Ketchikan Salmon and Halibut fishing charters
Welcome to Alaska, to Ketchikan, to Fishing Charters at their finest. Known as the salmon capital of the world, Ketchikan really is a world class fishing destination! Huge numbers of Pacific salmon return to our waters each year and Ketchikan has many great charter fishing opportunities throughout the summer. All 5 species of Pacific Salmon roam our waters. They are: King Salmon (Chinook, blackmouth, spring), Coho Salmon (Silver), Chum Salmon (Dog, Keta), Pink Salmon (humpback, humpy), and Sockeye Salmon (Red). Would you prefer to tackle some white meat? Try your hand at a HALIBUT FISHING CHARTER! Large numbers of Halibut enter our waters following the Salmon as Salmon are a prime food source for Halibut. While on your Halibut Fishing Charter in Ketchikan, we also run into Ling Cod, Pacific Cod, and a wide Variety of Rockfish. Halibut Fishing can be quite a wrestling match. Most Halibut caught on fishing charters are between 15-40lbs, but Halibut do have the chance of growing very large. The biggest Halibut caught on a fishing charter is 459lbs. Halibut are an exceptional tasting fish as well. There are so many ways to prepare Halibut, it would be tough to find a more versitile fish. Salmon fishing and Halibut fishing in Ketchikan is great for another reason…access.
