AAA Sportfishing Company offers sportfishing near Ketchikan Alaska. We fish for Salmon and Halibut and many other species in the protected waters of the inside passage. No rough seas! Cruise ship customers are our specialty. Capt. Jerry will meet you at your ship and we will depart immediately by boat to the fishing ground. A private and exclusive experience leaving you time to look around town before re boarding your ship. Beautiful scenery, wildlife and marine mammals are sighted while you fish. We have never had a client miss their ship and we never will. Capt. Jerry is 54 years old and will personally be taking you out on charter. He has been fishing his entire life and holds a 100 ton coast guard masters license. Capt. Jerry will keep you entertained while you fish answering all your questions about the area and points of interest.

After contacting Capt. Jerry via email, we conversed online and via telephone and arranged a salmon fishing excursion. Communication was efficient and I had no problems. The day of the fishing trip, he was right on time. We received our Alaska Fishing Licenses, covered fish processing fees, and off we went. What an absolutely fantastic excursion this was. We caught... More

We had a great 4 HR tour with Jerry. He's very knowledgeable about the area. He did his best to assist us in catching a 16lb silver salmon. We sent it home and look forward to enjoying it.

Jerry picked my family up on the exact same dock as our cruise ship, exactly on time. Even though we had no fishing experience we were able to catch 15 salmon. While waiting for fish to bite we talked with Jerry, who has hilarious stories; this was half the fun. He is funny and intelligent, but not politically correct; which... More

Just returned from a successful fishing day with Capt Jerry. He met me at the dock shortly after our cruise ship arrived. He was on time, his boat was clean and well prepared. Jerry shared his knowledge of the Ketchikan area, it's history and waterways. Of course, he was completely on top of his game fishing and I went home... More

Just before arriving Ketchikan on the Island Princess, my husband decided he and his buddy wanted to go halibut fishing. We checked with the locals and Jerry was recommended. Jerry was in constant contact prior to boarding his vessel. He gave updates on the fishing and recommended that my husband and his buddy try for salmon instead of halibut as... More

We had such a GREAT time fishing on Jerry's boat and hearing his hilarious and interesting stories, that it would probably have been ok even if we didn't catch any fish! But we caught SO many salmon and are now enjoying them at home. Jerry was patient with my lack of fishing skills and knows exactly where to find the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a private charter with Jerry. We had a great time! Jerry made every effort to make sure we caught a bunch of salmon and try bottom fishing for halibut. What an experince. The boat was very clean. We went aways from the cruise ships so we could enjoy the natural Alaskan secenery. I would highly... More

We stopped in Ketchikan on our Alaska cruise. My son was keen to go fishing so myself and my dad planned to go ashore and find a charter boat for the day. We hadn't planned ahead. (in this case it worked out perfect) I saw this boat docked right below where our ship was so we wandered down and met... More

Fishing with Captain Jerry was an awesome experience! Jerry was very knowledgeable about the waters we were fishing in and had us hooking up and yelling "Fish on" within minutes of heaving port. My only complaint was that we didn't book Jerry for a longer trip. Jerry took care of the processing and shipping of our Salmon, taking all worries... More
