Frequently Asked Questions

Alaska Fishing Trips

What gear do we need?

The only gear that a person would need to bring is rain gear – all fishing gear is provided on all guided fishing trips. We also have fishing gear and hip boots available for rent for those who’d like to fish on their own, something that other guide services do not offer.

How much fish can we take with us?

There is no set limit on how much fish a person can take home with them. However, the State of Alaska has daily limits and yearly limits. For example, a person is allowed to keep 4 halibut for the year, with the limit being 2 per day. King salmon are the only fish that have an annual limit, which are 5 per person per year. All other species of salmon do not have an annual limit, just a daily limit. Your guide will inform you of all limitations at the time of your charter.

Most clients take home somewhere between 50 and 100 pounds of fish from 5 or more days of charters, which is not counting fishing they do on their own. Trust us when we say you will go home with smiles on your faces and your freezers full – we are good at what we do.

What kind of lodging do you have?

We have several types of lodging: cabins on the river to cabins overlooking the Cook Inlet and Aleutian Mountains. All of our lodging comes with in-unit kitchens, giving you the opportunity to save money by cooking your own meals. Our guests always tell us that we have a million-dollar view right out our back door.

Is it shared lodging?

Every cabin and mountain view lodging has separate rooms and bathrooms, so the only people you have to share with are the ones you bring along with you.

Do you have any discounts for military members?

We love to honor our Military by giving a 7% discount off all of our regular rates.

Is there a combo package with a lodge included?

All of our fishing packages include lodging. With so many options, you’ll certainly be able to find what you’re looking for in an Alaskan dream vacation!

What city will we fly into?

You will fly into the Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, Alaska. After that, you will drive down to Kenai and Soldotna on the Kenai Peninsula, located 150 miles south of Anchorage. Upon booking your trip, we will share several options for car rentals that will save you half of what you’d pay at the airport. Most of the fishing you’ll be doing is less than 50 miles from your lodging. Alaska is so big that “just down the road” means 50 miles.

How do we know where we’ll be staying before we book?

We will send you maps and have you sent to the place that you choose to stay at when booking we have several places for you to choose from on our web site under lodging please don’t hesitate to ask for help on finding the right place that fits your needs.

Is transportation from and back to the airport included or available?

We recommend using some of the car rentals that we use to save you money that are right next to the airport every one we send to them enjoy using them and saving money.

Are meals included or are restaurants nearby?

We do not provide meals but there are several restaurants 5 miles down the road. Take a look at this list of options for you to choose from. Do not hesitate to ask which ones we recommend! There are stores nearby to buy groceries so that you can prepare your own food on your own time. We want you to save money when you stay with us..

Is it possible to add fish processing to my package?

Most of our packages offer already offer 50-100 pounds of fish processing. Any additional fish processing is $1.50 per pound. Be sure to clarify with us what is included when you book your trip.

Do you accommodate large groups?

Absolutely. We frequently have groups of up to 90 visit us for business trips so we know how to accommodate a crowd.

Can you help us get down from Anchorage?

Everyone is responsible for getting to and from Anchorage on their own. You will want the freedom of a rental car, so it is a good idea to rent one from Anchorage.

Is water or snacks provided on the fishing boats?

We do not supply any snacks or water on the boats. If you ask, the girls will pack a lunch for you with food that you buy on your own. There will be an ice chest at the lodge for you to use while you are fishing with us. We will also give you an ice chest to bring your fish back from the charter.

Each guest will receive any itinerary along with a map so you will know the time and place that you need to meet your guides for each day of your visit.
