Did a little fishing this week in Ketchikan. Day 1 was focused on Halibut, and we slayed them. Largest 2 where mine and my wife's. My big one weighed 35lbs.


Day 2 was focused on Salmon and we limited out on Silvers up to 12lbs. Gonna fire up the smoker when I get home. Lots of folks getting smoked salmon for Christmas this year food


Total for the trip is 14 Salmon, 3 Halibut and 4 Rock fish. One heck of a great trip. thumb Highly recommend everyone give this a try someday. I know I'll be coming back!

Went out on day trips with a local guide. We jigged 400 ft with cut bait for the Halibut. Trolled with down riggers and flashers for the Salmon.

Baranof guide service. Biggest and best in Ketichikan. They have 25 guides going out daily sharing info so they stay on the fish. Word to the wise. Make sure your guide is competent trolling with Down riggers. Bait dunking is very slow, but guides putting in effort to troll are getting limits.
