About Hooky Charters


Hooky Charters offers Alaskan fishing trips on the world famous Kenai River and Cook Inlet. Dave Goggia, owner and operator of Hooky Charters has over 25 years of experience landing these tackle thrashing, line peeling giants! 

Dave caught his first Alaskan king salmon on the Kenai River in 1976, and has been hooked every since. Dave caught a ride with friends until 1980 when he bought his first boat. Since then, he has spent just about every spare moment fishing on the Kenai River and the Cook Inlet. Dave knows both of these world famous fishing locations like the back of his hand.

Tyler was Dave's first son after 3 daughters and has been his "right hand" man ever since. He started fishing as soon as he was able to walk and hold a fishing pole. Together, Dave and Tyler have spent many years fishing, hunting, and working together here in Alaska. 

Dave and Tyler take pride in providing the most enjoyable and exciting fishing trips possible! They always use the latest technologies in fishing equipment and bait. Hooky Charters use Willie Predator boats which are roomy, comfortable, safe, and reliable as well. 

Hooky Charters is insured and licensed in Alaska. Both Dave and Tyler have taken the coast guard approved course to be licensed fishing guides in both the Cook Inlet (6 pack license), and on the Kenai River.

With our many years of experience, you will receive a first-class Alaskan fishing charter that you won't experience elsewhere. We know how to guide you to landing the big ones! So come experience the breath-taking scenery, excitement, and the guided fishing trip that only Hooky Charters can promise to deliver!
