I have never been to Alaska. I think the time is right in my life to spend some time looking at the Mountains, glaciers, panning for gold, fishing for salmon and halibut, and checking out the bears.
The first seminar I attended recently almost scared me out of my socks. What can one reasonably expect to pay for a guided salmon fishing trip, with a day of halibut fishing, and some bear watching?? I figure I am going to go for a 7-10 days. Airfare is going to be about a $1000 from the East Coast, at today's rates. I am hoping to do it this year, but, next year is not out of the question either.
I would like to know of any great guides, and also of those who should be avoided. One may send me private messages on these if they chose. It is for my personal benefit and I don't kiss and tell.
I realize this this is subjective in that I may be fishing for 8-12 hours a day, and three hot meals may be condensed. So, pricing is hard to target..
I plan on bringing my own spinning tackle cause I am not the best fly caster. Have only hooked myself, so far, once with a fly.. Probably won't be the last if the wind kicks up.
Any help the experienced can lend would be appreciated.
