I had an 8 hour Combo Salmon and Halibut Charter yesterday and a 3/4 day Halibut Charter today.
8 Hour Salmon & Halibut Fishing
This fishing charter is “short” full day fishing charter. It gives us either the legs to run way out if there is something going on or the extra time needed to make a good fishing trip in closer. On this particular day, my clients were only in town for a short while on the Celebrity Solstice. It is one of the cruise ships whose scheduled stop in Ketchikan is long enough for this type of trip. The weather has held and the water has been really nice. I decided to run out a ways and check a spot I haven’t fished for a while. It turned out to be really good. We caught four King Salmon, 8 Silver Salmon (Coho), 2 Pink Salmon, 4 Halibut, a Yelloweye Rockfish and 3 quillback rockfish. I didn’t manage to do well at taking pictures, just got these two shots of a couple of our King Salmon.
On my Halibut fishing charter today: I had to release this one as he was in the slot.
