Fishing Kenai, Kasilof, and Cook Inlet
***Now offering guided halibut fishing***
Thank you for your interest in fishing with Hooked For Life Guide Service. We appreciate your visit to our website and would enjoy guiding you on your visit to Alaska. We hope you will give us the opportunity.
All our trips are fully guided, meaning we provide all the rods, tackle, bait, and gear required for the trip. We offer both 1/2 day and full day charters to fit your schedule. Our half day trips last 5 1/2 to 6 hours on the water and our full day trips run 8 to 10 hours. We can also customize trips to fit your needs.
On your charter you'll have the chance to sit back and relax in a comfortable boat, while fishing for what might be the next big record. We have power, drift, and saltwater boats available giving us the flexibility to fish either river or the saltwater depending on your needs.
We are located near the town of Soldotna, Alaska in the center of the Kenai Peninsula. Soldotna is located about 150 miles south of Anchorage on the Sterling Highway, a scenic 3 hour drive or a short 20 minute flight.
With the exception of saltwater King Salmon fishing, our fishing season runs from May through September. We specialize in salmon fishing, but can arrange halibut charters, fly outs, and lodging as well.
