ShoreTrips says...

Nothing personal, gentlemen, but we know that a company run by a woman is a sure sign of passion and excellence. This Alaskan native spent 9 years in the Merchant Marine and has fished commercially for halibut, bottom fish and ran her boat as a commercial salmon troll vessel before shifting her focus to sportfishing. She helped pioneer the feeder king fishery in Homer and now has single-handedly used her extensive knowledge to develop a viable feeder fishery in Resurrection Bay. Be careful because she loves to catch fish even more than her guests.

This fishing charter, unlike many in the area, takes out only 6 people. It is easy to find those boats carrying double digits but that is not what this fisherman wants. You will find top-of-the-line custom, hand-built rods and tournament grade tackle for our guests. Fish are bled as soon as they are caught and immediately placed in slush ice to preserve their fine quality. Filleting, packaging, freezing and shipping of your fish is available from local businesses. For your convenience, hunting licenses, sportsfishing licenses and king salmon stamps are available for purchase onboard.

The boat is a 53' x 17' professional salmon trolling vessel with spacious accommodations for up to six passengers. It utilizes state-of-the-art fish finding and navigational equipment:
American Pioneer sonar & bottom sounders
Nobletec electronic plotting chart system with Northstar GPS
Furuno 7040D 48 mile ranger radar
A wide assortment of VHF, CB, & SSB radios
Furuno weather fax
Our safety gear far exceeds charter industry standards. Upkeep of the Florette C. is continuous and the vessel is exceptionally clean and attractive throughout. We have a full bathroom and laundry facilities. The vessel is well insulated and our guests stay comfortably warm all year round.

Expect Spawner King Salmon (chinook) May through July ~ Silver Salmon (coho)
Mid-June through late September ~ Red Salmon (sockeye) Late April through Early June ~ Chum Salmon (keta) Early April through June ~ and Halibut / Rockfish, we troll for these species and do not target them by the traditional methods.

• Please note: The Federal Government has placed new limits on halibut fishing this year and has limited it to 1 fish per person and no larger than 37 inches, making fish about 22 pounds or less for the largest keeper. If you fish for halibut, we will practice catch and release.
