1. Good - excellent ocean fishing conditions. Light marine winds typically found during the month of May provide us with a calm ocean to navigate to any of the prime fishing grounds.

2. Good - excellent halibut fishing. Halibut fishing in Sitka is typically pretty even throughout the summer months but May can be a little better since there is a lot less fishing pressure vs other months of the summer. The sometimes calmer ocean makes it easier for us to target them.

3. An excellent opportunity for some deep sea fishing for black cod (Sablefish). Some consider this to be the tastiest fish in the Pacific Ocean. We agree.

4. Airfare to and from Sitka, Alaska (SIT) is typically the most reasonable during the month of May. We have a commercial airport here in Sitka, Alaska airlines & Delta airlines fly in/out during the summer months.

5. Average - good King salmon fishing is found during the month of May. In 2019, the King salmon fishing was good - excellent in May. Check out the 2019 May Sitka, AK fishing report.
