When it comes to world class fishing getaways, Alaska is one of the most sought after destinations. Alaska is known as the ‘last frontier’ state, and it is no secret why. There is more wildlife than people, and the mountains and landscapes are beautiful and scenic.
When it comes to planning Alaskan fishing trips, few items are more important than doing your research and planning well in advance. Let’s look at a few important tips to help you plan your ideal fishing getaway to Alaska.
First of all, you need to decide what type of fishing you will be doing when travelling to Alaska. This is vital, especially when you consider all the travel problems that occur in Alaska. You will want to choose a specific type of fishing, and try to stick with it for the entire trip. This will allow you to stay in one place, limiting the chance that you get stuck in an airport.
Once you choose they type of fishing (whether it be deep sea fishing or backcountry fly fishing), it will be easier for you to pick your destination. If you will be doing some deep sea fishing, you will want to choose one of the coastal fishing towns, such as Homer, Seward, or Ketchikan. These towns have a huge amount of charters and amenities that cater to tourists and deep sea fishermen, especially if you want to do some Alaska halibut fishing. If you want to spend your time in the backcountry, you will want to choose a remote location that offers the amenities that you desire.
Make sure you plan your trip well in advance, and be sure to book early. The most popular locations fill up early in the season. Reading some online reviews or fishing forums will help you to narrow down your options. Remember these tips while planning your perfect Alaska fishing getaway.
