Fishing with True Alaskan Charters

Ketchikan is known the world over as the Salmon Capital of the World. Here you have access to all five species of Pacific Salmon, including Kings, Sockeye, Silver, Chum and Pink Salmon. Many people come to fish for the big King Salmon or the Pacific Halibut and are then blown away by the quality of Salmon and Halibut fishing. The waters here are thick with fish so catching fish is not a problem.

Expect to find plenty of 20-30 pound Halibut with ample opportunity to battle the Barn Doors that weigh over 100 pounds. When you take a charter anywhere in the world they measure your success by how many bits you get or how many fish you hook. In Alaska, success is not measured by opportunity, but by fact. They measure your success here by how many pounds of fish you catch.

The Waters around Ketchikan offer fishermen an amazing adventure. Whether you fish for Halibut or Salmon, the fish are available and a good charter puts you right on top of them. That is the difference at True Alaskan Charters.
