Southeast Alaska Salmon Fishing on Prince of Wales Island
Southeast Alaska salmon fishing is world renowned. From the brute strength and fierce runs of king salmon to the aerobatic frenzy of silver salmon, in Craig Alaska salmon fishing reaches its pinnacle.
Shelter Cove Lodge is dedicated to providing our guests a salmon fishing charter they will never forget amidst the wild frontier we call home.
All five species of wild Alaska salmon thrive in the protected waters surrounding Shelter Cove lodge on Prince of Wales Island. Your salmon fishing experience begins at our private docks mere footsteps from our doorway.
Ten-hour days of fishing start minutes away from the dock among sheltered waters protected by hundreds of island and thousands of miles of shoreline.
Guests are treated to fishing from new 24-foot Sea Sports or 28 to 33-foot cruisers, the perfect vessels for Craig Alaska salmon fishing. These boats feature powerful and reliable Volvo diesel engines, heated cabins, marine heads, radar, GPS, VHF, and cutting edge Lowrance fish finders.
Our guides are all experts with many years of combined experience in local waters. Mature, friendly, and accommodating, our Coast Guard licensed captains are here to serve the needs and desires of our guests.
Prince of Wales Island salmon fishing requires quality gear, and all our rods, reels, and tackle are perfectly suited for the rugged wilds of our northern waters. Rain gear and boots are provided for all our fishermen when needed.
Our techniques focus on mooching. This is a technique where the vessel is controlled in a drift over massive schools of salmon feeding on conglomerations of baitfish.
Every fisherman holds their own rod, hooks their own fish, and brings them to the boat – if they’re up to the challenge. Salmon are then netted and brought on board to be bled and iced. Action is fast and furious on our charters, and we are famous for frequent salmon limits.
At the dock our own professional cutters will custom prepare all salmon portions to your specifications. Salmon butterflies, steaks and filets are then vacuum-sealed in heavy five-mil bags and flash frozen to minus-20 degrees. These are packed in airline waxed boxes upon your departure and delivered to Alaska Airlines in Ketchikan. Your wild Alaska salmon will stay fresh and delicious for two years!
Wet a line with us at Shelter Cove Lodge for the Alaska salmon fishing adventure of a lifetime.
We target all varieties of salmon, ling cod, halibut, black bass, yellow eye and other salt water fish.
You may create your own menu or select any of a dozen full course dinners we serve.
