Jim will be back for the 2014 season and hopes to see you then.
Jim has fished the country from remote rivers
and lakes in Alaska's interior to the clear Caribbean waters of Florida.
Jim was previously a guide on Lake Illiamna, west of Anchorage. Famous for
its monster rainbows as well as silver salmon, Lake Illiamna yielded many
limits to Jim and his guests. Prior to that, Jim held his captains license
in Florida where his favorite outings were for Dolphin (the game fish) and
fishing the Flats for Snook, Redfish, and Tarpon.
Jim prides himself on being able to find fish for any guest and being able
to teach youngsters to catch fish. His son Chase is testimony to his ability
and it is not uncommon now to hear arguments (especially from Chase) about
who the better fisherman actually is.
Jim holds his EMT certificate and was formally a fire fighter on Pine
Island, Florida. He graduated from the University of South Florida.

"A guide's guide! My compliments to Captain
Jim Looney - a true pro and wonderful companion in the boat. I subscribe to
the Sun Tzu theory of fishing: "He who does not use a local guide does not
know the water." I've spent the better part of 35 years guiding in Montana,
and the rest fishing all over the world. When I give this high of a
compliment you better believe it is well deserved. Book this man with
