Catch the Fishing Bug with us About Fishing Bug Charters

Aaron is a 20 year Alaska Resident and has been fishing since the day he set foot in the State. He grew up running around the woods on his parent's property and learned to hunt and fish at a young age. Aaron is one of the State's premier jet boat captains, operating on several rivers that don't see another boat other than ours for many year stretches. He also holds Alaska Registered Guide/Outfitter License #1259 and operates one of the premier guided hunting operations in North America.
