Be prepared to bump up the hours worked per day to 14-16 if the fish are running. Your best bet is to get up there early and pound the docks. It will be very tough to line something up ahead of time unless you get lucky or know someone up there looking for a hand. I don't want to discourage you but it will not be easy. The next step is to try and make sure you get a decent captain. You could work all summer for a bad one and make diddly or get yourself in a harmful situation. Good luck!

Go to the Northwest Sports Show. There are lots of Alaska Resorts and Charter operations with booths at that show. It would be a good place to start and make some contacts. Many of the tourist towns have websites that have a jobs sections. I know that Seward does.

So you're good with the ladies.....Most of your customers on the boats will have beards and guts. The ladies will be with those guys. lol
