Alaska Trip Planning | Fishing Trip Details
Welcome and congratulations on booking your fishing trip with us! We are excited to fish with you and be apart of your Alaskan experience this year! To better prepare you for your trip, we’ve put together an ideal day of what to expect while fishing with us for both Saltwater and Freshwater!
“Ninilchik Charters was fantastic! The guides were very professional and informational throughout the trip. Fishing was great, Gear was great and the scenario was beautiful.” -P. Ruda
After arriving at our boat, your Captain/Deckhand (if applicable) will help you board and direct you where to place your things so they are safe for the duration of your trip. Once everyone is together, your Captain will then conduct a briefing going over all safety features to be aware of on the vessel, weather conditions for the day, and a game plan for your fishing adventure with us! At this time, you will need to inform your Captain of ANY health or safety issues or concerns you may have. This is only the only way we can help accommodate you throughout the day and in the event of an emergency.
After finalizing briefing, your Captain and Deckhand will then prepare the boat for departure. At this time, you can make yourself cozy in the cabin and prepare for sightseeing for the next one to two hours while we make our way to a desirable fishing location. During this time, you will embark on some of the world’s most prestigious wildlife viewing and scenic waters. It is common that you’ll see sea otters, porpoise, dolphins, whales, and a variety of birds such as the well- known bald eagle and puffins! Don’t forget your CAMERA!
Upon arrival of the Captain’s fishing location, your Captain/ Deckhand will have all rods and reels geared up with proper bait and weights. At this point, your crew will instruct you on proper use and technique of how to handle the equipment, the proper methods to hook the specie in which you are fishing for, and how to bring them to the surface. Because we are hands-on with all of our fishing trips, you will have the opportunity to hook and reel in your fish every time! Once brought to the surface, your crew will then gaff or net your fish to bring them on board. If you have any questions on the process, technique, or simply new to fishing, our friendly and knowledgable crew will be available to help assist you every step of the way!
Grab your rods and let’s get fishing!
