    Tanaku Lodge is looking for dynamic people for our sport-fishing boat captain positions.

    Our captains are assigned a boat from our fleet that they typically use for the duration of the season but it can vary.  Your job as a captain is to ensure your clients catch fish and have an entertaining time doing it.  Conversing with guests and helping them with fishing techniques ensures they have a fantastic time.  Some of our guests have been clients for many years so they quickly become your old friends.

    Learning the area and where to fish when and for which species is covered in our pre-season training.  Typically our boats fish for 2-3 species in a day. (salmon, halibut and different types of rock fish and lingcod )  

    You will be expected to learn all the area fishing regulations.

    Our Captains are the leaders in processing fish in our fish room after you return to the dock.

    You will need to be able to preform basic maintenance on your boat each week.

    You will also be training your deckhand and ensuring our clients needs are met. Working together to provide the ultimate fishing experience that the "Tanaku Difference" is known for.

    As our season is a short 3 1/2 months and our typical week consists of 5 days fishing and 2 days maintenance but this can vary as business levels dictate. Crew fishing occurs during maintenance days.


    Requirement: Must have a Near Coastal 6-Pack License or Near Coastal Masters. 

    Knowledge of fishing for Halibut and Salmon is preferred but not required.
