Sept, 2006, Classic Alaska Charters hosted Keven Strehle and his production/traveling fishing/exploring crew on a 5 day, 4 night overnight Alaskan adventure to document all the action as it would typically unfold on a trip with guests. With 2 High Def digital video camera’s (one for underwater shots!) Keven and Jason went to work filming right away…….and could hardly put the cameras down with so much going on! From the huge shrimp hauls, to fast Halibut action (above and below the water!) to big Brown Bears feeding on salmon in the river just yards away, and with freshwater fly and spin fishing for big n bright Coho Salmon in spectacular wilderness settings.  A lot of time and effort (and fun!) went into this production and I truly believe it will be an outdoor video experience you all will certainly enjoy……and will be talking about for a long time.

Here’s what the host, cameraman, and Emmy Award winning producer Keven Strehle had to say about his trip with Captain Rob of Classic Alaska Charters

“Wow! Is all I can say about our latest adventure. I just returned from a trip with Classic Alaska Charters based out of Ketchikan, AK. Captain Rob Scherer showed us what “wilderness” means in Alaskan.

We arrived in Ketchikan on a cool, rainy day after a short flight from Seattle and immediately began prepping for a journey unequalled in my 20 years in this business. After topping off the tanks, we boarded Capt. Rob’s gorgeous 40-foot Bayliner and headed out. The weather was crappy and was supposed to bad at the end of the week. Rob said we may have to come in a day earlier than anticipated which immediately put the pressure on us to get the goods early. As we reached our cruising speed, Rob pointed out that the spots we were going are “trade secret locations” and further explained he will be vague about where we are going because he wants to protect his livelihood. Something all of us aboard the ship understood. It also made us think to ourselves, “wow, this is going to be fun. The goal of every fisherman is the secret honey hole!”

I can tell you one thing, we were not disappointed. During the 5-day trip we really got one heck of a introduction to the Alaskan Wilderness. Kayaking within 20 yards of feeding Brown Bears, private fishing on some of the most remote waters I have ever been to and great action both large and small. While not shooting I caught a 100 pound Halibut. Butch caught two nice ones in about an hour. The group caught every species of fish imaginable; Coho, Kings, Pinks, Yellow Eye, Lings and of course the giant Halibut.

This trip was a one that provided memories that will last for a lifetime! Wanna know the best part of it? We captured it all on video. From every angle we had it covered. I can’t wait to start editing.”
