Alaska Deep Sea Fishing

Alaska is renowned for its fishing. Deep sea is probably the biggest draw, especially during the summer months. If the idea of reeling in a huge catch piques your interest, an Alaskan deep sea fishing trip may be ideal for you.

There are many options when it comes to finding the perfect boat to get you out there. You could charter a boat. Any fishing town you visit will have enough boats available to charter to make your head spin. You can even charter a private boat for the perfect trip with you and your friends. If that sounds like something you’d be interested, you’re encouraged to do a little research ahead of time. Where is ideal? What type of fish are you most excited to catch? How long do you want your trip to be? All these questions are vital to a fun and successful trip!

Although fishing is offered all year round, the summer is the best time for deep sea. The month you visit is very important when it comes to planning your fishing trip as well. King Salmon peak season is Mid-May through July. Mid-April, May, and June are great for Halibut. You’ll also find Ling Cod, Red Snapper, and Black Bass in the Alaskan saltwater.

When it comes to gear you can either bring your own or rent. If you’re staying at a lodge, it’s usually provided for you. But, two things that you will need to bring with you are polarized sunglasses and a camera with plenty of storage. Between the views and the fish, there is plenty to capture! So, with all Alaskan deep sea fishing trips have to offer, you’re guaranteed to find a boat with highly experienced captains and crew whose main goal is to help you catch your limit.
