Two retired professors from Auburn University wanted to fish while escaping the summer heat. Kodiak Island was perfect, we never broke a sweat. Fishing for salmon, halibut and other species of lesser name was the aim. We were not disappointed and our home freezers hold the proof. The big one that did not get away weighed 121 lb ( see pictures ). Tiffany and the children were tending to family duties in South Dakota but Birch took good care of us along with his attentive help. Accomodations were excellent as was the food. Along with the fish, we helped trap Tanner crabs which were served fresh and hot at the end of the day while Birch cleaned the days catch. A half day, fly-in bear watch did not disappoint. Our experience was worth every penny and we recommend Raspberry Island Remote Lodge to anyone who would like to experience the beauty, wildlife and fishing that Alaska has to offer. Thanks Birch!
