Captain Max Shifler M/V Big Easy

USCG masters 100 ton captain, 8th season fishing out of Homer

Max learned how to fish the Lower Cook Inlet and Kachemack Bay from some of the best in the business. Specializing in taking families and friends on halibut/salmon charters, he prides himself not only on the catch, but the well-being of his passengers and their overall experience.  He believes Homer is one of the greatest places on earth and feels privileged to be able to share it with others.

Buttwhackers Filleting Services

Buttwhackers is the premier filleter in Homer, Alaska for sport caught fish, and George & Ayjan are the masters of Fillet and Release! They will assist you by hanging your catch on a rack so you may take pictures. Then they will perfectly fillet your fish while putting on a show. If you prefer to process the fillets yourself, they will simply be bagged. Otherwise, Buttwhackers will contact the fish processor of your choice to have your fillets vacuum packed and frozen. We provide filleting services free of charge for every customer who books with Alaska Saltwater Adventures. 

Local processors can arrange for FedEx shipping, Cold Storage, or even prepare your boxes for your return flight home. All processing services will be a separate expense. The following are companies we recommend:

Coal Point Seafoods -
