Alaskan 4 Star Charters

Alaskan 4 Star Charters has been in business since 2000. Its owner Jody Mason has been in Alaska since 1972. As a young man Jody has fished most of Alaska, via the Alaska Highway System. Both freshwater and salt.

Jody started fishing in Whittier in 1977 and fell in love with both its fishing and the sightseeing of the Prince William Sound.

Whittier is perched at the head of Passage Cannel and only one hour south of Anchorage, making it the closest salt water fishing grounds to Anchorage.

Anglers fishing Whittier / Prince William Sound will find all 5 types of Salmon some 15 types of Rockfish, 4 types of Sole and Flounder and of course the mighty Halibut.


When to Fish

Alaskan 4 Star Charters

Early season fishing starts May to mid-June with some fish being caught in the upper reaches of 100 lbs. But most are in the 20's to 50's.

From mid-June to August the Halibut start to come into the sound in larger numbers. As the Salmon start to enter the sound the fishing gets even better. The Halibut feed on the salmon and other fish and this when you will see the larger fish. The largest Halibut landed by AK 4 Star is just under 225 lbs.

On July 1st the Lingcod season opens these fish can reach some 70 lbs, and are some the best eating of all Alaskan salt water fish. Jody has given these fish his own nick name, (funnels with teeth) if you are lucky to land one you will soon find out how and why he calls them that.

Oh and don't forget the Sea Bass; these fish can reach 20+ lbs. This makes for a nice mix in the fish box on board the AK 4 Star. Click the image to the right for a larger view.
