Fully Guided Fishing & Shrimping

We know you all love fishing here in Southeast Alaska, but have you ever had the opportunity to enjoy fresh caught shrimp? Shrimping in Alaska is typically an activity that only the locals have the pleasure of enjoying, but we make it fun and simple to harvest a bounty of Spotted Prawns, a.k.a. shrimp.

 

This adventure is incorporated into your fully guided fishing package, and typically requires between 3-4 days. Your Captain will give you plenty of instructions, but you will enjoy the experience of baiting, dropping, and pulling your own pots. Each of our boats has a handy pot puller, which makes bringing the pots up from the bottom a breeze. Once on board, you will filter through your catch, throwing back hitchhikers such as starfish and octopus, while keeping those tasty prawns. Back at the dock, your shrimp will be bagged and frozen with the rest of your catch.  This is a great way to add a delicious variety to any fish box!
