We just came back from a 7/12 south on the Coral. Juneau was not a great fishing port. We whale watched there. We did fish in Ketchikan for salmon and caught 17 cohos and pinks, which we had processed and shipped home. I would definately chech with some Alaska fishing charters. Call them most are toll free. If you like Halibut, Seward and Homer are the mother load. We didn't fish there but we saw what the boats brought in. One was 195 lbs. . We will go back someday and I can assure you that the area around Seward will be one place we will go.
