Full-Day Salmon Fishing Charter in Seward, Alaska

Our full-day silver salmon charters in Seward depart at 6 a.m. (7am after 08/20) and are offered mid-August through early September.  This trip is only offered as a Book the Boat– not individual seats. Boat running time can be 15 minutes to an hour and a half to the fishing grounds, depending on where the best fishing is! During the bulk of our season, we only sell combination fishing charters for all species due to the high demand and the amazing produce of our local fishery!

We focus on harvesting the full daily limit for silver salmon and rockfish on these Seward fishing trips, and enjoy great success! Filleting of your fish and a private hanging station back at the landing for photos are included in your adventure. Enjoy world-class silver salmon fishing in Alaska using purpose-built, made-in-the-USA fishing rods from Thrasher Rods and all hand-tied gear in house.

Silver Salmon

Salmon start their annual return to their freshwater streams in mid-July and August but can be caught in outer coastal waters starting in late June. Silver salmon average 8 to 20 lbs and are a lot of fun to catch. They put up a great fight on medium to light tackle and are exciting and fun to catch. The limits are six silvers inside the bay (an invisible line between Cape Resurrection and Cape Aialik) or three silvers outside the bay. You may have six salmon outside the bay, only three of which may be silvers (so you could have three silvers, two chum, and one pink for example). Or you can catch your three outside the bay, and come inside the bay to try to catch your additional three to fill the limit.

Depending upon the weather, tides, location, and time of year, we normally fish for salmon in water depths from a few feet offshore to 90 feet offshore. Usually “mooching” (drift fishing with bait or lures) provides the best results. Our Captains are avid salmon fishermen and have great knowledge and successful fishing techniques that they shares with you. Their extensive knowledge of our area gives them an edge on finding the right combination of techniques and location for finding salmon and getting them to bite.
