Best port to fish in May?


Recommended Posts

Ketchikan by far!!!! We have fished there twice now.


We were on the Diamond Princess May 8th - May 15th and they offered "Guided Fishing & Wilderness Dining" which is through Baranof Skiff Excursions. This is not fly-fishing.


All I can say is that we have done many, many excursions and this was the MOST wonderful, awesome fishing excursion. We caught lots of fish and they cook your fish for you on a private island - the food was superb!! We caught rockfish, quillbacks and silver grays.

The guide threw the extra 3 fish that we caught overboard for the Bald Eagles - and we were able to capture the whole flight and pickup of the fish on video - spectacular!

I can't say enough good things about this company - they are the highest rated in Ketchikan.



Until Millenium 9/6/2004 to Europe!

It may depend on the fishing you want to do. Fresh or salt water? If salt water, salmon, halibut or bottom fish (rock fish, ling cod & such)?




some of my cruising photos:


A bad day cruising is better than a good day at work.


The worst cruise I ever took was pretty damned good.


Platinum with RCI, a couple cruises with NCL and 1 with CCL


Clock remove but cruise in Dec
