnight fishing trips are hands down the most cost-effective way to fill your freezer and have a chance at catching a trophy fish. An overnight trip maximizes your fishing time since we only have to motor to the fishing area once and then we spend the rest of the time fishing! For now, these trips are only offered through a whole boat reservation, not by the seat.


Our night fishing trips typically last 12+ hours.

Max Guests: 6

Base price is for booking May 7th - June 11th.

To book June 12th - September 6th, please see additional cost below.



WHAT TO EXPECT ON OUR TRIPS

Our day trips start at 6pm and we appreciate your timeliness and consideration of others booked on the boat, so we can depart on time. If you have the entire boat booked and want to modify the standard hours, please contact Captain Will at least one day in advance (preferably more) to make arrangements. If our standard hours won't work for you, we will accommodate your needs to the greatest extent possible.


Each trip starts off by loading everyone and their gear onto the boat, recording everyone's fishing license information in the Alaska Department of Fish and Game log book, and conducting a quick safety brief. Once the paperwork is out of the way, we push off and head out for a scenic boat ride to our fishing grounds. Generally, it's anywhere from a 2 1/2 hr - 4 hr ride to where we fish (primarily determined by weather/sea conditions and client priorities). This trip is a great opportunity to take pictures and videos of the beautiful landscapes and wildlife in the Prince William Sound region. It's normal to see Humpback whales, Orcas (killer whales), sea lions, Dall's porpoises, puffins, sea ducks, and other wildlife on the way out.


Once we reach our fishing area, Captain Will performs a quick equipment demonstration before we begin fishing either on anchor or drift fishing, depending on the current, tide, weather, and what type of fishing has been the most productive. From that point on, we will continue to fish and may change locations or methods, depending on the day's bite. If fishing is not productive in a given area, we will not stay put.


After we are done fishing for the day, we begin our journey back to Valdez and keep our eyes open for any marine wildlife. As a long day of fishing and fresh air can make one tired, some clients opt to catch a nap within the Bold Eagle's comfy accommodations. If we see anything of interest on our way back and clients are interested, we will stop to take a look and take some photographs.


Once we arrive back at the dock, we will disembark the vessel and offload gear. At that point, clients may watch us unload their fish or meet us at the fish cleaning area where we will hang and rinse the fish for a great photo opportunity. From there, we will separate your fish and turn you over to the professional dockside fish cleaners. They will cut and clean your fish however you desire for a small, very reasonable fee. The cleaners are good, not to mention fast. It is quite a show to watch these professionals quickly process a day's catch. From that point you have a handful of options from which to choose. You may take your processed fish in a cooler and care for them yourself or wheel them a short distance to one of Valdez's two fish processing shops. Fish Central and Easy Freeze are both ready to assist in all your processing needs and have a wide variety of services, to include professional vacuum packing, flash freezing, storage, shipping, and many more options.

Captain Will retired from the U.S. Air Force in May 2016 after providing military meteorological services for over 20 years. He grew up in Northern Minnesota and has had a passion for the outdoors since he was a child. In 2001, he moved to Alaska while serving on Active Duty and immediately fell in love with all the incredible opportunities the 49th state has to offer. It didn't take long before his love for the ocean grew and he found himself on the water as much as possible. Captain Will's meteorological knowledge, experience fishing Alaskan waters, and his love for sharing what Alaska has to offer makes him the perfect candidate to help you enjoy your next Alaskan adventure.
