Fishing

In the remote Alaskan waters of Sea Otter Sound, we offer self guided fishing for the adventurous independent angler which includes husbands and wives, grandparents and grandkids plus many fathers and sons or daughters. Monster Halibut, Ling Cod, King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Pink Salmon, Yellow Eye or Black Bass, our goal is to give you the fish catching adventure of a lifetime. We will tailor a package that fits your fishing abilities and preference.

 

 

Self Guided Fishing

Without a doubt, this is one of our most popular packages! Designed for both the experienced angler and the novice, this is what our guests return year after year for. Imagine fishing without anyone else around except your fellow lodge guests. Humpback whales and eagles are your companions. The silver salmon bite is fast and furious. Before you know it, both you and your fishing partner are limited out with your 6 silvers apiece. Take them back to the lodge for processing, maybe a short nap, then back out for Ling Cod and Halibut! This is Sea Otter Sound magic!

Our boats are top of the line JetCraft deep water boats. Each is 18’ or 19’ with a forward helm and electric start. Our boats are powered by 60 HP four stroke Yamaha Bigfoots. Garmin 160c color sounders and Garmin 441c GPS’ show you where the fish are. Standard Horizon VHF radios keep you in touch with your fellow fishermen and the lodge, half canvas keeps you dry during the S.E. Alaska rain. We equip you with the best in fishing tackle and gear. Lamiglas rods, Penn GT reels, Shimano Charter Specials reels, McCoy tournament line, hand tied Gamakatsu leaders, Hot Spot flashers, Abe & Al dodgers, frozen herring and the most productive lures for the bite. On request, we will outfit your boat with a Scotty hand crank downrigger and 10 pound cannon ball. Great for those deep king salmon.

When you return to the lodge, the staff will land you, off load your catch and hang them for pictures. The staff will then park your boat in the slip and give it a thorough scrubbing. Your boat is re-stocked with leaders and re-fueled for your next day’s fishing adventure! Your catch is immediately processed by our staff in labeled vacuum bags, and frozen.
