NINES for 12 days of Christmas!

NINES for 12 days of Christmas!

Kodiak Lodge is situated on the “nice” side of Kodiak Island in Larsen Bay. The reason it is the “nice” side is because it gets more warm, sunny days throughout the summer than most places in coastal Alaska. When people ask what the weather is like days before they come up, we usually reply “Sunny & 70” and it’s the truth! For that reason our Captains wear quality sunglasses to protect their eyes from the sun’s rays and their reflection off the water. We have partnered with NINES Optics to provide our Captains with Polarized High Performance Sunglasses for the upcoming season. To keep in the giving spirit of the holidays, we will be giving away a pair of NINES Polarized High Performance Glass Lens sunglasses for every trip booked this December, a $159 per person value!

Why NINES?

NINES Optics offers Polarized High Performance Glass & Polycarbonate lenses with multiple frame & lens colors to choose from. The glasses feature Nirtech Technology that not only blocks Ultra Violet, but also Infrared light.  To learn more about their lens technology click here. Here are some recommendations from our Captains:

  • Blue Mirror Glass lenses are the best choice for saltwater fishing as the open water produces a lot of glare. This lens is the darkest and offers the most protection from UV & IR light.
  • Glass is the preferred lens material in saltwater as it is highly scratch resistant. Dried saltwater residue on other lens materials will quickly scratch the lenses because of the abrasive nature of the salt.
  • Amber lenses are best for river fishing, as it has great contrast for sight fishing. They are also the best all-around for a variety of activities or driving.
  • You will appreciate the eye protection from the reflection off all the chrome on our boats…

Come on up and enjoy the beautiful weather next summer while catching a variety of fish on calm waters. Just be sure to remember some sunscreen!
