THE PREMIER LODGE. Built in 1996 and open year around, we are Craig Alaska’s finest waterfront lodge and charter fishing provider. A decade of service and our nearly 1:1 staffing insures that up to 24 fishermen will receive the promised Southeast Alaska fishing trip of a lifetime and the personal attention they expect and deserve. All ten of our double occupancy rooms are private and furnished with 2 beds, large bath, desk, TV, coffee, micros, refers and telephone. Daily maid service, room service, free laundry and free wireless Internet are also provided.
FULL FISHING DAYS. We don’t believe that you should have to travel to Southeast Alaska and fish on the same day, or over-night on the way to our Craig Alaska fishing lodge. Our schedules allow that you arrive the evening before and leave the morning after 3 or more full ten-hour days of guided charters in our Southeastern Alaska fishing grounds. The normal 4-night stay with us makes your trip far more relaxed, enjoyable and productive.
EXCLUSIVE CHARTERS. We never mix other groups with your group on any of our guided Southeast Alaska fishing charters. Your group may fish in 2’s, 3’s or 4’s on your own, private guided 2400, or up to 6 on a 2800 or on a 3300. Groups may also divide in any other configuration they choose among our fleet of seven custom boats. Your private fishing charter will leave our docks only when and go only where you wish in pursuit of salmon, halibut, lings and other desired species.
PROTECTED FISHING GROUNDS.Within minutes of leaving our Southeast Alaska fishing lodge you could be running free in the sheltered waters of the Alexander Archipelago. There's no need to make long, unproductive runs through open water to get to the fishing hole...it's right outside our front door.
MILLIONS OF FISH. Huge runs of fish have always migrated through Alaska…and Southeast Alaska fishing accounts for much of the most sought after saltwater game fish caught in the entire state. The west coast of Prince of Wales Island abounds with every variety: Kings, Cohos, Chums, Pinks, Halibut, Ling Cod, Yellow Eye, Black Bass and others. It’s not unusual to limit in every available species daily.
SUPERIOR BOATS. In 2004, Sea Sport Boats built our fleet of five custom 2400s. In 2005 we added a 3300 Maxweld and in 2006 a 2800 Almar. All these seaworthy and reliable craft are fully equipped with raised table seating, marine heads, forced-air heat, Volvo diesel engines, Yamaha kickers and loaded with quality tackle and electronics. All are perfectly suited for Southeastern Alaska fishing.
PROFESSIONAL GUIDES. We employee only mature and experienced USCG licensed guides. They combine many years of local guiding experience in Craig Alaska. They all have the proven ability to catch big fish and please our guests. Whether you are a novice or professional fisherman, you will not be disappointed at our Southeastern Alaska fishing lodge.
UNLIMITED FISH PROCESSING. While at sea, your catch is bled and kept on ice. At our docks, experienced professionals will cut, size and process your entire catch to any specification you wish. Then it’s vacuum-sealed in heavy 5 mil bags, frozen, boxed and delivered to the Ketchikan airport ready to fly home with you. The quality of our product is not exceeded by any other Alaska fishing lodge.
FINE DINING. At the end of the day, our fishermen dine in the lodge’s own waterfront restaurant. Create your own menu or select from our extensive menu that features fresh Southeast Alaska seafood, pastas, ribs, choice beef and nightly specials - all prepared by our imported and credentialed chefs. Enjoy fine wines, micro-brews or cocktails while overlooking beautiful Shelter Cove and the pristine islands of Bucareli Bay and Prince of Wales Island.
