Why Choose Fishing In Alaska With The Game Fisher

Private Charters

We specialize in private multiple day Alaska fishing charters & lodging, where you are the only group of anglers at our Alaska fishing lodge, & on our fishing boats.

Our Alaskan Fishing Charters are created specifically with your personal requests in mind.  Your trip is truly custom, so you can let your imagination be your guide.

Fish Alaska salmon & halibut with the same fishing guide!

Captain Mel Erickson owner of Alaskan Gamefisher since 1989 will personally be your Alaska fishing guide for both your Kenai River salmon fishing, and on your saltwater halibut charters on Cook Inlet, at Anchor Point near Homer. Captain Mel Erickson is one of very few Alaska fishing guides that personally guide for both Kenai River Salmon, & Alaska Halibut. This means you will fish both salmon & halibut with the same fishing guide.

People return again and again to fish with Alaskan Gamefisher.  Our experience makes the difference.  We guarantee your satisfaction and can provide numerous references that will be happy to share their own experiences with you.


If you book a private fishing charter for your Alaska fishing adventure you will have the flexibility to change your daily fishing schedule between the Kenai River salmon, & the Anchor Point saltwater salmon, & halibut fishery. Fishing conditions on the Kenai Peninsula change all the time & flexibility is the key to a successful Alaska fishing trip. This means if the fishing or weather is bad in one area you can change to another area at the last moment, No other Alaska fishing charter can offer you that flexibility.

Our vessels

Our Kenai River charter boat is one of the newest, & most comfortable salmon fishing boats on the Kenai River. It is outfitted with adjustable, high back & soft padded Bentley seats with arm rests. The vessel is wider & more spacious than most other Kenai River guide boats. Our Alaska Halibut charter boat the “GAMEFISHER” is a 30 foot by 10 foot wide aluminum vessel with a larger fishing deck than other boats giving you plenty of room to fish from. Our halibut boat is equipped with a full cabin with toilet, heater, & has 8 sealed air chambers for safety, if a chamber gets punctured only that chamber fills with water instead of the entire boat.

Left Handed Reels

The only Alaska charter boat with Left handed fishing reels available. There are no other charter boats on the Kenai Peninsula that offer these reels for left handed anglers. Our salmon & halibut fishing tackle is the best with 2 speed international reels & G-Loomis rods in 15-30 pound class.

The Accommodations

In addition to great fishing with the area’s most experienced guide and top of the line equipment, our Alaska Fishing Resort is a fishing lodge that you’ll find personal, private, and comfortable.  You’ll enjoy making memories of a lifetime with friends and family members during your customized fishing trip, personally guided by Captain Mel Erickson.

Our Alaska fishing lodge is not small cabins, but a very large private 3 bedroom, 3 bath home with complete kitchen, King size beds, BBQ grill, freezer, Along with rubber boots, coolers, & fishing rods for you to use while not on fishing charters.

Full Day Alaska fishing Trips

We do not fish double half day trips like most other Alaska fishing guides on the Kenai Peninsula. Both our salmon & halibut trips are full, single trip days unless other wise requested. That means we don’t have a set time we have to be in at to take another group of anglers out that day.

Many anglers love our combo trips.  Fish for salmon one day and halibut the next.  These combo trips are offered in August when you’re assured of a great catch and a big adventure too.

Boat Mobility

Our Boats are on trailers so we can move up & down the Kenai River wherever the salmon fishing is better. For Halibut fishing we can move where the weather is better if needed. Many times when the wind blows at Anchor Point & Deep Creek we can travel to Homer for halibut fishing in Kachemak Bay.

NO Fuel Restrictions

We do not put distance limits on how far our boats can travel each day to the fishing grounds, we go where the best fishing is regardless of distance, with rising fuel costs many Deep Creek, & Homer halibut fishing charters have put limits on how far their boats can travel.
