Best Town for Halibut

5 posts in this topic

We're planning a cruise and would like to fish for halibut. Our choices are Juneau, Skagway or Ketchekan. Going the 1st week of August. Any info or past experience would be great. Thanks DrJ.

I would recommend Ketchikan. A friend up there owns Alaska Wilderness Charters and I know they do excellent on Halibut. I am not sure what time of the year is best for that area, but Brad will put you on fish and is a straight shooter about what he has. Started hunting with him years ago and his business has grown lots over the years. He will take good care of your needs.

Superbee, Thanks for the info. We're going next Aug. but I'm going to book it now so we're not dissapointed when he's full. Should I mention your name(what is it) when I call him up. Good Fishing DrJ.

Tell him Lucas Adams referred you. Brad will take good care of you and put you on fish. Be sure to post some pics and a report after your trip.

When planning fishing trips around cruise ship schedules check how much time you will have in each port. The best we could do was a 3\4 day trip. Only one of our ports of call let us spend this much time fishing.

The day of the week seemed to make a big difference too. Most guides we found booked their trips from Thursday through Monday or Tuesday. That left only Tuesday or Wednesday for a one day trip.

You're right to plan this far ahead. A better plan may be to go up a day or two early and fish before you get on the cruise. Lots of places on the Kenai where you can schedule a one day trip.

Good luck and have fun!
