Come to this downtown harbor to see salmon-fishing boats, longliners, and crabbers, as well as guide-operated sport-fishing boats and personal sailboats. There are 250 slips here, accounting for roughly one-third of the boats in Kodiak. Walk the docks and see if you can identify a trawler, seiner, or crabber. The fishermen will have already “pitched” their catch, but you can still watch them chopping bait, mending nets, or shoving off for another trip. A true fishing town, the fleet is active every month but December; in 2010 their collective catch was worth $130 million.
