We hope every single one of YOU had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hello from Big Blue Charters!

If you are anything like we are, when you get around family and friends, ‘Talk’ occurs and usually that means about things we’ve done OR things we’d like to do . . .like …FISHING! 

We have had some very positive news about our upcoming 2020 season and we would love to share all these fishing experiences to come, . . .with YOU! 

We haven’t changed our procedures in that we still house most of our guests at Totem Square Hotel and Marina because of the very nice accessibility of their private dock, for our boats. We still go out at 6:00 a.m. every morning and bring you back a bit before 4:00 p.m.

Changes are things that do happen, but we like to bank on things that we’ve done in the past . .. and Work! So please call and ask your questions if you have them, or know from the past that you’re going to be in good hands.

We’ve heard that King Salmon limits for Non-Residents will be UP this year which is WONDERFUL to know, along with the fact that Halibut sizes have also changed . . .no longer is it 38 inches and under but maybe 42 inches and under . . and as we all know, every inch counts!

Sitka... regardless of ‘how much’ or ‘how many’, is always a place that lures you back. . .its beauty, its calm, its FUN, its people (us.. !!!). . . Our job has never been a “job” it’s been a gift . . we get to do what we love the most and share it with YOU! 

We’d love to have you come and have an experience that will always shine in your memories . . please give us and YOU, an opportunity to do just that!

Remember! You can “smoke” last year's Salmon to make room for more this upcoming year . . maybe even have some for Thanksgiving Dinner next year!

With Blessings and the Best of the Holiday Wishes, to ALL!
Mike and Karen Keating
