Is it advisable to hire a guide to fish silvers in Kodiak or can an average joe do well with some advice from a local bait shop? Also looking to charter for a day of Halibut and other deep salt water fish, any thoughts. I would also like to do a second day of halibut only; but don't want to pay a full day rate. In other words catch Halibut and return or is the ride to Halibut grounds too long. Thanks for any help. There are three of us.
