A Memorable, Hands-On Fishing Charter Experience on Seattle’s Puget Sound
Whether you’ve got years of salmon fishing experience or you’ve never held a fishing pole, A Spot Tail Salmon Guide offers an unparalleled experience. Captain Keith Robbins has been fishing on the Puget Sound for nearly 30 years in Seattle. That means from the best places to cast your fly, to great spots for beginners to bottom fish, to picturesque views for sightseeing and sea burials, he knows where to take you. Unlike most Seattle fishing charters, we provide each angler with their own rod and teach an active approach that lets you feel the pull of a bite and reel in your own catch. Our specialty is mooching for salmon on private and group tours. We also offer Seattle fly fishing, bottom fishing, sightseeing tours and sea burials. Located less than 7 miles north of downtown, you won’t find a Seattle fishing charter closer to the city center. The best way to experience the Seattle is from the water, so plan your nautical adventure today.
Seattle Fishing Charters
We offer a variety of Seattle fishing charters and our fishing methods will depend on the target species. For Salmon fishing we go with light tackle mooching. Mooching is a local technique where you will hold the rod, feel the bite, and set the hook yourself. We prefer this method because it’s an active experience intended for anglers who like to cast, hold their own rod and feel the fish strike. By the time you get off the water you’ll be an experienced moocher. Our Seattle fly fishing is done from a boat, typically near the shorelines, in very shallow water. We fish both top-water and sinking flies, using both floating and sinking lines. A favorite method of experienced fisherman, saltwater fly fishing is just like freshwater fly fishing; you’ll cast and strip your line, and the further you cast, the more fish you’ll catch. Our Seattle fishing guide service targets Sea-Run Cutthroat Trout year-round, plus Steelhead, Dolly Vardon, and different species of salmon including Chinook, Coho, Humpback, and Chum. In addition to incredible fishing, you get to enjoy gazing at the bountiful wildlife that fill our waters while fishing Seattle.

“…We all agreed that a day on the water rarely comes in such a fine form. Your professionalism, instructional methods, and company as a person and a fisherman were enjoyed by all… I look forward to future outings on your vessel.”
“Salmon fishing with Captain Keith was the best experience we have had on the Puget Sound. My two sons (9 and 5) brother and father had a blast and were all on fish. Could not have picked a better guide or location. Highly recommended.”
“Keith is the man! He was able to teach a beginner like me how to catch some salmon on the Sound. Very patient after I messed up my line over and over again and very good at finding fish to catch… everybody on board caught one! …”
“…Just a short note of thanks for an unbelievable day of fishing… it was truly a pleasure to be on board a boat so well outfitted and organized… You run a very good operation. We appreciate very much your generosity and thoughtfulness…”
“Our captain, Keith, was a patient and knowledgeable teacher, sharing with those on board the nuances to mooching for salmon… A nice bonus was that we saw a humpback whale, porpoises, sea lions, and tons of birds. It was amazing.”
