The Slagle family is third generation Alaskans that own and operate Baranof Fishing Excursions and the Alaska Fish House from our classic fishing marina in the heart of downtown Ketchikan. During the last decade we have had the honor of introducing over 30,000 individual fishermen to some of the best fishing in Alaska. You can find our marina at the end of Main Street adjacent to historic Thomas Basin. Whether you are visiting us for the day or for a week, we would love to take you fishing in Ketchikan.

Our website is not just an invitation to enjoy fishing with us, but more importantly an introduction to a community that we are immensely proud of. Ketchikan is truly a Fish Story.

Baranof Fishing's owner, fishing in Ketchikan
During our summers over 50 charter boats venture out daily, taking guests into the fish filled wilderness surrounding Ketchikan. Most of the charter boats are captained by local boys such as Sonny Campbell or Clay Slanaker that have spent decades on the water and are truly extraordinary fishermen. Artists Ray Troll, Dave Rubin, Terry Pyles and many others, have perfected the art of painting fish with their work featured throughout Ketchikan. Ketchikan's restaurants are well known for their fresh seafood with the Alaska Fish House, Bar Harbor Restaurant and the Cape Fox Lodge receiving high marks for their seafood among locals. By the 1930's Ketchikan became known as the Salmon capitol of the world and the video stories of our canneries found throughout our website will impress you with the legacy of quality with which we can and ship salmon worldwide.

Our heroes growing up in Ketchikan are the commercial fisherman. In our "Learn About" sections you will find videos that take you seining with Russ Cockrum, Trolling with Rory & Marion Bifoss, Gillnetting with Ole & LaDonna Gunderson, or Longlining with Mike Jewett plus many other fine Ketchikan fishing adventures.

Enjoy...... and Welcome to our Ketchikan.
