With such a massive coastline, there’s no shortage of saltwater fishing in Alaska. Depending on the season, your quarry includes all five species of Pacific salmon plus enormous halibut, feisty lingcod and several species of rockfish. You can fish straight from the surf in some communities, meet new friends on a “six-pack” (six-person) charter boat day trip or take advantage of an overnight cruise to catch two days’ worth of fish in one trip. Some of Alaska’s fishing resorts cater to saltwater species too, offering guided fishing sorties every day, with luxury lodging and gourmet meals awaiting your return to the lodge. They’ll also process, package and sometimes even ship your catch home for you.
