Levi W.  (Kenai River & Homer Fishing Trips)

Great times on the ocean and the river last week! Boo fishes hard to try to get everybody the fish they are after! Hope to make it back to Alaska again in the future, and hope to get the pleasure of fishing with this charter again!

Carol G.  (Homer Fishing Charter)

The best day of fishing spent with a knowledgeable and experienced crew. Boo and crew will be a part of any fishing trip we make to Alaska. Thank you!

Matt L.  (Kenai River Fishing Trip)

Captain Boo Kandas was a fabulous guide on the Kenai River. He has an abundant sense of humor and was enjoyable to be around for the day. He put us on great big silvers and a ton of pinks that my teenage daughter and friend were hauling in left and right.

We had a great day fishing with John Tobin and Kevin out of Homer. Also got to fish with a great group of friends both old and new. Can't wait to go out again! We had a blast!!!

Thank you so much to Tall Tale Charters and to our Captain John and First Mate Kevin for a great time and of course to Chelsie S. for the hook up! And my amazing hubby Phillip for this adventure and the many more that will come our way!

BEST CREW IN HOMER - Captain John Tobin and deck hand Kevin made our deep sea fishing excursion a wonderful experience. I started right off telling Kevin I was scared and he gently guided us through a full day of adventure on the Gulf of Alaska. I highly recommend Tall Tale Charters.

By far my favorite fishing charters in Alaska! I have fished multiple charters on the Kenai Peninsula during the past four years. Captain Boo, Captain John and Kevin are great fishermen and they know how to have a good time. Can't wait for my next trip!

Best day ever! The fishing boat and weather were both fantastic. John and Kevin are great. Thanks so much! Even Alex [an Alaska fishing guide] was excited about fishing on his day off! Hah. He also provided entertainment for the day! The fishing is so much better out of Homer than Seward! Alex hadn't been in many years and was happily surprised!

Lynn T.  (Kenai River & Homer Fishing Trips)

If anyone wants an awesome fishing experience in Alaska, these are the guys to use. They have amazing talent and knowledge to put you on the best places to fish and they are a great group of people to spend time with. So very entertaining! They go above and beyond to make your trip awesome in every way possible! 5 star!!!!

Karlie W.  (Homer Fishing Charter)

You guys are so amazing!!! I constantly think back to that day on your boat and reeling in that giant halibut!!! You helped in making my #1 bucket list come true. It was such a great day I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you for being so awesome!!!

I've fished with these folks 15 times and every experience has resulted in tons of memories and lots of fillets. The fact that they can get you on 4 species of fish (using only artificial bait) in a one day charter is a testament to their attention to detail. Keep up the great work Boo, John, and Kevin!

Mike S.  (Homer Fishing Charter)

Hey Boo, just want to let you know what a great time we had yesterday. You have a top notch charter. I hope we behaved well enough to fish with you again next year. My son-in-law said it was the best trip he's had. Thanks again!

James R.  (Homer Fishing Charter)

I've been on many different charters growing up, (this was 2nd charter in Alaska) this however, was the best! Hands down on all levels. Great equipment, great captain and deckhand, highly recommend!!

Jim S.  (Homer Fishing Charter)

OMG! What a fabulous trip we had last Friday. Total blast! My crew and your crew hit it off in the first 15 minutes. The fun continued all day long. True professionals that can really entertain ...oh yea and they know a thing or two about fishing. The fish was a bonus for us. The trip, the friendly environment, great weather, and great seas were more than worth the price of admission. We can go buy fish, but to bond with employees and clients is priceless. The single best team-building day of my career.

Thanks so very much for a wonderful day.

I hope that you are having a good fall. We are having parent/teacher conferences in Wyoming. I had some parents come in last night that moved here from Alaska. The dad goes fishing in Alaska two times a year still. I told him about my trips and who we go through. He told me that you are referred to in Alaska as the "Fish Whisperer!!!"

Small World!!!

Jim F.  (Homer Fishing Charter)

I have fished worldwide, and this was by far the best trip ever!

Our trip out of Homer with John and Kevin was fantastic! We were on the fish from the first drop of lines, and it never stopped! I can honestly tell you, this was the best trip of any type I have ever experienced in the eight years I've been coming to Alaska. My nephew was the one who caught the HOG, and he said this trip was a ca-gillion times better than last year (on a different charter) ! So I just wanted to thank you, John and Kevin once again for giving my family a trip they will never forget!

Levi R.  (Homer Fishing Charter)

I just wanted to thank you again... I had a blast! I have always wanted to visit Alaska, and it is everything and more than what I had pictured!

 Our clients say...

Richard B. - If any of you go to Alaska, book your trip with Boo and John. You will have a great time!

Kevin L. - ...We fished with you on an ocean charter in 2012 and had a great trip. My wife and I are coming to Alaska for the summer and would like to fish with you again...

Larry W. - Good fishing!!
