My wife and I are planning our first trip to Alaska in July of 2010. We are planning on flying into Anchorage renting a car and seeing as much as we can for the week we will be there. We are planning on doing some kind of a 1 day remote fly in salmon trip, and an offshore halibut trip, and past that we have not determined yet. The only arrangments we have made is some hotel lodging so far. The reason I am posting is that I am a member of floridasportsman.com fishing forum and we always have people asking for advice on charters etc.. I know it's always better to get information from a local vs. googling for a charter captain. So I was hoping someone could point me towards an experienced Cpt. who has a reputation for finding the fish. I also thought I would check and see if anyone is interested in trading a trip. I run a 29' Seavee out of the Jacksonville/St. Augustine area and we have a great fishery here. We have a great wahoo (December -May) and dolphin (April/May)run that I could take 2-3 people out on forin return fishing for my wife and I while we are in Alaska. I do catch fish here and have plenty of pics to prove that, also it would be very easy to verify on the NE section of the floridasportsman.com. We also have have plenty of king mackeral, sailfish, snapper, grouper, cobia and just about any other fish that swims in the Atlantic. At the very least I hope some of you locals can steer me in the right direction for a charter/or who to stay away from. If you ever need any assitance or advice in Florida just let me know.
