Fishing Season

Alaska Salmon fishing Trips ~ Alaskan Fishing Charter ~ Ketchikan Fishing Charters

We sit right in the middle of some of the most productive Alaska salmon fishing in the entire state. In fact, Ketchikan is billed as the Alaskan salmon capital of the world. But it doesn't end there. We also have a excellent bottom fishery. While you're on an Alaskan halibut fishing trip you're likely to catch a variety of bottom fish.

  Some of these are red snapper, ling cod, sea bass, rock cod, grey cod and black cod just to mention a few.  

  When fishing you can just sit back and enjoy while your Alaskan fishing guide does all the  work. Or if your an experienced fisherman, or woman you will have the chance to bait, set the gear and net the fish if you choose. I like to give my guests different options to chose from to customize your days on the water.
