HI Kelly!

I can't recommend a particular charter, as the last few times I've been in Ketchikan we've done our own fishing from the Can Can. My advice would be to call or eMail several that catch your interest, and see what they've got to say. Be sure you're talking to the operator of a specific boat, and not a broker or fleet manager. Know whether you're getting a private charter or a shared tour (shared tour = shared catching, shared fish and other folks you don't know.) I would ask about what the tour includes (all will be about the same) and look the specific vessel you'll be on up at the US Coast Guard's 5-Star Safety Program website (http://www.mxak.org/fivestar/5star.htm) to see how they're listed.

As for what to expect, if you're on a longer charter (3/4 or full-day) there should be plenty of halibut and rock-fish available. Salmon runs vary a bit depending where you are - In Juneau, we've got a wonderful late summer coho run that usually lasts well into October. Ketchikan is farther south, and may not have the later runs. Again, however, this is a question for your boat captain who will know the area and run-timings like they were a family member's birthday! ;-)

Happy Alaska Travels!
-Case
