Sitka Sound, and the outer coast waters of Baranof Island offers one of the most spectacular fishing experiences to be found anywhere on Earth. The pristine waters of the Sound and Gulf of Alaska are absolutely teeming with marine life, and all five species of Paciifc salmon, halibut, lingcod and a stunning variety of other bottom fish can be caught just minutes from our dock. With exceptional knowledge of the area and a passion for great service, we offer high-quality, all-inclusive ocean sportfishing trips for every type of angler, from first timers to seasoned pros.
All fishing trips are led by storied captain-guides who have years of experience fishing in these waters, and our custom-built boats are equipped with radar, GPS and depth sounders to make sure you can find the fish and stay on top of them. The boats also feature abundant deck space for fishing and comfortable, heated cabins to relax in while cruising to-and-from fishing hot spots. Our top-of-the-line fishing rods and reels improve your odds for landing that fish of a lifetime.
Fishing for King salmon is regarded by many to be the ultimate angling experience, and Sitka Sound is home to Alaska’s largest recreational King salmon fishery. We cannot promise you will catch a King, but the odds for the mid-May through late-August timeframe are very very good. Silver salmon, legendary for their fight and aerial displays, are also abundant in our area, and we catch a lot of them from mid-June through September. Catch rates for both King and Silver salmon are three times higher than anywhere else in the region.
Once you hit your limit for salmon, you may want to fish for Pacific halibut. From early-June through September, the fishing for these giants is among the best in the world. We primarily fish for halibut in the 50–150-pound range, but it is possible to reel-in fish as large as 400 pounds. Your guide will know the best spots to fish for halibut, lingcod and pelagic rockfish, and will be ready with tips and to lend a hand when you get an especially big one on the line.
Of course, it won’t just be great memories you’ll be savoring after returning home. Latitude 57’s dedicated team of in-house fish processors take great pride in cleaning, cutting, freezing and packaging your catch to ensure you will be enjoying spectacular dining get-togethers with family & friends for weeks to come. This service is included in the price of your stay. We will also deliver your fish boxes direct to the airport on your day of departure, to accompany you as luggage on your flight home.
With the start of each day, we renew our commitment to make your stay with us the Alaska fishing adventure of a lifetime.
