There are many great reasons to make Alaska your next fishing vacation destination. And True North Sport Fishing would like to help you create the Alaska Fishing trip of a lifetime. For fourteen years now, we've been providing Gustavus Alaska Fishing Charters, guided deep-sea sport fishing on Southeast Alaska's Inside Passage and coastal waters catering to travelers who seek a high-quality, authentic Gustavus Alaska fishing adventure.
Forrest Braden is the owner of True North Sport Fishing and captains the Endeavor. His professional experience includes 8 years on overnight and long range deep sea fishing boats out of San Diego followed by an additional 28 seasons on local Alaska waters.
He also commercial fishes for halibut and engages in fishery policy work for the Alaska guided recreational fishing industry when not on the water. He enjoys any time he gets with his sweet wife and seven children, as well as church service.
Luke Stamatis complements our team with 19 years of experience as a professional fishing captain and runs the vessel Quicksilver. Luke was born and raised in the coastal town of Santa Barbara, CA and has been on the ocean all of his life. He started working on fishing boats at the age of 11 and worked his way up through the ranks until earning his captain’s license at age 18. Luke knows the ocean, knows boats, and how to put fish on deck!
Luke is an outdoor enthusiast, and when not on the water he enjoys hunting the Intermountain West and spending family time with his wife Katie and their son Ivan.
