About SJS Fishing Charters

San Juan Sportsman Fishing Charters is located in the heart of the San Juans, so you spend more time fishing!  Our charters depart from your choice of locations, inluding Friday Harbor, Roche Harbor, & Snug Harbor.  If you have a special request for a departure location (all islands, private dock, etc.) let us know, and we will work with you.

Captain Chuck Payne is USCG-certified, with over 23 years experience fishing the San Juans.  Chuck's passion is ensuring you are safe, comfortable, having fun, and most importantly - catching fish!

Aboard our 2008 North River Seahawk, you will find 225 Yamaha 4-stroke engines, late-model and professionally-maintained fishing gear, all of your bait, and everything else you need to have a fun and successful charter.   Chuck takes pride in offering you the fishing adventure you expect, including preparation of your catch.
