We do hope you return for the 2018 summer season to Ketchikan. Sounds like you had an amazing trip with Skip and Louise of North End Charters. It is always benificial to research your charter company and choose a local fisherman who knows Ketchikan waters.

Great question! You do not need to bring a cooler. Boats have fish holds with ice. If you book an all day charter with us at Worman Sportfishing the processing of fish and vacuum packing is included.
