Kodiak Alaska Lodge • Kodiak Fishing Lodge • Kodiak Island Lodge
Fun day yesterday though we couldn't produce a big halibut or many salmon again. Got a nice limit of chicken halibut, including a pair of yellow eyes, and two Silvers and a small King, and two small rockfish for sashimi. Welcome Art Mark and Scott, celebrating their 15th trip to our lodge this year! Also spotted a pair of Orcas passing by, apparently they came up into the Straits in front of the lodge yesterday afternoon as well.
Argh! More fog lying over the Kodiak airport cancels commercial flights coming and going into Kodiak City; two groups delayed arriving yesterday, one getting in late last night and hopefully the other getting in this am. One group delayed getting out of Kodiak and rescheduling their flights home. Meanwhile gorgeous sunshine on Raspberry Island and Don and Min and kids went on a fly out bear view, spotting 10 bears and having a great experience!
Absolutely beautiful day yesterday and got to fish wherever we wanted. Had a tough time finding a big fish, but eventually headed for the 'chicken hole' and got a gaggle, then some slow trolling picked up a nice King and one silver. Great time with 4 kids under 12 years old on the boat, they are a hoot, but 'Captain' is pretty tired by the end of the day! Similar day on Artemis, catch a lot of fish, but having a tough time breaking 50#. Another beautiful day today.
