Reel Salty Fishing Charters sails out of Ninilchik which is just off the Sterling Highway and an easy 3-hour drive from Anchorage or you can fly into Kenai, Alaska, which is about an hours drive to Ninilchik. Ninilchik makes the perfect central spot to fish the Kenai Peninsula and Cook Inlet is an amazing fishing destination for Salmon, Halibut, and Rockfish.

Fishing with Reel Salty Fishing Charters

Reel Salty Fishing Charters is Captain Brian Baker and Captain Katie Ireland both of which are US Coast Guard Licensed. The duo shares a deep passion for fishing Cook Inlet and with good reason. Cook Inlet is a natural nursery for growing big Fat Halibut and A ritual stop for Salmon who spawn in all of the local Creeks. In order to get to the Kenai, Kasilof, Ninilchik, or other world-famous rivers in the area, the Salmon must travel up Cook Inlet and into the waters around Ninilchik.

One of the best reasons to choose this charter is that you only need to show up in comfortable clothing, lunch, and with a photo ID. You can buy a fishing license from them. They do suggest dressing in layers as Alaska weather can be quite warm to freezing cold and often in the same day.

Children are welcome as are new fishers. You should expect to fish from 5-9 hours depending on the type of charter that you choose.

Overall, you should expect a fishing charter that focuses on safety while allowing you to enjoy your trip. As with all charters, it is advisable to check the current fishing regulations as they change often and currently the pressure on Halibut fishing requires that only two fish be kept and that there is no fishing for Halibut on Wednesdays.
