Fishing and catching fish are two different things when you think about it. You can go out looking for fish to find, but catching one on your own isn’t guaranteed. Presentations, baits, and techniques that have been effective before can leave you with a pile of weeds and nothing to show for your efforts on your next outing. Being in unfamiliar territory or new waters will only add to your uncertainty. That is why it is highly recommended to evaluate and assess Alaska fishing guides before making the journey.
