We again had the pleasure of taking family, friends, employees, customers, and vendors up to Alaska this year. Kodiak Island is known for its beauty and is called the Emerald Island. It’s also known for its big Silver Salmon. They are hard fighting sons of guns and just a hoot to bring them in. The town of Kodiak is a small town on the island. It has about 7,000 people and it reminds me of the 60’s or 70’s. We go for the genuine camaraderie, local cuisine, sightseeing (even bears), and just generally enjoy the fishing experience.

This was my third time up to Alaska. Every time I think to myself this could not get any better. And I am proven wrong on this trip I had my father accompany me and what a blast. The fishing is incredible from fishing the rivers for silver salmon. To going out in the boat and catching halibut rock fish, King Salmon Gray Codling cod the list goes on. ~anonymous guest
These trips are such a first-class trip without the first class price from the moment I landed to the moment I left I had a great great time. ~Russell Johns
Even though I have guided many trips each year this trip we thoroughly enjoyed the company of approximately 45 folks coming with us to Alaska on our annual yearly trek. It was great getting to see them have a new experience and create fun new memories with family and new friends. Collectively they brought about 3500 lbs of halibut and salmon home. Kodiak Island is a very beautiful place with great people there. We are looking forward to our trip again next year. ~Shaun Heaton
