Overview

Ketchikan's Aurora Sportfishing's owner Captain Anthony M. Knuteson has a fishing addiction! Captain Tony in Ketchikan ROCKS. Whether bottom-fishing for our local Halibut or fishing for our famous King Salmon he specializes in catching fish and having fun too. Ketchikan is known as the " Salmon Capital of the World!" Lucky for us that means we have more salmon than we know what to do with.

We had a great time with Capt. Tony. He told us all about living in Alaska. My husband caught a 22 lb King and I caught a 15 lb. We had a great time and you should not miss fishing with him!
