Owner description: 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.

While all the other boats went deep, Capt Tony decided to stay inside after he saw a salmon jump. We landed 5 and lost a bunch. We had a fantastic time. My daughter caught some black fish and we fed it to the eagle. What a sight - more than a fishing trip.

We went on a cruise and only had 4 hours in Ketchikan. Our Captain, Tony, met us right at the boat dock and made sure we were back in plenty of time before our boat left. We started fishing right away and were catching fish as soon as the lines hit the water. The fishing was excellent and we had a wonderful time! We ordered Salmon and it arrived on our doorstep as promised. They were very accomodating. We couldn't have asked for better service! I would definitely recommend Aurora Sportfishing! Thanks Tony! - Ethan & Natalie

Due to a booking conflict with our cruiseline, we went out seeking a charter on our own and are so glad we did! My Mom, myself, DH & 2 DS's (6 & 9) went for a 6 hour combo trip which proved to be an excellent choice of fishing, with an excellent captain!
We caught our limit of AK's version of Red Snapper (yellow eyed rock fish), a halibut and lots of salmon! All processed and back home, in our Florida freezer!
I'd definitely recommend Aurora Sportfishing and Captain Tony to anyone who loves to fish, young or old, with or without kids! A born & raised, Ketchikan Man: Capt. Tony is YOUR guy!
Can't wait to go back! Thanks, Tony! All of us had the BEST day!

We fish and laughed and caught fish the whole time we were there, we had a half day fishing trip and we all caught our limit! It was so much fun. We all caught our first salmon in Alaska . Tony made us feel right at home and he talks to you and makes the fishing trip feel so special. He has good rates and he don't rob your blind. We just loved it and if we ever go back to Alaska we will be looking capt. Tony up. Thanks again! From Rita & Tim Adkins
