You never know what you're going to get when booking a trip on the last minute, but Alaska Go Fish did not disappoint.
We had a fantastic experience on the water and made memories to last a lifetime.
Captain Jos put us on the fish and was a fantastic host. Can't wait to go back!

Can’t speak highly enough about the experience...

Captain Jos is a seasoned pro who knows all the the best local fishing spots like the back of his hand, and you can’t beat the views from out there on the water. Ketchikan is a stunningly beautiful place, and by boat is the best way to see it all.

I highly recommend.

Captain Jos is a great guy and one heck of a captain. He made us feel really comfortable and we learned a lot. We are pretty new to fishing so he walked us through everything and we felt like a part of the crew. I highly recommend going the Capt Jos if you want to catch fish. Also, the boat is in new condition rather than some of the other boats out there. Next time we visit we are definitely going with Alaska Go Fish again.

With Captain Jos, It Was A Whole New Level
I am originally from Ketchikan Alaska and I do my best to get back there every year.

It really is great to let someone else do all the work, while I just get to reel in the fish.

Over the past five years, I have done 8 charters with five different Charter Captains. Each of the previous Captains did a good job and provided a good experience.

But on our trip with Captain Jos, it was a whole new level. I was extremely impressed with his ability to quickly find and bring in the target fish. Trophy fish are the real challenge and Jos knows how to get it done. I swear we would have won the derby if it were on this season. Check out the photo - we did not have a scale, but our consensus best estimate was 40lbs +.

On our trip, we brought in several Kings and four Coho on a short 4-hour trip. From now on when I return home I am booking with Captain Jos!

Best trip I've ever had. Captain Jos had us on a honey hole in no time flat. Plenty of fish caught. Boat was immaculate and no shortage of drinks or snacks. Made a dream come true. I'll be back next year 100%. 👍👍

I took my son and two nephews on a 4 hour trip were we all caught salmon and an extra surprise a halibut! Captain Jos was very hands on with me since I am pretty new to fishing. He is very polite and helpful to all who come on board. His boat was very clean and comfortable- best thing is he told us he was getting a new boat so that when we come back it will be even better! While we were out we were able to see whales, eagles and even a seal. I look forward to our next trip!

If he had a chance to go fishing with Jos he would in a heartbeat. While in Ketchikan, we went with Captain Jos of Alaska Go Fish on a 6+ hour trip. We caught more fish than we could take home. We also enjoyed seeing the wild life, eagles, whales and porpoise while on our trip. What a great experience! We look forward to fishing again with Jos on his NEW boat soon!

My brother and I are outdoor enthusiasts and have always had Alaska fishing on the bucket list. We have been on hunting and fishing trips. This time we were looking for a relaxing trip, yet something that wasn't touristy. It delivered!

We did our research. The charter is 100% owned and operated by native Ketchikans. Our Captain Jos is a true captain of the "Rosemary". He is extremely knowledgeable about where to find the trophies and they have all the gear and technology to back him up. We booked our trip for the first open day of King Salmon. We had fisherman's luck on the salmon and then decided to go after some halibut.

This is a brand new state of the art boat you are stepping on (It's still heaven white). I asked Jos about it. He said it made its maiden voyage was within the last 4 months.

If you are taking a week to come to Alaska or are passing through on a cruise boat, they are accommodating to your schedules and true pros. No rush anxiety.

This is the correct move. Catch some fish, and feel like you know some natives.

With two kids I can't really spend a whole day on the water. With Captain Jos - I don't need to. We have been fishing twice and both times we caught our fish in a half day trip. For the weekend warrior - "non-serious" fisherwoman, Captain Jos is the way to go. Alaska Go Fish has a brand new beautiful Parker boat. The accommodations are great as far as fishing boats go. If you want an incredible comfortable Alaska Fishing trip - talk to Alaska Go Fish!!
