Experience the spectacular Alaskan waters and wildlife first hand as you fish for King (Chinook) salmon, Silver (Coho) salmon, or Sockeye (Red) salmon depending on the season. All trips will start with the captain gathering you at your ship and take a small walk to your boat. There is a small amount of necessary Paperwork (Fishing Licenses if needed, King Stamps, ADF&G Log Book) for fishing in Alaska on our short voyage to the fishing area. Then enjoy a morning/afternoon of wildlife, fishing, and MEMORIES in the waters of SE Alaska.

BigDogCharters can work with the schedules for all Cruise Ships arriving in Ketchikan between May 10th and September 25th.

Call or text Captain Al @ (425)478-3681 and see what he can do to you to get you fishing.
