Father-in-law is coming up in late June, based on work I'll probably only have a day to take him fishing, he's never been to AK and will probably never be up here again... I'm thinking of taking him on a one day guided fly-in over to the Susitna with Rust's or someone similar for kings. Has anyone else done this trip? Are there better options?
My wife thinks a charter out of Seward for him, but the cost of getting halibut back to the lower 48 + the cost of the charter (CrackerJack) comes close to a fly-in, and I'm paying the bill. Don't think he'd necessarily enjoy the Kenai crowds and would be physically challenged if I try to walk him away from the crowds.
