Catch A Lot Charters
Michael Patterson, owner and operator of Catch A Lot Charters, is a 4th generation Alaskan and has been an avid fisherman all of his life. Michael’s family moved to Alaska during the 1800’s gold rush and settled in Fairbanks, Alaska. They later relocated to Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage, where they have lived ever since.
Michael’s family began commercial and sport fishing the Cook Inlet basin in 1910. For generations they have passed down the local knowledge and expertise gained from literally thousands of fishing days focused on these local waters.
This passion was definitely passed down to Michael. His love of fishing started out at the age of 3 when his father George helped him land his first salmon, which turned out to be a 30 lb king. From there he spent all of his young life trekking and fishing Alaska every day and everywhere he could.
In 1993 Michael became an Alaska halibut fishing guide and started Catch A Lot Charters. Operating an Alaska fishing charter was a perfect way for him share his love for Alaska fishing with hundreds of guests each summer. For the past 21 years “Capt Mike” has been a full time Alaska fishing charter boat captain and has achieved a 100 Ton Masters License from the United States Coast Guard. His knowledge, experience, and love of fishing the waters of Cook Inlet are something he loves to share with others. These qualities mixed with a contagious joy and positive attitude is why people return to fish with him year after year.
“I have been deep sea fishing 6 times now and last summer’s trip was by far the best. I have fished the Pacific off Hawaii once, 3 times out of the gulf of Mexico and once with Catch-A-Lot. The Halibut that I got to experience catching last year was totally awesome and amazing. Mike is an awesome captain and guide and I will always refer you guys to anyone going on a Halibut charter.”› More Testimonials
