Amazing Alaska fishing trip!
Big thanks to Captain Lucas and Baranof Fishing at Ketchikan AK. We had an amazing trip and the kids loved it. We caught and released 2 monster ling cod, and my daughter Kelly caught the biggest one. They also cooked some of our catch in their restaurant. It was delicious!
Best Alaskan Fishing Trip
Just got back to Massachusetts last night, our fish arrived today... it was awesome. Matt went above and beyond especially with teenage girls onboard. He was professional, funny and knowledgeable. As fishing captains ourselfs on the east coast we understand the industry. Matt was exemplary. Highly recommend this company... ask for Capt. Matt.
Best tour in Alaska!! Baranof Fishing
Baranof Fishing Experience is professionally done start to finish. We met Trent Updegraff just off the cruise ship and walked 2 minutes to the boat with our group of 5 including one in wheelchair and 2 teens. Perfect sunny day on a spotless boat and best mate, Kim, you can imagine. Saw lots of wildlife on 30 minute ride to our fishing spot. Captains spread the fleet and when one started catching we moved and had a Halibut on shortly thereafter. We caught fish after fish. We caught one 70lb fish that we in the "slot" that fought and fought. Trent took our catch, filleted and Shannon took us over to cook up our catch. Best meal we had all week!!! First round of beer on the house! 6 hours was perfect length.
Incredible AK Fishing with Guide Steve
So, you know the moment where you have to choose what to do "extra" while on an Alaskan cruise? Well, in Ketchikan, look NO Further! Baranof Fishing Excursions and Fish Camp is THE BOMB.
We had our 2 kids (11/Boy and 8/Girl) and they absolutely loved it. They fished by themselves with the expert guidance of Steve, we later filet the fish and cooked the very fresh fish into a great meal.
Steve was a Military guy who lived all over the world, and once retired from US service, he beelined straight to Alaska to guide fishing trips. He is the perfect guide, Fish Tattoo on his arm, Big protective beard, Top gear, and a fun and efficient nature. Our daughter kept pulling the fish up, and so she started talking trash to Steve and they had wonderful time pulling fish out. We threw many back, and kept only what we were going to eat. The weather was perfect for Alaska. The memory will last for decades. It was the BEST experience, and although pricey in absolute dollars, it was a Great value, and I'd do it again tomorrow. Can't recommend enough~ Saw a Bald eagle get a fish off the water, right in front of us...Looked for Bears. Crystal clear water, and they give you all the gear you need! A+
Great fishing trip with my dad and sons.Sam meet us at the dock geared us up and got us on the water fast. We went straight to the fish caught three as soon as our hooks hit the water.I will have to say Sam knew exactly where to go and what was biting. After a few hours of fishing we meet up with Drew the cook at camp and he grilled our catch while we waited.The food was delicious. We had a great time and would definitely go again if we ever get back to Alaska.
GREAT FISHING !!!
My wife and I had a great fishing experience . It was a beautiful day and the fishing was amazing ! Our captain Trent found the fish and the bite never stopped. There were 2 other people on the boat and we caught 14 halibut. We were only allowed to keep 4 based on Alaska fishing regulations. We also cod ,sole and even a shark. It was my wife's first fishing trip and she caught the biggest halibut 36" and over 20 pounds. I highly recommend Baranof if you want a great fishing trip and ask for Trent. Marty & Rachelle

Extremely Professional And Personable Operation
So glad we booked with Baranof and had Captain Geoff (and Steve too!) putting us on fish. We limited in Halibut, caught a few rockfish and cod to boot. The boat was an awesome, built for purpose vessel, and even in a 3’-4’ chop, was very comfortable. Safety and passenger comfort was important to Geoff, which meant a lot to us. Cap’t was also extremely personable, telling fun stories and always willing to answer our “dumb tourist” questions. In addition, we truly appreciated Geoff letting us handle the rods and do the reeling - in past experience this isn’t always allowed which makes the experience much less authentic. We had a great Alaskan fishing experience and highly recommend Baranof!
