I have fished both Westport, multiple times since 1962 and Southeast AK (Petersburg and Sitka), the Kenai and Dillingham AK. My father was one of the original fisheries biologists hired to staff the newly created US Bureau of Commerial Fisheries under Roosevelt. Weather is everything. For the same $$$ you can have more days, more chances, in Washington. Although Westport charters have a lot of competition and prices are cheap, Neah Bay, on the Reservation, is very similar to fishing Alaska. It is beautiful, comparable to SE AK, as well. Ling cod trips, this year 2021 trips out of Westport were spectacular. The weather was favorable and they got a lot of fabulous ling in the 20-30 lb range. In 2019 my Westport Ling trip got weathered out. My 2018 trip to Sitka was also a week of terrible weather. I never got out of the harbor.
