Deep Sea Fishing in Alaska (Kenai Peninsula)

It’s the time of year when recreational sport fishing in Alaska really takes off again.

Here are a few photos of a recreational fishing trip I made with friends two years ago.


Here we are with hands full of yelloweye.218078_10150294552308289_7770737_n

Here we are with some rock fish or “black beauty” as they are affectionately referred to among local Kenai Peninsula.

Where did we go sport fishing in Alaska?  On the Kenai Peninsula. That’s all I can tell you.

I the fall you can also fish for halibut, lingcod, and some salmon.  That is an excellent Alaska fishing trip.

Please share this on FacebookTwitter, or reddit.

      • What does it taste like? Is it a fatty fish? I was thinking it looked like a snapper and found out…it was. I don’t think I’ve ever had snapper. I’m more a salmon and freshwater eel girl.


      • No. Sadly not. I only ever eat it when I’m back home in California, where I can find really well prepared unagi. Oh, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

        I think the fish you are referring to is tikin xic, which is basted with adobo and achiote, all wrapped up and earth-baked. Good stuff. Really popular here. With roasted habanero sauce, it is to die for! Never was much of a spicy food person until I came to Mexico and I’d have to say that habaneros are the best!


      • Well the Yucatan is certainly the height of culinary expression in Mexico, sorry d.f.. I have visited some places out west where the only thing to eat is a salchicha or a huevo on a medium with equal parts mayo and ketchup.

        Unagi. Hell ya. Thats the stuff.


      • Before you go back to DF (if you ever go), talk to me. I will give you a list of all the places with good eating. And I’m not talking about snooty, high brow fare (though I know some as well). I’m talking hole-in-the-wall, local hot spots.

        Hey, I was a starving student when I was there. I know where it’s at!

        And yes, what I would do for a nice unagi on a bed of rice, that comes from a Japanese rice paddy. Kokuho Rose has nothing on it!


      • I am absolutely dying to get my hands on a copy! I even sent my parents a copy and they said they liked it! I get a little misty-eyed even when I watch the trailer. Goofy, I know….


      • Thank you so much, Mike! You’d better get that moose ready, mister! And I hope you have a bit of a sweet tooth. I make a mean carrot cake. 😉
