Alaska Fishing Charter
Guided fishing with Alaska Premier Charters, Inc. (in Sitka, Alaska) is an awesome angling experience! Whether you're a novice or extreme angler, you'll appreciate our great guiding staff, top-quality sport fishing gear and boats, and incredible sport fishing action, featuring Alaska halibut and salmon!
Your fishing enjoyment is guaranteed on any of the fleet of four 30 foot charter vessels with walk-in heads; a 32 foot charter vessel and a 28 foot charter vessel - both with a toilets in the foc'sle. Each one is fully equipped with state-of-the-art electronics and spacious walk-around decks for your fishing comfort.
The Chinook (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) Salmon is the biggest, most popular and arguably the tastiest type of Salmon. Also known as the King Salmon, it was designated the state fish of Alaska in 1962. They average 22-28 pounds and 30-36 inches long, but it is common to pull in kings that are much much bigger. The record King Salmon, at 126 pounds, was caught in a fish trap in 1949 near Petersburg. The record sport-caught King Salmon was 97 pounds, caught in the Kenai River in 1986.
