Default Recommendation for Ketchikan small fishing outfit?

We don't want to book with princess as I have read that the salmon excursion has at least 20 people sharing the reel..any small outfits that anyone has tried? Price?

My family has gone with Northern Lights several times out of Ketchikan always with raves. A top operator.

I just came back and my wife and I caught 10 Salmon out of Ketchikan. We walked across the street from th cruise ship dock and there was a small shop that has fishing boats going out all day. No reservations were needed for us. We paid $140 for 4 hours. I am sure we could have talked them down, but we didn't feel like haggling, and our soon to be fishing mates were standing right there. The sad part is I don't remember the name of the place. It was across the street from the cruise ship dock and the visitor center / interenet cafe place. Not the place in the same building as the internet cafe. Al was our skipper.

There is a place called Cedars that will prepare your catch, freeze it, and shipo it to you. Tomorrow, I will receive 30 pounds of frexhly frozen salmon fillets!!

We loved the fishing experience, even though it was a bit pricey. It is a memory we will always have!

There were 5 of us one the boat, max was 6. We each had our own gear, and we traded gear every 20-30 minutes.

We just returned from Alaska and we booked with Northern Lights and each of us caught our salmon limit for the day. Ken is great, professional, kind, and he really knows his stuff. I would definitely go with him again!
