We went out salmon fishing with Pat from Avid Anglers while in Ketchikan. It was an absolutely amazing experience! Pat was a wonderful captain and was very friendly and you can tell he really loves what he does. He picked us up near the cruise line docks and helped us get our fishing licenses figured out while we cruised to... More

We flew into Ketchikan from Northern California to fish with Cap'n Larry on a warm and sunny August day. (The first time we fished with Cap'n Larry, it was a cruise excursion.) Day 1: On Sunday, 8/28/16, we spent the afternoon salmon fishing with Cap'n Larry. It was light and breezy and we caught a decent amount of fish, releasing... More

My husband Augie and I booked this fishing charter not knowing what to expect. We were going on an Alaskan cruise August 15 and wanted to fish for salmon when we docked in Ketchikan. When we got off the cruise ship, there was Captain Pat with my name on a sign just like they said. We liked him right away!... More

Captain Pat was great! We had beautiful weather and great fishing! There were four people on board and we kept Captain Pat busy. We caught a total of 15 pink salmon. Great day of fishing! I would highly recommend them for a great fishing adventure!

I booked a four-hour charter on July 31, 2016 and I have tears in my eyes as I write this because of the wonderful memories of that day. As stated in other reviews, the boat was waiting alongside the cruise ship, licensing was quick, and we cast off shortly after the customers assembled. While transiting out to the trolling area,...

We booked a four hour salmon fishing tour and as novices were a little nervous how the day would go. Larry was very knowledgable and showed great patience in working with all of the novices on the boat. We got our limit within 2 hours. Great experience would definitely come back again.

Captain Larry picked us up for an afternoon of salmon fishing right at our cruise ship dock. We had lines in the water in about 15 minutes and hooked a pair of salmon within 10 minutes. Larry has a vast amount of knowledge about the fishing and the area in general. We boated at least a dozen salmon and had... More

I booked a 4 hour salmon fishing charter for 4 people with Captain Larry of Avid Angler Charters on July 1st 2016. Everything from the booking to receiving the fish back home was perfectly executed. Captain Larry provides a 5-star service which I would recommend to anyone. My wife, my parents and I were on a 7 day Alaskan cruise... More

Altogether Capt Larry (and his brother) took 7 of us salmon fishing on July 9, 2016. All of us each caught our limit of 6 pink salmon in less that 2 1/2 hours. That's 42 pink salmon in less that 150 minutes. There were an additional 2 silver/coho salmon and 1 king salmon. That averages out to a fish every... More

When we booked our trip to Alaska, salmon fishing was my husband's "must do"...even though he gets sea sick very easily and I'm pregnant. I was a little nervous, but found Larry who had a restroom on his boat and figured we would go for it. I am so so so glad we did! This was the best part of... More
