Kodiak Raspberry Island Remote Lodge


Facebook Updates

Throughout the year, especially during the summer months, I do my best to journal on our lodge’s Facebook Page.  I also do my best, with our limited internet, to post video and pictures as frequently as I can, as well.  Winter time posts are whatever I can find; what does Raspberry Island look like under 2” […]

New Talent On the Gemini and Artemis

John the Legend and I are retiring this year.  John will return to his sweetheart Christy and their beautiful remote property on Kodiak, where they’ll grow many of the fresh, organic vegetables we serve.  I won’t completely ‘retire,’ but will step back and spend more time with my family and help manage the lodge and […]

New Halibut Regulations for 2015

New Halibut regulations were imposed on Charter Anglers in March of 2015 for Area 3A, which includes Kodiak, Homer, Seward, Valdez, Yakutat, and all the way down to Elfin Cove, where even more stringent regulations have already been in place South of Elfin Cove in Area 2C, encompassing all of South East Alaska.

Overs and Unders

2014 was the first year I can remember that our halibut limit changed.  While the Southeast Alaska sport fishery has been plagued by many, many slot limits and harvest limit reductions, our regulations now state that while we may still harvest 2 halibut per person per day, one must be 29 inches long or smaller. […]

Fly Out Fishing

Ahh, it’s that time of year again, Spring. The whales are returning and feeding in front of the lodge, Brown Bears are waking up, and the Sockeye Salmon are starting to think about coming home to spawn, back to the very rivers they were born in. Every year we are asked by potential guests if […]

Early Booking

This will mark our sixth season since Tiffany and I bought the lodge and business from my parents in 2008. I grew up here on Raspberry Island, helping my folks develop the property and working for them during the summer seasons, and Tiffany first visited Raspberry Island in May of 2001, ultimately working here as […]

Sea Kayaking

One of the things that make Raspberry Island special is the incredible sea kayaking opportunities that start right in front of the lodge.  We have 5 Necky two-person kayaks, and 4 Necky single person kayaks.  These boats are nice and wide, suitable for beginners, yet are designed to glide through the water quietly as we […]

A Humble Thank You

Tiffany and I would like to thank those of you who are joining us again this year on Raspberry Island.  Returning guests and those of you who have been referred to us by a past guest make up a large part of our business every year.  This year we are humbled to say that our […]
