And from this point on, it’s likely your hooked on salmon fishing in Alaska. Our light tackle gear will give you the fight of a lifetime no matter what species of salmon is at the end of your line. In May/June, we are typically targeting the King (Chinook) Salmon, the largest of all the salmon who put up quite the fight. During the months of July and August, our focus is likely to be the Coho (Silver), Salmon. These silver bullets are sure to put even the most experienced anglers to the test. Often darting rapidly and jumping out of the water, they never give up without a fun fight. It’s not uncommon to hook into two, three, or more simultaneously, creating what we like to call organized chaos. While hooking these Cohos may seem like the only task, getting these fish netted and into the boat before they shake your hook is an even greater challenge. Halibut Fishing Hit the weight room lately? If not you may want to before dropping your line deep for this infamously large flat bottom fish, the Pacific Halibut. These barn doors range between 10-400+ pounds. Every summer they rise from ocean depths of over 1,000 feet to as little as 50 feet in search of bait fish to feast on in our local waters. Once hooked, these strong swimmers can provide a great challenge as they fight you back to the bottom. Depending on where the halibut are, we typically fish in depths ranging from 100-400 feet. It’s also possible to pick up rockfish, cod, flounder and other fun creatures while fishing at these depths. The regulations for the size and amount of halibut each person is allowed to retain on a charter change each year. Whale Watching Whales and eagles and sea lions, oh my! Better have your cameras ready during this up close and personal experience of Alaska’s most recognized wildlife. Our focus is to introduce you to the humpback whales who return to these waters to feed and play for the summer months. These gentle giants can often be seen breaching, tail lobbing, or swimming on their backs exposing their flippers. Another possible encounter is with the well-known black and white beauty, the Orca (also known as the killer whale). Often traveling with their families in pods these majestic mammals are very social and the top predator of the ocean. While on the water it’s very likely we will have great photo opportunities of bald eagles and sea lions. A more rare site, but not impossible, is spotting the black and brown bears roaming the beaches of surrounding islands. So keep your eyes open and have your camera battery charged as we venture into Alaska’s wild.

Captain Shelby, originally from Illinois, grew up fishing the fresh water lakes and rivers of the Midwest with her brother. Upon graduating high school, she moved to California to pursue a bachelor’s degree in film production. She worked for DreamWorks Animation SKG for 4 years in Los Angeles, until mass layoffs occurred in early 2013. After this she wanted a change from the busy city life and made the move to Juneau, Alaska. It was here where she discovered her passion for salt water fishing and the maritime industry. She started out sport fishing with friends on the weekend and was instantly hooked. The following summer she began deck handing on local charter boats, and was eventually granted her Masters Captain’s license. She has worked for several charter companies in and around the Juneau area over the years. In her spare time she enjoys commercial hand trolling for salmon and exploring the great 49th state of Alaska. During the winter she likes working for the Marine Exchange of Alaska, traveling and running a Christmas tree business with her brother.
