It’s not worth catching the big fish if you can’t get it home and show it off.  With our help your “bragging rights” are safe.   Through our friends at Cedars Lodge, for an additional cost, your fish can be professionally filleted, processed, vacuum sealed and shipped right to your home arriving on any day you select!  Fire up the grill and invite the neighbors to eat what you caught on your Alaskan adventure!

Another Customer’s Review From Our Past Season!

“The time was 6:00am and it continued to rain as we entered Ketchikan, Alaska. We had to be on the dock early this date as Salmon fishing was the order of the day, 7:00am and we were signing the charter boat’s paperwork. This was not a Princes excursion so Capt’n Dan admonished all we would be prompt about making the return trip back to dock. Capt’n Dan ran through the preliminary safety briefing, introduced his assistant Alex and we were on our way.

About thirty minutes later we arrived on site and began trolling for fish. Six fishing poles were set aft with the four inboard lines set on a downrigger between 30 & 60 feet of depth. The two out board lines were running shallow, all lines carried flashers of significant size designed to draw the fish in. It wasn’t long and the youngest members of our group had fish on, Alex maneuvering the big net to better boat their catch.

During the lulls between fish Capt’n Dan explained the difference between vertical and horizontal jumping fish and what seasons were best for which fish. In addition, he talked about bear locations on the various islands we were fishing off of…Every one of us had a shot at fishing for Salmon and we all brought home a share of the freezer. If you enjoy fishing in Ketchikan look up Captain Dan Leathers through Ketchikan Charter Boats, Inc. they will take you to the fish and make sure you are provided an opportunity to catch your limit. I recommend Capt’n Dan and his boat!”
