Bareboat Fishing, Unguided Fishing or Self-Guided Fishing… No matter what you call it, Ketchikan offers anglers some of the best fishing around.


Our Self Guided Alaska Fishing Fleet Can’t Be Beat!

We shopped around to find the perfect self-guided boats for fishing in Southeast Alaska and we found them.  Our custom built 23′ Silver Streak hardtops and North River’s rugged 21′ Seahawk are ideal for unguided fishing the waters of Inside Passage, Clover Pass and Beam Canal.  The Seahawk has a variable pitched welded aluminum hull that starts out steep in the bow and flattens out in the stern.  This provides for a smooth ride with lots of stability and it is a very safe boat.  These boats will safely handle much heavier seas than the average operator.

Our unguided Alaska fishing boats can seat six people and will fish four rods.  The covered top, welded windshield and helm steering will keep you and your gear dry all day.

We have seven (7) 23′ and two (2) 21′ self guided boats rigged with the following equipment:

  • All USCG required life jackets, safety equipment & anchor with 400 feet of rope
  • 115-hp or 140-hp 4-stroke outboard main engine & 8-hp kicker
  • Garmin GPSMAP 541 color GPS chart plotter / Sounder, VHF Radio
  • Two downriggers with 10-lb balls, Scotty release clips, gaff, net & halibut harpoon
  • 8′ medium action salmon rods & Penn GT2 320 reels with 25-lb Izorline mono

  • Fishing tackle including snelled hook leaders, flashers, lead weights and halibut hooks
