Because Doc Warner’s provides your fishing necessities, you only need to bring your personal items. Your fish will be your checked luggage so try to pack your personal items into a carryon. This will eliminate excess baggage fees. The following list will help you know what to bring on an Alaska fishing trip and how much to pack. Some items can be purchased at the Pro Shop.
