Meet the Captain

I am Derek Floyd. I have been married to my lovely wife Julie since 1998. We have 2 great kids- Emma and John who keep me busy when I am not fishing. I have been a saltwater fishing guide since 1993. I am the owner/operator of Reel Class Charters out of Sitka Alaska. I established it in 1994. We currently run 5 boats( around 20 anglers per day) during the months of May- mid September. I have chosen to start up another fishing business- Anglers Choice Charter Service. This Service will provide anglers the opportunity to fish in the Puget Sound Region, specifically the San Juan Islands during the months of October-April. I have participated in this fishery for the past 6 or 7 years with some recorded success. I would like the opportunity to pass on some of this success to you- the recreational angler. I feel I understand the concepts of saltwater fishing very well. I recognize weather,tides and currents, and fishing locations for salmon to ambush the baitfish. I also feel I am conscience of the anglers needs onboard from the smaller creature comforts to their total fishing experience. I look forward to having the opportunity of passing on some of my knowledge as well as passions of fishing by providing you a first class fishing experience.

Derek with a nice “Winter King”

Respectfully- Derek Floyd
