Plan Your Trip

Before packing for your adventure here in Sitka, Alaska, you’ll probably be wondering what to bring—we’ve got it covered. Because once you’re here, we have all the equipment and gear you need, in just the right size. Relax, have fun, and let us take care of the rest.

Less Is More

The less you bring, the more room you’ll have for fish on the way back. Since we have all the equipment and gear, you won’t need more than a carry on. Your gear will be waiting for you when you arrive.

Packing List

  • Warm, layered clothing
  • Lightweight jacket
  • Sweater or vest
  • Long underwear
  • Gloves and hat

We’ll ask for your size before you come, so your boots and rain gear will be expecting you.

Day in the Life

  • Each day looks the same on paper, but you’ll soon find out that no two days are identical in Sitka's waters. That's the adventure of it.

  • 4:45 AM:

    Your wake up call starts the day off right. While you prep for 10 hours of fun, we'll be making breakfast and getting the boats ready.

  • 5:15 AM:

    Enjoy a home-cooked breakfast and as much hot coffee, tea, and juice as you can hold.

  • 5:50 AM:

    Locked and loaded, we’ll head to the dock where the boats will be warmed up and ready to go.

  • 6:00 AM:

    We'll head out for a full day of fishing—and have a hardy lunch onboard, so we don’t have to stop.

  • 3:30 PM:

    When we get back to the dock, we can snap pictures of the day’s catch before the crew processes the fish for seamless transport.

  • 4:00 PM

    Enjoy appetizers at the lodge, watch the sun go down over the Sitka Sound, and swap stories with new friends.

  • 6:00 PM

    Dinner is served. Our typical menu includes: fresh salmon, dungeness crab, prime rib, halibut, salads, homemade rolls, and a variety of vegetables. Finish it off with dessert and fresh coffee.
