Half-Day Charter Options
When booking an Alaskan fishing charter, it’s important to know what you are looking for. For our half-day fishing charters, we tend to stick to salmon, rockfish, and your black and grey cod. While Halibut fishing trips are fun, they are typically too far out to sea for a half-day trip.
- Half-Day Salmon Charters: Ketchikan is known for being the “Salmon Capital of the World.” People come from miles and miles hoping to catch the delectable fish! Here in Ketchikan, we have King, Silver, Chum, Pink and Sockeye salmon swimming through our waters. When we take a salmon charter out, we typically focus on Kings and Silvers. King salmon is one of the most prized catches here in Ketchikan. It is the largest species of salmon and is known for tasting the best. King salmon charters yield the best results in May, June and July. Silver salmon is the second largest and is also known for their delicious taste. This beautiful fish has silver sides and a strikingly bold metallic blue back. We like to send charters out for silver salmon between July and November.
- Half-Day Rockfish and Grey & Black Cod Charters: We aren’t going to lie. There’s something about pulling a fish from the depths of the sea up onto the boat that just makes us giddy. If you’ve never been out searching for rockfish, it’s time you book this charter. Just like their name, these fish stay on the bottom and hide in the crevices or perch up on a rock. For this reason, with both grey and black cod, as well as rockfish, we tend to fish on the bottom. We use dead baits of jigs and our depths can range anywhere from 50-600 feet. Imagine reeling in one from 300 feet! What an adventure! The same can be said for your black and grey cod. This fish is a delicacy around here and is known as the “butter fish” due to its high omega-3’s and delicious and buttery taste.
No matter what type of fish you are after, half-day charters are worthwhile at Angler’s Adventures & Outfitters. Like we’ve said before, half-day charters are perfect for all types of skill levels and age ranges. No experience is necessary to hop on board and start making lasting memories. We guarantee you, you won’t want this fishing trip to end! For more information about booking your half-day fishing charter, call Angler’s Adventures & Outfitters today.
