The Ketchikan Alaska Fishing Boat
The double header is a 30 foot Baha Cruiser with a large deck area making it a great fishing platform. She’s powered with twin 225hp Yamaha Outboard's.
This delivers a combined 450 hp motor package that makes us one of the fastest boats in the Ketchikan fishing fleet. Getting to the fishing grounds faster gives us more time for actual fishing time instead of long run time. Also, if we need to beat the weather back to town or move to find fish we can do so quickly. I have an electric flush marine head on board.
Best Fishing Gear
I keep top of the line fishing gear in tip top shape. Scotty Downriggers, Penn Rods & Reels for halibut fishing and Penn Reels and Shimano Rods for Salmon fishing. I build a lot of my own gear, custom paint flashers, spoons, and I tie my own salmon flies to remain competitive and to stay ahead of the Ketchikan fleet. Most of my techniques are kept top secret and only shared amongst a couple other professional fishing guides I speak with. I have a very up to date electronics package. With a LCD Furuno Fish Finder and a standard horizon GPS chart plotter system. All safety equipment is up to date and exceeds US coast guard safety guidelines.
