Overs and Unders

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

Kodiak Raspberry Island Remote Lodge Viewing Deck

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 […]

Happy Holidays!

Kodiak Raspberry Island Main Lodge

Winter has finally settled in on Raspberry Island (I see my last blog entry was in early July….where did the summer go???), it is snowing, blowing, and 11’F.  The wood stove is crackling and we are snug and warm.  Fisher and Sage are now in 2nd and 1st grade, studying hard, under the excellent tutelage […]

Construction Projects this Spring!

Kodiak Raspberry Island Remote Lodge

May 2012 was an extremely busy month here on Raspberry Island.  My parents moved our family to this property in 1983, which, at that time, was a bare piece of ground covered in Salmon Berry thickets and Alders.  Time, hard work, and determination turned the property into what it is today.  While the lodge and […]
