Ketchikan's Aurora Sportfishing's owner Captain Anthony M. Knuteson has a fishing addiction!

     

Captain Tony in Ketchikan ROCKS. Whether bottom-fishing for our local Halibut or fishing for our famous King Salmon he specializes in catching fish and having fun too. Ketchikan is known as the " Salmon Capital of the World!" Lucky for us that means we have more salmon than we know what to do with.

We had a great time with Capt. Tony. He told us all about living in Alaska. My husband caught a 22 lb King and I caught a 15 lb. We had a great time and you should not miss fishing with him!

The best part of the trip was the down to earth approach of fishing and letting us feel like we were the fishermen/women. Tony helped us to understand what we needed to do to be successful in catching and not... More

We had an amazing trip out with Captain Tony! I know it can't possibly always be this good, but we had a ton of fun! We had a 4 hour trip booked as an excursion from our cruise ship. It was cold and wet - I understand that this kind of rain is pretty typical - but we fished until... More

We booked a halibut trip with Captain Tony prior to visiting Ketchikan on a cruise. The booking was easy, and he kept in touch with us through the process. Tony is very knowledgeable about the fishing grounds and by the end of the day, we kept a combination of pea cod and rock fish totaling 18 fish. We caught a... More
