These fishing charters are for the ultimate angler wishing for the utmost fishing adventure. Choose from several multispecies fishing charters which include Ling Cod fishing, Yellow eyed Rock Fishing charters, and Salmon/Halibut fishing combos.
Ling Cod is a great target for those wanting a bit more than the standard charter. Ranging from 12 inches to 5 feet with a world record weight of nearly 83lbs, this prehistoric looking fish is frequently caught while fishing for salmon or halibut. A very tasty fish with a nicely textured white meat which works perfectly in many recipes.
Yellow-eyed Rock Fish are another colorful favorite. These orangish-yellow, reddish-orange fish are easily recognized by the bright yellow of their eyes. Also nicknamed yellow bellow & red rock cod, yellow-eyed rock fish are great to add to your multispecies fishing charter and who knows, you might even catch an octopus.
Another popular combination is the Salmon/Halibut charters available when the mighty King Salmon and the acrobatic Silver Salmon are fighting their way into the rivers to make their incredible journey upstream to spawn. Catching salmon before they reach the fresh water delivers a bright silver appearance and the firm, fresh meat that is so sought after for the dinner table.
This is a King (Chinook) or Silver (Coho) Salmon/Halibut combo. Based on timing the tides, you will fish for salmon along the coastline and halibut in the deeper waters of Cook Inlet. $375/person

Alaskan salmon can be caught in either river areas or the saltwater inlets. There are certain Alaskan halibut charter seasons that salmon can also be caught. Northern Pacific salmon are considered highly sought after fish during excursions. The taste of the cool saltwater from the Alaskan Gulf Coast combined with the fresh taste of salmon leaves many anglers seeking fishing charters to catch these sought after fish.
In addition to the peaceful wildlife encounters on these excursions, an angler may even catch a glimpse of a moose or even a bear from time to time. In addition, one may encounter the many species of birds to include the possible bald eagle on our Alaska salmon fishing expeditions. These Alaska salmon charters combine the best of wildlife and fishing in one truly amazing adventure.
