Depending on the time of year, we see them rank from 40 to 70 lbs. What does it take to haul these Alaska fishing monsters into the boat? Well, for starters, patience.

Warm clothes. The weather changes up here fast so it’s best to bring along a few warm jackets even in the summer.
Waterproof bag. So many Alaska fishing folks have found out pretty quickly iPhones and smart ones alike tend to get dunked into the water without warning. We recommend you bring along a camera with a dry bag designated for it.
