Why Ketchikan for self guided fishing?

Great variety of both saltwater and freshwater fishing.

Large runs of all five species of salmon; nearby halibut holes; Ling Cod; Red Snapper; excellent Dungeness crab grounds 20 minutes from house.

All weather fishing; the ability to fish open ocean water nearby and protected inside waters.

Be on the water the same day you leave home; Ketchikan is a direct 1.5 hour flight from Seattle.

Why Pennock Island for self guided fishing?

A ten minute boat run from the airport, you will be fishing the day you land.

Great mid way location between south and north fishing grounds.

15 minute run to Dungeness crab fishing grounds.

24 hour use of boat with no curfew.

Herring and crab bait on site.

Authentic Alaskan home milled from lumber on the land.

High end kitchen appliances, knives and pans.

And the other great reason to come:

A stunning sunset location with a hot tub!

Peak seasons for fish species in our area:

King Salmon: May, June and July.

June 1 - July 30th: Terminal Harvest for King Salmon at Herring Cove: Non residents fishing restrictions do not apply: No size limit; six per day; no non resident annual limit. Herring Cove is about 20 minutes by boat.

Silver Salmon: July, August, September.

Our home is set on Pennock Island, a three minute boat ride from Ketchikan. There are no noisy roads here, just trails leading along the beach and through the forest. Pennock Island has all the advantages of being minutes away by boat from shopping, restaurants and attractions but a world away from the hustle and bustle.

Relax after a day on the water on the expansive decks overlooking the water, perfect for cooking your catch on the BBQ. A hydrotherapy spa faces west for relaxing soaks as the sun sets.

Our Hewescraft Pro V comes fully equipped to fish and we offer on site classes to catch salmon, halibut and crab if you are starting out fishing or looking to improve your skills.

Included in your stay is our 2013 20' Hewescraft Pro V Hard top with extended transom. The Pro V offers a deeper hull for a smoother ride, a wider beam and more deck space with built in insulated fish box, wash down, hydraulic steering and electric trim tabs. Trucker seats offer a smooth ride and a built in stereo to listen to the radio.. Powered with a fuel efficient 140hp Suzuki and a 8hp kicker. The PRO V is also rigged with downriggers and is ready to fish and provides the ultimate comfort for up to groups of four. Larger groups can rent a second boat at $450/day.

If a second runabout boat is needed for those not fishing and staying at the house we have a Lund skiff at $175/day.

Salmon and Halibut poles are included in the package but you are responsible for tackle. We have a supply of tackle for sale on site and can help get you rigged up with the right lures for the time you are visiting. Fishing licenses are also available here or you can purchase in advance on the State of Alaska website.

There is no time curfew on self guided fishing boats which means you can get the 4am bite.

Fish processing and packaging is included so you can drop your catch at the end of the day and have it held and boxed for your flight home. We do not cover your shipping charges if you choose to mail it back home. If you wish to process your own fish we have a room onsite with a vac packer.

We provide a courtesy pick up upon your arrival in Ketchikan at the airport baggage claim for Alaska Airlines flights 67 and 69 which arrive here respectively at 3.54pm and 7.41pm.

You will receive a complete boat orientation upon arrival and will be asked to sign a release from for liability. We will also go over the fishing in our local area and how to run any of the fishing gear you maybe unfamiliar with.

If this is the first time fishing our waters you would be well advised to hire a guide for the first morning who will teach you the local area and how to fish it. Costs are $200 per person with a minimum of four, for four hours. Full day is $400 per person for six to eight hours with a minimum of four persons.

On your departure day, check out is at 10am, we can either drop you at the airport or in town. Alaska Airlines will allow bags to be checked in four hours prior to departure and there is a small ferry you can then take to the town side if you want to spend your last hours visiting town. Alaska Airlines flight 60 leaves at 9.02am.

Our home was built by hand from yellow cedar trees cut from the surrounding forest and milled locally and offers:

Upper floor:

Large king bedroom with one king bed and two twin beds. Exceptional water and forest views.

1 bedroom with queen and 2 singles. Water and forest views.

Our home offers a wonderful beach for exploring right outside the front door with excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. Trails lead to remote beaches on the backside of the island. Here you can wander the beach in solitude beach combing or relaxing in peace with a book.

Your hosts Kim and Richard live nearby and are available to help with any concerns during your stay. We enjoy sharing the island lifestyle and you are welcome to join in island adventures; beach combing the back side of the island, hiking in the forest and muskeg; towing home a beach log for firewood, splitting and stacking wood for winter or going crabbing for Dungeness Crab.
