The Full Alaska Fishing Experience

If you’re in search of a trip guaranteed to provide exciting and memorable experiences worth documenting, you’ve come to the right place. Being on a fishing boat amidst fresh waters and unbelievable sights has even those who are the hardest to impress feeling free as a bird.

With wind in your hair and a rod in your hand, you’ll get to experience what it’s like to live out the rugged Alaskan dream; maxing out on your fish limits and sharing laughs with new friends. Not to mention, there’s very few experiences comparable to excitement of reeling in a fresh catch.

The Magic of Kodiak Island

From beginning to end, a visit to Kodiak Sportsman’s Lodge, Alaska’s treasured fishing grounds, is packed full of true, wild adventure. The lodge is located on Kodiak Island, nestled behind Sitkalidak Island, and was rated the number one fishery in protected waters. It’s a bold statement, but we truly have the best salmon, halibut and lingcod fishing in the world! Don’t believe us? Come and check it out for yourself this summer.

The Epic Fishing Tales

No one visits Alaska without a tale to tell, but especially not after an epic fishing venture. From humble brags to jaw-dropping stories, you’ll be sure to have your listeners “hooked” as you recall the monumental events of your once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Our visitors have experienced hooking a halibut so massive that it took a few people to reel it in, whales waving hello as you patiently await your next catch, or seals acting as fishing competition in the waters! Those who cast their lines in Alaskan waters get to experience a new sense of awe and wonder, and can hardly wait to bring home exciting stories, and maybe even some fresh fish to share along with it.

The Worthwhile Reward

Is there any reward more satisfying than the ability to devour a delicious and flavorful Alaskan fillet for dinner, caught yourself that very day? Talk about as fresh as it gets! We think that everyone should get the opportunity to taste the authenticity of a freshly-caught salmon or halibut, and what better way than to reel it in on your own and let our outstanding Alaskan chefs cook it to perfection for you?

Eating something you caught for dinner brings about feelings of satisfaction and accomplishment. For the lovers of a successful journey, this is the best kind of reward.

An Adventure for the Books

Alaska is an adventure that’s impossible to forget, and when it comes to capturing the experience, the staff at Kodiak Sportsman’s Lodge will ensure you don’t miss a beat.

We not only have the greatest fishing and experienced anglers to guide your trip, but our lodge provides the perfect, relaxing getaway in the middle of Alaska’s epic playground. Come in from a fulfilled, fantastic day of reeling in sea-treasures to a comforting atmosphere where you get to reminisce about your exciting experiences, download photos and swap stories with other anglers while enjoying a cocktail in front of the fireplace.
