Ketchikan Halibut and Salmon Fishing Charter
"Had a great time with Captain William and his son. His boat was docked right across from our cruise ship, and his son was waiting near the disembarkation point with a sign with our name on it. There were four total passengers the day we were in Ketchikan. There were four lines out, with downriggers, to quickly get our bait in front of salmon. We were there in late July 2017, and we landed 5 Coho Silver and 3 Pink plus a King that was too small to keep, but their run was primarily over by this time. Captain William was determined to ensure we had a successful trip, and did what was necessary to find the salmon. He is obviously very experienced in these waters and knew what areas to check. We completed processing paperwork on the way back, dropped off our catch, then returned to the cruise ship in our allotted time. We still had time to explore Ketchikan for about 90 minutes before leaving port. Highly recommend using this smaller operation, for a more personalized experience! Much better than booking through Cruise line"..."
