Deep Sea Fishing Alaska

If you’ve never been to Alaska or only fished in creeks or rivers, it may be time for you to try out deep sea fishing! There are some wonderful fish that can be found deep on the ocean floor of Elfin Cove and the surrounding area, that are fun to catch and a real delicacy for eating. Two of the most popular deep sea fish to catch are halibut and the many varieties of rockfish. We use special bait and weights to get your line down to the ocean floor so it can “bounce” and attract rockfish, or halibut.

Deep Sea Fishing Charters Alaska

While you can try to get the deep sea fishing experience on a one day trip or charter, it’s hard to go very far or try many different spots in the limited schedule of a one day charter. In contrast, staying for multiple days with us at Tanaku Lodge means that if deep sea fishing is what you’re hungry for, you can go to all sorts of spots and have the best chance of catching the deep sea monster to tell your grandkids about. Our captains know all the best places to go for deep sea fishing and to catch the fish you’re looking for, and will make your experience exciting, fun and above all memorable. We catch amazing and sometimes record-breaking fish every year, so if that’s your hope we’d love to give you a hand.

Meanwhile if you’re not too worried about the size of fish you catch or are even just letting your partner or buddy do most of the real fishing, the experience of boating through the gorgeous Alaska ocean and viewing our amazing mountains and vistas is like none other. We’re always seeing all sorts of incredible wildlife so even if fish aren’t your priority, you will most likely see seals, or orcas, or even a bald eagle if you’re lucky. 

Deep Sea Fishing Trips Alaska

One of the best parts for many Tanaku visitors happens after you finish your trip and we send you back to Juneau on a seaplane. We send our guests home with packages of excellently prepared fish fillets from the fish you caught! We have special boxes that are perfect for putting on the plane back to home, and are just shy of 50 pounds each to avoid too much hassle at the airport. The result is that you get to not only experience Alaska and all it has to offer here, but take home the taste of Alaska’s best fish with you. Deep sea fish like halibut and rockfish or favorites for many in the continental US, so we recommend finding a great recipe for your fillets and hosting friends to tell them all about your adventures, over a delicious meal of halibut fish tacos or Sichuan style sweet and sour rockfish.
