Took me a couple days to post but I fished my first charter last Sunday. Three guys that work at Vigor Shipyard, here in Ketchikan, were dying to go fishing. After explaining to them this definitely wasn't peak season, we chose to set crab pots and do some bottomfishing. They caught 2 Yelloweye (Red Snapper), 2 Pacific Cod, 2 quillback, and about 15 Dungeness crab. not bad for the end of March. Winter Fishing in Ketchikan is typically pretty slow, but that wasn't bad for 4 hours on a Sunday afternoon. The guys had so much fun and asked when can we go again. We are planning on going again this Sunday. Thank you to Butch for booking 3 days in July, and Yvonne for 3 days in June. Looking forward to Ketchikan's busy summer charterfishing season. Here are a couple pictures of the shipyard boys, and Captain Ross after we went out again yesterday for some crab of our own.
