Hello, I just got stationed here in Alaska last Aug but was not able to get out and get much fishing done. This year is my first full summer here and want to do as much fishing as possible. Is there any good places to salt water fish from the bank or fishing piers around. I would love to be able to go out salt water fishing for halibut from a boat but just can't afford it. If there are any good place to fish where and when is the best time of year to catch what kinds of fish. Also what type of rigs do I need to fish here. I am stationed at For Richardson so I am sure Whittier is the closest place for me to go regularly any information or help would be great. Thanks everyone.
