Sitka, Alaska, US
All-Day Salmon & Halibut Fishing
Information not currently available.
Approximately 7 Hours
Join this full day of Alaska-style ocean sportfishing. Sitka enjoys an excellent catch rate for salmon and halibut throughout the season. You will pursue king, silver or chum salmon and halibut, fishing with a maximum of six guests.
Salmon fishing is done by trolling with downriggers or by anchoring and mooching. Halibut fishing involves anchoring and jigging. Halibut fishing can be weather dependent.
Your captain will do his best to fish both species, salmon and halibut, but on a small percentage of days, the halibut grounds are too rough to fish. In that event, the focus will be salmon only.
Fishing the open ocean can be subject to ocean swell and wind chop; guests who suffer from motion sickness should take appropriate medication. Alaska State law requires a valid one-day fishing license, which may be purchased for US$25 cash from your fishing boat captain along with a US$15 cash king salmon stamp (during king season May-June). Four to six guests are placed per boat; six is the maximum number of guests allowed per boat. Guests must be able to walk up and down steep dock ramps with little assistance and be able to step aboard a bus and fishing boat with little assistance. Guests using a wheelchair who have high mobility may be able to participate if accompanied by participating friends or family; guests who are exceptionally heavy should only participate if they have high mobility -- please advise tour operator of either circumstance in advance. Due to the length of the trip, it is not suitable for young children. Your catch can be processed locally and shipped home at an additional charge (US destinations only, credit card payment accepted). Your catch will not be allowed on board the ship.
