Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of our most asked questions! Alaska has a lot different laws and regulations when it comes to catching and keeping fish. From freshwater lakes and ponds to the ocean saltwater, we do our best to be as straightforward and honest on any trip. The only surprise you should have on your Alaskan Adventure is how hard the fish fight!

Do you offer lodging?

    

Unfortunately we do not offer lodging at this time, however there are numerous places to stay in Willow, Wasilla, Talkeetna and Kodiak. See our "Recommendations" for a list of our favorites!

 

What kind of packages do you offer?

 

We offer a variety options custom tailored to your specific interests and needs. Therefore, you let us know what you’re looking for and we can accommodate!

How much is it for a a full day trip?

Depending on what type of fish you are after, we can do full day trips including lunch and non alcoholic beverages. These prices vary with each adventure so best to contact us with your specific interests and we can give you exact pricing!

Can we continue fishing after we’ve caught our limit?

 

Depending on which adventure you choose, you may or may not continue fishing after retaining your daily limit. Once you have retained you limit of salmon, you are no longer permitted to fish for the rest of the day in any waters where that species is present per Alaska Regulations. This is a big reason for our half day salmon trips. However, if on a combo charter on Kodiak Island, you may continue fishing for other saltwater species after retaining your limit of halibut, rockfish, lingcod, or salmon. 

 

Are there any other fish such as trout or char on the salmon trips that we can target?

 

Yes! There are wild trout populations in nearly every stream we fish! However, these fish are best targeted prior to targeting salmon as once you’ve kept your limit of salmon, you cannot fish for any other species where those salmon are present in that same day. 

 

How much are fishing licenses?

 

Alaska fishing licenses vary depending on how many days you would like to fish. See the Alaska Department of Fish and Game link on our "Recommendations" page for more information.

 

Can I keep the fish I catch and take it home with me? 

 

Yes! Except for our jet boat king salmon trips, all other trips you are allowed to keep and take home as much fish as the daily bag limit allows for that species!

 

How do I get my fish home? 

 

There are multiple ways to get your catch home. The best and most economical way is to take it in either fish coolers or fish totes and check it as checked baggage on your flight home. Depending on how much fish you have, additional bags will have extra fees. You can also FedEx overnight your catch; however, this can get quite expensive.

 

How many people do you take at a time?

 

On our king salmon trips we take a maximum of 4 people. On our Kodiak trips we also take a maximum of 4 people. And on our silver salmon trips we can take a max of 6 people. In the event that you have a larger group, please let us know as we can certainly accommodate with extra boats and guides!

Why is the deposit non-refundable?

We require a non-refundable deposit for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, we are a small outfitter that caters to each and every individual or group. What this means is that you will be fishing with the owner of the company or one of our specifically hired, highly experienced guides. Because the owners conduct most of our trips, we are generally out of service once the season starts save a day or two every week. Secondly, we take our business extremely seriously and hire the best guides, use the best vessels, the best gear and strive to make every trip the most memorable trip possible. This costs a lot of time and money and we have to pay our guides, our insurance, our equipment maintenance and other expenses. Alaska is also a very desirable destination and once we book your dates, the likelihood of us turning away other guests for those dates is over 90%. Therefore when you book, we want to make sure that you are as committed to us as we are to you.
