Fishing Guide Captain Mel Erickson.
The Alaskan Gamefisher now booking exciting fishing trips for Alaska
Salmon & Halibut Lodging Packages at our Lodge located in Soldotna
wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for such an excellent
fishing trip this last summer. The memory of both my father and I
pulling in two 45lbs Salmon on our first day was absolutely priceless.
We will never forget the excitement we felt as both the fish came into
the boat. The smiles on our faces were ear to ear.
As for your crew on the day we went Halibut fishing, they could not have
been more friendly and informative. They new right where to go in order
to catch halibut and our lines hooked almost immediately after our hooks
touched bottom. For being a guy who doesn’t fair too well in open sea, I
couldn’t have had a better time. Your guys really know what they are
doing out there.
Thank you for being the reason my freezer is full.
I posted a couple videos of the trip for everyone to enjoy.

Capt. Mel Erickson
Our gallery of photos on this website attests to the incredible size of
the Salmon you’ll find in these parts of Alaska. Trophy salmon of up to
90 pounds have been pulled from the waters of Kenai Peninsula. Big fish
are the norm.
For saltwater King Salmon, the best time of year to fish is in May. The Kenai River King Salmon run hard in June and July offering anglers an
excellent selection and big fun. You’ll find plenty of Silver Salmon in
the Kenai River in August, and Saltwater Salmon/Halibut trips are
scheduled in August too. On even numbered years, the pink salmon will
also be prevalent in August. Captain Erickson is an expert on the movement of salmon in these parts,
and his daily fishing reports can be relied upon to ensure a good day’s
Alaskan Halibut – Even Bigger Than Your Imagination
If your angler’s dreams include reeling in an Alaskan Halibut as big as
a truck, you won’t be disappointed by Alaskan Gamefisher. Our gallery of
photos on this website shows the amazing Halibut that have been caught
here in the cold waters of Alaska's Cook Inlet on the Kenai Peninsula.
Halibut fishing is open year-round, with all summer being excellent. At
Alaskan Gamefisher we fish from May through September. Alaskan
Gamefisher has provided halibut charters since 1989 & has never been
skunked in 21 years. Our Halibut fishing Captains have several years
experience fishing the second largest tidal influenced inlet in the
world. So when you’re ready for an Alaskan Halibut Fishing Adventure,
we’re ready too. Plan ahead, because the season fills up quickly.
