Svenson Sportfishing

407 Knudson Cove Road
Ketchikan AK, United States

Svenson Sportfishing Charters provide guided fishing trips for Salmon and Halibut in the so-called “Salmon Capital of the World” - Ketchikan, Alaska. Set in the breathtaking surroundings of the Misty Fjords and Tongass National Forest, their fishing trips do not only expose you to incredible fishing, but also to wonderful wildlife.

While you are on your fishing trip your vessel will be a 27 ft Maycraft 2700 Pilothouse, a sturdy boat that offers a stable ride as well as protection from the weather. Powered by twin Yamaha engines, the boat wastes no time getting to the fishing grounds, and its quality navigational electronics will ensure that you find the best places to fish.

Your trip will involve fishing for Salmon and Halibut using a variety of techniques, including bottom fishing, trolling, drifting, and jigging. Trolling for King Salmon is best early on in the year, while jigging for Lingcod can also be great fun for those who want a more involved method of fishing.

All the equipment you will need during your trip is included in the price, and snacks and drinks are also provided by the charter operator.
