The Local Guy Charters
We are a small family operated company that offers a wide variety of options. ?Salmon and Halibut fishing, Whale watching or a full day adventure to one of Alaska’s hidden treasures – Tracy Arm Fjord.
A little about your Captain – My name is Adam Underwood I was born and raised in Southeast Alaska. With over 35 years of being on the water, a few of which were before I could walk! I married a local gal who I went to school with. We have 2 kids one is in college, and one who will be works as my deckhand when he is not playing Baseball. Prior to starting the Charter business I was a Youth Detention Officer for the State of Alaska and my wife is a Local Police Detective.
I come from a family with a long history of being on the water. My father commercially hand trolled for salmon around Hoonah in the 70’s, numerous uncles who have, and, currently commercial fish. My grandfather Peter Warner owned and operated “Warner’s Marina” in Juneau for decades. If you’re walking around downtown Juneau, look for “Warner’s Warf” which is named after his grandfather.
I stated my current profession at 13 years old when I got my first boat – a 14 foot Lund skiff. “Best way to learn how to read the water!”
?Since then I have, operated and/or worked on vessels ranging from 20 to 165 feet in various parts of Alaska. Most notably is the 8 months I spent in Dutch Harbor patrolling in the Bering Sea with the Alaska State Troopers!
?After years of fishing and boating with his family and friends I decided to get my official United States Coast Guard Captain’s license as a way to share my love and passion of the water with others.
I am looking forward to sharing the magnificent beauty of our local water with you and your party. All of our trips are private. So you ultimately have control of how you want your adventure to go!!!
