Ketchikan Charter Boat



Our Ketchikan charter fishing machine!  Your group of up to 6 people will enjoy the comfortable, quiet ride that CAPE ASKIN provides.  The aft deck is larger than almost every other charter boat in Ketchikan, as well as fishability around the entire cabin.  More space to move around while you enjoy your salmon or halibut fishing trip with us.  Powered by twin Cummins diesels, Cape Askin has the speed to extend your fishing time.  On some of our longer runs, that can translate to up to an hour more fishing time than other Ketchikan charter boats.  She carries the latest in marine electronics from Garmin, including a 1242XSV touch head unit that displays sonar, HD radar, electronic charts, XM satellite radio and weather, and is networked with a VHF radio, and her GHP 10 autopilot. Cape Askin has a private head (toilet) for your comfort.

Our fishing gear is second to none throughout the fleet.  While on a Salmon fishing charter with us, you will be using 9’3″ Lamiglas Certified Pro “Kenai Kwik” rods coupled with Shimano Tekota 600 reels.  The rods have a light action tip that really allows you to feel the fish and play it, rather than feeling like you’re using a broomstick.  The reels are smooth and reliable, exactly what Shimano has built their reputation on.

If you choose to take a halibut fishing charter with us,  a powerful 5’8″ Shimano Trevala rod Paired with a Daiwa Salitiga 2 speed reel will be your weapon.  Battling a halibut on these strong, lightweight rods is fun for all.  Able to detect the slightest bite, yet land these monsters of the deep, this combination has proven to be lethal time and again.

Cape Askin is equipped with 4 Scotty high speed electric downriggers for salmon fishing.  These downriggers make it easy to fish at controlled depths and keep our baits right on the noses of the fish we are targeting.

Cape Askin has all the fishing gear, electronics, and safety gear to make your Alaska fishing trip safe and enjoyable! Contact us to book today!
