Charter Fishing in Alaska

Charter Fishing

For that authentic Alaskan experience, nothing beats a HiTime fishing charter. An experienced angler herself, Captain Wisner knows all the best spots. Included with all fishing charters are the use of rod and reel, all terminal tackle, and appropriate bait. Fishing licenses may be purchased on board the vessel.

Halibut

The Pacific halibut is probably the second most sought after species by salt water anglers in Alaska. These mighty bottom feeding fish become a culinary delight on any table, prepared many different ways, because of their white, flaky meat. Halibut fishing is best during late spring through the summer months. Coaxing one of these tasty monsters of the deep up from the bottom can be a real chore... but the results are worth the battle!

Captain Wisner's guests have, over the years, caught several halibut in excess of 150 pounds. These huge fish are mature, spawning females. We are always pleased when our guests choose to take lots of pictures and then release these magnificent specimens. The choice is strictly that of the guest. Halibut in the 25 to 50 pound range provide the best tasting meat to vacuum pack and freeze for home cooking.

Salmon

For many anglers, the Chinook, or king salmon, is the prize catch in Alaska. In the waters of the Inside Passage, the average Chinook salmon is 12 to 18 pounds, although fish in the 35 to 40 pound range are not uncommon. Coho (silver) and pink (humpy) salmon are also commonly caught on sport tackle. When the silvers are running they can provide a very exciting day of fishing. Silvers generally run in the 8 to 12 pound range but can be in excess 20 pounds. Fresh, wild caught salmon can be vacuum packed and frozen for our guests to take home.
