Do you want a fishing trip with a little bit of sightseeing or a sightseeing trip with a little bit of fishing?
Every trip is uniquely tailored to your group's interests.
The Sitka area is known for great saltwater fishing; living aboard the Huntress lets us get away from the crowds where you can see how good the fishing can really be! We can anchor in a quiet bay close to the fishing grounds to cut down on long-run times every morning, and since our trips are 5 days long, we have the option of fishing the inside waters if the ocean is too rough to be fun.
Unlike the "mothership" operations, the Huntress is set up to fish comfortably and effectively from the big boat. During your trip, we will fish for salmon, halibut, rockfish, lingcod, shrimp, and crab. King Salmon and Sockeye are best early in the summer; by late July, we have changed over to Silvers. Halibut, Rockfish, and Lingcod are good all season.
Southeast Alaska is home to some world-class freshwater fishing, much of which is hardly ever touched due to its remote nature. Cutthroats, Rainbows, and Dolly Varden can be found throughout the season, Steelhead fishing is good in the spring giving way to Sockeye, followed by Chums, Pinks, and finally Silvers in the fall. We supply fly rods, spinning rods, waders, guides, and all the necessary tackle. If you've never caught a steelhead or a silver on light gear in the river, then you are really missing out; if you have, then I'm sure you are ready to do it again.
Sightseeing trips generally include halibut and salmon fishing, crabbing, shrimping, brown bear viewing, whale watching, hot springs, photography, black bear viewing, kayaking, hiking, beachcombing, glaciers, seals, sea lions, sea otters, more eagles than you can shake a stick at, unbelievable scenery, and a whole lot of relaxation. If you want to experience a little bit of everything that the Southeast Alaskan wilderness has to offer, then this is the trip for you.
