Alaska Fishing 10552
Alaska offers many possibilities for deep sea fishing along its rugged coast. Popular ports like Homer and Sitka are a bustle with charter boats and fishers. What is increasingly more difficult to find is a truly remarkable ocean fishery. This select locations is such a fishery. The Gulf of Alaska in general is a steady arch with the continental shelf following the same arch 100 or so miles off-shore. This pattern is broken by the uninhabited Kayak Island that suddenly juts straight offshore and the shelf in turn cuts toward it, creating a major upwelling. This upwelling creates a nutrient rich feeding area where fish of all types gather to feed. On this trip up to Cordova, Alaska, you will have the chance to catch trophy fish in both salt and freshwater.
