Fat Salmon Charters hails out of Skagway, Alaska a place where you can target King Salmon into September. Your Captain is Captain Joe and he is a lifelong salmon fisherman and Captain. He has been in Skagway chartering fishing trips for the last 20 years.

TIP: Book Your trip directly with Fat Salmon Charters rather than through the cruise ships. You will save money and have an equal or better fishing trip.

Fat Salmon Charters offers wildlife charters, Salmon Charters, and sometimes you get both. The local waters here are thick with Salmon and where you find Salmon in these numbers you often find Orca, Eagles, and other creatures.

Fishing with Fat Salmon Charters

Lynn Canal is an amazing location. Skagway sits at the very end of this beautiful body of water where the rivers empty into the sea. This is a mixture of salty brine and glacier melt and it produces amazing results. The only place you will find the Ivory King Salmon is here. Whereas most salmon have red flesh, the Ivory Kings are a buttery cream color inside.

All you need is comfortable clothing and your camera. Captain Jerry will provide the rest. You can purchase your fishing license right on the boat. The boat has room for six passengers and features a heated cabin and a restroom. Expect professional-grade equipment and the experience of a captain who knows how to help you catch fish.

This is a charter that welcomes children - with an adult - and novice fishermen too. You will catch fish and have an enjoyable time doing so.
