Ian Winder – Associate Independent Captain, USCG Licensed
“Teaching new techniques and being a part of the excitement that every trophy brings is what I live for”
Ian offers an entire season of saltwater charters in Westport aboard our 29′ Defiance Pilothouse boats. Throughout the year, Ian can be found chasing halibut, lingcod, albacore tuna, steelhead and salmon. He spends the fall and winter months offering drift boat adventures on the Olympic Peninsula.
I have been a fisherman my entire life as I was raised in a family of Alaska commercial fisherman. Fishing is something I am very passionate about. I love sharing this great sport; introducing people to the wilderness fishing experience, teaching new techniques and being a part of the excitement that every trophy brings is what I live for.
The best part of the day is seeing the huge smiles on my clients’ faces as they catch their first salmon, first steelhead or maybe the biggest fish of their life.
