The state of Alaska, with its multiple islands and 34,000 miles of coastline, has long been known as a fishing destination. Alaskan waters are home to a wide variety of fish, including trout, halibut, and salmon, and they attract both commercial and recreational fishing enterprises. To help more people take advantage of this opportunity, Oasis Alaska Charters is offering chartered fishing trips in the southeastern city of Ketchikan, located on the island of Revillagigedo. —
Company owner Mark Andrew explained, "I grew up in Ketchikan and spent my youth fishing in the these waters, so I'm deeply familiar with the migration patterns of the fish in the area. Even though I moved to Washington as an adult, I never lost my connection to this place. When I started taking friends and family on fishing trips, I knew there was no better fishing destination, so I brought them up here. Now I'm thrilled to be able to introduce this beautiful area and great fishing opportunity to my clients."
Ketchikan has an established reputation for good fishing, especially Salmon fishing. In fact, it's been called "The Salmon Capitol of The World.""One of the things I'm happy to be able to provide for my clients," said Andrew, "is an accurate chart depicting the peak salmon runs. It's an exhilarating experience to be surrounded by fish swimming in all directions, and needless to say, the catches can be phenomenal." Oasis Alaska Charters offers six-hour salmon charters, and clients can fish for King, Silver, Pink, and Chum salmon, depending on the month.
Another popular catch is halibut, a common fish in the area that plays a vital role in the local economy. It's also one of the most popular gamefish for anglers. Andrew has a particular appreciation for this nutritious and versatile fish, and is pleased to offer Salmon and Halibut fishing charters. "Another advantage we offer," said Andrew, "is the proximity of Clover Pass Resort. They're happy to process and deliver the fish our clients catch."
Andrew emphasized that the charters are not only for fishing hobbyists. In fact, he has worked with many groups who simply want to enjoy a new experience together, like families on vacation and cruise ship guests. "We really want to offer our clients more than just a fishing trip," concluded Andrew. "Being out on the water is an amazing way to experience nature and see things that you would never see elsewhere." According to Andrew, past clients have enjoyed such sights as bald eagles, seals, sea lions, and a Bubble Feeding Whale at the dock.
While charters are available year round, the peak times for fishing are in the summer months. Clients can book a charter on the company's website or by phone.
