Alaska Sport Fishing

Alaska King Salmon

Alaska King Salmon fishing is nothing short of spectacular. Sitka is often referred to as Southeast Alaska’s “King Capital” for having the regions highest king catch rates year in and year out. During the summer months schools of hungry king salmon move near shore from their wintering grounds in the north pacific. Here they feed on never ending schools of baitfish, in preparation for their eventual migration to their stream of origin. Hard fighting, tasty and in the prime of their lives, king salmon range from 15 to 60 lbs. Our King salmon fishing is done with medium action G-loomis rods fitted with Diawa line counter reels and 25 lb monofilament.

 

 

Alaska Silver Salmon

Alaska Silver salmon fishing in Sitka can be described in one word - “action!” In much of same way that the king salmon do, summer brings incredible schools of silver salmon to our waters. Hearty appetites coupled with intense competition within the schools, can create a virtual feeding frenzy. Multiple hook-ups of these acrobatic fish are common, and cause a pandamonia guaranteed to get the heart pumping. In fact, silver salmon feed so actively during the summer they can often grow a pound a week, they range in size from 8 to 20 lbs. Our silver salmon fishing is done with medium action G-loomis rods fitted with Diawa line counter reels and 20 lb monofilament.

Alaska Halibut

Alaska halibut fishing in Sitka is outstanding. So outstanding that it will sometimes seem like work. These leviathans of the deep will test both your strength and fortitude. They are excellent table fare, especially the “chickens” in the sub 50 lb class. These halibut average about 40 lbs and can range to over 300 lbs. Our hailbut fishing is done with All-Star and Loomis stand up tuna rods fitted with shimano TLD’s both in single and two speed. The reels are spooled with 80 lb izorline spectra.

Lingcod

Lingcod are one of the Alaska’s most aggressive predators. Built with enormous mouths, and sharp teeth these bottom dwelling rockfish are able to prey on almost all other species of fish. In fact, it is not uncommon for them to attempt to eat each other. They are strong fighters and range in size from 10-70lbs.

 

 

Yelloweye (aka Red Snapper)

These brilliant orange bottomfish are commonly caught while halibut and lingcod fishing. They range in size from 6-20lbs, and can live to be 100+ years old.
