We will be in Sitka the beginning of August on a cruise. My teens have just told me they want to fish. We don’t have experience with this. Thoughts on 1/2 trip for novices? River vs deep water?

Also if we catch fish how on earth do we get them home? We still have 3 more days on the cruise after Sitka....

1. Re: Fishing

Google and talk with some charter captains to see what will be running best while you are there. I would think bottom fishing will be easier to learn for the inexperienced. There will be a fish processer in town that will be happy to package, freeze, store and ship your catch to you (for a price). I don't know if the ship would allow you to use freezer space.
