We had another killer day fishing for winter king salmon! It snowed on us, and it was cold, but these elusive fish could not escape our herring and Repko minnow lures! We started off with 3 fish in the first 90 minutes, 4 fish by the time the next boat showed up, and ground them out to finish out our limit. The 6 fish went 33, 31, 30, 28, 18, and 16 lbs. It continues to look like a promising year in Ketchikan for salmon and halibut fishing charters. Our guests this year should enjoy some excellent fishing…if the early folks don’t catch them all!

We had another great day of salmon fishing on Easter Sunday. We have not tried to fish halibut yet, but it is coming! As for now, the kings are in, and they are nice! Lots of the king salmon are 15-25lbs, and they are great eaters! These feeder kings are cruising the bays, looking for bait, and sometimes they run into our trap! Salmon fishing in the winter in most areas can be tough, but right now, Ketchikan is hot. It is a positive outlook for the spring and summer season, as we gear up for them. Many of our all day, fishing lodge guests have booked their trips, and a good share of cruise ship fishing guests are hitting our schedules.
