Fishing out of Juneau, Alaska

Welcome to the capital of Alaska and to one of the richest Salmon fishing locations in the World. This is the Inside Passage and a remarkable place to target big Trophy Salmon. Here you have access to all five species of Pacific Salmon as well as big Halibut and big Bottom Fish. That is important because of the limits placed on sport fishing. If you limit out here, you simply change tactics and target something else. People come here to battle the big King Salmon and are blown away by the size of Bottom Fish including 60" Ling Cod. In addition to reeling in Big Fish, you get to fish among the whales, sea lions, and Salmon Sharks.

In short, it is hard not to have a wonderful fishing trip in Juneau, but having a trip of lifetime begins with a quality charter.

Fishing with 49th Fathom Charters

49th Fathom Charters offers 4, 6, and 8 hour fishing charters and each charter begins with three fishers. One important fact about fishing with 49th Fathom Charters is that they not only include fish processing, but they will also make arrangements to ship your frozen fish home when your trip ends. All of their charters include gear - fishing gear and bait - and roundtrip transportation from your location to the boat and back. In short, they make it easy to have a wonderful Alaskan Fishing Trip.

While they supply a lot, they ask that you bring your own rain gear and sunscreen and preferably a hat and polarized sunglasses.
