Who Will You Spend Your Alaskan Fishing Trip With?

People from all walks and stages of life can enjoy an Alaskan fishing trip. It’s the perfect mixture of adventure and relaxation, and you get to end the trip with a freezer full of delicious salmon to enjoy for days or weeks on end. But what can really make your Alaskan fishing trip special is the person or people you choose to share the experience with.

Whether your Alaskan fishing trip is a romantic getaway, a crucial team building exercise or a solo adventure, it will likely teach you a lot about yourself and your companions. Here at Phantom Tri-River Charters, we’ve seen firsthand how fishing can bring people closer and instill new confidence, patience and appreciation for the world around us. Here’s a look at the different people you might choose to spend your Alaskan fishing trip with:

  • Your significant other: Whether you’re celebrating 25 years of marriage or are looking for a fun first vacation with your new flame, an Alaskan fishing trip can be a unique and surprisingly romantic trip for couples. Working together to achieve a common goal is always good for relationships, and sharing an adventure together will likely bring you closer together. And if nothing else, the cold weather provides a good excuse for plenty of cuddling.
  • Your family: Although we don’t recommend bringing very young children on an Alaskan fishing trip, families with teenagers or adult children will find a new way to bond through fishing and exploring the Alaskan wilderness. Friendly sibling fishing competitions, the chance to teach each other new things and the experience of getting away from outside technology and other distractions all make Alaskan fishing trips an ideal family vacation.
  • Your friends: Sure, you like your friends’ social media posts and text them constantly, and you probably meet up for dinner or coffee whenever you can. But when was the last time you spent some real quality time with your close friends? Fishing is known for being a great opportunity to converse and bond, so if you’re able to take a week or so to get away from jobs, family commitments and whatever else consumes your day to day life, take the chance to reconnect with your core friend group and book an Alaskan fishing trip.
  • Your coworkers: If you work for a company that embraces outdoor living and adventurism, then an Alaskan fishing trip could make for a great leadership retreat or reward for excellent employees. You’ll give your coworkers and employees a reason to love where they work, and you’ll likely end up with a more in-sync, harmonious group of workers.
  • Yourself: One of the most important yet often neglected relationships any person has is the one they have with themselves. Take advantage of an Alaskan fishing trip to gain some much needed “me time,” unwind and break free from technology. You’ll also get the opportunity to meet new people from all over the world, and traveling solo allows you to really immerse yourself in new friendships.
