Three Hour Cruise Ship Salmon Fishing Excursion
This last winter, I came up with a new fishing charter for cruise ship passengers coming to Ketchikan. The 3 hour Salmon Fishing Excursion. I kinda felt like there was a gap in what was available and being offered to cruise ship anglers wanting to fish in Ketchikan. Every year, I have clients who have other excursions/activities planned but still want to get out and try to catch a Salmon in Ketchikan ( a town famous for Salmon). As well, some cruise ships have very short dock times here (as little as 5 hours). A half day private fishing charter will take up all of that time and not leave enough time to even walk through downtown. I know that three hours is not enough time to really do any serious fishing. This isn’t about “serious fishing”, that’s what full day charters are for. But, I have found that it is plenty enough time to have a great trip when the fish are biting! If they aren’t, another hour wasn’t going to change things too much. Essentially, I put this fishing trip together to be a more reasonably priced opportunity to get out on the water–Have Fun–and try your luck at catching a Salmon. It will have the best opportunity to be a good trip in July and August, when the most fish are around. I booked a few salmon fishing excursions this summer with clients who had never fished before. It worked out great! This was my first one – and it was the most fun and productive 3 hours dock to dock all year! Landed 5 King Salmon (released 3 that were a little short), 1 Silver Salmon (Coho), and 3 nice Pink Salmon. This trip isn’t appropriate for everyone, but it is a perfect fit for many families coming to Ketchikan on cruise ship vacation. Click Here to Inquire about a date or to get more information.
