Top 5 Sitka Fishing Charters

Planning a trip with 6 guys to Sitka for July/August 2013 to do some salmon/halibut/etc. fishing. Would like some "experienced opinions" on which Sitka Charters are the best and putting customers on the fish, lodging and customer service. Would like to narrow it down to the top 5 to make an educated choice from. Thanks for your help.

And who do you think ranks fishing charters in Alaska? It's not like there is a sportsman association that votes each year on them or anything. I can recommend some good guys, but no way can I "rank" them.

>>which Sitka Charters are the best

You can check out many of my posts when people ask about the "best" this or 'best" that. It doesn't exist. "Best" is relative and subjective. Why don't you check out the operators on TA and find the top five that way? Personally I hate their ranking of operators based on reviews that are biased and so often bogus. But it might be one way to go about your request.

On a more helpful note, call SItka Fishing Charters and talk to them:

I know lots of charter fisherman and I have yet to meet one that doesn't love his/her job and taking fishing very seriously. Just go for the fishing package that meets your schedule and your budget.

My BIL, and several members of his family go to Sitka every year to fish. They go to an all inclusive lodge ... Wild Strawberry. Last yr they flew up on June 22 and stayed for 4 days, limited out each day on halibut and salmon.

@ rainbirdreader, Thank you. I am doing just that, and have been. I just thought other fishermen/women that have used different Sitka charter fishing services might express an opinion. I have talked with several already and they have been very helpful, and I trust them to be honest. Thanks

@ yescanada, Thank you. I will contact Wild strawberry. I've been to their website and TA feedback is positive, from what I have read. Regards.

Generally speaking they are all pretty good. But if it were me, I'd look at the charters with bigger boats as they tend to be the ones that can get out to the fish when conditions aren't perfect. The great thing about Sitka is that when the fishing is good, it's really good. Just about everyone can get out and get a limit without much trouble. Good luck!
