Some people like to set their own schedule, while others like the challenge of catching their own fish. Self guided fisherman also enjoy more liberal bag limits. Self guided fisherman in Southeast Alaska are still allowed 2 halibut per day of any size. Guided fisherman are currently limited to one halibut per day.

Another advantage Ketchikan has over other fishing destinations in Alaska is the fact that we have both inside protected waters, and outside ocean waters. As a result, we can always find a great place to fish. Ketchikan is located in Southern Southeast Alaska. Ketchikan is just a 1 hour and 40 min flight from Seattle, Washington. Ketchikan is serviced by Alaska Airlines, and Delta Airlines.
