When choosing a lodge, it ultimately boils down to the fishing and how committed they are to ensuring a quality experience for their guests. No one can guarantee that the fishing is always red hot, but at Kodiak Lodge we can promise that everything we do is to provide you the very best fishing experience ever.
Our boats were chosen to provide a comfortable, effective platform to catch fish. They have standup heads and heated cabins but are also the right size to get you where the fish are. Not too big and not too small, but still plenty of room to fish.
Our USCG captains are seasoned professionals, each with over a decade of experience fishing the waters out of Larsen Bay. When you get on the boat with our captains, you become part of the team participating in hands on fishing whether setting the downriggers while trolling, jigging for halibut or casting swimbaits to schools of rockfish. The tackle you fish with is the latest high-quality Daiwa rods, reels and line selected for the specific techniques we like to fish. There are always 3-4 different rod setups per person on each boat to match up with the different ways we fish, and most days we utilize each rod on the boat. Each technique is chosen and refined to provide each guest the most effective and fun way to catch the many varieties of fish in our waters.
We’ll take great pride in how we care for your catch by bleeding and icing your catch as soon as it comes aboard the boat. When you return to the lodge your daily catch is filleted, vacuum sealed and flash frozen in our professional grade processing facility.
The Emerald Isle is home to some of the largest salmon runs in the world and is consistently ranked as one of the top three fishing ports in the U.S. Despite our fishing acclaim, we have very little fishing pressure, unlike many lodges where combat fishing is the norm. On a typical day at Kodiak Lodge you may see 4 or 5 other boats when fishing the salt and just a few other groups when fishing the rivers. Often times we will see more Kodiak Brown Bears than people, yet our lodge is in a village with a modern marina, electricity, phone and internet service.
Kodiak Island enjoys some of the best fishing in Alaska and therefore some of the most generous limits. Our limits, per license, per day, include 5 silver salmon, 2 king salmon, 5 rockfish and 2 halibut!
Kodiak Lodge is owned by the Maschmedt family which has been in the lodge business for over 40 years. Our expert guides have almost 30 years of combined experience in these waters and know what it takes to make our guests visit a success. We understand that comfort is a big part of any vacation, so we take special care to provide upscale accommodations, quality equipment and outstanding meals.
