One of our favorite articles to pull together at the end of each year is a list of the best fishing videos posted that year. This yearly addition to our site is also popular with visitors because it’s posted during the downtime for fishing and also colder outside…so, having a few videos to watch can help us get through to the next fishing season.
Our favorite Alaskan fishing videos for 2020 include a monster King Salmon, a couple ice fishing video and some great Alaska nature scenes. Keep fishing and keep recording…maybe your 2021 fishing video will make the list!
Overall Favorite: Trophy King Salmon (43 lbs!) Caught by a Solo Fisherman
Excellent battle here…a little different than past monster catches on these lists. This solo angler is trolling for king salmon near Juneau, Alaska and lands a 43-lb monster. It's great because he has to handle the boat, reel the trophy in and net it by himself – what a prize at the end. It's the definition of trophy king salmon.
Unique Views: Underwater Ice Fishing
The underwater videos are always great because it's a different way to see fish and fishing. We get to see how they move and strike at whatever presentation the angler has out there. This years video is a little different than past ones because it's ice fishing! It was shot near Anchorage, Alaska and gives a clear view of a number of hits and catches. Pretty cool video
Remote Winter Adventure: Ice Fishing for Lake Trout
Our second video with Alaska ice fishing is different than the first because it is mostly on top of the ice (just a few underwater shots). It documents a few anglers getting out onto a remote Alaska lake to target lake trout and they land a few really nice ones. Some nice shots of fish and the Alaskan wilderness in this one – great to see how excited they get when a big one comes through too.
Incredible Views: Fast Paced Video a Fly-Fishing Guide Made
A quick and quality video from an Alaska fly-fishing guide has everything one can hope for on an Alaska fishing trip…some big fish, good fights, wilderness, and laughs. These are the kind of videos that make you want to get the waders on and out to the water.
Sharing the Water with Bears: Russian River Fishing with a bear in the background
Seeing bears in Alaska is a very neat experience and that’s why so many adventure lodges include bear viewing trips as an option. In this video, a few anglers are fishing the Russian River but a black bear is just on the other side. It is interested in what they are doing though and they get moving a little later than I would have – did they bother to net the fish? You'll have to watch and see.
Road Trip: A trip on the Denali Highway and some Grayling fishing
We have covered the experience of driving (and fishing) the Alaska Parks Highway a bit and the Denali Highway offers a similar experience…in this video, we tag along with a young couple making the drive. The couple does a nice job of making you feel like you're on the road with them too because of how they talk to the camera and detail the experience. They have some great scenic shots of the mountains and rivers. They also hit a few spots up for Alaska Arctic Grayling fishing and land a few nice ones.
Well, that wraps up another year of us going into the fishing video wormholes. We hope the videos get you excited to look into your next fishing trip and gives you a good idea of what an Alaskan fishing trip can offer and the options available if you can get out there.
