Captain Mindy Webster-Payne

Navigating Your Journey Through Alaska's Waters

I started my fishing career by working for my dad’s Kenai River fishing guide service as a young teenager. I spent many days on the Kenai River during the summer months learning from the best of the best – my dad (Ultimate Extreme Super Duper Master Guide Jeff Webster)! I was also a deckhand for a halibut/salmon charter boat for two summers. After working for others for a few years, I saved enough money to buy my first drift boat, and started my own guide service at 23 years old. I tell people, everyday, that I have the best office ever— the roof leaks a little, but I get a 360 degree view of the amazing Kenai Peninsula!

I love my job and the day that fishing is no longer exciting to me, is the day I’ll move on and use my college education. I love fishing. For me, there is no bigger rush than seeing one of my fishing rods getting flattened to the rail of the boat, or getting bent to the cork by a King Salmon with a nasty attitude. What a great life to be living; I couldn’t be happier to share that experience with you!

I met Reubin on the Kasilof River in 2003. We instantly hit it off as good fishing buddies, and business associates. We worked together often, and Reubin quickly became one of my closest friends. We fell in love, got married and now have three healthy, handsome, rough and rowdy teenage sons named Noah, Anthony and Owen. We are truly blessed! Since getting married, we have combined our businesses, shared “super double top secret” egg curing recipes, taught each other many tricks of the trade, and taken the rivers by storm!
