First Time In Alaska

Alright guys, what should I do? Should I go deep-sea for halibut and salmon, hit the spawn in the rivers for them, or get some trout in the streams? I CAN fly-fish, but my dad can't, so it'd have to be one where you can do both. What do you guys reccomend? Who? What time of year?

Remember, the state is a third the size of the lower 48. You're leaving alot of options open in your question(s).

Personally, if you are going for fishing only, and want to do it all, go to Kodiak. Best fishing I've had in my life. PERIOD. You can do everything you asked about there.

Best thing you can do is start looking on the Internet. Try Kodiak Chamber of Commerce. You'll probably have a whole section dealing with guides, charters, lodging, etc.

A brief summary of my two weeks:

6 day drop camp at a river mouth for the start of the silver run. Tons of dollys, pinks and some rainbows along with the silvers.

Back in town, rented an apartment and van for a week. Traveled the 45 or so miles of the road system to see the sights. Fished the rivers off the roads early and late to catch our silvers. Golfed one day. Chartered for halibut/salmon two other days.

Took our fish to the processor each day to be filleted, vacuum packed and frozen for the trip home.

This trip was the first two weeks of September. Look earlier in the season for kings and perhaps better halibut. Make alot phone calls/emails and get references. Do your homework and you will be rewarded.

Good luck!

    • It's an ignorant question asked again for some ignorant reason.  You're voting Hillary and I'm voting Trump.  No need to get so mad.  I have no idea, just like you, if the poles are correct or not. However even someone who feels the need to ask the same ignorant question for a second time realizes Hillary or Trump will be the next President.
    • You can't even follow a conversation in your own head. According to has always been a zero sum game. Right now if the polls are correct, it is not either Trump or Hillary.....a vote for Trump or Johnson are completely the same.....neither are going to win. So once again .....please choose......either are the polls wrong, or are you going to waste your vote? It is a simple question asked for the second time.
    • Keep that knee on the ground.  I have never once said anything about the poles whether Trump was up or down.  So it's either Trump or Hillary.  Have to choose one.....sorry you're mad bro.
    • Yep, we are now at the point that Del and D2E have to say either the poles are wrong, or not vote for Trump. Because according to their own logic.....if the poles are would be a wasted vote. So what will it be? Have to choose one........
    • Heavens no.  Del doesn't believe in wasting his vote.
    • Not to worry LRG.  You can pick on me all you want.  I guess I'm in the same thought pattern as Getanet,  a house is not a priority now.  I know quality cost $$$.  One thing that I think is crazy is the amount of new houses that are available for sale.  At what point does the market saturate?  How many of these houses financed for 120 months will be repoed or sold at a loss?  A fishouse in every driveway?  Seems like it.   I wonder how much longer some of these builders will be around?
    • That's my description of our O line... I have faith in our coaching system that they will revamp their scheme...  This was like a fall apart game, it was bound to happen. Come on guys, get it together!!!! We will demolish the bears. 
    • Looking at getting the pro xt cabin. ..   Do the seats stay in place or do you have to remove them and put in the sled to get down to the 20.5" packed measurement?    How well do the square tubes work when cold?
