Get To Know Our Fishing Excursions
Four and Six-Hour Salmon Fishing Charter in Ketchikan
On your Ketchikan, Alaska salmon fishing excursions, We use downriggers on the four-hour and the six-hour salmon charters to catch your prized Alaskan salmon. A downrigger is similar to a bit of lift with a horizontal adjustable pole or boom that supports a lead cannonball, commonly 12 to 20 pounds, by a stainless steel cable (Or Heavy Duty Braided Downrigger Line). Also known as a “release,” a clip fastens the fishing line to the cannonball weight. And allows the bait or lure to drag behind the boat as it is moving forward. The pole is inserted in a holder until the fish strikes, pulling the fishing line out of the clip. This happens while the boat is moving through the water, not stationary. When the fish bites the hook, it pulls the fishing line out of the clip and you’ve caught your fish!. Book your Ketchikan fishing excursions online today!
