Here is the info about our Ketchikan trip.
-We fished 4 on our boat but you can "buy the boat" and fish 1-6 for the same price in most cases. We paid $1,600 per day, the prices seemed to vary within $200. We were comfortable but anymore would be to many.
-We stayed at the Cedars which is where most all the sports-fishing charters return and depart from. They also process and package the fish. We had a deluxe ocean side room but I would get a economy ocean side if we go again. $180--$250 per night. We bought the package deal which includes all meals, room, fish processing and airport transfers. Really friendly people. We paid $2,750 per but you can get a good package for around $2,200 to $2,500. You can walk to downtown and they have a free shuttle that will take you.
-We flew Delta to Seattle, to Ketchikan and return.
-We fished with Dalin Charters and Sam is really good but he is really quiet and wants to keep everything you catch. Make sure he understands Barbless hooks and catch and release. I probably would not fish with him again because of this. There are several charters that work with the Cedars and all seemed to be very good at what they do.
-We departed at 7:AM and returned 3 to 4 PM all three days.
