Found Baranof online and found all the good things said were true. Went fishing with Matt Carlson as our guide and could not have been happier! We enjoyed his personality and knowledge so much that we requested him as our guide for all 4 days of fishing. Over 4 days we brought home 100 lbs of fish, including. Lingcod, halibut, king salmon, silver salmon, rock cod, cod, not to mention the huge halibut we could not take because he was in the no zone of over 38 inches and under 80 inches. Would definitely recommend Baranof AND the Alaska Fish house, and the cook your catch.

Flawless experience

Nothing but praise for Baranof & Nick, our guide. Our family of 5 booked this excursion independently for a Princess cruise stop. By booking ourselves we were able to get a better rate that allowed us to get a covered boat which came in handy as it rained most of the time we were out. We caught pollock, rock fish, shark & halibut. Our trip was a cook your catch & the stew & dessert were amazing. Camp site was rustic, authentic, beautiful, perfect. They provide everything. Wear warm socks! Great experience!

We came from Utah just to try to bring Halibut home, and Lukas with Baranof made it happen. He was thoroughly detail oriented and a skilled fisherman. Chuck (the owner) and his daughter and son were incredibly accommodating and showed top notch customer service. They also run Alaska Fish House, which serves delicious food at a fair price. The “cook your catch” fishing is a brilliant idea and the chef was spot on. We had a grand time and we wanted to highly recommend this fishing guide service and restaurant. Don’t miss this on a trip to Ketchikan!

This was the second year that we traveled to Ketchikan to fish with Chris and Baranof Fishing Excursions.The trip was, as expected, nothing less than fantastic. Even though we were at the end of the king salmon run and at the very start of the silver runs, we caught our limit of halibut and rock fish. Chris is a really good guide and Baranof worked very hard to make sure that we had the great experience we were looking for. But the amazing part was that at the end of the fishing trip, Baranof offers a "cook your catch" experience where they cook some of your fish for dinner at the Alaska Fish House restaurant which is associated with Baranof and is located right at the dock. We have had the good fortune to eat at some amazing restaurants all over the world and the experience we had tonight eating our fish at the Fish House may have been the best seafood dinner we have ever had. How the Alaska Fish House lured Austin away from Seattle to come to Ketchikan will remain a mystery but please do not miss out. I am struggling to find the words to describe how good our meal was. Thank you Shannon for walking through the entire dinner with us and explaining how everything was prepared and why our taste buds are still in euphoria. If I had to choose between Paris or Ketchikan, we would eat at the Fish House and ask someone to send me a nice picture of the Eiffel Tower!
