Captain Randy Wells:
The Wells family settled in Oregon near the Rogue River in 1890. In the 50s the Wells family built wood drift boats to battle the Rogue River in order to catch salmon and steelhead. During the 70s and 80s Darrell Wells, Randy's father was a fishing guide on the Rogue River and owned a tackle store called Wells Gun and Tackle. Randy Wells was born in 1976 and his father Darrell put him on his first Rogue Spring Salmon in 1981; the picture of this fish still hangs on his parents’ wall today. In 1990 Randy moved to Dutch Harbor Alaska to live and work with his grandfather, where both Randy and his grandfather spent many days chasing salmon and halibut around the island. In 1994 Randy moved to Bethel Alaska where he finished high school while continuing to chase salmon. In 1995 Randy and his parents moved to Medford Oregon where they started a successful Culligan Water franchise. In 2006 the business was sold, his parents retired and Randy got to focus on his lifelong dream of catching fish full-time. Randy got his first guide license in 2004 and in 2006 he became a full-time fishing guide. In 2007 Randy received his Coast Guard license to operate charter fishing boats, in that same year started guiding on the Kenai River and out of Seward Alaska. Since 2007 Randy's dream has grown and now involves his loving wife Jennifer Wells their son Logan, Captain Kyle Miller, Captain Beau Crosby even Randy's father has left retirement to join in during the summer months.

Jennifer Wells is the most important asset to Fish Seward Alaska Inc. Without her, the company would not exist, and our clients would be forced to quit fishing all together. In 2012 Jennifer left her career with Rogue Federal Credit Union. At RFCU Jennifer was a Home Loan Officer and had been with the company for 12 years. Once FSA got to be too big for Randy to run the business on his own, Jennifer came to save the day and she did. Since 2012, Jennifer has managed all of the bookings for both Fish Seward Alaska and Oregon Fishing Adventure. At any given time, Jennifer is working with over 30 anglers to ensure they have the best fishing experience possible wheather in Oregon or Alaska.
