Just spent a week on a cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage. Docked at Skagway for a day and noticed some locals fishing an inlet as I was walking into town. Ended up buying a $30.00 combo rod and reel along with 4 lures at the local hardware store. $20.00 day license and I was set for afternoon. Turned out to be a good decision. We caught 11 pink salmon in about 3 hrs.

Were you able to take them back on to the Ship?
I doubt it, not to mention that most look very ripe and rotten as far as edibility goes.

Thanks for sharing!

$30 combo rod and reel, a $20 license and a couple lures! Now that's fishing Alaska on the cheap! Looks like you had a blast.

Funny...I just returned from an Alaskan cruise too...I didn't fish in Skagway but sure recognize that little pond you are fishing. When I was there, it was loaded with pinks and the chums were getting pretty ugly.

I was more tempted to fish in Ketchikan....I liked the stream better and you could get away from the people a little easier. But, it is always fun to catch salmon.
